each school house uses a different matrix now. For ours they don't factor your prior unit into it anymore, but they give us a chance to choose between ourselves before they decide for us.
Good grades, volunteer, be professional, don't look like a hot mess or come hungover to class and you'll do quite fine.

Is OS still a Critical rate? I really want to be an OS and my recruiter told me he can help me with Guaranteed "A" School if it still a critical rate when they do my DEP, Tomorrow, I get my ship date and the DEP date, Im really anxious about it, he said he have good news for me, but didn't told me on the phone. Thanks for any reply.

Husband I have a question,I've been here at my first unit for a few weeks,recently I put my name on the OS A School list because I really enjoy the job they do. My XPO told me my name is on the list and I'm on a security hold. I know they are doing double classes for OS A school right now so hopefully I will be near the top when they update the list next month depending on how many people they take for the July convening. My question is will I still get orders if I'm on a security hold and if not how long does a Secret clearance normally take to be processed?

Does anyone have any information on civilian jobs that OS relates to? I'm thinking about joining the reserves in Louisville KY as an OS, but I would like for my CG job and my civilian job to be coherent, if possible. I'm in my middle twenties and a little confused on what to do with myself career wise. I'm super interested in joining the CG, and I'm sticking with just reserves because I'm married and my husband isn't really interested in uprooting. Otherwise, I would definitely go active duty.  If OS is a job that I enjoy, I would like to pursue it/something similar to it elsewhere.

I was a little disturbed by a comment that someone (USCG Officer) made to me, which was that  they thought the OS job was the "most unfavorable" job for reservists. They said this was b/c of the amount of time needed to qualify for watch standing, and that reservists just aren't able to get the hours in to qualify.  Any comments on this?

Think 911 dispatcher. Being a Reservist is pretty much what you make of it. If you put in the hours and the effort you'll be dually rewarded. Putting in the hours can be tough as a Reservist, so you'll have to study in between drills to keep yourself current.

This thread hasn't been touched in awhile and I'm currently contemplating between choosing SK or OS as my rate. I've gotten alot of great information about SK on this site and was wondering if anyone could tell me their experiences as an OS.

Here are some questions I have if anyone can answer them, would be great!

1. Is OS "A" school still guaranteed?
2. If not, how long can I expect to be on the "A" School wait list? And do I still have to wait the 4 months to put my name on the list since this is a critical rate(atleast I still think it is.)
3.Where are entry level OS's usually stationed?
4. What kind of work schedule can I expect? I know it depends on the unit but just to get an idea.
5.What room(if any) is there for advancement?
6.How important are math skills for this job?

That's all I can think of for the moment. Any feedback is greatly appreciated

1: no
2: Currently, 6 to 12 months.
3: Cutters, Sectors, Districts, Commstas, VTS....all kinds of places
4: Depends on where you are stationed. We are a 24/7 job, so expect to work nights, weekends, and holidays.
5: There's lots of room for advancement. Just like any other rate. We advance quickly, until Chief. There things stall out a lot. You need seatime, and it can be difficult to get.
6: Not that important, but you will need some.

Any other questions, just ask
Honor: if you need it defined, you don’t have it.

Thanks for the quick response!

In regards to work schedules. What does a typical day look like? I know it all depends on what rotation you get but it's always nice to have an example 

Also, I read on other forums that OS are usually stationed at sectors and land units. I'm sure they are on every cutter out there but is it common to get stationed on one right out of "A" school. And in regards to "A" do they teach you everything you need to know? Seems like a scary job to have if you don't know what the hell your doing!

According to the current A School list, the 4 month wait at your first unit is not required at this time. Can that change? Absolutely. But for today that is the rule.

And in regards to "A" do they teach you everything you need to know? Seems like a scary job to have if you don't know what the hell your doing! 

My work schedule is this: 2 days on, 2 days off, sliding weekends.  So, I work: Monday, Tuesday, off Wednesday, Thursday, work Friday, Saturday, Sunday, then reverse it.  Off Monday, Tuesday, work Wednesday, Thursday, off Friday, Saturday, Sunday.  I work 12 hours each day, 7 to 7.  Every 4 weeks I switch from days to nights.  Some units are 3 days on, 3 days off.  I know someone who is 4 days on, 4 days off, 8hour shifts.  I have another friend who is off 4 days, works a 12 hour day shift, followed by a 12 hour night shift, then off again.  It is so varied.

