Navy Reserves Jobs that promote?

i was wondering if any members of the navy or navy reserve could tell me if any of the following jobs promote faster than others? Also, which ones provide great training and do you feel are better jobs overall? I am a police officer hoping to join the navy reserves and am interested in the following jobs.

If you have any experience in any of them, please let me know your review.

Aviation Ordnanceman

Sonar Technician

Aircrew Survival Equiptmentman




Equipment Operator

Aviation aerographer's Mate

Master at Arms

    only Crypto will really give you skills that translate to civilian life. The rest, not so much. Reserves always promote faster than AD, CREO LISTINGS FOR E-4 as of JAN 2012:

    1= undermanned 2= manned adequately 3= over manned

    Aviation Ordnanceman 2

    Sonar Technician (STG=3, STS=1)

    Aircrew Survival Equiptmentman 2

    Mineman 3

    Cryptology all CT's are CREO 1

    Builder 2

    Equipment Operator 1

    Aviation aerographer's Mate 2

    Master at Arms 2

    Culinary 2

    according to this, EO's and CT's will promote fastest.

    Navy Promotions to E-4 through E-6 are based on multiple choice tests, half on your job, half on general navy knowledge. That, and availability. There has to be a spot for you to promote into. Taking a job no one else wants help you promote. In an undermanned or normally manned rate, it's not very difficult to reach E-5 in the first 4 years. Then again in an overmanned rate, it's impossible.
