    Hello,
    Has anyone left a good career job to join the coast guard and is there a possibility of setting an agreement with your employer that you’ll return after your enlistment is completed.

    I left a great job for the Coast Guard. I'm not sure you can guarantee they hold your job for 4-5 years. That is a discussion you will have with them. You will also gain some new skills in the CG and may want to go that route when you get out.

    The only time an employer is required to hold your job if you go on active duty is if you're a Reservist and get recalled. If you've a civilian career you like, why leave? You could always join the CG Reserve and get the best of both worlds

    How would the 2 months of boot camp fall into play. Is that the same rules as being called to active duty.

    Yes, your employer would need to hold your job while you are in boot camp for reserves.

    The Uniformed Services Employment/Reemployment Rights Act (USERRA) provides for many protections for those Reservists recalled to active duty

    Yes I did this and yes you can have a job held for you. The USERRA is not limited to just Reservists. It covers all duty up to a 5 year span. Notify your employer that you'll be taking an absence to serve and that you'd like to retain your right to return as described in the USERRA.

    I didn't actually "quit" my employer until several years after becoming active duty. The only reason I did finally quit was because I wanted to roll my 401k and they wouldn't let me because technically I never left.
