As a Test Specialist, I travel around the United States to multiple Air Force bases conducting test events on C-17 maintenance trainers. It is a very rewarding job, a lot to be learned, all of which I find extremely enjoyable. Most of my time is spent away from my permanent work location but anyone within the company that I need to contact is usually just a phone call away and prompt to address my needs. I would say the hardest part of the job is being away from my family. The most enjoyable part, for me, is getting to learn about aspects of a trainer that I've never seen before. Example, how software is developed.
Travel to places I've never been
I'm a contractor so no health benefits and lower pay. Also, a lot of time spent away from my children.
