The best worst decision you will ever make

It honestly depends on what unit you get and what your job is. I got a great unit, sometimes with great leadership, sometimes with terrible leadership. The Reserves in general is a great choice for those unsure of what they want to do in life or if they are unsure if the military is right for them, and its a great way to get an education in a desired skill or trade (while also getting paid for the training). the bonuses and benefits are pretty decent too. It's also a great way to network because you aren't all just soldiers, etc, but also whatever it is you do outside of the military i.e. a college student, a restaurateur, a delivery driver, a lawyer, etc. Honestly, it can be godawful at times, and the best thing ever at others. It's a little complicated, but the title really sums it up: it will be the best worst decision of your life.
side note: the Reserves does have full-time staff positions, if that is more up your alley
