Fleet Marine Life #140 – Recruiter Lied | iHateTheUSMC
Recruiters are smooth talking salesmen that are there to make sure you sell your soul to Uncle Sam for 4 years. Recruiters need bodies or else their careers will go in the shitter. Pretty much every single recruiter is a careerist forced beyond his will to recruit. They need bodies and they will get it by any means necessary. They will definitely lie. They honestly don't give a shit if they don't meet their end of the bargain. My recruiter didn't lie to me. He simply misled me. He put me in front of this book with a list of fields. Each field had a list of MOSes. I chose a field that looked good, because it had the MOS I wanted. Fast-forward a few months later and I get my MOS. Something I didn't want. I thought to myself, "No way. This does not sound like anything in the field I chose." I look in my SRB and lo-and-behold, my MOS is in that field… sandwiched between all the wanted MOSes. Recruiters can lie and they will get away with it. If they promise something, you need evidence.
