F-16 Crew Chief (Former Employee), MOntogmery – March 30, 2015
We have dead lines we had to meet to keep jets in the air. The job had its stress but was fairly laid back and easy going. It can be fairly complicated getting into problems with the jet and other equipment we might have used on it. But the more you use it the more efficient you can become with it. Everything had to be documented, signed off by the supervisor, then logged into the computer for management overview. The people you work with will be your best assest, otherwise deadlines will never get meet and you will easily become overwhelmed. But with the military your co-workers become your family and you learn how to work efficiently together.

I enjoy this job very much and enjoy working with my colleagues. While working on the aircraft we create a fun and productive atmosphere. The adherence to safety is paramount and training of the younger, newer personnel ensures these characteristics of the job is carried forward.

Air crew flight equipment Technician. (Former Employee), Phoenix, AZ – January 25, 2015
Pros: serving your country. seeing other counties.
Repairing and inspecting aircrew equipment on a typical day. The hardest part is going back to your other job. The most enjoyable part is going home after a deployment. Having a supervisor you respect is priceless.
Aerospace Propulsion Technician (Current Employee), Springfield, IL – December 17, 2014
Pros: great benefits, life long friends, and the pride of serving in the united states military
Everything done within the military is strict and orders need to be followed. With that being said, the work atmosphere is fun and all of the men and women get along within the work environment. There are many different jobs that you can do within the Air Force. You have to stay in good physical shape because of requirements you have to pass. Over time, through promotions you gain management and supervisory experience. You also learn about higher decision making with a team and the process for these decisions.

I enjoy my job, I am using my GI Bill, and tuition assistance. My supervisors are great. I have learned so much. The training is a lot of hands on and some book work. I love working at the air shows and working with the guys in my shop. It is a great experience.
