    Re: 92Y Unit Supply Spec. MOS The Good and the Bad

    If you want something that's like your UPS/Amazon job, be a 92Y. As long as you work for it, you will gain a lot of knowledge. You have the ability to rise above E5 and as a 92Y, you have the chance to obtain multiple MOS's. I AM A 92Y. I have been on multiple sides of the roads, meaning I worked at Costco and received promotions based off my OJT in the Army.

    That being said, if I wanted to play Army I would be a 13B for a different way of life one weekend a month.

      Our E4 Supply works hard. First in first out type of deal. It depends on the unit. Ours for sure work the longest hours, even more than HR. Until you learn something you sweep and dump garbage. Like others said, it depends on your leadership if they keep detailing you out or they teach you. Once taught though, they do work very hard and long hours. Then again the ones that do nothing all drill weekend complain about how long it seems they are there, and the others do not. So it isnt always a bad thing. If you are looking for some full time work out of it, Supply is probably the better idea. If it isnt exactly AGR you can usually get some temporary orders off and on within the Supply Section.

        First in last out.

        92Y definitely has a better chance of getting an AGR position at the E5-E6 rank than other MOSs such as 11 series.

            I really appreciate all you guys chiming in. I took my ASVAB last night and did well on it.

            Here is where I stand now, my recruiter has found a spot not far from where I live for 92Y and has told me hes holding onto it for me. I am starting to think I really should go with the 13B. While I think the skills would be nice with the 92Y, my heart tells me to go with the 13b, as I just simply think I would enjoy it more. I've recently in the past couple days thought about how I'd probably like to be doing something different than my day job while on my drill weekends. I'm worried I'd feel like I'm going from warehouse, to drill weekend warehouse which would burn me out.

            I now just feel somewhat bad as the recruiter has told me hes holding that one spot in 92Y. I suppose I need to call him and see if he can find any 13B in this area.

              Trust me, if you want a different scene, go 13B. If you're even contemplating it, do it.

              I didn't have the previous job experiences as you did when I selected 92Y so it was easy and new for me. If you do it all the time, it can get mundane. The weaponry is what brought me in and keeps me in. I went to Armorer school and such just because I am a 92Y.

              I'm now AGR 92Y and if I could reverse this decision to become what I wanted to become...well...I wouldn't but if I ever try to go Active Duty, I'd reclass.

                Your post really helped. I just shot my recruiter an email asking him if there is any openings in my area for 13B. I've watched a bunch of videos on both of these mos's on youtube and what not, and the 13b videos just give me goosebumps. It looks like something I'd really enjoy, more so than the 92Y. I feel like I've lived in warehouses for most of my adult life, and I can see myself not enjoying the 92Y after a certain period of time.

                Thanks to everyone that has posted in this thread. All of your insight has helped me tremendously.

Even though 92Y is relevant to your field of civilian employment, what will it allow you to put on your resume that you can't put on there now? That you attended AIT for a supply MOS? It would be years before you could actually have any notable (from a civilian employer's standpoint) achievements as a 92Y, and depending on your unit's task organization (and considering what Redleg said about full-timers handling supply tasks), you may never really gain any relevant experience from this MOS. Employers will still respect your military service, even if it isn't relevant to what they are hiring for.

                  I work in quantitative finance, hold an engineering degree, and I'm an infantry officer (before that, I was an 88M). Your military and civilian occupations do not need to overlap.

                  Good luck.
                  Thank You Sir, and I think your absolutely right. I'm now wanting the 13B.

                    Re: 92Y Unit Supply Spec. MOS The Good and the Bad

                    Well, let me widen it for you.

                    If you are a 92Y in an Infantry line unit, you will definitely NOT be in a warehouse. You'll most likely be in an armory and depending on your unit, you'd have some AWESOME equipment that you can touch and use.

                    As the Property Book NCO, I got to go to a FAADS fielding. A bunch of components that make up a piece of equipment that is part of a larger and more expensive unit that is only one out of 3 in the state of Virginia. I got to go inside, see how it works, see it run, and learn.

                    In the supply room, I got to mess with the radio sets, 1523F radios (including harris radios). I learned how to load the radio (by myself), fill a radio via AN/CD and such, include the PLUGR and DAGR, and anything the FM says.

                    As the armorer, I got to use the M320 before anyone in the unit got to. I get to check out nods and play with them in the motorpool off duty hours (don't tell anyone...). I make great connections within the supply world, especially within the state. Supply Sergeants are a tight knit group, we know who is legit and who isnt.

                    I learned how the food service system works, ordering MREs, shelf-stable meals, and hot rations to either have them delivered to the armory and be served, or if you have cooks, have them serve it.

                    I ordered clothing and equipment for everyone in my company. If you're in the right unit, you might get first dibs on the state of the art equipment.

                    You can be a supply specialist/sergeant for an Aviation company, Artillery Btry, Infantry Co, Transportation Co, ANY COMPANY!!! If you can find out where your slot is, I can tell you what it might look like.

                      But, 13B is pretty legit.

                        The 92Y spot that my recruiter found is in Richmond, KY. I could be wrong, but I'm thinking it is in a Transportation Co.

                          Tough decision between the two.

                            Mr Loki, I've done a bit of flip flopping between the two but have finally settled on the 92Y.

                              Transportation is pretty involved, I'm sure you'll like it.

                              Have you personally talked to anyone that is 13B?

                                No Sir I have not. I spoke with someone yesterday who was a 92Y and he expressed to me many great opportunities it allows in the civilian field. I'm looking forward to MEPS as I just got my ASVAB scores in(and yes I know MEPS is slow and miserable, just mean my next step).
