you're doing a co-op BMQ from the sounds of it so if you're going to ask how others found it make sure you're talking to someone who's done the same style of BMQ as you're going to be doing.

I applied for reg force infantry in June 2015, I passed the CFAT but I wasnt competitive enough for it so I was denied, however I was given the opportunity of joining reserves infantry, but declined that also because of school and not having a car, now I'm finished school
and finally 18 I would like to give this another go so I called my local reserves unit and set up an interview for next Tuesday, and I'm really excited.
A close family friend of mine is in the military and has been for the past 30 years and he started off as a reservist when he was 18, he recommended that I'd do reserves and then if I like it then transfer to full time, which seems pretty reasonable so I can "test drive" the army and everything.
I discovered this site today and have been reading on CT (I think) transfers from res to reg taking years!
I'm very scared of that because I do want to get my life started ASAP.
I lI've in a rural community with not many jobs and the jobs that are there are high skilled jobs like welding and automotive stuff, and a few fast food places that are taken over by the high schoolers who know someone inside there so getting a job at McDonald's is next to impossible, (I've tried many times, I have even tested a time saying I was 30 with a master degree in psychology and still declined) anyways the point is I have to leave my house and start my life ASAP so will I be wasting my time with the reserves waiting for my transfer or should I just wait it out and see?
Also many of you will be yelling at me saying there is alot of posts explainin this but I have tried looking for recent but most of these posts were made back when I was in kindergarten so I just want a current insight on everything, also right now currently I have noticed that the CF is hiring in almost every trade so should I just join full time and not waste my time with reserves?
