    I have been working at Royal Air Force full-time

    Pros

    Varied roles and frequent travel, a lot of in service benefits such as medical and pension benefits.

    Cons

    Inability to plan long term in life and there is a detrimental effect on family life, prolonged absences and frequently moving houses and schools. The overall package offered by the Armed Forces is decreasing at the moment.

    I applied in-person. The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at Royal Air Force in March 2011.

    Interview

    easy peasey. walked in, did an aptitude test, and after a while got a personal interview where they told me I could apply for any trade. the interviewer was friendly and steered me away from the worst trades, I would love to re join, would recommend to any young person.
