The work is essentially summarized in the title. Someone has to be in charge of flying all the air force planes, and they are the ones doing it. The Air Force has a number of specific jobs that fall under this umbrella, starting at Maintenance of remotely piloted aircraft at Maintenance of air transport planes / special missions or Aircraft hydraulic systems.

Collect all signals, images, testimonies and other information from the field, and so think about it very hard. Of course, there is tons of paperwork and your thoughts on the news determine if other people are living or dying, so no pressure or anything. (The average score is 4.2.)

It’s a computer job, but with the Coast Guard. Keep computers properly plugged in and set up new networks if necessary; you might even be called upon to have all the computers in an ocean plotter work together. And a weird note about Glassdoor for this job: IT people are less likely to recommend the Coast Guard to a friend (62% vs. 88%) than Coasties as a whole reports. (The average score is 4.2.)

7. Coast Guard Operations Specialist (4.2)

It’s one of the most ridiculed jobs, an “uber-POG” position that rarely sees the fight. But HR specialists seem content with their office work, keeping up with staff and making sure payroll is running smoothly. (Average the score is 4.2, vs a average of 3.4 for infantry).

4. Army Logistics Manager (4.2)

Glassdoor’s ratings for “Army Logistics Manager” cover a variety of jobs, primarily in the transportation industry. They drive trucks, plan routes and send convoys through enemy territory.

This is another category of scoring where the assessors came from different jobs, but these are the people who have made their way into an operations shop and are now in charge of planning missions and doing their job. ensuring teams have everything they need to be successful – engineers building new roads. to infantrymen killing bodies. (The average rating is 4.5.)

1. Coast Guard Machinery Technician (4.8)
