One of the very few organizations that can offer high-demand training with a guaranteed retirement. I thoroughly enjoyed all my assignment opportunities in the Air Force. I was fortunate to receive a lot of very exclusive and expensive education, as well as unique assignments. This helped me further advance my life after I retired from the Air Force.
Interesting and challenging work.
Reassignments to different locations.
The Air Force gave myself a sense of directions, goals, achievements and the opportunities for anything you desire to accomplish. Everything is there for you...go for it..reach your GOALS...The Air Force does the rest for you....Places to travel, live and work with and on multi-million dollar Air Force Inventory (Equipment) A very very good Branch of Service to serve and or make a career or life experience.
College tuition assistance, no tax, Chow Hall, Base Exchange, AFB's are a city, within a city.
Typical day in the Air Force depends on your AFSC, if you work maintenance ( Aircraft) you know that you will either be supporting the jets flying or you are going to reconfigure for the next days flying schedule. Hardest part of the job is dealing with outside forces and doing maintenance with low man power. The most enjoyable part of the job is working with a diverse group of people from all walks of life.
As enlisted, the job satisfaction is often out of your control. This is especially true for aircraft maintenance. This has been worsened by the relatively new EPR system, and being outstanding at your job doesn't necessarily translate to promotion. The benefits (GI bill in particular) allow you to complete your obligation and make the best of your particular skillset.
Be a soldier is Very fulfilling, an gives you great sense of purpose, job security, and self-worth. I wouldn’t change the experience I had in the US Air Force for anything in the world!
The mission is pretty great and gives a real sense of fulfillment. The culture is what kills it. It's become very management out for themselves instead of feeling like a family like it used too. Promoting each other became a thing of the past for a "me first" environment.
Sometimes unsociable hours, working with different teams at different times tackling a variety of tasks. Reporting to senior staff and managing juniour staff. Hardest part possible unsociable hours, most rewarding is the team bond.
Fantastic place to work, everyone is friendly and seems to know their job well. A little down side is there are a lot of small changes(nothing affects your workload) and a bit of red tape too. Overall I would thoroughly recommend working here and the benefits are excellent.
I was in maintenance so the typical day was fast-passed with long hours. They give you all the necessary training you need to do your job for the most part. With the way annual performance reports were set up, it was a very competitive environment as far as receiving positive promotion statements goes.
