Have you ever been assigned to a Military Occupation Specialty (MOS) in MOS 94 -- Electronic/Missile Maintenance? If so, tell us what it was like. Did you love your job? Did you hate it? What was your average day like? Share Your Experiences
- I'll be attending delta school very shortly my orders are date from the 10th of June till the 5 of December. So with that, 94D training should be just a little over 25 weeks rather than the original 38 weeks. They just changed the training requirements recently.

Not worth it for an army career
- 94F isn't a bad mos. just don't expect to make a career in the army. Before you sign the contract check promotion points for that mos. 94F has been maxed out for years! You can literally get stationed anywhere with any mos. there's every mos at every army post. Don't get your hopes up being "promised" a duty station.

- I enlisted in 2007 as a 68A and it's been the best decision I've ever made. I'm 27 years old, just fell into a GS-12 position at the VA last year working on medical imaging and network interfaced equipment and haven't looked back since. Anybody with the opportunity to get into this MOS, I highly recommend it.

- My total training time was 29 weeks and it was in fort lee with most of the other 94 series a,m,h,y,t. I love my job and where I'm at we are a rare breed so promotion is quick, im about to go on deployment as the only p in my platoon,

- Where are 94f usually station?? How about fort Stewart??....and where is the best placed to go

- I spent 4 years as a 94P and I learned the system enough that it taught me everything about most vehicles in the motorpool. I took exams to become a launcher engineer; Hydraulic, Mechanical, and Electrical Engineer. You will be attached with only Field Artillery and you will get the same due respect but only if you know your job. I made mistakes and had to sweep the line a few times but everyone remembers what you do for their launcher.

- This MOS is a 54 week course (11 at fort Lee, 43 at Fort Sill). It is challenging and doesnt open many doors. In fact, the MOS is so low in demand that you may never do your job. Ive been running a comunications shop for 3 years and never had a chance to do my job. -SGT B. 94M20

MOS is alive and kicking
- I have held this MOS for the last 15 years of my carrier and it has opened up multible doors for me. The MOS is not going away. The Army in the next few years will be the sole maintainer of the Javlin and LRAS systems. Any Soldier with this job can easily obtain a job in the electronics maintenance field when they leave the service

- I was a 27B LCSS Test Specialist from 1977 until 1984. I was then hired by Hughes Aircraft Company, now Raytheon, to work on TOW Missiles as a field support engineer. Take your experience and schooling and make your resume for an electronic test technician or engineer. Lots of companies looking for test engineers. I have since worked for Martin Marietta, Lockheed Martin, Sprint and now Ericsson. Took more schools in electronics and programming, some paid for by the companies, and turned it into a great career. I have gotten several patents for the companies, with more in works, and have been a Test Engineer, Network Engineer, Automation Engineer and now a Systems Analyst. Use this MOS as a stepping stone.

- I just got sworn in and my job is the 94f. I have read through the comments, and am looking for some direct input. First, I see that there are different lengths of ait listed. Mine is 17 weeks. Have there been some revisions, that reduced the time? Second, did I pick a good job, or am I going to regret my choice? I am in college for a b.a. In computer science, which is why i chose this job. Third, what advice can you offer, to help gain the most from my experience (beyond the motivation and cross training that have been mentioned.) Thanks to any that respond.

- All I can say is don't get stationed in Alaska. My unit 6-17 CAV had 1 slot that needed to be filled for a 94E, so they sent 12 of us, plus 2 94F. Since then we have not done our jobs at all. We sit in the motor pool all day and take up space. Right now I'm on gate guard duty which is 3 months long and not too bad. But I know once I got back i wont have any work. It all depends on where your stationed. My buddies from AIT went to Korea and they're doin there job plus 25 series jobs. One friend is stationed in Hawaii and is deployed, he's fixed over 200 radios in since he's been there. It luck of the draw. If you do choose this MOS, put in an airborne packet in AIT or have it in your contract. Having that will help you avoid my little paradise. I kick myself everyday for not listening to my sergeant in AIT. My brother was tryin to get me into the 160th SOAR, but they ended up not needing me. By the time i got my PCS orders, it was too late. Alaska is my home for 3 years.
