A challenging but fulfilling work experience
Sortie Support Craftsman (Current Employee) –  Minot, North DakotaFebruary 13, 2017
A typical day for a crew chief can come in many broad areas. One area is completing day-to-day maintenance, including end-of-runway, postflight, preflight, thru-flight, special inspections and phase inspections. You would also diagnose malfunctions and replace components. Complete detailed inspections, record-keeping, and administration. While also providing supervision and coordination of aircraft care, as well as such varied duties as crew chief, repair and reclamation, and crash recovery duties. Management in the military can become quite hectic with the constant change of individuals taking command with different standards and procedures differing from each individual. The hardest part of the job would have to be the time away from loved ones. The most enjoyable part of the job would have to be the camaraderie and bonding with your fellow airman.
Pros
Military benefits
Cons
missing family, work conditions

Airman (Former Employee) –  TexasFebruary 12, 2017
You should know what you're getting into if you join the military/work for the military, that's not a negative thing, just know that you will work for what you earn and that's a guarantee. It's a different experience for everyone and some will enjoy it more than others.
Pros
Joining a family, good benefits, hard work means advancement, earn respect, builds character
Cons
Families are not straightforward, it's a tough life, work for every penny you earn

Proud to Serve
Losgistics, Contracts, Facilities, & EM Director (Current Employee) –  Cheyenne, WYFebruary 11, 2017
The typical work week will involve a continual shift between managing projects and supervising people to meet deadlines and achieve strategic goals.

The management styles can vary since there are regular rotations of leadership as people are moved to different assignments every few years. This requires one to be adaptable to several types of leadership styles.

The hardest part of the job is constantly shifting priorities that can change at a moment's notice depending on what leadership is focused on at that timeframe.

The most enjoyable part of the job is serving the country while serving families of those who serve.
