    Big bonus
    6 on 6 off deployment ratio but only a few go and it usually if you ask to go for the most part
    6 years 6 figures ....outside companies are hot for you
    part of your 7 level upgrade is to get 24 credit hours in AFSC related classes


    Lots and lots of paper work and doing the same style work over and over again. Can be a very boring job at times but very relaxed and they are big on you getting an education.
    End of Fiscal year is your busy time and could suck for a month of two.
    Lots of market research and meetings with contractors

    there are 3 sections to work in and the construction side of the house is where everyone wants to be. I work with them as part of my job so know a bit of what they do in that area.


    I am trying to cross train into it but it is hard because of my current job and I am not in my first term.

    Thanks for the info
    Couple more questions though
    Why the construction side? I didn't think the AF really gave bonuses? I really want to get a degree while I'm in so I'm learning towards this since it's more encouraged it seems and I'm looking for setting up something in the civilian world also so I think this may be a good fit.

    Well I am not sure but seems like the most fun side and the hardest to get into. You need a lot of classes and certs before you can become a CO though.

    Well not sure about enlistement bonus but a re enlistement bonus the SRB is huge its ilke a 7 for A B and then a 4.5 for C or D

    So you would take your base pay at the time x number of years you are going to re enlist for x the SRB

    that is your bonus

    you get half up front the rest spread over the number of years in your new enlistment.

    Got it, thanks.
    Also, is there any differences in this if you go in as officer vs enlisted?
    Thanks for the help. :o
