I'm currently going through the process of joining the RNR and I just feel like having a bit of a moan right now over how much of a pain it's turning into. In March of this year I came the end of six years in the mob and before going on terminal leave I was at sea in a pussers gray for a few weeks. So why in God's name am I having to sit the joining test, go to a formal interview and have an eye test. And, to do all this I'm having to take time off from my new job to go to the AFCO. A job I've only been in for half a dog watch. A girl I was on resettlement with from the Royal Sigs practicaly walked in to the TA with none of this hassle. If I'm going to join the RNR, something which operates mostly at weekends and evenings then why can't all this be handled in those hours??
