    I have been working at Air Force Reserve full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    To be a part of something larger than just my career is rewarding. I became a navigator in my late twenties and after doing that for a few years I got my pilot wings. Each step is a personal achievement to be proud of but also to be relied upon to complete a mission for your unit is rewarding. And it's not just aircrew, every piece of the puzzle matters. Great benefits, you just have to know where to look for them. I transferred my education benefits to my child and she will have zero college tuition to worry about and most living expenses paid for as well.

    Cons

    It's not a fast process to get picked up for a flying position, you must be patient. (Possibly years) Nothing on a .mil computer is fast, somedays it is painful beyond words just to open email. Balancing career development with a civilian job is tough and not all employers understand the amount of time you will need to be away especially aircrew, we don't just fly one weekend a month and two weeks a year.

    Pros

    You get great benefits in the Reserves. Cheap dental, retirement plan, school, etc

    Cons

    You have to push for what you want. If you want to do something, you have to constantly be on someone about it. If you just sit back and do nothing then you'll get nothing in return.

    I have been working at Air Force Reserve part-time

    Pros

    You get to pretend to be in the military a few days out of the year. Great benefits like health and dental

    Everything happens slow. Many incompetent people, civilians and reservists alike. Pay is always messed up.
