The most challenging and rewarding position I've ever had.
AERIAL LOGISTICS OPERATIONS MANAGER (Former Employee) – Fort Bragg, NC – August 22, 2015
This position taught me how to balance a multitude of management expectations, as well as time/resource/personnel management requirements. Not only was this a very difficult position to maintain, but I loved it! I was always busy, always working, and worked my butt off. In a nutshell, I was required to facilitate contracts for airborne operations and plan, resource, and execute these contracts allowing 800 personnel to jump out of airplanes over drop zones all over Fort Bragg in day and night time operations.
Additionally, I managed these operations and oversaw all the personnel who conducted various duties. These included the jumpmasters in the aircrafts, the Drop Zone Safety Officers on the drop zone and advising the Airborne Commander (usually this was an individual who outranked me by time in grade and time in service).
This was, without a doubt, the most rewarding logistics and operations management position I've ever had.
Achieved the trust from my superiors and they never looked over my shoulder
