It has been a wonderful time, you meet a lot of great people. Constantly moving, they take care of your family. I have gained a lot of experience in a short amount of time with the high pace lifestyle of the USAF

The Best Branch of Service
Junior Radar Technician (Former Employee) –  Holloman AFB, NMJuly 24, 2017
Absolutely amazing experience to serve in the military in any branch because of the many opportunities, I feel the Air force is a lot more education driven than the other branches and is more willing to work with you through your personal goals.The benefits, like any other branch, are the reason why serving is such a good decision for your future security and education.
Pros
holidays off

High tempo that is physically and mentally demanding

Challenging but rewarding
Intelligence Analyst (Former Employee) –  Honolulu, HIJuly 23, 2017
Just like every branch of the military there was good and bad things. Admittedly Air Force sucked the least with the other branches. I fully recommend the Air Force for people who want to get a head start.

Fun job, terrible for some
ECM Pod Shop Mechanic (Current Employee) –  Fort Wayne, INJuly 23, 2017
The air force definitely taught me how to be a leader, work smarter and all that but it definitely is not for everyone. If you want to be in the military you will enjoy it, but trust me if you do not have the job you want, it will be terrible.

Do what you are told to do in a timely and efficient manner, and no problems will occur. Failure to do so is treated just like any other military branch, spoiled or not.

Air force is great overall
Pharmacy Technician (Former Employee) –  ItalyJuly 22, 2017
The Air Force is a wonderful job overall, but rank is taken advantage of. And personal views are too much of the work environment. Signing a contract didn't necessarily mean you are promised anything. Benefits are amazing.
Pros
Job security, benefits
Cons
Rank, biases
