Working in the Air Force was great. I learned the value of discipline and teamwork. Co-workers were awesome and I could not have asked for a better group to work with. Had I not been Medically Discharged I would still be in
Supervisor (Former Employee), Malmstrom AFB, Montana – November 17, 2014
Pros: self gratification of task accomplishments
Cons: sometmes long hours and stess
the work was challenging from start to finish. Working on complicated electronic components to completion almost always gave a sense of satisfaction. The rules were straight line rules set by management to be followed by all in a similar. Supervising others was a different experience that took carefully performed traits. Each person in an organization, – more... no matter where, is still an individual person. Meeting each of their needs, while still reaching the goals is sometimes challenging, but not impossible if managed correctly. Working with mainly good people and acquiring daily goals, even though challenging, was something I enjoyed . – less
Security Police (Former Employee), San Antonio, TX – November 17, 2014
The military is an amazing experience that I feel every American should have to submit to. My Mos was Security Police, and the training was amazing, something that I feel like anyone could take on because of how awesome the training was. Difficult environment to train in, San Antonio TX but with deployments overseas it basically preps you for a lifestyle – more... that you will see eventually. – less

Financial Analyst (Former Employee), Dayton, OH – November 16, 2014
Cons: being away from family for long periods at a time.
Now, that I am no longer serving in the US Air Force, I have been able to reflect and evaluate the level of leadership. Some companies today will be able to strive towards their missions more effective if leadership was developed in a similar manner.
Master Sergeant, Superintendent (Former Employee), Washington, DC – November 14, 2014
Pros: plenty of leave, time off.
Cons: long hours, deployment.
Air Force (or Military in general) is not for every one. I had an enriching, educational, and life-changing time with the Air Force. Had some wonderful managers and mentors and not so wonderful. Met and worked with many interesting people.
A productive and proud career I held in serving my country.
Pest Management Apprentice (Former Employee), Whiteman AFB, Missouri – November 14, 2014
The day usually started with P.T. around 4am. after that we were relased to our shops, where we carried out pesticide operations for over 12,000 base facilities, including spraying the flight line, laying traps, and sometimes performing maintenance to get at insect nests. The job was very difficult and demanding, but it gave me a sens eof fulfillment – more... I've never had in any job before. – less
Inspector General Administrative Assistant (Former Employee), March AFB, CA – November 14, 2014
Pros: great leadership and flexibility, great experience and program.
Cons: not very good equipment or funding, under staffed, no room for contract negotiations.
This job could have easily been just answering phone calls and making some spread sheets or reports.
I found a great deal of interest with the data we were collecting and even picked a second degree in Software Engineering in the midst of the contract.
We analyzed inspection information gathered by Airmen to make for a more efficient and effective – more... Air Force, creating business intelligent programs from databases and created data visualization for Air Force commanders to make more accurate real time decisions with real time data.
The hardest part was taking on the challenge of learning programming languages to accomplish all the things we wanted to do in this contract, learning from scratch, no formal training, I gained a lot of aptitude for computer programming and multiple languages from this experience.
I have had the opportunity to take my experience to other units around southern California and train programs from the ground up as well. – less
