Petty Officer 2nd Class (Military Police) (Current Employee), Albuquerque, NMAugust 26, 2013
I have obtained great management skills while serving in the Navy Reserve. My typical day would include assisting with the training of lower ranking sailors as well and providing physical security for military facilities.

I am a part of the Harbor Patrol Unit with the Naval Base in Sasebo, Japan. I enjoy conducting law enforcement in any capacity.

Pros: free lunches, healthcare benefits
Cons: not a full time job
A typical day at work is classroom training and attending ceremonies. Learning was always a top priority and availability to learn was always present. Management was supportive. Co-workers worked as team players to accomplish specific goals. The hardest part of the job was being deployed for extended periods of time. The most enjoyable part of the job – more... was meeting new people and working with co-workers in different environments. – less

Aerographer's Mate Second Class Petty Officer (Current Employee), Orlando, FLJuly 18, 2013

Reservists are trained professionals capable and willing to contribute to ongoing Navy training, planning and operations.

At the same time, You are free to pursue their – more... own interests which means you can serve in the Reserve and have a full-time civilian job. Live and work where you want. Be there for your family. And live the everyday life of your choosing. – less

Good camaraderie among personnel.
Intelligence Analyst-Targeting, NR USSTRATCOM (Current Employee), STRATCOM, Offutt AFB, NEJuly 15, 2013
Pros: sometimes free and reduced cost lunches, time for physical fitness and benefits for a part time position.
Cons: training time, possible callups for deployments, loss of weekend time.
Good pay and benefits for the amount of time on the job. Training and medical and other requirements take a significant amount of time away from learning and doing the job you were hired to do except when completing two week annual tour.

Good part time job
Petty Officer First Class (Former Employee), Pensacola, FLJune 26, 2013
Pros: travel, pay
If you need a good part time job, the reserves are the best. Pay is good, benefits are good for a part-timer. You get full base privileges but you only get medical if you are on duty. It was a fun time and the travel was awesome.
