Toxic leadership!
Toxic in every scene of the word. anyone joining the ADF for the money is a moron! the salaries offered are offensive and degrading considering. and the culture isn't much better. Go to Uni, get a degree, or start a business, you will be far better of physically and mentality in the long run! DO NOT WASTE YOUR TIME, LIFE OR YOUTH OR SACRAFICE ANYTHING REMOTELY CLOSE TO YOUR MENTAL HEALTH, PHYSCIAL CAPABILITY OR LIFE AWAY BY WORKING FOR THESE CLOWNS

Loved my 20 yrs. Wish i had never left.
Just do it... best years of my life. Get through rookies and it's easy money. Meet some great people along the way. Friends for life. Choose mustering wisely and know where you can go with that job.

Defence life 👎
Families do not come first, the ads are lying.Depending on posting location will depend whether you have a social life or spend much time with your family.Training establishment postings are toxic environment, do not recommend at all.
