    I'm at in OTS right now (not right now we are on leave) but we cant even have our music up that loud. But thats pretty much what our rooms look like and my roommate is 34 so I dont think he will be doing that.

    OTS, i'll be honest there are people there who need every min of every day to get things done and there are people who are done with everything at 1900 every night. Its diffrent for diffrent people.

    I just watched the OTS video on the Air Force site. Why is everyone running around in tennis shoes all the time, even with cammies? Also, the video says that half way through, you start training the new people. What exactly are you teaching them, if you are new yourself?

    you only wear tennis shoes with bdu's on the leadership course thing, I dont know why but other then that you only wear them for PT. And yea there is an upper class v lower class deal where people who have been there 5-6 more weeks then you think they know it all and try to make sure you are "trained". Interactment with TI's is non existant after day 3 other then some drill in week 2. the yelling and screaming and BS comes from the upper class not TI's thats the only reason I have had any problems there. A TI can yell at me all day I get that, its the guy who knows no more then me who has worse test scores and pt scores and nothing more then the fact that he was given a class date that was one before mine and he thinks he is god now.

    keep that in mind when you are reaming your enlisted guys if they do jobs that you know nothing about

    O I know, I have hald many managment jobs before getting into OTS I know when I know what is going on and when to keep out, I am not a micromanager...I wont be a quarter of what was done to me when dealing with my lower class, yelling dosent get you results, making expectations clear and giving guidelines does get results.

    which means, stands there and gets paid ... usually on the ship, the officers look like they do alot but never have anything to do with anything that isnt paper or safety related...not saying that they dont know more to be able to be involved...i do know alot of officers that know more shit than me about general navy stuff...but 75% of the work that goes on in the navy is not that.

    My LtCol doesnt know crap about the job :rofl:
    your commander or officers job is to keep the heat off of you and your teammates, its your NCO's and SNCO's that manage the job

    and this is pretty much ALWAYS the case regardless of job history of the officer

    my DIVO is a LT that has been in 22 years, 18 of which he was enlisted in an electronics rating (EW/CTT) and now hes in charge of us (ET's) and while knowing a good bit about electronics, he realizes he doesnt really know shit about our gear, because to know you need to be there, then, and have specific training on exactly that stuff....he does a good job of not assuming too much and only sticking his nose into the basics of it when he needs to...other than that, his job is to keep the heat off of us from the captain

    EDIT: im bad at ranting with a ton of commas.....whatev back to watching the Pulse
