The U.S. Air Force is an extreme adventure which allowed me to work on aircrafts an experience other cultures.
Maintenance Technician (Former Employee), Fairfield, CA – March 29, 2014
Pros: dedication to service. cohesive team work.
Cons: all good things soon come to an end
On a typical day in my Air Force life I was challenged with an aircraft that was unable to fly. With the skill and technology that I learned in Technical School I was able to deploy, repair aircraft systems and recover the aircraft and fly home on that aircraft with confidence in doing the job correctly the first time.
My hardest days on my job was after all the work I had done on aircraft, seeing my fallen armed forces comrades come home draped in Red, White, and Blue caskets while I was standing in formation. I could not save any of them, but now I fully understand why I chose this path and what it means to honor God and Country!!! Integrity First. Service before self. Excellence in all I do.
Crew Chief (Former Employee), Edwards AFB, CA – February 27, 2015
Hard work and dedication to serve your country on a daily basis no matter what the job task is in front of you. Being able to work on aircraft like the A-10, F-22 and F-16 was the greatest experience I could ask for while serving my time in the USAF.
Security Forces Specialist (Former Employee), San Antonio, TX – February 27, 2015
I loved being in the Air Force. Meeting new people and traveling was a great experience. The hardest part of the job was basic training and after this training was the best that I could experience until later. I learned a lot. Attention to detail, patience and discipline. My co-workers were great and I would do everything all over again if I were 20 again.
Avionics Electronic Warfare Systems Technician (Former Employee), Shaw AFB SC – February 26, 2015
Pros: close friends and a seance of meaningfulness
Cons: long hours and hard work for little praise
Not an overly stressful job. It taught me a lot on how to manage and relate to people of diverse backgrounds and how to follow and lead correctly. For the most part the people associated with my area of expertise were kind and supportive in there own way. But the hardest part of the job is understanding that its not over when you get off of work. The best part of the job would be the people associated with it, they are overwhelmingly supportive when you need a friend.
Executive Administrative Assistant (Former Employee), Luke Air Force Base – February 26, 2015
Pros: training, pay, environment
Cons: frequent moves and deployments
The United States Air Force is a highly professional organization that provides unparalleled training and support to its members. The benefits and compensation for serving until retirement can't be matched in today's corporate environment.
Flight Chief (Former Employee), Globally – February 26, 2015
Pros: great benefits
Cons: around the clock work schedules
This is a great place to be if you want to travel the world, get a great education, and build lasting friendships. One can start at the entry level and progress with time to what ever rank or position they can throughout testing and performance appraisals.
Munitions Systems Craftsman (Former Employee), Nellis AFB, NV – February 25, 2015
Pros: working with amazing selfless people
Cons: the work always comes home with you
I worked for the U.S. Air Force as a Munitions Tech. I assembled bombs, missiles, rockets and many other munitions for our pilots to train for wartime. Working with amazing and selfless people is the greatest part of the job. The hardest part was long days and working weekends.
MEDIAL ADMINISTRATIVE SPECIALIST (Former Employee), Sheppard AFB TX Eglin AFB FL, Arnold AFB TN – February 25, 2015
Pros: too many to mention
Cons: too few to mentoin
It is hard to give a review on the USAF it wasn't just a job, it was my life, I served my country for 15 years and would not change anything about any of my experiences, no matter what the issue was.. It made me a stronger person a better person and a proud person.
