I learned a lot in the military
Floor Lead (Former Employee), Warner Robins, GAJuly 30, 2015
Working in the Air force was very demanding as being a mechanic. It was very face pace and you had to pick up on the knowledge that was giving to you quickly.

Target Analysis/Reporter (Former Employee), Lackland AFB, TXJuly 29, 2015
Very challenging, but rewarding experience. The military has a lot to offer and can help most people advance in their lives. They encourage further education and provide security and comfortable lifestyles (unless you're sloppy with your money).

CLIENT SYSTEMS SUPERVISOR (Former Employee), Tampa, FLJuly 29, 2015
Pros: Good Structure, Good Benefits
Cons: Became way too political
I started out as a phone guy accomplishing inside and outside plant telephone work, and then the Air Force merged us Wiredawgs with computers and made us Client Service Technicians. The AFSC (AKA MOS for Army folks) was 3D1X1. It was a multifaceted role in which we worked on telephones, computers, printers, scanners, faxes, MFDs on both the classified and non-classified side

One of the best choices I have ever made in my life
Firefighter/EMT (Former Employee), everywhereJuly 29, 2015
Pros: being a part of something greater than yourself

Highly focused, structured, rewarding and no nonsense
Trainee (Former Employee), San Antonio, TXJuly 28, 2015
Pros: Structured, well paying, near perfect job security, guaranteed advancement opportunities, high degree of camaraderie, no nonsense
Cons: Very little downtime, high physical demand, not really what I was looking for
It was a great experience to help me to grow and expand my horizons, even if it did turn out to not be what I was looking for with my life. The high degree of focus and structure, combined with a no nonsense – more... outlook, made for a very enjoyable environment for me. Recreation had a specific time and place, which was not during working hours, which is the type of work I really enjoy. I was challenged every day to do my best, and strove for that degree of excellence to which I was pushed. Growing and maturing happened as a natural part of my time there, and I was very pleased with this. – less

Law Enforcement Specialist (Former Employee), Pease, Taegu, and McGuire AFBsJuly 28, 2015
Looking back, 25 yrs later, I wish I had remained in the Air Force. Advancement was slow, but that was a known commodity. The multiple roles I filled within my particular AFSC were varied and provided a future in the corporate security areas.
