92A - female?
 Login/Join
 

posted
Hi All,
My MOS is 92A. I am very small and skinny so that I don't know if this 92A is suitable for female. Also, I want to choose Germany as my permanent duty station, do you think I can get it? (I understand all depends on the needs of the government.) Thanks so much.

I want to add few lines to my question. I had read the Army Job Description and Qualifications for 92A, since I am E 4, I don't know which skill level I will get for 92A. Thanks for your help.

92A - Automated Logistical Specialist = [b:d563fe141a]Supply[/b:d563fe141a]

As long as you meet the Army standards for height/weight...you will be able to do this job.

As far as skill levels...each skill level corresponds with a rank:

E1-E4 - Skill level 1 (10 level)
E-5 - Skill level 2 (20 level)
E-6 - Skill level 3 (30 level)
etc....etc....

As a 92A SGT, I can tell you that very little of our MOS is physical. Of course, this is also dependant on what type of unit you get into. A warehouse unit will have you lifting equipment and carrying it around, shipping and receiving parts, putting them in boxes and shelves, etc

a motor pool will have you lifting starters, generators, batteries, tires, basic mechanical parts

as for Germany, if you plan on staying in and have not reenlisted yet, then tell your reenlistment NCO you want to reenlist for Germany. You should have no problems getting it then.

you will always have other people around you to help. You should have no problem being a 92A

Hi All and Bradmeister,

They said I will be Specialist E4 if I finish my degree before shipping, so as a E 4 Specialist, my job for 92A is the same as E4 SGT?

As for Germany, you said: "If you plan on staying in and have not reenlisted yet, then tell your reenlistment NCO you want to reenlist for Germany. You should have no problems getting it then."

The "reenlisted" as you said, means that when they assign me a permanent duty station toward the end of AIT, I should tell NCO about Germany. Is it correct?

As from the Press, the Army bases in Germany will withdraw from Germany starting 2006, so that I wonder if I can get the Germany as my permanent duty station? Also, I need the advice on which Army base in Germany to write on my dream sheet for assignment.

Thanks so much.

E-4 is the building block of being a E-5 SGT. E-4 is where you starting picking up more leadership skills and start to get put in charge of troops. Re-enlistment is when you start to reach the end of your original contract and you talk to a re-enlistment NCO about your options to extend your contract. For germany you should talk to your recruiter or the career counselor at your MEPS. Not sure if once you ship for basic you will be able to get it still.

my bad there, thought you were already in.. that's why I mentioned reenlistment.

like sergeant_commo said, talk to your recruiter about getting assigned to Germany. As to which post, that will be up to DA unless you know someone at that post, sometimes they can help get you there.

Sergeant (SGT) is E5, the next step for an E4. Hopefully you are a fast learner, because you will be given more responsibility right off the bat because you'll be an E4. It's not a difficult job, but it is more mental than physical. You'll be dealing with people who have no clue what they are talking about, but will still claim they know your job better than you.

Hi All,

I am sorry I have had so many questions. But I am so curious how my army life will be as a 92 A.
I would like to know the average day for 92A? is it like 9am - 5pm like other regular works? When I get to my permanent duty station, what time will I need to wake up? to go to bed every night? Do I have to do pt at my permanent duty station? Thanks so much for your info.

Big Grin - Don't worry about all the questions...that's what this site is for.

As far as the PT at your Permanent Duty Station....yes....you will do PT at least 4 days out of the week, usually around 6 am. PT usually lasts for about 1 - 1.5 hours.

You won't have an assigned bed time or "light's out" ... you go to sleep whenever you want to. During Basic and AIT, you will have a "light's out" but I don't remember what times those were.

As far as the average day...I'll leave that one for Bradmeister. Smiler

This question is a little difficult, because there are different types of units a 92A can go to ... but for most units yes, the work day is 9 am to 5 pm ... give or take an hour or so

[quote:cd03e22970]When I get to my permanent duty station, what time will I need to wake up? to go to bed every night? [/quote:cd03e22970]
Once you get to your permanent duty station, it will be up to you to get to formation on time. Depending on where you are, that will be anywhere from 5 am to 6:30am.

[quote:cd03e22970]Do I have to do pt at my permanent duty station? [/quote:cd03e22970]
Yes. This is pretty much a point blank question.

[quote:cd03e22970]Thanks so much for your info.[/quote:cd03e22970]
anytime ... and if you have anymore questions, feel free to ask

Thanks so much for your information. It means a lot to me.
So, as a 92A, will I work 8, 10, or 12 hours a day? And will I get Saturdays and Sundays off? Thanks.

my daily schedule looks like this:

06:00 - 07:00 PT
07:00 - 09:00 personal hygiene, eat, get ready for work
09:00 - 11:30 work
11:30 - 13:00 lunch
13:00 - 17:00 work
off till next day, Saturday and Sunday off

keep in mind that different units may have different time schedules, but this is the *basic* schedule I've had in my 10 years of service. Also, depending on field exercises, special details, missions etc you may have to work on the weekends or past 17:00.

I am small and skinny (5'6", 110lbs) 92A female that was stationed in Germany, as my 1st duty station.

My first unit was under the 1st Infantry Division, I was with the 201st FSB in Vilseck, Germany.


As a 92A stationed right next to Grafenwohr, we worked our tails off. I worked in a warehouse and we worked 0900-1145 M-F and 0700-1900 Saturdays and Sunday was off. That is how it was for the 1st few months, then we got deployed to Bosnia and worked 16 hour shifts (8 hours on, 8 hours off, 8 hours on, and so on) per 24 hour period. When we came back from Bosnia we worked 0900-2030 sometimes we got off around 1900 and sometimes later. We had most of our weekends back and a 3 day weekend was rare, a 4 day was non existant for us. Moral was very, very low, but it made me a stronger person and the difficult experiances in life, I find, are rewarding in the end.

That's how it was for me for two years. It was tough.

Then I went to my next duty station in Kansas and it was so much less work. Then I had a normal 0900-1700 shift. It was great. I was shop office clerk and you can't beat that.

I found that being a 92A, working in a warehouse is the worst. I didn't like it much, but that's just me. I had a bad experience with it.
