They don’t know how to take care of their people. I joined to travel and got stuck in the middle of no where. Horrible experience and horrible care from military doctors and horrible people have too much power. Hated it
They really take care of you. It's like a family culture. I couldn't change jobs therefore I didn't really enjoy it, if I could I probably would've enjoyed it a lot more. Benefits are superb, work life balance is second to none.
Benefits, free schooling, educational classes, fun activities, culture, respect, paid leave, ability to travel the world, deployments
Can't choose who you work with, exercises, Pt, "fun runs", can't always choose your next location.
You learn many new and challenging ways to handle different types of scenarios, ranging from deployments, retirements, military members Tricare benefits, and reserves everyday questions regarding employment.
Hardest part of the job is meeting deadlines for many reserve members in a minimal time period. The most enjoyable part of the job is helping your fellow reserve members with complicated issues that are not normally dealt with on an every day basis.
Managing and running the Force Management section smoothly is a very important priority to running my section.
As much as I loved the USAF, I left for one reason, I had a child and I was a single parent, therefore, during that time, late 70's, I would have had to give up custody of my child to a family member. My child needed me; therefore, as much as I hated to leave the USAF, I chose to leave so I could raise my child.
To this day, I am grateful for the many doors the opened by the USAF. I would recommend serving your country in any branch of the service. The benefits you receive are worth those 2 or 4 years served.
The U.S. Air Force has made me a better person. It has allowed me to get out of my comfort zone, grow tremendously, offer me opportunities to travel, and expand my skills. I have become stronger/better in all aspects - mentally and physically. Joining the Air Force is the best decision I have ever done!
The military is always better when you do not have a family. I worked at on base for 5 years, where I had no control over my life under that leadership. I got out and, the only thing I miss is TRICARE and my paycheck.
The best job i have ever had in my life. Basis on how i work now. Gave me drive and structure and taught me what it was like to work on a team...And look forward to giving that energy to another company.
I joined the AF when I was 18 years old and never regretted a minute of it. They gave me opportunity for advancement and travel and meeting new people with opportunities I would have never had any where else. The AF gave me the courage to learn.
Loved being in the Air Force! I was able to travel to Saudi Arabia and view other cultures very different from our own.
Being stationed at Tinker AFB in Oklahoma, I enjoyed a great base gym, dorms and office setting!
I served in the military for almost 5 years and I honestly if I could go back and do it again the same way, I would. Military helped me in so many ways with not only my family but myself. Typical work days were from 0700-1630 Monday thru Friday. Or if I was in my first job I worked more days and different times than regular Air Force members since I was s cop on the base. I had the chance to meet a great group of people in two career fields.
Great medical care, took care of my family and myself, met great people
A typical day in the military starts as early as 5am. I walk to work. Every day I leave my job learning more and more information about my position. The workplace is hectic at times, but that's customer service for you. We are a team, my coworkers as well as my superiors work together to fix any problem that cant be handled alone. The hardest part of my job is being patient. The most enjoyable part of my job is when my customers thank me for a job well done. Appreciation doesn't come often, so when it does, I am appreciative.
I assisted military personnel with international travel documents. I learned how to manage my work load effectively and efficiently. Dealing with management I learned how to properly delegate work, and to take delegation. In the work place I enjoyed the camaraderie, the trips and also the many different people I encountered. The hardest part was the extremely long hours and less opportunity for personal growth.
