opportunity to have a career with the CA National Guard
Staff Environmental Scientist (Former Employee), Los Alamitos, CAOctober 15, 2014
Pros: being able to interface with many people, both in the military and community
Cons: reduced funding for projects and not moving as fast as i might like on occasion
Prior to my coming to the Guard in '91, there had been no environmental compliance staff position. I literally had the chance to create and develop the position from the beginning. The most enjoyable part of my job was getting to interface with everyone from the hanger mechanics to the post commander almost every day. Being the only staff position for – more... over 15 years, I learned to manage projects and personnel in a variety of ways ( a civilian having to manage, teach and supervise military personnel). The most difficult part of the job was that sometimes government doesn't move at a pace that one might like. I had the privilege to work with some of the finest individuals anywhere, both officer and enlisted. Again, one of the most enjoyable parts of my day was, many times I would plan my day/week out and what needed to be accomplished was nothing I had planned. I learned to be very resilient and versatile. I also had the opportunity on many occasions to act as the post commander's point of contact at city council meetings and key individuals in the community along with local, state and federal regulatory personnel. I feel that my biggest accomplishment was that in twenty years, the CA National Guard received no fines, notices of violation or compliance orders during my tenure. – less
