    I'm on the "find a new job" list. It's not critical since I'm way far up on it, but I'm curious to see if anybody has anything to say about this career field. It's one of the few on the "in" list that looks interesting.

    I guess the first and most obvious one... do the weather guys (specifically enlisted) enjoy their jobs? I'm going to 20, what do the civilian employment opportunities look like?

    in this shop there are no civilan employees. Most of the guys seem to like their jobs, they don't have many additional duties so they have a decent bit of down time....on the other hand, when the weather sucks, they are swamped. Everyone in the office says that they like their jobs though

    I had a neighbor that was weather. We were outside one day and he said, "We have about thirty minutes before it pours." There wasn't a dark cloud in the sky, but sure enough in thirty minutes it was pouring down. I was amazed.

    Tunes - when the weather sucks, how are they swamped?

    Phone calls to MOC / SF / etc, or something else I'm not thinking of?
