Pharmacy Technician (Former Employee) – Colorado Springs, CO – December 29, 2013
Most days were pretty much the same. Morning and afternoon rushes of prescriptions. Higher management was harder to find because of all the pharmacies on base but the management that was left in charge were very good to work with. The hardest part of the job was learning where everything was in the pharmacy and the computer systems. The most enjoyable part of the job was working with my co workers and also interacting with the patients and volunteers.
The Air-Force is a good way to better yourself as a leader and mentor. Free training and the benefits are amazing. It will challenge you in all areas such as physically, mentally, and sociably. To somebody who is fresh out of high school or new to the civilian workforce, the Air Force is a great way to start your adult life.
Vehicle Maintenance Journeyman (Current Employee) – Mountain Home, ID – December 8, 2016
I'd do it all over again but differently knowing what I know now. I liked my co workers. The hardest part of my job was trying to figure out what managment really wanted done because of the lack of communication. The most enjoyable part of my job was learning a new job and getting diversified with work. I learned a valuable trade skill and also how to deal with different cultures.

Great overall work place and experience. Most days were busy, i learned a lot about management, leading and problem solving. My coworkers were relaxed, get the job done type people. The hardest part of my job was battling the elements outside everyday. Id have to say the brotherhood among the troops.
USAF Security Forces Criminal Investigator (Former Employee) – Provincia de Alajuela – December 8, 2016
I worked in Security Forces as a Law Enforcement Specialist. I was assigned to duties such as military installation control, routine police patrol and traffic control, law enforcement desk sergeant, criminal investigator, flight chief (shift supervisor), base customs inspections on aircraft coming in-country from out of country locations, emergency services team (SWAT) officer. You are assigned duties commensurate with your rank and rank is made according to time in service, experience and testing. Pay and benefits are adequate.
Positive working environment. Recognition for achievements
great for someone who wants to progress in the ranks of the service. better for officers. easy to get comfortable. Ultimately they are losing members due to private companies offering higher salaries depending on your job creating a deficit it manning.
Squad Leader (Former Employee) – Fort Walton Beach, FL – December 7, 2016
In my time in the United States Air Force I was challenged to out bring the best in my work performance. I also was allowed to grow and progress in a professional environment.

Benefits in education, healthcare, and job security
Scrum Master/Software Developer (Current Employee) – Maxwell AFB, AL – December 7, 2016
I work in wargaming software, creating the software used for educational, tactical, and strategic wargames. Having served on the military side of the house, this position gave me an opportunity to see the "BIG" picture, and gave me the opportunity to contribute to branch of the service that gave so much to me over the years.
Intel Operations Journeyman (Current Employee) – San Antonio, TX – December 7, 2016
A typical day at work had a great balance of outdoor/indoor work. There was a steady pace that wasn't too fast or slow. I've learned large amounts of knowledge in the avionics career field along with supervisory skills and learning how to be supervised at the same time. My management was extraordinary everywhere I went. Incredible professionalism was practiced within my management, as well as every single one of my co-workers. I would have to say the hardest part of my job was the deployment schedule. The most enjoyable part of my Air Force experience was the network and family you build through the comradery of your every day duties and accomplishments.
Great place to learn a skill so you can then get a better job in the civilian world. I stayed until retirement, the retired benefits are fine but being constantly reduced as the federal government looks for cost savings.
Good benefits and a salary while obtaining a skill which can be used in civilian work
Direct supervisors and middle management accept and foster only those people who are like them
Aerospace Maintenance Engineer (Former Employee) – Hickam AFB, HI – December 6, 2016
The Air Force helped me develop work skills that at 18 years old I had little knowledge about. I learned to be patient with myself and others when confronted with certain situations. It helped me see a goal and do what is necessary to complete that goal in a timely manor.
productive, educational ,OJT is great. Great mentorship
Personnel Specialist (Current Employee) – Tinker AFB, OK – December 6, 2016
The Air Force was one of the greatest decisions I could have made in my life. It has given me great opportunities to travel and experience many different cultures. I've met some great mentors and the comradery that is made in the different work environments were phenomenal. You grow to learn discipline and patience. In the Air Force you learn leadership skills early on and are able to put them to use quickly. Integrity has become one of the highest qualities I look for in a person, because of the Air Force. I could go on and on about my great experience.
