I worked as a kitchen hand and a steward in the kitchen dining room. I learned how to cater for large groups of people. I had no problems with the management, and the workplace culture was work, family fun. Hardest part of job was leaving, Most enjoyable was meeting lots of interesting people.
Pros
Good salary, free food, good people, easy PRKING.

Leaving

Job Culture
A typical day at work involves building data on excel, maintaining appraisal reports for personnel, electronic record keeping, catering, SAP.

The team I work with are hard working, cheeky, supportive and fun to work with. We are encouraged to meet deadlines and are offered support if we are unable to.


Our director encourages a work life balance as do our senior officers through out the organisation.


Personal and professional development are encouraged.


Gym time is also encouraged, lunch time sports and any form of physical activity is encouraged.


I guess the hardest part of the job is building data for promotion boards running back to back.


The most enjoyable part of the job really, is the people.
Pros
Lunch time physical training, Kapa Haka, the people, the fact that family really does come first.
Cons
The distance I have to travel to get to work.

This was a highlight of my working career. I spent 6 years learning my trade from professionals that had a great deal of passion about what they did.

No two days were the same and the work that was being undertaken was challenging every day. Being in aviation there was no room for error and the quality control measures where as strict as they had to be for good measure.


For a person looking to advance their technical knowledge or even learn a new trade skill the Air Force is the place to be. There are so many opportunities to learn various skills from various trades allowing personnel to become extremely skilled and highly sought after in the work force.
Pros
Great working environment
Cons
Pay not on the same rate as civilian equivalent

Job Culture
The daily working routine started 0745 hrs Mon-Fri, with two 20 min breaks and one 45 min lunch break. Throughout my time at Logistics Support Squadron I progressed through 3 rank levels and was responsible for up to 10 subordinates. The Organizational Structure was a Pyramid structure as is common in the Military, which has some disadvantages with regards to communication flow and decision making speed from the chain of comand. Generally, my co workers were co-operative and friendly. I enjoyed the respect of my peers and superiors and my suggestions were always well received. The hardest part of the job was initiating change of systems and proceedures as the approval process was inhibited by the organisational structure which does not promote confident decision making. However, this is mitigated through the presentation of detailed plans that outline risks and benefits and sound strategies. The most satisfying part of the job included successful problem solving and the implimentation of robust system that promote productivity in the workplace.
Pros
great benefits, worldwide travel, advancement opportunities, constant training and professional improvement opportunities, free education
Cons
on call 24/7. risks associated with operational war theatres.
