Weapon Director (Current Employee) – Orange, CT – September 6, 2018
My unit really helped me grow as a man and contribute positively to the society we serve. joining the military was the best decision i made but it definitely isn't for everyone. you have to be very determined, do what's morally right and most of all put the service before your self.
great people, traveling expenses free, healthcare, many opportunites, retirement and bonuses
The United States Air Force is a great organization which can stand aside any Fortune 500 company. It employs dedicated men and women from all walks of life who are public servants. You are afforded benefits to include a great salary, education and medical benefits.
Salary, education, medical, career, dependants are taken care of, etc...
There are times when you're TDY or deployed and away from your family
ANALYST (Former Employee) – Ft. Meade, MD – December 10, 2018
Most days are good. People most often focus on their missions in their workplace and work towards making everything more efficient. The people you will meet will change your life and for me it was in a positive way.
I love the Air Force and the U.S. Military. However, the only reason I desire to leave is the people I worked under. They are selfish for the most part and I do not want to operate under those conditions.

The Air Force provides you with training and skills which transfer and prepare you for life in the civilian job world. Everything from education to travel may be at your disposal if one applies themselves.
Aerospace Medical Service Technician (Former Employee) – Fairborn, OH – December 10, 2018
The Air Force provides a great source of income and training for young folks who have little to zero college education or work experience. The GI Bill is a great benefit to further your education after service. While AD the benefits can not be matched. That being said it is not for everyone. There is a reason that enlistment is highly selective. You will be put into positions of great responsibility at a young age and will have the expectation to perform at a high level. You will also be expected to put your service before yourself. This will manifest as deployments where you will be put in harms way or long hours to accomplish the mission. Generally your work will be rewarding when you realize the true impact of your contribution but you will likely never receive any financial gain that will equal the amount of hard work you put in. Your co-workers will become your family and will continue to be a part of your life in someway forever.
"Travel", education and health benefits
Hazardous work environment, possible family separation, moderate pay
Electronic Service Craftsman (Current Employee) – Rapid City, SD – December 10, 2018
I learned a lot working for the military. Hours and pay are not the best but that's given being a military position. However the connection and learned skills are very valuable plus all the health and education benefits you get \.
Weather Forecaster (Former Employee) – Barksdale AFB, LA – December 10, 2018
I joined soon after high school with the promise traveling the world with a exciting career. I only saw 3 states in the south and nothing was exciting about being a weather forecaster. They have good benefits though.
