Not for everyone, or the faint of heart. It can be very tough through your first term of service, but there are many enjoyable moments. They pay for school, pay is not bad, and you get to serve your country!

Infantry (Former Employee), West Chester, PAAugust 29, 2014
The National Guard was the best experience of my career. I learned many valuable skills in the field as well as in the classroom environment. My squad taught me loyalty and leadership and I can now apply that to everyday life. I look up to all of my leaders and have great respect for the Military.

Nice place to work
Configuration Management Librarian (Former Employee), Arlington, VAAugust 29, 2014
Unless you are a contractor.
If you want to advance or stay employed here, you need to either be a Government Civilian or in the military.

As a contractor you are at the mercy of contracts and contract bids and the companies who win them. If they don't think your position is worth keeping it ends.

I loved my work there and all of the people that worked – more... with I had a great team while I was there.

It is very disappointing to think you have a home and may have the chance to stay only to find that once again your job is not important enough to be kept on. – less

91B - Light Wheeled Vehicle Mechanic (Current Employee), San Antonio, TXAugust 28, 2014
Pros: job skill training, benifits, job security.
Cons: enviroment locations vary.
Note:Work days consist of 2 day sessions per month. 2 weeks during mid-summer.

A typical day at work is slow to start but will speed up to involve maintaining desiel equipment rangeing from Humvees to Millitary Recovery Vehicles. Management is superb due to millitary enviroment. My co-workers are engageing during time of rest and work hours. The hardest – more... part of the job is the work load during annual training. The moat enjoyable time during the work days are doing a job skill that I personally enjoy and wish to continue. – less
