Wheeled Vehicle Mechanic (Current Employee) – Bedford, VA – May 28, 2017
Mainly maintaining and repairing vehicles broken from prior missions. I learned the ins and outs of all wheeled military vehicles. Self managed in the shop. Hardest part is ordering parts because they're usually on back order. I enjoy putting on the uniform everyday and serving in any way I can.
Benefits and Teamwork
Hard to find a civilian job that recognizes my experience
Reservist (Current Employee) – Mansfield, OH – May 28, 2017
The Reserve life can be quite frustrating at times, because drill weekends will accomplish very little tasks, things that aren't important, and have to travel long distances to the unit under all conditions of weather. Benefits aren't that great, without past active duty time.
Cargo Specialist (88H) (Current Employee) – Statham, GA – May 26, 2017
I have been a soldier now for 4 years and I love the Army Reserves. It gives me the ability to be a soldier as well as a civillian. It allows me the ability to have a separate life outside of the military and to do things included in that.
88H (Cargo Specialist) (Former Employee) – Belleville, IL – May 26, 2017
The reserves was a great place to get career building skills. You are able to continue as a civilian and earn benefits from the military. Reserves were one weekend out of each month and then a two week training period each year.
Senior Human Resource NCO (Former Employee) – Milwaukee, WI – May 26, 2017
A typical day at work is ensuring U.S. Army Reserve members are getting the training that is required for them to be alert, trained and team player. I enjoyed working with members and helping them succeed in their position
INTERNMENT/RESETTLEMENT SPECIALIST (Current Employee) – Elkhorn, NE – May 25, 2017
I am an Army Reservist. It is a great branch of service to be in. You can work your civilian job as well as serve in the military. It only requires one weekend a month, 2 weeks a year, and possible deployments.
Soldier (Former Employee) – Fort Hood – May 23, 2017
The US Army Reserve is a great way to serve your country. I was a UH-60 mechanic working on Blackhawk helicopters. It's not the most fun job in the world, but you will meet people from every walk of life and travel to some of the worst places on earth, but it's fun making new friends.
Combat Engineer (Current Employee) – Camp Pendleton, CA – May 23, 2017
Working in the Army Reserve is a humbling experience. You must be prepared to move in a moments notice. It will test your patience and your commitment to service.While There are many things one could grumble about being in the armed services, the satisfaction and honor of serving outweighs them all.
