It's long hours, you'll be expected to put 110% in & probably a bit of a culture shock to you! However the banter will be awesome, you'll have a laugh & you get 3 square meals a day . . . Free of charge, in fact they're paying you!!!
Just turn up with the right attitude, e.g. One of wanting to learn, that you don't know everything & not of a delicate princess who can't take a joke & do as you're told then you'll be fine. . .
I see your point, but as my unit have been slow on booking me on the basic training stuff there just arent enough weekends between now and september to get the extra phase 2 stuff done. Plus I dont have enough holiday from work either.
