Default Do reservists/national guardsmen get veteran's preference for government hiring?

I have never been able to get a clear answer on this. Recruiters I've talked to say yes. But Google is telling me no unless you deploy.

A veteran is a veteran no matter what branch of the armed service they where in

You should know better than to listen to recruiters.

Reservists who have only active duty for training do not qualify for the veterans preference.

Quote:
5-Points Veterans Preference Eligibility You are entitled to 5 point veterans preference if your service was:
During a war including December 7, 1941 through July 1, 1955.
For more than 180 consecutive days, other than for training, any part of which occurred after January 31, 1955, and before October 15, 1976.
During the Gulf War from August 2, 1990, through January 2, 1992 (See Note).
In a campaign or expedition for which a campaign medal has been authorized. Any Armed Forces Expeditionary medal or campaign badge, including El Salvador, Lebanon, Grenada, Panama, Somalia, Southwest Asia, Bosnia, Yugoslavia, and Haiti, qualifies for preference (See Note).

Note: A campaign medal holder or Gulf War veteran who originally enlisted after September 7, 1980, (or began active duty on or after October 14, 1982, and has not previously completed 24 months of continuous active duty) must have served continuously for 24 months active duty, (other than active duty for training) or the full period called or ordered to active duty (other than active duty for training). The 24 month service requirement does not apply to 10-point preference eligible veterans separated for disability incurred or aggravated in the line of duty, or to veterans separated for hardship or other reasons under 10 U.S.C. 1171 or 1173.


10-Points Veterans Preference Eligibility You are entitled to 10 point veteran preference if one of the following applies:

10-Point Disability: You are entitled to 10 point veterans' preference if you are a former member of the Armed Forces who was separated under honorable conditions and have a service-connected disability that is 10 percent or less, but the Veterans Administration has not awarded any compensation.

10-Point Compensable: You are entitled to 10 point veterans' preference if you are a former member of the Armed Forces who was separated under honorable conditions and have a service-connected disability that is at least 10 percent, but less than 30 percent, and you are receiving disability compensation from the Veterans Administration.

10-Point/30 Percent Compensable - Veteran: You are entitled to 10 point preference if you have a service connected disability of 30 percent or more.

Basic, AIT, TDY, Annual tours don't count in the same way as Deployments towards veterans benefits....

Yes you do. But other preferences depend on your disability percentage and time in service

It depends on agency. I was given veterans preference with only Basic and AIT. I have since deployed and qualify for VA benefits, however my hiring preference is no different with local agencies as before my deployment.
