    Hey I was wondering if yous can help me out.

    If all goes well I should be signing my contract next week. Go to basic a month or two from now.... and then AIT.

    What I was wondering is when I come back... and need a better job than the one Im at now ... But there are no AGR / SAD jobs available... Can I go to my unit and go active duty in the NG.

    Active Duty Guard WOULD BE those AGR / ADSW (has a new name I forget) type jobs.

    There's almost always a need for a recruiter or supply flunky somewhere.

      So basically I can get a job in the New York Army National Guard... when I come back... just wondering because between me and my wife were having serious problems with making ends meet. And since gas, food, tolls, etc. are all going up ... I need something to make sure I can provide for my wife.

        There is nothing guaranteed. You have to look up positions and apply for them, provide all the necessary paperwork, meet rank requirements and agree to be MOSQed with some.

        Other full timers here can tell you how easy/hard the process is. Just don't think the guard is obligated to do more than provide you a pay check for drills/AT.

        My state has openings for RSP personnel. Basically being a flunky that collects "warriors" and hunts down AWOLs and whatever filing/data entry needs to be done. NO THANKS!

          Just simply ask if there is any work to be had. But as mentioned, it is not guarnteed and can be hard to get. Make a impression on your COC, dont just be the guy that shows up for drill and fades to the back and nobody knows you, but at the sametime, dont be a spotlight either. It can be something that you did without having to be told, something simple like taking out the trash in the drill hall, make a good impression. Ask your Squad Leader, Section Sargent, Platoon Leader, whoever is in your first level chain of command if you can help them with something. Alot of the time on Drill Weekends they have their hands full and welcome the help. Most of the time working full time with the Guard on orders takes time, it doesnt happen the day you report in after AIT. But let them know your interested. Good Luck

            There are ADSO/AGR/SAD jobs posted on the state site, keep in mind if you take an AGR job you will be paying back a portion to all of you enlistment bonus. While we really go out of the way to help a soldier, we are not an employment office, we do not put soldiers on the books just because they want a better job.

              Agr

              Are there AGR for officers or warrant officers. Also, what's the difference between AGR and a Technician position?

                Technicians are federal employees persay, that work jobs like materials handlers, mechanics or computer technicians. You get paid on a GS pay scale as opposed to your rank. You wear the uniform, but I am told its more relaxed so you aren't doing formations or anything. You also HAVE to be in a drilling status to be eligible and to hold that position.

                AGR. I believe you sign a contract for 1 to 3 years and are basically a full time guardsmen...usually doing administrative work/supply/recruiting, but there are training-type positions also I think. There is an issue regarding your enlistment bonus with AGR though I believe.

                And yes, there are ADSW/ADOS and AGR for officers. Warrants would be way harder to find, since they are a small breed as it is.

                  As a technician or an AGR soldier you could work in just about any area you want to. Technicians are usually at the state level command staff (G-staff or J staff). AGR slots go down to the unit level. Some specialty units (RTI/MEDCOM) have Techs too.

                  In most states Fed Techs are required to be NG members, and therefore wear their uniforms, are addressed by rank, etc.

                  Most fulltime employees come to work like it is a regular job, no formations etc. Check out your state's HRO website for details on jobs available now.

                    Here's an example of technician positions for my state. They had twice as much last week, but closed a lot. Your payscale is also by the hour I noticed.

                    Human Resources Assistant, Information Technology Specialist, Supply Technician, Electronics Mechanic

                      ADSW/ADOS what is that? I have tried for AGR in my state and my state next door. No luck. Most folks I know who got the job know someone. Most of the jobs posted on my state website are for certain mos. Yet my UA is a 68w and his AGR slot is mostly doing paperwork. If you think you will just get agr or tech job GOOD LUCK. With my unit there are always extra missions and hours just ask around. I am starting 90 day orders myself. I just hope it can lead to AGR.

                        90 day orders = ADSW normally. The time frame can vary, but thats likely an ADSW order.
