  • AGR 92Y

    Hello, I am young, near enlistment age, and have gotten curious as to the life as a 92y. I work at a grocery store (Fareway) and never thought I would, but I've gained a great interest in supply; palletizing materials, unloading/loading, inventories, operating jacks; that 'stuff'. The thing is, I would only want to do these kind of things for a career in the military. I've looked into AGR positions In the Iowa ARNG positions for Supply, and they appear often. I have few questions.

    1. How hard are 92Y AGR NCO positions to get? I've read they're one of the easiest to obtain
    2. Would it take a long time to reach a high enough rank to even apply for the job if a position is open. For example, I've read if the job is for E-4 - E-7, even someone under that rank can apply. Could this be clarified?
    3. Finally, what would the daily life/work consist of. Hours, and what duties they perform. I've read its different from the AD side, but even the little things, what are the things they would do?

    Thank you.

    1. How hard are 92Y AGR NCO positions to get? I've read they're one of the easiest to obtain
    All AGR positions are extremely competitive. Sometimes as much as 50 or more applicants for one positions.

    2. Would it take a long time to reach a high enough rank to even apply for the job if a position is open. For example, I've read if the job is for E-4 - E-7, even someone under that rank can apply. Could this be clarified?
    If you joined today you would most likely need alternate employment at a minimum for 2-3 years before you could even apply.

    3. Finally, what would the daily life/work consist of. Hours, and what duties they perform. I've read its different from the AD side, but even the little things, what are the things they would do? Roughly 9-5, working in the supply room.

      Do a search for "TreyAR" and you'll see that this guy has been posting premature questions of this sort for a long time (although apparently his aspirations have gone from being a sniper/ninja/superhero to being a supply specialist).

          Yaa.. Sorry about that. I believe those were posted when I was around 13-14. Just trying what I want to do for the rest of my life, and figure it out. My ninja special forces sniper things are out of my head. But.. What would day to day operations/work consist of?

            So now you're what...all of 15?

            Stay in school, do your homework, go to college (and don't major in something stupid, like art history or criminal justice). You shouldn't be looking for a full time job until you've accomplished the foregoing.

              Roooger that. I was just considering future options andb careers. I was under the impression that late highschool is a good time to do just that. Thank you, though. Although I do plan to possibly get a degree in criminal justice Time and input is appreciated.

                We can debate the merits of anything...except getting a degree in criminal justice. That is completely inexcusable.

                  Well with all due respect, it worked out for my father, and has launched his career, so I would disagree. But im not here to start a pissing match, just here to entertain you all with my everchanging premature posts

                    Something working out for someone, and something being a good idea are two different things. Somewhere there is probably someone who won millions from the lottery by buying 5000 dollars in tickets. It worked for him, but you should save your 5 grand. Criminal Justice is one of the worst majors you could possibly select. It is practically a complete waste of 50 grand in tuition and time. There really isnt one justifiable reason someone could have to major in that field.

                      I agree with SSG 100% on this. For every anecdote I hear about someone succeeding with a CJ degree, I can give you 10 personal examples of people who are struggling.

                      I am one of the few of my peers with a PoliSci/CJ undergrad degree that has had it work out. And this is mainly because of technical skills/a security clearance I gained outside my degree. Many of my peers, unable to get a job out of college, went on to second- and third-tier law schools and now can't find law jobs. Others didn't learn their lesson, got an MA in political science/art history/etc and are now working behind the front desk at a hotel, bartending, or just generally hating life. I'm strongly of the opinion that these degrees don't get you anywhere an engineering, science, etc. degree won't.

                      I wish someone had smacked some sense into me before I chose to get a liberal arts degree. The economy has changed a lot since I went to college, and A LOT since your father did. Feel free to ignore the advice your hearing, but there's a high probability you'll regret it down the line.

                          Sounds like you're on the right track. Most of my peers just expected to be able to walk into the State Department, law enforcement, etc. As long as you play it right, of course you can be successful.

                          All I'm trying to do is temper expectations and encourage people to consider the financial /employment prospects when choosing what to study.

                            It also doesn't help when some for-profit schools have commercials implying a CJ degree will land them in CSI, a swat team or on the President's Secret Service detail.

                              TreyAR, keep in mind the majority of those who post in these threads have never worked or will work in law enforcement. You want actual experience with this degree or applying to LE jobs, go to a forum that deals soley with LE positions.
