    I have been working at Hill Air Force Base full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Time off and pay for what is required. Like working 4 - 10's, can work as much OT as desired.

    Cons

    The culture on base is ridiculous. No regard for rules or regulations. Common answer for any question: "It's the way it's always been done". A lot of fat that needs to be trimmed.

    Advice to Management

    Hold people accountable.

    Pros

    The wage rate working at hill AFB is beyond any other employer in the state for the same type of work

    Cons

    The management is not exactly educated in their line of work and if you are part of the good old boy club you too can bee one.

    Advice to Management

    Don't think that just because you are in a managerial position that the people under you don't know whats best when it come to the refurbishment of flight controls. They are the people you should listen to.

    I worked at Hill Air Force Base full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    You'll work in a secure location with some very dedicated and well intended young Airmen who love their country and wish to do good things.

    Cons

    Poor attitudes, poor working relations and support among tenant organizations, egotistical leaders who are driving their best employees away and promoting mediocrity. The complainers get rewarded and are never held to task. Those in charge of the 419 FW have no real business sense and waste money frivolously on projects that never gain traction or bear fruit.

    Advice to Management

    Start walking the talk and taking care of those people who are genuinely taking care of the mission rather than simply making you look good.
