Military Service
Medic (Current Employee) –  Canandaigua, NYOctober 24, 2016
The United States Army Reserve drills once a month with soldiers having additional training throughout the year for days or weeks at a time. In the army i have learned to be an EMT, how to drive and operate heavy equipment, and currently learning how to manage personnel. My fellow soldiers are a mix of motivated and unmotivated people all knowledgeable in their respective positions. The most enjoyable part of the service is the sense of purpose one feels. My least favorite aspect is the long hours that comes with monthly drills and month long training.

One weekend a month
Sergeant, supervisor (Former Employee) –  Columbus, GAOctober 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.
Pros
Extra cash, school benefits
Cons
Low pay, favoritism

What can I say about this. It's the Army, what you give you'll probably get less from it, but serving your country and making sure your guys go home is rewarding.
Pros
Skills, Benefits
Cons
Long work days

Pros
Free lunches

Inconsistent Release times

Advancement is not always on merit
Observer/Controller/Trainer (Current Employee) –  Kansas City, MOOctober 19, 2016
Over the years I have seen a lot of favoritism and discrimination take place unnecessarily. This can really hurt morale. There is also too much focus on physical fitness and not on just meeting the standard.
Pros
Job Security
Cons
Advancement is not always a clear path

Loved and still love the long days that I spend with the troops. Their success is my motivation. The hardest part of the job is when deployment comes around. Its part of it and even though its hard, I love it.

Great Job!
Intelligence Analyst, CENTCOM Detachment (Current Employee) –  United StatesOctober 14, 2016
The Army is what it is. Much like anything else in life, you get out of it what you put in it. If you work hard, you succeed if you don't you fail. Talk to a recruiter.

First Line Supervisor (Former Employee) –  Fort Knox, KYOctober 13, 2016
Always looking to move the right people up the chain of command. I worked with a great group of guy training ROTC cadets in Land Navigation. The hardest part of doing this job is the lack of sleep you have to deal with when doing day and night land navigation.
