Ergh..... Reserves. been there done that. Air Force reserves is almost impossible to get into as a civilian, it's mostly ex-RAAF members. Army is much easier but they're soooooooo [bleep]ing lazy. It took me 6 months to get my first pay and even then I was still missing half of it. (Also you only get paid per month, if you miss one/they miss one, you have to wait until next month)
I am sorry to hear that actually. It is unfortunate you've had a s***ty experience with the Reserves. I want to join because I believe they don't get enough support in terms of manpower in my opinion. As I assume you've retired from the Reserves, what rank where you discharged as?
discharged as Private, I was only in for a year before my back problems because too much of an issue. Also the lazy part of administration and being gay with in a squad of typical "ghetto gaybashers" was just downright uncomfortable.
Work in 2 hours, doing stocktake of the entire Officeworks store from 1pm to 10pm. Dear. God. Save. Me.
