Specialist in Carpentry/ Masonry (Former Employee) – Mankato, MN – May 11, 2016
Overall, i miss the people that I was around. The typical day consisted of doing vehicle maintenance, making sure all equipment and physical training was on par. I learned more than the average person could learn in 18 years from their parents; discipline, management, order and values. My co-workers were great and got along with all of them, which was one of the most enjoyable parts of it aside learning how to construct many different structures.if i had to pick the hardest part of the job was not knowing what was in your future.

As a fueler, your unit with have it's specialty. In ours which is bulk distribution through pipeline it can be laborious. Through hardwork you begin to see the bigger picture and what this experience can take you. Also the typical solider duties and benefits are also a huge plus. You got to stay in shape and keep and squared away. Other than that you'll have no problems.

It's neither the best nor the worst job I've ever had. The Reserve, however, is by far the most valuable professional thing I've ever been a part of, and looks to be the largest and most valuable piece of my eventual retirement.

Sergeant, supervisor (Former Employee) – Columbus, GA – October 24, 2016
The US Army Reserve can provide individuals with the skills needed to become a better soldier. Sadly, many of the young people first entering think it is just something to do because it will pay for school. Many do not show up, but still expect to get the monthly pay. The hardest thing is accepting that this is not the "full time" military.
