    More a calling than a job.

    Cadet (Current Employee) Somersworth, NH

    I have been working at US National Guard part-time for more than a year


    Pros: - Provides you a skill set that helps foster your own independence. - Gives you experience working with and managing teams of people, from groups… Cons: - Balancing the Soldier/Citizen mindset can be weird at times. - It may be only one weekend a month, two weeks a year (annual training),… Advice to Senior Management: - Stay flexible, and look for ways to cover up gaps in budget and supplies. There's enough experience in your companies/battalions/whatever that just about anything… Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend More
