Learn more about joining the Army Reserve.

The job of an Army Reserve recruiter is simple: to find qualified candidates and to provide them with information regarding the military. Recruiters are trained to speak with potential enlistees in a positive tone, without being forceful. In other words, you are not making any commitment just yet. Instead, your meeting is a way for you to gather information so you can make an informed decision in the future.

Above all else, it is the recruiter’s responsibility to answer any questions that you may have. If you have a question that the recruiter cannot answer, you can be rest assured that he/she will find the answer and get back in touch with you as soon as possible.

To ensure that you don’t miss a single question, write down a few things that you want to ask before your meeting. Everybody is different, but here are several questions you should consider asking. If nothing else, they will open up the conversation and allow you to learn more about the Army Reserve.

Why should I join the Army Reserve?

What type of career can I expect if I join?

Will I be stationed close to home?

What does the training process entail?

Can you give me more information on pay and other benefits, including those for my education?

If you ask these five questions, you can expect detailed answers. Each answer is sure to lead to additional questions from both parties.

No matter if you are ready to join the Army Reserve or simply want to learn more, speaking with a recruiter is sure to put you on the right track.
