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.

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.

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.

An easy pay check. You show up to the weekend drill, do your job for the whole weekend (usually 8am to 5pm each day). Most weekend drills we have scheduled classes, so you may not even get a chance to do your job for one day or both. The pay is ok, the benefits are better.
Military retirements, college funds, paid tuition, bonuses, advancement
1 weekend a month, 2 weeks a year, no medical/dental

The Army Reserve has given me the opportunity to serve my country while also working on my civilian career. I've found myself under great leadership while also receiving training that translates into a civilian career field.

Command climate incredibly dependent on where you are stationed. Currently serving under one so toxic the EPA should investigate. Performance punishment seems to be Army wide so if you get really good and proficient at your job, you will be rewarded with the additional work load of the jerk who never does his. Congrats!
Medical Instructor & Writer (Current Employee) – Milwaukee, WI – May 21, 2017
The Army Reserves provided many opportunities for professional development. I have attended courses in advanced leadership, facilitating instruction, and have been able to maintain up-to-date EMT-B & BLS certifications.
Postal Supervisor (Former Employee) – Tallahassee, FL – May 21, 2017
Great opportunity to serve your country and community. Management was well received and supportive. Great working environment. The most enjoyable part of this job was serving my county. The hardest part was being separated from my family during deployments.
92G Food Service Specialist (Current Employee) – Salinas, PR – May 21, 2017
A typical day at work for a 92G in the US ARMY RESERVE is always busy and filled with hard work and preforming above average under great pressure and stress. Of my two and a half years in the Reserve I've gained an immense amount of knowledge in more than just my job as a soldier, but in all types of work environments. There are points where management almost never came through to help us lower ranks and that goes together with the hardest part of the job along with the low pay and benefits.
In a typical day at work we learn a lot, It gives you opportunities to improve. Good lunch ours and excellent team mates. The hardest part of my job is to work out on the sun but it does not bother me.
