Fuel system mechanic (Former Employee) – Oklahoma City, OK – February 5, 2016
typical day when there was an aircraft to work on would be to seal up the hangar and prepare to open up fuel tanks. Put in the ventilation to remove the fuel vapors. Gain entry to tank then find the spot that was leaking so it could be removed and repaired. after repair's were completed the aircraft would be towed out of the hangar and put back out on the flight line to be ready to go back for mission readiness. Everyone worked as a team to accomplish the same goal in a timely manner. you learn the importance of team work and finishing job's before deadline's are up.
COMBAT CONTROL OPERATOR (Former Employee) – Pope AFB, NC – February 4, 2016
I loved being in the military. I dedicated six years to my job and country. I deployed without question and followed orders. My men trusted me and followed me without question. I would not take one moment of it back.
DoD Biomedical Equipment Technician (Former Employee) – Montgomery, AL – February 4, 2016
I enjoyed my time while I was enlisted in the united states air force. A normal day at work would consist of coming into work to friendly faces and we would knock out as many medical work orders as we could in a day.
I really enjoyed the day to day responsibilities of working the equipment and fellow soldiers. My day was organized and my work load acceptable. The hardest part of the job was the deployments and time away from family.
After serving 10 years in the military, or anywhere, you will come across all of the good, bad and the ugly. My experience in the military has had many ups and downs however, I have always loved and enjoyed being apart of the worlds best Air Force. Working in law enforcement no day is the same or typical. There wasn't really any "hard" part of the job, the overall military life is taxing so for those who don't last long mainly have a hard time adjusting. Once you pass that portion of military life it is relatively easy. The most enjoyable part of the job is having people around you that you can depend on even in the most dire circumstances.
Weather Forecaster (Former Employee) – Bellevue, NE and Bossier City, LA – February 3, 2016
I learned a lot about my self while serving in active duty for my country. It was an amazing experience. The hardest part of the job is clearly the deployments to combat zones. I had the most amazing co-workers in the world. All of them are like my brothers and sisters.
Maintenance Management Analysis/Database Manager (Former Employee) – world wide – February 3, 2016
The Air Force is a great branch to be a part of in the military. A typical work day in the Air Force was very busy. We worked anywhere from 9 to 15 hours usually Monday through Friday. We are taught how to be very productive and manage our time wisely. My coworkers were tolerable. You have people from all walks of life working next to you, so it was a great way to network and understand how other people may do certain things. The most enjoyable part about the Air Force was the travel. I served 6 years and three months and got to travel to 21 different countries.
It was an amazing experience. I had the chance to see the world and defend my country.
