    Former Employee - Integrated Avionics Technician in Moffett Field, CA

    Positive Outlook
    Approves of CEO

    I worked at Air National Guard full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Perfect job for someone who loves working with Aviation, Electronics, use their hands to work with while having a good balance with some office computer/documentation job that will give you a bit of break from the Flightline. Great comradery. Lots of leave, sick days, vacation (30 day/year total), plus paid federal holidays. You work much less on average than a typical employee in other companies doing similar type of job

    Cons

    The job can be stressful, you have to be in the Air National Guard (military) so you are expected to come on one weekend a month for a military duty which makes a 12 working days in a row once a month. Good old boys club can be prevelant, its military afterall
