Pros: learning a skill that you could be use later.
Cons: maintain to keep fit
I drilled every other weekend. The job that I did was (92A) Material Control and Accounting Specialist. I would log matierials in that were purchased by military personnel and do inventory on a motor vechicles. We did PT, did training exercises, mock exercises, and practice drills.

Cons: to much down time, not enough work to go around. careless behavior
OVERALL THIS JOB WAS FAIRLY CHALLENGING. MOST OF THE TIME THE WEATHER DICTATED HOW MUCH WORK GOT DONE AND WHETHER WE WOULD COMPLETE MISSIONS. THE WHETHER WAS EXTREMELY CHILLY AND WET OR EXTREMELY HOT. TRAVELING AND OPERATING NEW EQUIPMENT WAS THE BEST PART AND THE PEOPLE I WORKED WITH MADE THOSE EXTREMELY HOT DAYS LESS PAINFUL BY TALKING AND NOT FOCUSING – more... ON THE WEATHER CONDITIONS – less

Respiratory Therapist (Current Employee), Cedar Rapids, IA – May 30, 2014
In the army reserves most of our day is planned out. We typically start at first formation where the lay out what is going to happen for the day. From there its typically some sort of mandatory training followed by what they call "Sergeants time" which is the time we take to conduct our sustainment training for our jobs. I have learned that the days – more... can be long however the outcome will always be a successful mission. Management is fair and everyone works together to get the job done. The hardest part of the job is we don't always have the training equipment available. The most enjoyable part is that I am able to continue my respiratory skills while still being a soldier at the same time. – less
