Craftsman (Current Employee) – ID, Korea, England, Kuwait, Germany, Japan, MO – October 2, 2015
I was sent to four other countries for this position and was lucky to experience it. Management in the military is never very effective or efficient. There are great leaders, but they are few. There are jobs that are not enjoyable, but I did not have one of them. The typical day would be to show up to work, grab a cup of coffee, go over turnover notes, and then chit chat for about an hour while the older married member live vicariously through the stories of the younger single troops. Then you dawn your PPE and go make some sparks. I worked in a Aircraft metals technology shop. We got to play.... I mean we worked with all sorts of metal cutting, welding, and fabrication assisting machinery. My favorite part of the job, was all the locations I lived in.
