My husband went to take his asvab August 26 2009 and his recruiter is NEW just into the airforce, anyways he is a jack ......... UGH! i dont know what to do about him anyways he decides not to show up at the testing site , because it isnt his working hours, however everyone else recruiter showed up. And.. if your recruiter isnt there you arent allowed to get your scores the night.. well he called his recruiter next morning told him to wait until monday and call him, he calles and he said he has to put in a request for score, and say wait for 5-7 days he does this and CALLS TODAY and the REcruiter said they sent him a e-mail back stating he has to put in yet ANOTHER request, this seems like B.S. what should my husband do? if we keep on like this he will never get into Air Force...What to do? who should he ask to speak to? my husband WILL not SPEAK up!

  • has he already signed, the recruiters are supposed to recruit a certain amount of people per month. each individual recruiter does. so he could simply call him and say, well since its not gonna work through you i'll go talk to the navy, or i'll go see the recruiter at "x" air force recruitment office. that may put the bug up his butt he needs. if that doesn't work, he needs to go in and nicely ask to speak with the officer in charge at that station, he doesn't want to go off like a jerk, b/c if so they may be pissy and note in his file that he was a jerk than boot camp may be a little rougher on him.

  • lol, welcome to the military, hon. no matter the branch, if your hubby decides to join then there will be MULTITUDES of bull like this and people like this recruiter that you have to deal with. The recruiter is a bit lazy and not doing his job well, but to tell you the truth it happens a lot. what I would suggest is that you guys hang in there for request number 2 and then if it still doesn't work ask the recruiter why. if it is the recruiter's fault, go to another recruiter in that office, or the nearest one to you. if it is the processing center, then ask the recruiter to find out where you need to go from here to get your scores that does not involve another of the same kind of request.

  • If he has already met his quota for this month, he may be postponing having him sign all papers and inprocess so he can have your husband as part of his quota for next month.

  • DH said go to the station chief or join the Army lol!!! But, seriously about the station chief. He says that would be the person in charge. Or I agree with the others who say go to the officer in charge. I also agree that this is life in the military... hurry up and wait and they get to it when they are ready... if he is joining the military he has to speak up!
