A Great Way to Become a productive leader
25Q (Current Employee), Columbus, OHMay 1, 2015
Pros: Free College Education
Cons: Long periods away from home
The best thing about being in the national guard is the life experience that comes with it. Anyone can learn job skills by going to college, or a tech school. Being a soldier enables you to learn job skills in the field, while also challenging you to be a leader and take on multiple roles in high stress locations. Developing these skills transfer over to the civilian sector very well.

An excellent place to start.
Communications Specialist/Assistant Section Chief (Former Employee), Pomona, CAApril 30, 2015
Pros: The ability to learn new skill and have some room for advancement.
Cons: Some take advantage and advance without meeting requirement, some prefer personal gain over integrity.
The U.S. Army is an excellent place to go for Direction. They don't ask for any kind of experience and they will train you for a specific job and to prepare you for your future. They will, in essence, feed you, cloth you, train you, and get paid for it. The benefits are excellent with Medical and Dental available through the V.A. and other private companies. You get to travel to places where you are needed and and the hardest part for me was leaving. I enjoyed it because I was part of something bigger.

Best Job I've Ever Had
89B Ammunition Specialist, Sergeant (Current Employee), Little Falls, MNApril 26, 2015
Pros: Career advancement, job duties
Cons: Lack of stability
The National Guard has been the best employer I have ever had. The principles which the Guard stands for, the opportunities made available to the soldiers, and the other soldiers I would work with are some of the best people I have ever known. My only real issue with the Guard is the lack of stability in your personal life.
