The easiest and hardest job you'll ever have, at the end of the day it's very rewarding.

Aircraft Mechanic (Current Employee)
Charleston, SC

I have been working at US Air Force full-time for more than 10 years

ProsOutstanding benefits unmatched by anyone in the civilian workforce. Great travel opportunities. Great for career advancement, experience, education and training. For those who are motivated, you will learn to be a leader.

ConsDeployments have become longer and more frequent. Continual drawdowns and spending cuts means higher demands and more responsibility for everyone. Military lifestyle is not for everyone, you must maintain high standards of physical fitness and appearance.

Advice to Senior ManagementLead from the front. And make taking care of your people your first priority. If your people know you care about them, they will take care of the mission.
