A job that offers many opportunities
Sergeant/12C - Bridge Builder (Former Employee), Macon, MOMarch 3, 2015
In the National Guard you work one weekend per month and two weeks in the summer. I've learned management skills and self-confidence in the National Guard. Management is excellent. The hardest part of the job is knowing that you could possibly be deployed and be away from your loved ones. The most enjoyable part of the job was being able to see places and different cultures I would of never seen if I were not in the guard.

PA Army National Guard
Stryker Vehicle Commander (Current Employee), Sergeant, PAMarch 2, 2015
Pros: educational benefits, health insurance etc.
Cons: the hours are incredibly fluid and dictated by situational needs
The typical workday includes a variety of physical tasks, administrative duties, training, and classes.
Management as expected is firm and more often than not fair
The military is a mash up of different people from across the country requiring you to work with multiple personalities
The job itself can be incredibly difficult or incredibly easy depending upon the needs handed down by Military Officers
The variety of experience, locale, and people is the most enjoyable part of this job

electronic detection system repair (Current Employee), Austin, TXMarch 2, 2015
The National Guard can be great, but it can also be awful at times. You will run into those NCOs the think the are gods gift to earth and no matter what you do is wrong. However it has been a great experience and when you find the right sergeants you will have a great time and they will help you excel in all you do.

92W Water Treatment Specialist (Current Employee), Fort Lee, VAMarch 2, 2015
A typical day in the National Guard is all about understanding your part. Everyone plays their role and do their jobs for a bigger task.You could easily find your self learning other trades. One day you may be a mechanic the next you may be a cook. All depends on where you are needed so my job goes beyond the purification of turbid water.
