Featured milSuite Monday Group: The Recruiting Operations Branch

The ARNG-HRR Recruiting Operations Branch Group on milSuite

Why should a recruiter follow the Recruiting Operations Branch Group?

Each state, recruiting center, and recruiter comes across circumstances in their daily interactions that do not align with policy exactly as it is written.  This leads to questions and interpretations that may or may not get answered or interpreted exactly as it was intended.  However, the daily crunch and need for quick answers causes a dilemma when deciding whether you should just go for it and hope you are correct or waiting for a response.  The Recruiting Operations Branch (ROB) can answer your questions through the discussion area of their milSuite Group:

The Recruiting Operations Branch also monitors emails, social media, calls, conversations, and the overall pulse of the force when a new policy is published to see what questions recruiters have or areas of the policy that may need clarified.  They take this information and make small changes that do not meet the requirements of a full rewrite, and post information that answer reoccurring questions that are coming from the field.  The following are examples of information posted in the ROB group the past week:

1. Applicants who apply for enlistment into an MOS that requires a driver’s license must meet certain requirements or may be returned to their State.

2. When requesting a DD Form 368 for Navy applicants, the POC has been updated to 1-800-535-2699.
