good if you like the military life
UAV Maintainer/ Crew Chief (Current Employee) –  Yakima, WAOctober 17, 2013
If you love doing the military or serve your country and state but have a real career, this is the place for you! But if you don't like the military life or are trying to escape the full time, this isn't your place.

Drills are often intrusive and exhausting. Not a vacation in the least. Mob-up's seem to happen about once a year for disasters and deployments about once every 3 or 4 years.

The people you serve with will be some of your closest friends that you will never regularly see. You can't quit, but you won't want to because of the people, everything else will make you angry.
Pros
free stuff, career training, access to military posts and great benifits
Cons
can't quit, deployments, little promotion oportunity if you do just drills.

Everyone should some type of service for their country
Tactical Automated Fire Control Systems Operator (Former Employee) –  Evansville, INMay 22, 2018
It was an honor and a pleasure. Theres a chance you may get deployed to war zone, but to me, it was the best part of serving. There is hardly any other job that is more fulfilling or respected.
