Awful Experience
Detailed Recruiter (Former Employee), Olean, NYApril 17, 2013
Cons: everything
Worst three years of my life. Recruiting is not for everyone, myself included. Unsuccessful recruiters were forced to work many additional hours in addition to the 60-70 hours per week that were mandatory. Punishments included 6am training sessions in class A uniform at Battalion headquarters which was three hours away. There was no time for family, – more... the tempo never let up, the leadership was ruthless. – less

Pros: the reward of knowing you're taking care of soldiers and their families

Typical day was nonstop, continuous hard work. I like the fast pace as it helps make the day go by. Loved the reward of taking care of Soldiers.

Day to Day in the life of a Civilian working for Recruiting Command
Human Resources Technician (Former Employee), Nashville, TNSeptember 24, 2012
Pros: flexability with outside appointments
Cons: short lunch breaks
A typical work day consists of reviewing Soldier evaluations for accuracy according to Army Regulations, sending them forward to higher command, and submitting them in a timely manner for processing. Everyday i would review awards for Soldiers who may be leaving to a new assignment or achieved a great action as well as processing personal actions that – more... may flag, reassign, promote, and pay a soldier accordingly. The hardest part about the job was communicating with the required people who may be out of state; when they are not always available to assist. The most enjoyable part of the job was helping Soldiers. – less
