With all the bad press and incidents recently regarding BTQ it may hurt you more than help getting your hours there. Especially if you jumped on board knowing their track record. This is a small industry and it doesn’t seem that BTQ is trending towards a good reputation.

Looks like they lost an exit door in addition to the wheel they lost a few months ago.

Not everyone can join the military, even as a private. Too many criminal records, drug addictions, lack of a high school diploma, and mental issues. Ask a recruiter, about one in three they have to refuse.
