Good work enviornment with great educational benifits.
Surgical Technologist (Former Employee), Fairfield, CAMarch 4, 2015
Pros: free health care
Cons: to many negative people.
A typical day was waking up at 5:30 Am to be at work by 6:30 Am. Surgery started at 7:00 Am sharp. I would scrub until noon where I would receive a lunch break. After that I would continue to scrub until 3:30, where I would be released. I would find out what cases I was responsible for the next day. Before going home I would research any unfamiliar cases that were posted.

Integral to national defense
Intel Analyst, Flight Leader, Liaison Officer (Former Employee), Dayton, OHMarch 4, 2015
Pros: healthcare, support systems, excellent training
Cons: relocation to new bases every few years
The USAF is fulfilling work with an important mission. Typical work days depend on your job and location. I always experienced a culture of professionalism and enjoyment of work. I learned about how to work with people from many different cultural backgrounds who brought expertise in many different areas of work. I developed leadership and management skills to overcome high stress situations as well as facilitate a productive environment. The hardest part of the job was changing locations and jobs every few years. It was made easier by the fact that others do the same and there is always a strong support network to help with transition. The most enjoyable part of the job was participating in team production which contributes to national defense.

best job I ever had
Aerospace Propulsion Journeyman (Former Employee), Whiteman AFB, MOMarch 4, 2015
Pros: opportunities one can only dream of
Cons: war
Looking back on my time in the Air Force, I wish I had known then how to be grateful and live in the moment. I was part of an entire base full of people who knew their jobs backward and forward. We got to play with tools that most people never see in their lives. I still can't believe that every day I got to touch, climb on and maintain a fleet of B2 Bombers. That was my job! To top that off, I had some of the best co-workers and mentors in the world by my side.

A great place work work and serve your country.
Structural Craftsman/Project Manager (Former Employee), Yigo, GUMarch 4, 2015
In my job, there is no typical day. You can do one thing one day and another the next. When the recruiter said that you can travel the world, you really can. Depending on how hard you work depends on how much money you earn. There is great camaraderie with your co-workers and the ones you meet down range on deployments.

NCOIC, Training Management (Current Employee), GuamMarch 4, 2015
Pros: travel, education, discipline.
Cons: deploying.
I learned a lot about time management and discipline from the Air Force. The most difficult part of the job was the fact that you were on duty 24/7 and could and did work long and odd hours that took you away from your family. The most enjoyable part of the job was all of the traveling that I was able to do. Overall, it was an amazing experience that served as a challenging and fulfilling learning experience that shaped who I am professionally and personally.

Loved being apart of something bigger than myself. I got tired of being seperated constanly for months from my kids.
Warehousing Specialist and Heavy eq. operator (Former Employee), Las Vegas, NVMarch 3, 2015
Pros: met some great people, got to see the world, learned to operate several peices of machinery, was proud to be serve my country
Cons: was tired of fightning a winless war, was tired of being seperated from my family.
If I knew that I would be in the position that I am in now, I would have re enlisted again. But when it came time to re enlist I wanted a job where I could provide for them better or just as good without the separation. Also the military provided a place where people could abuse their position and put their responsibilities on others.

Master Sergeant (Former Employee), tucson, azMarch 3, 2015
Great place to work with awesome pay and benefits that un-match anyone else. Not very family friendly, but military service comes before yourself always. Management always changed and that was good and bad at times. Fixing machines is my passion, and i got a lot of satisfaction from working there. Co-workers lacked motivation and management wouldn't fix it.

I love the military and had the best experiences in my life in the Air Force. If you are stuck in life with no job, or job that doesn't have great benefits, then look at the military. Free school, free medical. Can't go wrong.

Personnel Manager/Instructor (Former Employee), Various Air Force Bases around the US/GermanyMarch 3, 2015
Pros: service to the country and travel
Cons: being a long way from home, deployments, and pay was low
I had five wonderful assignments in a 20 year career. I had great supervisors and managers. They taught me many things that I still use today in my life and job management.
