    Former Employee - US Army Reserve Headquarters in Fort Bragg, NC

    I worked at U.S. Army Reserve full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    The US Army Reserve provides a great opportunity to not only serve your Nation, but also your local community. Jobs are tailored to each individuals skills and the opportunity for growth (both laterally and vertical) are boundless. The environment is self-policing and all employees share a commitment toward achieving the same values. Pros include leadership development, education, and camaraderie.

    Cons

    Due to the nature of the profession and assignment of missions, one significant con for some people may be loss of individual freedom. This often affects work-life balance with family and friends.

    Current Employee - Small Arms & Artillery Repairman in Ogden, UT

    I have been working at U.S. Army Reserve part-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Some of the pros are: working with weapons, firing weapons, traveling, experience different personalities and know how to handle with each of them, can get promoted, benefits, and being a part of something greater.

    Cons

    Some of the cons may be: communication errors, promotions do not always reflect competency and some are being overlooked for promotion, or the politics that is involved

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Communicate effectively with others, so that all will be on the same page.
