Great start for career. I had a fun group to be around and great supportive managers (luck of the draw here). Satisfaction from helping serve the country, and opportunity to test the latest and greatest. Free food (of varying quality). Comp time was great for salary workers, depending on your group you may be working 4 days a week every week. 4 extra random days off thanks to the military, plus 10 holidays. Start at 15 days of vacation, with the opportunity to buy more. Benefits started out excellent, were cut back to more of the industry norm in 2014 (HSA).
Morale highly dependent on the group you end up in. Lots of people skate by without doing much of anything, some for many years. Extra hours without extra compensation (some very early), time away from your family and electronics can be tough. Bit of a transition if you have no military background to dealing with the bureaucracy. Military leadership is wide ranging in decision-making ability and technical expertise, sometimes paralysis occurs.
Advice to Management
My interactions with senior management were always positive. They offered a way to send message messages (some anonymous) and get a reply. Top management tends to be very ex-military heavy, so if you lack that background don't expect to rise too high.

- Accepted OfferPositive ExperienceDifficult Interview
I applied through a recruiter – interviewed at JT3 (Las Vegas, NV).
First I received a phone interview where I was asked some technical electronics questions. Then I was told that they were interested and wanted me to come for an in-person interview. The in-person interview was conducted in a casual and professional manner where basic electronics questions were asked. The panel was easy-going and very relatable. Overall, it was a great experience that built my confidence up considering that this is a new career field for me.
