E-4 Mechanic (Former Employee) – Hill AFB, UT – March 27, 2017
I would work on many different types of aircraft everyday. I learned a lot about the maintenance on aircraft and how to keep an aircraft airworthy. The management was always fair. The workplace was extremely team oriented. The hardest part of the job was the pay and best part was the work.
Installed life long core values and sense of purpose.
United States Air Force (Former Employee) – Travis AFB, CA – March 27, 2017
The United States Air Force provided me with the tools necessary to become a leader in not only my community, but also in my own day to day life. The core values were taught in basic go a long way after your service is over with.
Aircrew Flight Equipment Journeyman (Former Employee) – Marysville, CA – March 27, 2017
6 years enlisted consists of daily lifestyle changes including moving, learning new ways of doing your current job and OJT on a daily basis. I would recommend going to school and becoming an officer before enlisting
My time was cut short due to a medical condition, but I enjoyed working for the US Air Force. I felt that I was taken care of as well as my family. The workplace culture depended on what shop you are working at. I enjoyed working the Fitness Center.
I served for over 24 years. It was a great career. There was plenty of good and bad as one should expect with military service. It is a different game now, so I don't know how it would be to serve now.
Supervisor (Former Employee) – Albuquerque, NM – March 27, 2017
I started work around 0630 and worked till 4pm or later depending on the responsibilities and needs of the day and week. As a supervisor I had confidence in my ability to manage my day and take care of my needs besides seeing patients and mentoring lower ranking airman. I enjoyed the challenges and opportunities to grow and teach. Leadership meetings helped ease communication flaws and understanding in the ever changing environment.
Amazing opportunity working on awesome aircraft. Long days/hours, but lifelong friends made. Traveled all around the world, experienced many cultures. Learned allot about my air frame, and leadership skills. Great experience overall.
Water and Fuel System Maintenence (Former Employee) – Whiteman AFB, MO – March 26, 2017
As most military members can vouch the Air Force is one of the more desirable branches. In my experience after your basic training at your main station. You wake up do morning exercises get ready for work. Show up and get your morning assignments then with your crew you head out to do your work finish it as soon as you can, receive your next job and so on. And after a while you can attend classes for your job to further your knowledge. Albeit sometimes it is mandatory but it can be beneficial to you once you exit the military into the civilian life.
USAF is the greatest military service in the United States of america
Intelligence Analyst (Current Employee) – Fort Meade, MD – March 26, 2017
Leadership, development, and professionalism are strong foundations they teach that have helped my growth and experience for the civilian sector. With their training I know I will succeed as I pursue new opportunities.
Aircraft Production Superintendent (Current Employee) – Tampa, FL – March 25, 2017
The United States Air Force is a great opportunity to learn a trade or skill while earning money for college. While serving, they also offer money for certifications related to your job in the military. Job security is a big incentive as well as job satisfaction.
Free healthcare; housing allowance; food allowance; 30 days vacation a year
The Air Force is a great experience. I think everyone should at least serve the minimum commitment in any military branch because you will learn and experience things you'll never get to experience in the civilian side.