80% of us are on land units.  If you get a cutter is a crap shoot.  We had 1 cutter billet out of a-school, but we had someone that just reported and said their list was 50/50 land cutters.  That was completely opposite of all the classes that were there when I was in Petaluma last year.  Each of the 8 classes that went through in that time only has a cutter or two each.  We are only on cutters 210' and up.  Often times with cutter billets they are male only/female only so that will come into play.

They teach you a lot in a school.  But when you show up at your unit, you will realize you know nothing. Don't worry, your unit will train you (everyone has their own list of requirements, so I can't tell you what that process will be like for you) on their equipment.  And I don't care how trained you are at a-school or during your break-in period, you hear Mayday that first time, you try not to soil your pants.  It's a very exciting at times, but it can be very, very dull - and it is dull, most of the time.  You literally sit around for hours, sometimes days, doing nothing.  Most of us take a lot of college classes, so there is an upside.  But when you get a case though, all hell breaks lose.  A lot of people really hate being an OS.  They want to be out there, they can't stand sitting around.  Please know this when you get it.  I love it, but it is NOT for everyone.  I would not recommend it if you didn't know what you were getting yourself into.

When you have a crew of a boat that abandons ship in the middle of the Gulf of Alaska, with no life raft, and no way of communicating with them once they jump ship, you get really scared.  To finally hear from them again after several hours and know that they are ok thanks to a fellow mariner, and to tell them we have sent out a helo that will be in in 30 minutes, well, nothing compares to the satisfaction.  We still have no idea how those people survived, nevermind without suffering hypothermia.

Wow! Thank you for the awesome response.

You said you love being an OS, what do you love about it?

What type of work do you do?

I've definitely heard people say that OS is a boring rate and if you want action it's not for you. So, in other words are you sitting at a desk all day? What is the scenario like. I'm really trying to decide between SK and OS!

Florida Girl, also tell her the things you don't like as much about the job. I know when I was a nonrate that was exploring my options, I was always more influenced by the things people didn't like about their jobs as compared to what they did like.
You can meet the standard, or you can set the standard. It's your choice.

Roger that, Chief.

I'll start with the bad. This is probably the single most boring job in the CG. Seriously DULL. You have no freakin' idea. Some places are busier than others, my unit is pretty slow. I could explain why (because I am on watch and have nothing better to do today) but its irrelevant. SK and OS are both desk jobs. At least as an SK, if your work is done and your command is cool, you can go home a bit early. You get off for Morale events. Red letter days you get off. Us? Ha. Very funny.

Let me take a step to the side real quick though - any rate can have watch/duty in the CG. My fiance is a YN and he stands duty once every two weeks, so that means he spends the night at his unit because someone has to be there at all times. Depends on the unit what this duty entails, but everyone takes a turn. And yes, your turn could be on Christmas. Welcome to the military. As an OS, since standing watch is all we do, we get out of this requirement. So that can be a perk. HOWEVER, if your normal watch rotation falls on a holiday, you work. For me, I have a 50/50 chance of working a major holiday, while my fiance only has 1 in 14, see the difference?

Being an OS, especially one just out of a-school, is kinda crappy. It's not all search and rescue planning, or whatever it is most people believe when they start out. You sit in a booth and listen to static. For 12 hours. That's a long freakin' time. Yes, it does ruin your hearing. We were told in a-school that an OS (and whatever rate in the Navy is a radio operator) is the only job that the VA gives automatic disability to after you get out. Now, this could be old news, but yeah, I could by it. However, as you advance, you will get the chance to do all the cool things. But you have to work your way up.

The plus side: Honestly, yes the job is mostly the bad. But as I have mentioned, my dad was a firefighter. He joined to fight fires and save lives. But how often was that? Oh sure, over his entire career quite a few times. But daily? It was mostly dull stuff. Waiting around, cleaning the trucks, making sure things where ready. But when that alarm sounded, oh boy! You have to kind of think of it that way. Is the satisfaction of working a case enough to outweigh everything else? For a lot of people, that's a no. Maybe it would be easier to deal with if they were actually on a boat or a helo in all the action. But that stuff isn't for me. Oh sure, it's fun and all. But I really enjoy being the cool, level one in the middle of someone else's chaos. Someone calls out Mayday, and it's a serious thing. You don't know what's going on. Most times, they are scared out of their minds. You are in control, you are the reassurance. You are the answer to their prayer that someone hears them and knows they need help. For me that is immensely satisfying. It can be a lot of stress too, because you just don't know sometimes. Did I get the right position? What was that sound I heard just now? And yes, there are ways to deal with this, but when you aren't there, it's a whole other kind of frustration.

