started training with the TA fcuking love it, but have a 160 mile round trip to the TA centre plus the Â£80 worth of injections I have to get, how long have anyone had to wait before you've started to get paid ish
its a bit complicated we're going out to albania for a contiuous recruit cadre they said they'd refund us so i'm not to fussed i'm just curious as to how long it had taken for other peoples pay to start comin though
Youâre probably looking at a couple of months before you're first paid.
The delay is a pain in the arrse, but on the plus side your first pay packet will have about 2 or 3 months pay in it â which is nice
Do they not do that during your medical? I had mine all done in one go, as does everyone else when they go for theirs, what a bonus!! Plus, we get top-ups as and when required! (I think you have to have the typhoid boosted if you haven't had one within 6 months - until you complete basic? Then annually after that.)
Your travel to and from MTDs is usually paid in the following paycycle. (i.e. June's MTDs paid in July etc). As for the injections cost, we were debating whether you should actually have to front the money for them!? If you do, the waiting time for reimbursement can be limitless - but usually within two months. (Once you start getting paid that is).
