Working with the Army reserves is a new and interesting experience. I have learned the army structure and combined it with my past military experience as a active Marine. I Currently manage at least 7 soldiers under me. I enjoy learning and teaching new skills to my team mates.

Specialist (Current Employee), Chicago, ILOctober 22, 2013
I am certain that this type of work differs in different locations. It is not an easy job for first timers. However, you will eventually get the hang of it. You have to be willing to work as a team, have competent organization skills, and must have the will to work.

Specialist (Former Employee), Sturtevant, WIOctober 21, 2013
I joined the army to be part of it and to help me financially. I have been a bit disappointed in the misleading things that were told to me before I joined and the amount of difficulty it is to get anything done, but none the less I do not regret my decision. It maintains discipline, and ensues leadership, I do drill 1 weekend a month and what is done – more... that weekend usually varies greatly. – less

Power-Generation Equipment Repairer (Current Employee), Fort Benning, GAOctober 20, 2013
Nothing in the world can beat this job. The benefits are excellent. The pay is great. The hardest part is deploying and leaving your family behind for 9 months at a time

Human Resources Specialist (Current Employee), Aurora, COOctober 15, 2013
Pros: education benefits, self improvements, and public service
Cons: hardships
This is a great way to serve your country and fulfill your civilian aspirations. However, it can place your life on hold at any moment. It can be hard to juggle work, school, family, and military commitments. The benefits make it worth the struggles if you are strong willed and hold yourself up to the Army values.

Heavy Equipment Operator (Current Employee), Fort Benning, GAOctober 9, 2013
Pros: health insurance
Cons: boring
It is miserable. The hours are long. Most of the time there is not anything for us to do. They even expect us to do work on our off time without any compensation. However, the benefits they offer are great.

A place with some opportunities
Counterintelligence Special Agent (Current Employee), Fort Belvoir, VAOctober 8, 2013
Pros: fair amount of training opportunities
Cons: not as many opportunities as there are for officers
The Army reserves (my experience is limited to one unit) is a place with some opportunities but there seems to be many more opportunities for real world missions for the officers and not so much for the enlisted personnel.

Multi- Channel Communications Operator/Maintainer (Current Employee), San Diego, CASeptember 28, 2013
Pros: camaraderie, sense of pride in the work you are doing
Cons: not full time or active.
the people there are great and the environment is good to be in. working together everyday to ensure the mission gets done. we have learned many things from vehicle maintenance to trouble shooting the system networks and equipment. higher management are good people to work under they motivate you to become better and always try your best. the fellow – more... co-workers are a bunch of great people from all walks of life. Making the work place enjoyable because of the many different cultures that come united to work together for the same task. the hardest part about the job is knowing it is not full time so you cannot rely on that for main income. what is most enjoyable is the camaraderie that you get whit the men and women of that unit. – less
