We show up once a month in uniform to drill. There we go over battle drills and plans for natural disasters. They showed me how to followed orders and settled for nothing, but the standards. Some days feel like there never going to end waiting for last formation, then when formation is called to attention you swear the Saints won the super bowl again.

DEPUTY DIRECTOR MARKETING SERVICESt (Former Employee), Washington, DCSeptember 18, 2014
Pros: i had the opportunity to choose where i would travel.
Cons: salaries was not compatible to other non-profit organizations.
My typical day consisted of communicating with the Human Resource Officers (HROs) and members of the National Guard Association from various States as it related to the insurance products that the organization offered. I conducted verbal and face-to-face training to the HROs as needed. Provided assistance to members as it related to their benefits. – more... I identified and implemented new benefits for the members and posted the items on the website for marketing. Each department within the organization worked together as a team to better serve the members, whom were guardsmen from all states. I enjoyed travelling to various states to market the insurance products face-to-face to the members. – less

Food Service/Security Personnel/Human Resources (Former Employee), Concord, NC/S.Baghdad, IraqSeptember 18, 2014
Pros: training, education, benefits
Cons: lengthy tours
There was no typical day at work because the days work could vary regardless of job title, especially overseas. I did indeed receive a lot of hands on training in management. The hardest part of this job is always going to be leaving your family for long periods of time. Outside of leaving my family, I definitely enjoyed everything else.

Overall it has been a good experience and I would change anything if I went back and could do it again. The downside is working long hours, time away from home and the unstability with the budget issues.
