What is the worst job in the military? info
I feel that a recruiter is the worst job the US Army has to offer. In the last 2 months, I have worked with the recruiters and I have to say their job is pure hell. They are under pressure all the time. Even when they make their quota, they are still treated like dirt. Their job consumes large amounts of time that could be spent with their families. Getting off work after 8pm on a regular basis does not help the family life much. Also, recruiters have to come in to work while they are on leave. I am sorry, but when I am on leave I am not going to be around unless there is a war. I told one recruiter that if he was back at his old unit and was deployed for 1 year during a 3 year period, he'd still see his family more than he does as recruiter working 3 years state side. He agreed with me 100%. I pray that I do not get orders tobe a recruiter.

Cookers, maybe. They are also soldiers, but they are cookers for the true soldiers

I would say those who have to work with the Reserves/National Guard. This handful of professionals has to try and cram a month's worth of training into a weekend, and then spend 2 weeks at Annual Training trying to make the weekend warriors into professionals. Note, I have nothing against the Reserves/Guard people, they have a tough job, balancing civilian and military life, and are increasingly more important in operational planning. I have known many who serve in both the Guard and Reserves, as well as those full time military personnel who are assigned to work with them.
The full timers have to shoulder a large part of the burden, while making sure the Reserves/Guard troops are ready when called up. There is alot of pressure to make sure nothing negative gets reported up the chain of command, because it reflects badly on the full timers, who work long hours and with little support to do a difficult if not impossible job and still manage to keep things together.

\"U.S. Marines are about the most peculiar breed of human beings I have ever known. They treat their service as if it was some kind of cult, plastering their emblem on almost everythng they own, making themselves up to look like insane fanatics...., which I have come to the conclusion they are!\"

They have the worst hours, they heve to work on wekends, they got to wake up earlier that most everybody and get off later than everybody, and they have a never ending duty of endless cleaning and cleaning.
Worst of all for them, is everybody complained about the food they cooked no matter how good it was, this is what made them really feel bad.
