Depending on what shift you are own depends on the time of day you have to be at work…usually starts with roll call and then you are assigned your duties.. I’ve learned a lot being on the flight-line and have turned my mechanical skills to the best of my abilities while I was working for the USAF. Management was cooperative to a point . Co-workers were entertaining because we did whatever we could to keep our moral up during the long work days. The hardest part of the job was the time constraints to have broken jets fixed for flights in the next 4 hrs. The enjoyable part of the job is knowing that you are apart of something a small cog in a machine to a ever grown field.
