Hooah
Love working in the Guard. It has helped me pay for my school, let me meet tons of new people around the world, and it has given me the opportunity to do things I never thought imaginable.

The job duties tasks are great but the culture is not the best. The environment is not great and you would make more and have a better work environment at a different federal organization.

Excellent on the job training and quality of life
My time in the National Guard has allowed me to train in multiple areas in ways that the regular workforce would not have general access to. I have been treated well, meeting hundreds of people across multiple states.
Pros
Job Training
Cons
Limited Funding for Longer Training Periods

Alabama National Guard
The Alabama National Guard is a great organization from top to bottom. The soldiers both male and female come from all walks of life and experiences and mold into a force that is capable of hanging with the best of the Active Duty forces. The National Guard taught me to not judge a book by its cover and to realize the potential of myself and those who serve under me.

I enjoyed the task assignments and deadlines imposed by the deployment requirements.
Enjoyed the working environment and the friends I made during my employment.
I was required to learn the complicated military procurement program. Although completely confusing and frustrating at first, I found a comfort zone and became productive in less time than expected.

Management was understanding and eventually found that I was a dependable productive employee.

Learning the computer program was the most difficult part of the job. I was very familiar with the aspects of military procurement.

The most enjoyable part of the job was knowing I had accomplished what I was tasked to do and that my clients could depend on me in the future.
Pros
a very good compensation package
Cons
it was a long drive to and from the office daily.
