Cons: travel every two years
I joined the United States Air Force in 1976. I thought basic training was tough, but was overjoyed when finished.

Airborne Cryptologic Language Analyst (Current Employee), Omaha, NE – November 18, 2014
Pros: reliable payment
The work in the linguistics field was fulfilling but compensation was not equitable. Although military emphasized the healthcare and fringe benefits of military life, these sort of benefits can be obtained from most civilian organizations.
Security Forces (Former Employee), F E Warren AFB, WY – November 18, 2014
Not your average 9-5 if you are security forces. The people you will meet are awesome. Well some. the places you'll see are ok depending where the Air force sends you. Enjoy You'll learn alot on your own and by a good mentor if you can find one. Look at the higher ups like seniors and chiefs

Working in the military was the best experience of my life. I grew as a professional and learned what it meant to accomplish a mission while working with teams. Furthermore, the Air force gives you the opportunity to lead and inspire people to accomplish a common goal.
Airman First Class (Former Employee), San Antonio, TX – November 18, 2014
Pros: free lunch utmost respect
Cons: being away from immediate family
The Air Force literally changed my life. I learned so much from every job title that I held. I learned how to be a productive citizen, and how to contribute to the needs of others. The managers were all excellent and possessed pure knowledge and skills to produce successfully trained Airmen. We all considered each other as wingmen, so no one was ever – more... left behind. There was no hard part of the job because we all worked together. The most enjoyable part of the job was knowing that we were family and we would make it through everything together. – less
Superintendent, Quality Assurance (Former Employee), Jacksonville, AR – November 18, 2014
Pros: working with a diverse group of people
Cons: being away from family for long periods at a time
A typical day at work would be overseeing a squadron with 460 personnel. Watching over the safety, procedures, and environmental daily functions. I was also the Supply subject matter expert which is the job I loved the most. I loved managing a section with 56 employees and training them on functions within the supply/inventory career field. The hardest – more... part of the job was being short manned due to deployments but at the same time fun, by organizing our time to make the job run smoothly. – less
Supervisor (Former Employee), Malmstrom AFB, Montana – November 17, 2014
Pros: self gratification of task accomplishments
Cons: sometmes long hours and stess
the work was challenging from start to finish. Working on complicated electronic components to completion almost always gave a sense of satisfaction. The rules were straight line rules set by management to be followed by all in a similar. Supervising others was a different experience that took carefully performed traits. Each person in an organization, – more... no matter where, is still an individual person. Meeting each of their needs, while still reaching the goals is sometimes challenging, but not impossible if managed correctly. Working with mainly good people and acquiring daily goals, even though challenging, was something I enjoyed . – less
