Air Force Comptroller Life
I manage the enlisted side of the squadron and provide analysis, decision support, and leadership input to the commanding officer. A typical day sees me interacting with organizational personnel, unit superintendents and commanders, and high level wing leadership in moving pieces around to support the mission. I also ensure personnel are adequately trained to perform their job, and ensure deployment readiness is maintained. I often take an active role in assisting stakeholders with pay issues, budget inquiries, and other financial matters.
Note: The salary question is my monthly base pay and does not include the additional $1700/month I receive in allowances, hence my salary request to match with current quality of life.
Pros
I'm my own boss in many aspects
Cons
Dealing with irrational stakeholders

The Support Section is the heart of the maintenance operation. We supplied the tools, parts, fluids and technical manuals to make the job happen. The best part about the job is you get to interact with the entire shop every day and really get to know everyone on a personal level.

Its what you make out of it
The workplace culture is amazing, combining multi-cultural individuals that provide an advantage rarely seen. The management has been getting better while asking more from middle managers. All in all, the best place i have worked for.

It's the Military
Exactly what you would expect it to be. Military life is like no Other. There's a lot of good and a lot of bad. As you get promoted and move up the ranks things get more political

Solid life foundation
I am writing a review about the USAF. I feel Indeed has missed the boat by having me do this. If you are looking for direction, the USAF is the way to go. Just make sure you get a job you want to do.

I had a TS/SCI security clearance. My typical work day consisted of assisting in military operations. The hardest part about the job was that you cannot be complacent.

high paced job that required special care for patients and attention to detail
I enjoyed my job as a pharmacy technician. It was a fast paced job and always kept me attentive to what I am doing so that I could provide the best care possible. I obtained leadership, communication, and team work skills that I could translate from the medical field and into other fields such as retail management or entrepreneurship.
Pros
health benefits
Cons
lack of balance between home and work life

A unique experience
I have enjoyed working in the Air Force, but I am ready to branch out. I have learned many skills and am wanting to be able to apply them to the civilian world.

Aim high. The Air Force was good for me.
I enjoyed my time in the Air Force. They made me a cook. Not my choice but it wasn’t bad. It just guaranteed I got to go overseas. But North Dakota convinced me to take my chances in college.
Pros
Job security and good personnel
Cons
Long strange hours.

Gives you skills that can be used everywhere
You're experience is what you make of it. There are a lot of great opportunities you just need to go for them. Don't surround yourself with negative people. Take advantage of what the DOD has to offer because they will take as much as they can from you.

Very fast paced
The Dental clinic was a fast paced workplace. The coworkers were helpful and friendly. The hours there are a very good plus to work. I worked as a contractor and some things were different for us.

Great place to work
The US Air Force is a great place for total development (skills, socialization, education, and finance). You are limited by you. Few jobs take someone with nothing and totally invest before the person fully contributes to justify resources use d on them.

Air Force can be a good place to work
Benefits are great, you can’t beat them. Getting good leadership is a gamble, if you find a good leader stick around as best you can... they’re like unicorns
Pros
Benefits
Cons
Not taking advantage of modern work practices, obvious military negatives like deployments or lack of family time.

The military is obviously stable
I liked it, but my position was given to civilians. That is the reason I left the military. I would recommend it to any people in high school or college..................................................

Thriving work center, constantly reaching new goals
Enlisted in the Air Force for 6 years. Learned things I never thought I would. Didn't get the exact job I wanted but I learned so many valuable things throughout my enlistment. Grew so much in all aspects of life and do not regret joining the USAF. Their core values will stay with me as I change career fields. Truly changed me and my life.
Pros
Benefits, Salary pay, Flexibility with personal life
Cons
Not much moving around, stuck at 1 base for 5 years
