- 5.0Aug 7, 2019Safety ManagerFormer Employee, more than 10 years
The experiences are great!! Good people to work with and the travel can be good or bad depends on what you make it
The hours can be long and some supervisors aren't that great.
- 2.0Aug 12, 2014Air Force PilotCurrent Employee, more than 10 years
Education benefits are great, opportunities to travel. You will work with some very intelligent and capable people (there are also some of the opposite). Depending on what AFSC (job) you get you will get valuable training. Particularly good jobs to get are: pilot, contracting, acquisitions, and certain engineering positions.
"Leadership" punishes everyone when one airman screws up. You give up lots of personal freedom. You will likely go to awful places like Afghanistan. It can be difficult to spend time with family due to distance/ getting approved leave. Pay is considerably lower than civilian contractors that do the same work (but are almost always prior-military).1
