Best part time job a person could have.
Acting First Sergeant (Former Employee), Bethlehem, PASeptember 29, 2014
Pros: great place to train, gain experience and develop an effective work ethic
Cons: promotion is difficut in the senior ranks due to limited positions.
Very challenging but rewarding and a sense of pride. Enjoyed my career in the National Guard and the opportunities that presented themselves from time to time. Education was terrific and it was a big plus when seeking employment in the civilian sector. Throughout my career I served side by side with a great group of soldiers and eventually was honored – more... to lead some of these soldiers at the end of my career. Still keep in touch with some of them and attend reunions with them. Hardest part was being gone from the family during deployments. – less

HR Generalist (Current Employee), Saint Augustine, FLSeptember 28, 2014
Pros: learning how to be an effective hr professional and manager
Cons: progression can be slow
A typical day at work was pretty routine where there were some various curve balls due to the nature of our jobs. We are HR professionals, however we work for the state of Florida by supporting Army National Guard soldiers all of the state. I learned about about myself as an HR professional as well as leadership and management. My co-workers and I got – more... along, however there comes a time in our careers where we must seen progression rather than remaining stagnant or comfortable. The hardest part of the job would be wanting to progress and because of a peak, you can't progress. The most enjoyable part of my job is supporting and providing the soldiers that I serve great customer service. The soldiers are why we do what we do. – less
