Program Analyst (Former Employee) says"I worked for Langley AFB for 10 years . Was subjected to bullying, unfair labor practices, no support from NAGE, un fair and discrimination from Personnel. No support from EEO. I will never recommend working for the Air Force. Cons: See above"
Security Forces 3P0X1 (Former Employee) says"All recruiters are liers suprise suprise make sure you know what you are signing up for because 4 or 6 years of your life is a long time to sign away. Military life is NOT FOR EVERYONE if you have the option to try for a better life outside the Military do that first the Military is a last resort option. Cons: Massive commitment you can not take back"
Aircraft Technician (Former Employee) says"They will leave you homeless and with no benefits and with terrible mental health. They don't care about you or your families. They don't provide what they promise. They treat you like property. Don't do it."
Air Traffic Controller (Former Employee) says"It's not worth it. They'll promise you everything, take everything away from you, and give you nothing in return. If you have good leadership, you'll be taken care of. That's extremely rare. More often than not, your leadership makes working a nightmare and as a low ranking member of organization, you're absolutely powerless."
Aircraft Maintenance Specialist (Current Employee) says"Being in the military taught me a lot, showed me that some people are only in it for them sleeves and they don’t care about the people below them I personally wouldn’t recommend my job in the airforce to anyone"
Nurse (Former Employee) says"terrible place to work when the managers are not supportive helpful or interested in you as a person The time I spent in the employment 2 years was very hectic unhappy and full of problems with management I went to upper management but was given lip service nothing else The turnover in employees was upsetting no one I worked with on a monthly basis was the same My manager would hit my fingers when I was training Lie to others about my work and how I would do my work that manager would do her nails be constantly on her cell phone and would hide when there was a long or hectic day so very glad to get out of that place"
Surgical Technologist (Former Employee) says"Short and sweet: If you end up with a command that treats you right, and values your skills, the Air Force is great. If you end up in a situation where the command only cares about work, work, work, work. Then life will start to suck. Favoritism, harassment, and maltreatment run rampant in today's politically correct Air Force. The sad thing is, if you work hard, they just keep piling on work until you fail."
Security Forces Journeyman (Former Employee) says"This job makes you want to die. You will feel all sense of joy and comfort in your life be sucked out of you by your leadership and then dangled in front of you as they tease you with having total control over your day to day. Homophobic, Sexist, Racist culture. I would have rated it 0/5 stars but that wasn't an option."
Security Forces Member (Former Employee) says"They treat you like garage. They don’t care about your will being, your family life, your mental health Or even physical health. Severely overworked, severely unpaid"

Electronic Warfare Specialist (Current Employee) says"It's as simple as this, do not join. The Air Force on average does not care about enlistees and overworked every person they have. If you need another reason not to join just look at the suicide rate."

Air Force Wounded Warrior (Former Employee) says"Treated like garbage at the end of my career. Just a number to them. Once you are injured, you are of no value to the Air Force. Nobody truly cares about your well-being or your success post-service."
Nuclear Security Operation Manager (Former Employee) says"If you can, go in as an officer, it's a much better use of your time. If you can't manage it, go in for four years and get your degree while you're in, then go officer"
Freight rate specialist (Former Employee) says"Don’t bother if you’re not a veteran. The US Air Force doesn’t even respect combat veterans with a Honorable discharge, how do you think they’ll treat you as a regular civilian? You won’t get hired as a regular civilian anyways. The Air Force is the biggest BS artist around. They love to parade and brag about how diverse they are but in the end, if you don’t rub shoulders in their good old boy club, you won’t last. Expect to work long hours, and make up for the slack for the Airmen that are suppose to be war fighters but they just cry all the time so it’s up to you as a civilian to over compensate for their weak mind state and lack of training. Run, far away and never look back. The Air Force is 15+ years behind on innovation and technology so expect your computer to never work and the computer system to never operate."
