Pros: some tdy, tight knit training team, influential positive part in people's careers, work on a military installation, base/post privileges
Cons: pay is lower then many on the outside, no room to advance, new training system has taken many duties away
As a Learning Facilitator (LF), I am responsible for overseeing Maxwell AFB and Fort Rucker totaling an combined estimate of 300 managers, supervisors and associates, in regards to training matters. I deal with not only classroom teaching for courses such as How to Conduct OJT, New Hire Orientation and The Exchange Is You (customer service), but also – more... work hand in hand with all directorates. I currently fall under the training section of HR (Human Resources) but I am stationed at Maxwell AFB via HQ (Headquarters). I also proctor ServSafe test for my sites as well as other sites that may need training via VTC (video teleconference). I indulge in minor clerical work, to go along with facility visits, customer service observations, meetings with my associates and management teams. I report to my Learning Manager (LM) who is stationed in Fort Benning, GA.
The thing I love most about the job is the interaction and relationships that I build with my teams in the field. Not many can say they have the opportunity to play some type of positive part in 300 people's careers.
The toughest part of my job is dealing with 300 different attitudes. – less