Another big perk for me is the variety of things you can do. Being on a cutter is totally different, so I can't really describe that side to you. Once I advance a bit, I can plan the SAR cases, which is really cool. You look at so many different factors, and say, "We need to send this asset here." That involves a lot of planning, experience, forethought, and just flat out good judgement when you have no other clue. If I really want to change, I can go to a VTS, or the Vessel Traffic Service. It's like an air traffic controller for ships. I can take a job working with Secret/Top Secret material. I can work in emergency managment. I love that I have some variety. Once you become a non-rate, ask your command to go to a Sector and see what we do. Just remember, 90% boredom, 10% chaos. Gotta live for the 10%!

Well put. Every job has its good and bad qualities. I am fairly sure that I would have had a happy career no matter which rating I chose. I decided to be an SK because the SK's at my unit always seemed to be happy. I realize that isn't the best way to decide your future career, but it was enough for me at the time. There have been days where I wished I had chosen a job with more action to it, but overall I am happy with my decision. I advanced to Chief Petty Officer in less than 13 years (I hit my 13 year mark this coming week), and there's still plenty of time to make Master Chief before I retire. If I had it to do all over again, there's a good chance I would have made the same decision. However, I think I could have also been happy being a PA, DC, or MK. One of the greatest things about the Coast Guard is having the ability to choose whatever rating you want, as long as you qualify for it on the ASVAB and medically. That being the case, it's a decision that shouldn't be taken lightly. You have to find the job that appeals to you the most, fits your personality and work ethic, and ultimately makes you the happiest. Things like the speed of advancement and re-enlistment bonuses are nice, but they should be somewhat of an afterthought, since advancement rates and bonuses have a way of changing from year to year.

You can meet the standard, or you can set the standard. It's your choice.

I have a question.  I am attending OS A school in a week and I have a mustache.  I know at basic (despite the reg's) we were not allowed any facial hair whatsoever.  Is it different at A school? 

Thank you

P.S.  I would like to hear from people who have attended A school, not SN/FN's who have heard from friends and certainly not mom's who think they are the ultimate source of information on anything CG because they misunderstood a quickly typed email from thier son who just got off the midwatch about a story they heard from an officer about a guy they served with on the Eagle who was an ancient BMCM who...  yadayadayada.  Thanky you.

Woah, the PS was really rude. Drop the attitude. Most of the Mom's on this forum have been around a bit and know what they are talking about. And I wouldn't talk poorly about other SN/FNs if you are one.  Remember, you are about to start your training as a Petty Officer.  You need to learn to lead by example and follow your superiors with due respect.  This includes online. 

But yes, you can have a mustache, it's in regs. All of the guys in my class grew theirs out for "Mustache May".

FG, That little snot is mine. He is mocking THIS mom in particular! He isn't actually that rude, that was for my benefit because I talk about the forum to him. As you can see by his abundance of posts he isn't here very often, he hears those sorts of stories from me all the time... all while rolling his eyes. (Since I'm a mom, I can hear the eye roll over the phone even!) As for the SN/FN thing, he just doesn't want speculation from someone that hasn't been there, just someone that has been to Petaluma and know what's expected there. He knows what he has heard, he wants to know people know!

I'd say my bad, but since I was clueless and missed the sarcasm, I apologize for nothing   Especially since I was defending his mom!  Since he's heard the stories, then I assume I can be forgiven since we do occasionally get REAL brats on here.

 

EDIT: I don't know...Febu-hairy, Mustache March, Mustache May, Mo-vember.  I think the men just want an excuse for facial hair.  I don't get it.

I threatened to draw in a unibrow the last day of Movember. Had no idea about Decembrow though haha.

Conan grew out a mustache for Movember. It came to see me the first week of December and before he got here asked me if he should keep it or not. I think my response was "You don't shave, I don't shave." He shaved. HA! He looks very dashing with some chin stubble, but mustache? Not on him. Ewww.

OG2 got it on the nose by what meant by my PS. I meant it seriously with a touch of sarcasm. I just hear alot of stories about inexperienced people who haven't even been to MEPS and think they are an encylopedia of knowledge.

Anyway, thank you for the replies. Your help is keeping little Roberto alive

Oh God, he named it. We are all doomed!

YN1 Dawson will either love you for your 'stache if it is good, or call you out if it sucks. I'll let you figure out which side you fall on.

E, we never had anyone get in trouble for hair too long, and we had some long haired guys!  They do get on your about the behind the neck tapper though.  That way in Kodiak too.
