Security Forces Member (Former Employee), Mcdill AFB Tampa FlAugust 18, 2015
Pros: good pay as well as benefits
Cons: very demanding and no room for personal life
I was a Base Defense Operations Controller and handled emergency phone calls as well as emergency situations. I learned how to handle multiple high risk situations at the same time. My co-workers enjoyed working with me due to my work ethics and dedication. The hardest part of the job was having to constantly change and adapt to situations with in seconds but was never something I could not handle. The most enjoyable part of this job being able to help people and make a difference in people's lives.

Journeyman E-4 (Former Employee), Dover AFB, DEAugust 17, 2015
Pros: Meet great people
Cons: limited family/school time
The management can be a mix bag. either Great leadership or poor work ethics from supervisors. The work day can be 12 hours of labor or 12 hours of cleaning and boredom. The most enjoyable part of the job is accomplishing missions and feeling of good service to the United States.

Strong mission oriented workplace
Aircraft Area Lead Manager (Former Employee), Dyess AFBAugust 15, 2015
A typical day at work would be a 10 hour shift and would begin by showing up to work 15 minutes early. Then the flight would get briefed by supervision about what tasks need to be completed. Then continuing Aircraft maintenance for the rest of the day.
I learned a lot of key skills while employed as an Active Duty airmen. I learned how to mange time in order to increase work productivity. I learned how to manage airmen under me and ensure that they were competent in their essential job tasks.
My supervision had a very by the book mentality. There were no shortcuts when it came to getting the job done. The whole unit worked as a team to accomplish our main goal, which was to get our jet back in the air.
The most enjoyable part of this job was after working on a jet all day, was watching it take off with a payload and knowing that it was going to come back empty.

There is no other job more rewarding and satisfying than to work in the United States Air Force. The opportunities which are provided to you are only outmatched by the benefits you earn. Worldwide travel, advancement opportunities, educational benefits and unmatched training which can be transferred upon separation or retirement.

Aircraft Structural Maintenance Journeyman (Former Employee), Albuquerque, NMAugust 14, 2015
It was the usual 9 to 5 job, most times it was more like 7am to 9pm its mainly a lot of hands on work that i personally enjoyed but the biggest conflict i had was mainly my co-workers i guess due to big downfall in morale and supervision not stepping up to end conflicts that could've resulted in physical altercations but only waited until one person had pushed it to that level so the supervisor would have a reason to yell and complain

New experiences through Aircraft work every day. Exciting
F-15C/D/E Flight Line Maintainer (Former Employee), Mt home AFB, Kunsan AB, Kadena ABAugust 14, 2015
Pros: Something new to learn every day
Cons: Short breaks, long hours, salary based.
My typical day at work was quite simple in terms of we knew exactly what we needed to do at all times. I learned that F-15 aircraft needed to be maintained daily properly to ensure its full potential being met. Sorties, talking to pilots, and the every day servicing of aircraft made the job exciting. Hardest part of the job would definitely be the long hours, but the satisfaction of knowing that you helped repair a war machine was amazing. My management depending on what base I was, were extremely helpful as well as demanding. Safety was preached every day and we all looked out for each other. My co workers were amazing most of them I went to technical training with. Any new base I went to I would run into old friends that I have met along the way. Most enjoyable part is that fact that I help maintain aircraft that helped keep our country as well as our allies safe.
