    I have been working at Air Force Research Laboratory full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Overall, great place to work. Working for the Air Force is the best of both corporate and military life that you can get. Working in an S&T and R&D environment allows flexibility and ease of work. Everyone from management to fellow co-workers and contract customers are wonderful to work with. It's very laid back. You have opportunities to learn and grow and excel in personal and professional development. Great place for engineers, fabrication machinists, scientists and chemists to experiment, work, explore, and do what they do. There are plenty of opportunities for work in the science and development of rocket technology. I love the advancements, the projects and the work we do. It's amazing!

    Cons

    9/80 schedule leads to long days because of a 50 mile commute. Not much opportunity for administrative professionals like myself to advance or move. Sometimes, people can be difficult to work with depending on how long that person has been here and how much they don't like change. No travel for admin personnel (but plenty of travel opportunities for engineers).

    Advice to Management

    I would love for opportunities for administrative personnel such as myself to move and advance or crossover elsewhere.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through other source. The process took a week. I interviewed at Air Force Research Laboratory (San Antonio, FL).

    Interview

    Very low key. I was mostly asked questions on my educational background and where I thought I could fit in to the organization. I actually interviewed over the phone without knowing prior to the call. So as far as that situation came about, the interview was very mild.

    Interview Questions

    • Questions were mostly based on educational background. They were very interested in computer/mathematical modeling, organic chemistry, explosives design, and design of experiments.   Answer Question
