What are the benefits of referring a recruit, and when do you see these benefits?
ps. I didn't get my ass kicked referring this guy
he will kick your ass after boot
I was promoted to E3 by referring two for the army. Do marines do something like this?
Promoted from e2 to e3 quicker, or straight from e1 to e3?
I've never heard of anyone coming out of USMC boot as an e-3 unless they were platoon honor man or guide or something.
No clue i'm taking my recruit in tonight will ask. I know I get promoted to e-2 for my college credits. I have a vague memory of my recruiter saying I could be promoted to private first class or some shit if I referred a certain number
Well, USMC E-2 = PFC. I don't think you can pick up LCpl by referrals.
Was an E3 in basic. Got E2 for my first referral while in the DEP and E3 for my second referral.
Army FTW. E4 during basic and E5 during OCS with a college degree.
Jesus. What is the diff in pay tho?
Well i'm stopping into the office tonight to do some pull-ups, i'm going to ask. I remember my recruiter telling me I get 20k prorated by 12 months, so as far as pay goes, I guess that's pretty good
Pay is the same for all branches
Full pay chart:
I know the National Guard does the extra rank up to E3 and they give $2000 referal bonus. $1000 for signing the contract and $1000 when they leave for basic
I got E2 maybe a month early for referring one of my best friends. I didn't really care about that though, it's the best thing that he's ever done.
my referral pussed out. His brother is Army and shit talks Marines to no end.
I've brought in 3 under this program, but none signed. One girl said she would sign if I split the cash with her. I told her I couldn't do that and she said she would rather join the Navy. I called her bluff, but she didn't even join the Navy. Saw her over Christmas holding hands with some redneck guy. Oh well.
Yeah your not suppose to split any money with them but what they dont know wont hurt them
Fuck it, might as well smoke some weed while you are at it. Hell, why pay attention to any of the rules, as long as no one gets hurt, right?
hookers and blow
Look at your comp score calculator and it will show you the extra points you get.
don't worry about it, work hard and you'll be a corporal before you know it
