MPGS locations

I've signed off from the regs and have about 5 months left. I've just got the info pack for joining the MPGS and part of the form is choosing locations where you would like to be posted.
I was just wondering from the MPGS guys out there which posts you have found to be really good and which you would try to avoid.

Guardroom is your best post. Avoid the gate.
 
Most of the posts by Biscuits are awful
 
RAF St Mawgan - good place, good boss, good blokes and the raf look after us.

RNAS Culdrose - avoid like the plague, Navy dont give a toss about the MPGS. Dead mans shoes for promotion because no-one wants to move, then they all whine like feck because they dont get promoted.

Plus, Helston's full of the retarded mong offspring of WAFU versus civvy night-on-the-lash-gedditup'er experiments.

STAY AWAY FROM EDINBURGH IF YOU WANT PROMOTION UNLESS YOUR EX RHF
 
ref mpgs postings: i have a source that says avoid deepcut/pirbright i have 2 collegues who moved to catterick it was that bad

where you want to get posted depends on what service is serving there: ie army/navy/raf? it's basically your choice on the type of service you wish to work with

however their are bad sites as some1 mentioned which r dead mans shoes that hold up other people who wish to move up the ranking,.

good luck with your application

I am serving MPGS in the portsmouth area.

Some of my colleagues have worked on navy sites and state that they are good, with flexibility and trust for us.

I hear the RAF sites are excellent as you are well treated and the locations are good also.

I work on a tri-service unit and it is great, good team, left to get on with the job and trusted.

Hope that helps.
 
depends on what you want to do and where you want to go !, check out the sites you have in mind. Usually a good bunch of blokes

Hi mate, I'm a Full screw in the dreaded Pirbright/Deepcut Platoon! Its not actually that bad and seems to be improving but, to be honest it does have its moments! Its very busy with four different locations. Promotions are pretty good, because the turn around of blokes can be rapid!

We know that the place gets alot of bad press but its mainly because we have to be rigid because of the whole 'Deepcut' thing and the RLC don't want another one of their little loves swallowing a round.

But theres plenty of sites out there and I would recommend the job to anyone.
 
Hi Guys,

Firstly i'm glad to hear the Deepcut/Pirbright area is improving which can only be a good sign for the MPGS in a whole, along with other sites mention'd here (Edinburgh for example)

Postings within the MPGS can be varied, however like i've said doing PLENTY of reserch/homework will reep it's benifits,

i've not had the joy of working on a Army/Raf site as of yet, the trouble is if you read the latest issue of Squaddie mag (a few letters) that even after 10yrs :evil: of the service/regt going their are still a lot of issue's still not being sorted out! JPA & APC being blamed for a quite a few things, hopefully these problems & issues will improve but i don't hold my breath!!

Avoid joining its shit, you get shafted big time thats why the govt just halved mgs and put mpgs in p1 p2 sites you can get called in on days off if short staffed back stabbing is bad, if u must join better get used to licking arse if you want to be kept on for contract renewal upset the boss and your fucked out of a job, mind u in some places u can have as many ND's as u like

Jesus that doesn't sound good. I'm currently in the latter stages of applying. Where are you based? Is that the general consensus or just you?

Im ex mgs but worked alongside mpgs, some of thiers came to us and ive know a couple go to them but no many, ive got mates I served with who are mpgs and the only thing that attracts them is accommodation but then ive heard that u have to go on a waiting list for married quater now, im not bitter I fucked off from the mgs cos thats gone down the pan now too, I just wouldnt want anyone joining mpgs without really thinkin about it, if u like shooting and standing on gates in the pissing rain then crack on

If you're on the gate tomorrow, Say hello to the bloke in the shiny red van at 1145!
