Structures Engineer (Current Employee) – Egg Harbor Township, NJ – July 26, 2016
Ive learned a lot in the Air Force, people are great to work with, I enjoy my job and everyone works together. the hardest part about the job is getting orders to get deployed for 4-6 months. It'll be hard on having a family. Most enjoyable part is that you can see the world, not many people can say they been around the world in a couple years.
Excellent place to work and learn a great trade while serving your country.
Supervisor/Dispatcher (Former Employee) – Travis AFB, CA – July 26, 2016
A typical work day would be to arrive early for work and figure out what all needed done for the day. Make sure all machines were in operational condition. Account for all tool and equipment make sure nothing was left on a plane. One great thing I learned from this job is to learn from those around you. Everyone has a different way of doing things. Always listen to the more experienced people you work with the learn what they have learned over the years. The most enjoyable part of the job was knowing you are part of something bigger then yourself helping people all over the world. Also you get to decided how far you go and advance in your career.
Aircraft Armament Weapon Systems Specialist (Current Employee) – Shaw AFB – July 25, 2016
Lots of hands on but it is hard to be rated with your peers and maintain a normal life style at the same time. Most of the people you work with are the same as you, so you grow close and form close friendships.
no telling what hours you are going to work week to week
Industrial Mechanic (Current Employee) – Spokane, WA – July 23, 2016
Working the the USAF will give you many opportunities to advance in both your career and your skills. They provided leadership and communication classes which will help you learn to eventually lead teams. Healthcare benefits are probably the best you can get and you rarely ever have to worry about getting billed for anything.

I entered the USAF after attending one year of college. I worked in the communications field where I helped provide secure transfer of information to users worldwide. I also was trained in mobile communications that we would do while out in the field or on exercises away from base.
Supervisor, Patient Affairs (Former Employee) – Hawaii, New Mexico, South Carolina, Germany – July 21, 2016
For six years I was training and challenged in my profession. There were many opportunities for traveling and experiencing the world. The best base locations of any of the services. Most jobs are like an 8 to 4 job.
Structured, and Stable work environment with fellow professionals and specialists in your field.
Aircraft Fuel Systems Journeyman (Current Employee) – Moody AFB, GA – July 21, 2016
My experience in the Air Force has been great. I had ample opportunity to travel the world, serve my country and build the home life I've always wanted. I learned more about production, management, and maintenance than I ever would have at a 4 year college. I loved being able to go out and work on multi-million dollar aircraft with the expertise and competence to do so effectively. Being trusted and depended on by my superiors was an empowering feeling that I hope to carry over into the civilian world with my ambitions and expertise on many different subjects.

Medical Technician (Current Employee) – Peru, IN – July 21, 2016
its decent. The base is terrible. Use it as a stepping stone. the people can be someone difficult to work with. There is no work life balance. There is no room for advancement. People will not retire and allow others to move up
Staff Sergeant / Aerospace Medical Technician (Former Employee) – earth – July 21, 2016
Pros The work environment is generally positive and there's an atmosphere of care and commitment to promoting good outcomes for patients. NSMC's outlook moving forward appears quite stable as a member of Partners Healthcare. Cons NSMC sites and department locations are disperse and this can result in feeling fragmented. Advice to Management Consultation and collaboration between direct service providers and senior management fosters a more positive work culture and should be expanded.
Superintendent (Former Employee) – Travis AFB, CA – July 20, 2016
Outstanding .... simply stated .... Outstanding There is no way to express the feeling of being a part of something bigger than yourself, and the willingness to put your life on the line for your Brothers/Sisters-In-Arms, knowing they would do the same for you.
