Recruiter Recall Program



The Recruiter Recall Program is a temporary recall program for Navy Reservists, including the IRR, to accept active duty orders as a production recruiter to execute the Navy recruiting mission at one of DOZENS of duty stations across the United States.

In addition to the typical full pay and benefits of active duty orders (e.g., 30-days of paid leave per year, USERRA protection to keep your civilian job, comprehensive medical and dental benefits for you and your family, etc), enlisted personnel are also eligible to receive Special Duty Assignment Pay (SDAP), once NEC 803R is issued!  

These positions will be spread throughout the U.S., so you may be able to perform this job from your current residence or be selected for a limited number of full PCS-move entitlements that are available for you and your family (to include a paid move back to your place of residence when your orders are complete).

- Eligible for Special Duty Assignment Pay (enlisted personnel, once NEC 803R is issued)
- Active duty pay, housing allowance, yearly uniform allowance, etc
- Comprehensive medical and dental benefits for your whole family
- Full tuition assistance
- Paid Federal and National holidays
- 30 days of paid leave per year
- Increased advancement potential
- Civilian job retained under the Uniformed Service Employment and Reemployments Rights Act of 1994 (USERRA)
- Independent duty in a highly competitive environment
What’s the catch?  Potentially long hours, a stressful, demanding job, and working largely unsupervised to help build our Navy stronger, one recruit at a time.  For the first time in a generation, our Navy is upsizing.  In order to obtain the required end strength, we need the help of seasoned veterans like you to scour the land, finding and hiring the highest quality men and women available!
*For more information regarding the Recruiter Recall Program, please email
Interested personnel can find current definite recall opportunities on the Navy Reserve Homeport Operational Support Zip Serve Portal at
To find the advertisements, members should change the "Duration of Orders Max (days)" from 365 to 1096 and change the "Order Type" to "Definite Recall".

Officers and Enlisted personnel interested in the Recruiter Recall will need to begin the application process by sending an email PERS-92 at expressing your interest.  You will be sent Recall Eligibility Pre-screen form to complete and return to PERS-92.  If eligible for recall, you will be sent the Application Form. If ineligible for recall, you will be sent an email indicating why you were deemed ineligible.
Members that are eligible to apply will submit the Application Form, as well as any additional documentation as specified in the advertisement (if applicable), for the program for which they are applying.
-What is the difference between the CANREC program and the MPN Recruiter Recall?
The programs can be differentiated by the below information.
-Recall is Reserve Personnel Navy (RPN) funded
-Initial 2 year orders with possibility of extensions up to 5 years total.
MPN Recruiter Recall:
-Recall is Military Personnel Navy (MPN) funded
-Initial recall is 2 or 3 years. If initial recall is for 2 years, then possibility of extension for 3rd year. Orders are restricted in duration by 10 USC 1,095 rule.
Things that remain the same are:
-Receive full active duty benefits.
-USERRA protection.
-SDAP pay when recruiter NEC is obtained
-Possibility for CRF conversion.


-My prescreen says I am ineligible to apply. What do I need to do?
The reason you are ineligible will be notated on the prescreen when it is returned to you. To correct the discrepancy, contact your NOSC and advise them of what needs to be corrected.
-How do I know if my package is missing anything?
PERS-92 will email you directly if there is anything missing from your package; however please ensure you fully read the Billet Advertisement and submit a completed package the first time to maximize the chances of selection. Some commands will make their selections prior to the close of the advertisement, so the earlier that a completed application is submitted, the better. If the missing documentation is not submitted by the time the commands are making selections, incomplete packages will not be considered.
-How will I know if I have or have not been selected for a billet?
Once selections have been made, either the command or PERS-92 will contact all applicants and advise them of their selection status.
-Once I am selected for a billet how long does the process take before I get my orders?
Depending on the billet start date, it could take anywhere from 2 to 4 weeks for the orders to be processed.
-How do I receive my orders?
PERS-92 will email you your orders as well as send them in message traffic.
