Engineering Supervisor (Former Employee), Mooresville, NC – January 16, 2014
Pros: benefits and training
If you are a soldier leaving active duty the National Guard is the way to go. You keep a percentage of your military benifits and maintain training. You only train one weekend a month and two weeks a year if your are not deployed.
Working for the National Guard has been great. I have had many opportunities to gain experience that translate into diverse backgrounds.

Pros: physical fitness is a priority, work with people from different backgrounds, cultures and lifestyles
I really enjoy working for the National Guard. I have been given many opportunities. I have learned how to build a team and work within a team. The hardest part of my day is the commute to work. Once i'm in the building i'm good. I really look forward to getting to work and being with the TEAM.
it is a team buliding experince and a family of a diffrent organization

Combat Engineer (12B) (Current Employee), West Point, VA – October 21, 2014
The experience of serving in the Army National Guard varies greatly depending on what rank you are and several other factors. To this point in my service I have learned to live the seven army values, loyalty, duty, respect, selfless service, honor, integrity, and personal courage. Leadership in each Army unit is different, I hold the utmost confidence – more... in the senior leadership of my unit. – less
88M-Transportation Sergeant (Current Employee), Remington, IN – October 20, 2014
There is no "typical day at work" being in the National Guard. You have to be very diverse, resilient, and strong willed person who can handle change and high stress situations very well. You're co-workers are continuously changing but you learn quickly to trust your life with them. The hardest part of the job is easily the time you spend away from – more... your family, but the pride, skills, and self confidence you take away from it are unexplainable. – less

A Sargent is a supervisor role in the army but in a much higher stress environment. with all – more... this skill i also have several years of experience. – less
68W Health Care Specialist (Current Employee), Eugene, OR – October 20, 2014
Pros: benefits, health, dental, retirement
again there is no typical day in the military. but what I can say is there is always room for advancement and it is encouraged. there are many opportunities in the military if you are willing to go after them. also the support that you receive from other members is unlike most jobs the best way to explain it is you have another family willing to help – more... you anytime that you need it. – less
Recruiting Assistant (Former Employee), Bossier City, LA – October 20, 2014
Love the military very much. Not for everyone though. I have enjoyed many years of learning new skills and attributes in the military. Combat was a blast literally and the best part for me was being able to serve the community in times of need.
