Rejoining...

Hey you guys! Recently left the mob, Im thinking of rejoining due to the grass not being greener.

I was wondering...

1. Is there is a minimum amount of time to wait before returning?

2. Changing branch, obviously having to do phase 2, but will it affect the increment level you were on?

3. would you have to do the tests at the AFCO or would it be like branch transferring?

4. I was due a bonus would that date have changed, taking away the amount of time I was a civvy for?

Cheers guys.

Yo. Kickin' dude. Thanks for asking.

1. Not unless you were DUDT.

2. Depending how long you served, your rate achieved/how you've been outside, you may have to start afresh & undertake phase one also. (If you've been outside over 5 years, expect the worst). To change branch you will most likely need to re-sit the recruit test for the new branch. Whilst still in training you will most likely be on a lower payscale but hopefully revert to a similar pay increment to that upon which you left - depending on the length of break in service.

3. All re-entry elements will be conducted via your AFCO.

4. You will have to re-qualify for any retention bonus.

You're welcome :)

Not much point in my re-applying then?
