  • Joining the guard and full time job

    Hello all, I'm currently looking into the guard. its something ive always wanted to do. I'm 26 years old and have a full time job as a network admin.

    Has anyone left their full time job for basic then came back? I know they must keep my spot for me im just wondering about personal exp and how it went.

    Any pointers would be great.

    Every company is different. I work for one of the good ones. I gave my direct boss a heads up when I was first scheduled to go to MEPS and continued to keep him posted through several weeks of delays. Our division manager is a veteran, and it is a very military friendly organization, so everyone has been very encouraging, even though I could be taking a 2 year leave of absence starting in a little over a month. They even told me to leave all my stuff in my office. I've heard some horror stories though.
