Working at the Welfare office is the worst job ever. I am greatful to have a job and it puts food on the table but not much pay, not rewardng at all and highly stressful. Not to mention the stuff you have to listen to all day from people that don't want to better themselves.
They need to straighten out the Number 3 job, Enlisted Military Personnel. You cannot make the rank of E-7 in 8 years. Unless you are in a special program and enter basic training as E-3, in 1 year you're E-4,
another 2 years E-5 , then 3 years E-6, then 3 more years for E-7 which would take 9 years. Not to mention you need to be the near perfect soldier to get timely promotions on 1st attempts.
Yes, I see the little PLUS sign after 8 years. But for most to make E-7 you need to be in a high priority profile job that has openings for promotion. There are certain requirements to be met, probably the command your assigned to, and the selection committee / interview process to get E-7.
It be rare to make it in 8, unlikely in 9, possible in 10, better chance in 12 to 14, if you're really good at your job and professional while both on and off duty 12 years. Otherwise look for 16 to 20 years to make E-7 if you're in the correct MOS / occupation. For E-8 and E-9 generally 20 plus years or dedicated Lifer.
OH! I am a Lifer myself with nearly 26 years of military service. (All Post Vietnam). Been retired since 2004. I'm also a registered National Society, Sons of the American Revolution member as my 4th Great Grandfather fought in the AR., 1 in the French Indian Wars. Have both my paternal and maternal 2nd Great Grandfathers in the Civil War. Then WWI and WWII. Several relatives Korean War and Vietnam. A nephew who been injured twice by IED's in the recent Iraq/Afghanistan wars. My father couldn't serve as he was striken by Polio as a child which left him with a couple disabilities. But my brother and myself , Uncles and cousins have gone on as typical Patroits for our country.
Ask anyone, worst job is the military and getting shot at. No one wants to take a life but under circumstances may be left with no choice. So think about it, what is the worst job ? Kill or be killed.
The Military. Then the environment / conditions and hours we are placed under.
Unemployed people who have submitted their resume to hundreds upon hundreds of job postings, and rarely get an interview or response.
We are still severely lacking job opportunities in many areas of the country.
I would love a job as a meter reader. I didn't even think that job is still out there. I would say being a public school teacher in Chicago would really suck or even parts of L.A.
