I want to sign for reserves but have alot of q's. I am waiting for a recruiting officer to call me back. What is the rank and payscale for new recruits? What type of health care is available for my family? What jobs are they assigned to? Are there jobs that the trainig can continue on after servide into a career later? I have a little debt, not much, can that prevent me from being accepted? its under 2k. After the 6 week bootcamp how many days a month do we work? In reserves are we kept int the same central area that we live?
E1 or E3 depending on your background. Do a google search for military pay chart and you will see the scale.
You can elect to have health care coverage for you and your family. The family plan has a cost associated with it. Your recruiter will have the cost or you can google it.
Many skills you learn in the Reserves can transfer into the civilian world.
A little debt will not hurt you depending on what your monthly payments are.
you will work two days a month and two weeks a year.
You usually stay in your local area.
