Tactical Aircraft Maintainer Craftsman (Former Employee) – Beale AFB, CA – June 19, 2019
I loved my time in the USAF. Had circumstances been different i would have stayed for the full 20 years. Aside from long hours and political games I highly recommend the military lifestyle to anyone who can join. Travel the world and get paid.
Depends on your individual career field for what your experience will be.

I am a security forces member and have had more complications and a lack of support as opposed to most other career fields. I know there are better environments in this branch, I just have not seen security forces as a beneficial one.

No control over own life, Minimal acceptable pay for the work being done.
Aerospace Ground Equipment Journeyman (Current Employee) – Hill AFB, UT – June 19, 2019
A typical day at work is 7-4. In my career field, each day would consist of inspecting and maintaining various equipment. Additionally, driving on the flight line and delivering equipment was also required.
Military Working Dog Handler/Trainer (Current Employee) – California – June 19, 2019
While working here I was able to grow both professional and personally to better serve my country and community. I gained a sense of pride for my self and others with the family environment provided my the numerous units I was assigned and worked with.
Enlisting in the Air Force was a great decision. The work hours and pay are almost unbeatable for an individual with no college education. Highly recommend if you are a self-driven individual in good health.
Pay, benefits, coworkers, hours, travel.
Travel can also be a con for families, 6 month deployments.
Aircraft Structural Maintenance Apprentice (Current Employee) – Moody AFB, GA – June 19, 2019
A typical day in the life of a Maintainer in the US Air Force, at least for a 3-level, goes like this: wake up 5am, go to the shop and be there by 6:45am, work, mess up, work some more, go home, work on CDCs, eat, sleep, repeat.
trainer, task certifier, and project manager (Former Employee) – Massachusetts – June 19, 2019
My time in the service was filled with challenges that allowed me to grow as a person. I began my career at 18 years old and by the time I was 25 I had made important decisions and had more experiences than most people get in a lifetime. It was challenging work that came with stress. I could replace the experience and life challenging choices I had to make. It is a great start in life for everyone.

Landing Gear Machanic (Current Employee) – Layton, UT – June 18, 2019
Most supervisors are great, they do have a few good old boy supervisors that don't treat everyone fair and equal. But overall there's not a better job out there if you like to work and pull your own laod.
