Need help with a decision. Currently I'm at Sultan entering my third week of my AET course, however, I'm always wondering whether i'd be better of as an ETME(SM). I think I may be better suited to the lifestyle, the shifts, and the money isn't bad either. Everyone says AET is the best job in the navy but i've heard of a lot of AET's being discontent with their jobs, on the otherhand, i've never met an unhappy submarine, they're always passionate about their jobs. Looking for advice from people who have been in the job for a few years and have first hand experience of either life as an AET or ETME(SM). Or maybe advice from people who have worked close to people in these jobs and know a bit of what they entail. I want to know more about the lifestyle, the promotion opportunities, the benefits, and the job opportunities when you leave! I tried to go the AFCO today to get some of these answers but it was bloody closed. I've spoke to people on base as well but they've never satisfied my queries.
