I worked at US Air Force full-time (More than 10 years)
Being part of something bigger than yourself
Teamwork - working with people who are as passionate about what they do as you are
Travel - moving every few years keeps things fresh and interesting
Benefits - the Air Force takes care of its own and their family members
Deployment tempo - a consequence of budget cuts that thinned out the force and being forced to do more with less resources and manpower
Advice to Management
Keep fighting the good fight with Congress to do get what is needed to carry out the missions the country expects from those who are willing to give all
I applied in-person. The process took 4+ months. I interviewed at US Air Force.
There is no real interview process. If you are interested, you need to locate your closest recruiter. From there, you will be asked to provide some documents and will fill out paperwork for jobs you may be interested in. you will also need to complete the ASVAB to determine what jobs you qualify for.
