    I have been working at U.S. Army Reserve part-time for more than 20 years

    Pros

    Pay & Benefits, free uniforms, part of a team

    Cons

    Civilian jobs do not want to hire you because you are in the Reserves and will have to miss some work doing training. If you put down you are in the Reserves and are seeking a supervisor job they will most likely not hire you. I’m experiencing that first hand.

    I have been working at U.S. Army Reserve full-time for more than 20 years

    Pros

    The Army Reserve AGR program is the opportunity not only serve and defend the nation, but to ensure the mission readiness and effectiveness of the Army's Reserve Forces. Having the benefits and advantages of being an active duty Soldier, but with the ability to be assigned to more locations and work in more diverse settings.

    Cons

    Sometimes it can be difficult to get needed personnel support from Human Resources Command. It is also common to quickly find yourself responsible for multiple various duty positions, but not really get any official training for them.
