Intelligence Technician (Current Employee), Northern California – June 25, 2015
Working in the Air Force is a great way to serve your country and learn some valuable skills. I would recommend that people have a back up plan...You may love the Air Force, but the Air Force might not love you.
Geospatial Analyst/Data Link Program Manager (Current Employee), Langley AFB, VA – June 4, 2015
Pros: Benefits, experience
The USAFR is very similar to working active duty Air Force but with a little more flexibility for the individual. Job satisfaction is high, as with active duty knowing that you are serving your country.
Financial Management Officer (Former Employee), Travis AFB, CA – May 26, 2015
Pros: Meet a lot of people
Cons: Workers change often
Very busy work environment with customers needing information from various areas within the offices of financial management. Coworkers are professional and carry out their duties well. Having to switch gears constantly is difficult yet rewarding at the same time. Learning and working with different people and new people constantly is a unique part of the job. Also working in an environment with people you get along with makes the job easy to manage.
Electrical Engineer (Current Employee), Youngstown, OH – May 21, 2015
I have had many duties in the military i have done much plumbing and electrical. I enjoyed it very much and i loved it. I wish to find a company with the same family feeling as i experienced in the military.
The Air Force Reserves was a great experience for anyone wishing to learn a few things before entering college or while attending college. I have gained a great number of leadership skills through by working with my coworkers or accomplishing tasks of maintaining the aircraft such as replacing parts or fixing those parts. The weekends were great if you lived nearby but the hardest part was when you had to take a flight to your job site. I loved the air force and I hope to re-enlist soon.
Aerospace Maintenance Technician (Current Employee), Barksdale AFB, LA – May 17, 2015
Cons: Overworked sometimes
This is a great opportunity to travel and do things you wouldn't typically do in the civilian world. You make great friends and memories while serving your country. Best part of the job is being apart of the mission and ensuring the aircraft are prepared for a successful flight.
The Air Force Reserve is a wonderful place to work. The people care about you and your well being. The most enjoyable part of my job is knowing I'm being able to serve the country while also living a regular civilian life.
Aircraft Electrical and Environmental Systems Tech (Current Employee), Patrick Afb, FL – April 16, 2015
Pros: Good benefits, keeps you busy, great people
Cons: Needs more man power
The Air Force Reserve is a great employer. Aircraft Maintenance is a very busy career field in the Reserves, but is well worth it. Superiors are very willing to help train you on the proper ways to do things. While the job can be difficult and extremely busy, it is one of the most rewarding jobs you can find.
Great co workers and a fun and productive place to work
Aircraft Fuel Systems Specialist (Current Employee), March ARB Moreno Valley CA – April 13, 2015
Pros: Great people, free lunches and great teamwork.
Cons: Work can be very physical sometimes and deal with loud, heat, cold environment.
A typical day at work would be tools and equipment accountability. Computer based training and mission readiness have to be a priority. My co-workers are great people. We have fun while getting the job done on time.
The premier place to learn discipline and leadership skills
AIR FORCE RESERVE OFFICER TRAINING CORPS (Former Employee), Charlottesville, VA – April 8, 2015
My two years in Air Force ROTC was a positive experience, despite the ups and downs that I experienced. The most important part of my time in ROTC was learning discipline that I definitely did not have coming out of high school. Paired with mandatory PT to keep me in shape and leadership skills that are taught in true military fashion, I took as much out of this experience as I could. Unfortunately I decided that the military path was not the way that I was meant to go and left after being granted my Enrollment Allocation, which would have allowed me to become an Officer in the United States Air Force.
Airman 1st Class (Current Employee), Keesler AFB, MS – April 2, 2015
There are benefits and structure that would change your everyday life for the better. Not to mention that everyone respects you just for wearing the uniform. The military discount comes in handy, especially when looking for apartment homes. Best part is, THEY HELP PAY FOR SCHOOL!
