Readers Respond: Do You Have Experience in MOS 94 -- Electronic/Missile Maintenance

94Y

I've been an IFTE soldier for 8 years now, I went to an aviation unit and have done my job for the majority of my enlistment until I became an NCO. From what I can tell there isn't any work for ground side 94Y since alot of the equipment has gone to the wayside, and I have heard that the Kiowa (the only aviation equipment we work on) is soon to be replaced. Maybe this MOS is going to just be dropped unless they move the black box's to some othe equipment. Overall I love the troubleshooting of the vans, but if you arn't in a unit that uses your shops then your most likely going to be on details, such as CSM's driver or work in the orderly room... very unfortunate.

94S

This job is horrible, being stuck to ADA unit is even worse. The NCO's at the school house are the sorriest people you will in counter. I recommend this job to no one, all the people in the job only care about themselves and won't know what to do in a real combat situation because are no combat vets unless they are a re-class from combat arms. Look at the promotion points, the only 94 series MOS were the points are always at min because no one wants to stay in it. The NCO’s follow the regulation to a T because they are sacred and don’t know how to make a decision and don’t care about soldiers, like I said they only care about themselves. The reason for the lack in leadership is that they don’t know how to lead!!!!!

94s

For 94m and 94s both you will spend 6-12 weeks at redstone arsenal, then you will wait for orders for a week to a month depending, then go to Ft. Sill for the remainder of your training. Electronics training is "self-paced" but you have to kind of rush through it. Soon however training for 94 series is moving to [another base] Electronics training is dull just fyi, so if you don't like electronics I suggest you pick a different MOS. Energy drinks will be your friend. 94yankees, hotels, alpha, foxtrot, papa, romeo, kilo, lima, delta, echo, and tangos all follow a different schedule, and cover different subjects.

94E

I have been assigned to a high speed unit that has no idea what my MOS is or how it can help with completing the mission. I have been performing the duties of a 25U and that seems to be what I will be doing for the remainder of my enlistment. I do not expect to be performing the job of 94E anytime soon if ever. Choose a different MOS.

94L pay attention to nco points

I am a 94L. Most every "commo" soldier in my unit is a spc. it is so hard to make nco because points are so high (near perfect)occasionally it will drop but not below 750 since i've been in. talk to your recruiter or retention nco about finding something that still suits you, but you can be promoted for your effort

I've been in 5yrs and have never preformed my job. I done everything from S1 to 88m. Trying to reclass now...

94F

I chose this job thinking that I would be able to actually work on "Special Electronic Devices". For the most part that was true(for AIT). After AIT I reached Fort Bragg where I've done my job ONCE. The only thing we did was troubleshoot a few night vision devices. Other than that, I have been placed in jobs not pertaining to my MOS. If I would have known it would be like this, I would've chosen something different.

dont go 94 y it anit worth it

—Guest robert

94A

I have been in for 3 years now and I can't find anything good about this job. This might be because I am in a light infantry unit and the use of missiles is NEVER. I wanted to obtain a real skill but found that all 94's that are assigned to light infantry units work on anything with a circuit card. I do not recommend this job, simply because you never do it. This might be different if bradley's are around but for my personal opinion, stay away.
