    Hello!

    I will be shipped to boot camp very soon. I have been talking to my friends and family about it since I started searching, reading, and visiting my recruiter. I have some friends that are interested in joining the USCG too... they are waiting for me to get through BOOT Camp lol and the NON RATE suffering before themselves.

    Well... I really like to talk and educate people about the Coast Guard and their job, benefits, core values, etc.

    I asked once and they told me that I would have to be an E-5 and that I will know how to become a recruiter when that time arrives...

    I am not planning to become a recruiter soon... I am not even a coastie yet... I just want to know how is the process.



    need money to pay my bills before joining the coast guard. full webpages starting at $300!

    Once you are en E-5, you put in a package (request) to go into recruiting duty. They generally solicit for volunteers once or twice per year. There is some paperwork to be done, and an interview process. If you get through that part, you then have to be released from your rating by your assignment officer. If you get through that, you get orders to a recruiting office. That's it in a nutshell.

    I don't recommend this job for someone with less than 10 years in though. The reason for that is that because you are removed from your rating, you would have a hard time learning everything you need to learn in order to advance in your rating. If you do it too early in your career, you could miss out on valuable learning that could slow down your advancement (promotion) process.

    Thank you very much and I agree, 10 years looks like a reasonable time for a recruiter. Are there additional benefits? Bonuses or something like that? Just to know.

    SDAP = Special Duty Assignment Pay

    It is used as incentive pay to get people into jobs that have a hard time staying fully staffed.

    This will give you an idea of what you'll need to be familiar with when you apply. http://www.uscg.mil/hq/capemay/Trai...School.asp

    Check for the solicitation in the spring each year. Do your homework before you apply. Once you've screened successfully and have been released from your rating you either accept your orders, RILO or SILO. You won't see the shopping list until you've been released from rating. 

    Interviews are conducted at the RO nearest your unit with the RIC and an officer from CGRC.  Last year there were about 90 open billets but there were several hundred applicants.  The year before that there were a couple hundred again but only 60 billets.  It can be tough getting selected but you can really help improve your chances with your interview and ensure you're advancing or at least taking SWEs.
