    I have been working at US National Guard full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Become a part of a family of fellow Soldiers, all living and working in the state where you live. Helping your community during times of distress (fires or floods, or civil disturbance), or assisting in community events such as annual festivals, or fairs.

    Cons

    Possibility of mobilizinng for duty over seas, sacrifice a weekend a month, and two weeks for training. May be called out to work in poor weather to help with flood support, away from family.

    Advice to Management

    The nature of the Army is to "go and do". Usually overseas, but any time to provide time with the family or with the social group of choice instead of always conducting field training.


  2. "In the army national guard it gets very interesting and it makes you feel great that you have a certain purpose."

    it is kind of bad that you have to work on weekends but besides that there are not many downfalls it would be better if drill was during like Monday and Tuesday

    the best advice is that no matter what i do it is worth it and no matter how bad something is you have to push through it
