Watch Operator (Current Employee) – Chantilly, VA – May 7, 2014
222nd is a great unit with great people inside of it. They care and and actively want to help you. It is a relatively new unit but they have their eyes on the prize and have gone above and beyond the milestones required of them.
One of the best enviroments out of any guard unit I have seen, Get to see a lot of great things happening around the world
Although they are getting better at it, new airmen might want to ask the newer members on some pit falls, Might require some travel outside of state
Full Time Technician (Current Employee) – Fort Worth, TX 76127 – April 10, 2017
10 hours 4 days a week is the normal time-frame at work. Learn to pack parachutes, time M-1timers build type V platforms. Education is very Important always pushing you to Excel. Hardest part of the job is the lack of qualified personnel to accomplish the tasking that come down. Enjoyable part of the day, that you have a since of accomplishment that you produced a product that is air worthy and will help troops on the ground.
No breaks do to the workload. Lack of experience personnel

Typical government bureaucracy processes are what keeps the military running and many people employed, but at the expense of efficiency. There are plenty of opportunities for leadership and interesting training.
MATERIEL MANAGEMENT TECHNICIAN (Current Employee) – New Castle, DE – April 6, 2017
The Delaware Air National Guard is a great way for anyone to acquire experience or gain knowledge of certain skills. The military in general is a good experience, whether it's temporary or the individual plans to stay in for their entire career. I believe for myself it serves it's purpose to help to acquire a new career in the civilian world. I do not agree with everything that goes with my place of work but I respect the decisions made, and I will not dispute the rules or policies.
For myself I'm ready to start moving forward and look elsewhere for better opportunities. If anyone ever decides to join the military, it's a great idea for anyone to start gaining knowledge, experience, and help you become a more professional individual that respects guidelines and getting things accomplished.
Gain experience, skills, professionalism and discipline attributes.
Compensation, career advancement, and job security.
Cable and Antenna Systems Specialist (Current Employee) – Bourne, MA – April 6, 2017
It's the Air National Guard. I would feel redundant saying anything here, because this organization is too broad to be reviewed like a company. There are advantages and drawbacks to being in the Guard.
Best kept secret in the military. In the Guard you go through the same training that active duty receives with less of a commitment. within the guard there are opportunities to become Active Guard Reserve which is like active duty.
Job started great, was super happy, loved the job not the people. the long trips away from family was a major reason for wanting to get out. supervision was always against the shops and only out to make themselves look better.
Retiring-Lt Col (Former Employee) – Pilot, NV – March 27, 2017
Great place to work and have your education paid for. For younger members the opportunities are endless and if you are willing to work hard and study you can have your school paid for and gain valuable life/work experience.
Great place to work and learn from hardworking talented people

Aviation Operations Specialist (Former Employee) – Fort Lewis, WA – March 21, 2017
The only vice is the promotion system.
The unit I was stationed with was 66th tac. When soldiers are down and out, homeless, divorced or in trouble....this unit has hands down been what I would call a stellar example. The command is caring, thorough and compassionate. Buildings and equipment pretty new and clean
