1. Submarine Cook – $175,000
A submarine cook is considered an important position because food is one of the only things Navy men have to look forward to when they are at sea for long periods of time. Because of the confined space and long periods of time at sea, it is also a job that not many people want to do. A submarine cook must spend much of his time cooking in a small, hot, stuffy space for many hungry people with no access to supplies other than what is on the submarine.
