    Former Employee - Sergeant in Urbana, IL
    Former Employee - Sergeant in Urbana, IL

    I worked at US National Guard as a contractor (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Instills discipline, encourages people to be responsible and orderly, required time is only 1 weekend a month plus a 2 week period per year

    Cons

    Low pay, many different bosses, generally any promotion is just a handout to relieve a superior of some of his/her duties while retaining the same amount of bosses/masters as you previously had.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop treating volunteers like slaves.
