    A lot of people have told me that it sucks but to me it seems like a pretty good job. It seems like I'd have lots of free time to take online classes and do homework at work. The pay is good. I can go pretty much anywhere in the country. I understand that it is harder to get good EPRs when you are a recruiter, but I plan on getting out after my enlistment so what does a 4 matter anyway?

    It is a sales job. If you like to sell, you'll like recruiting. Selling/recruiting will bring you face-to-face with a LOT of rejection.

    does anyone know what the normal quotas are? I've heard it varies by what area of the country you are in.

    I liken a recruiter to a used car salesman.......talks up the ride, but beware after you sign the dotted line :mamoru:

    i dont understand how you know you would be a good recruiter. you havent even experienced the military yet. maybe you would hate it and want to get out ASAP and would never want anyone you know to join or whatever. then you wouldnt want to be a recruiter and fuck people. you know what im saying?

    yea you have to be a sra at least to be one so he needs some time though for the most part i wouldnt mind a younger guy telling me stuff because they might be a little more honest.. i know i am when i talk about my service

    though with us removing so many people and not taking to many in how high could the quotas be? i see friends going army and shit because the AF has them on hold and shit

    i would do it, seems like a chill job but idk
    i did recruiters assistance, to much blues for me though i was just a lil e1 helping
    i had to stuff 500 envelopes and address them plus call people and fuck people are rude
    wish i had that job now where im not 18 and fresh into the AF

    i had one lady come see me with a 4 year degree talked to me for about 30 mins and said oh fuck this isnt the army recruiter.. she said she had a appointment and I was the only one there so I was like sure why not.. talked to her saying eventually oh well i thought you wanted enlisted we dont handle officer recruits here

    she looked at the huge fucking AF sign next to her.. that you cant miss oh this isnt army
    im like umm no they are next door. then said why do you want to join the army with a 4 year degree.. silly stay here

    lol.. poor girl

    she said Oh I didnt know the Air force wore camo

    lolers
