Flight Lieutenant (Former Employee) – Australia and overseas – 17 September 2017
In the RAAF or Defence Forces there isn't really a typical day at work. You go to your place of work knowing there are certain tasks to perform with the expectation that things could change at anytime during that day.
Things I learnt were, teamwork, acceptance of authority, how to question authority, diligence, integrity, trust, time management and foreseeing obstacles and what needs to be done next.
The ranking structure of the RAAF gave clear guidance and career structure which enhanced the workplace culture of achieving the goals that were set by those in leadership.
Sometimes some of the tasks that were set weren't what I would call necessary but they were character building.
It was always enjoyable when you had achieved the objective.
The Royal Australian Air Force is a respected employer and rightly so, it follows the guidelines provided by legislation to an absolute value. However, that doesn't necessarily mean you get to work for the best people. In fact, you'd be surprised by the people who actually 'get in' and 'stay in' since it's literally the safest job in the world. Sadly, those who get promoted are not necessarily the best at what they do, rather they know who to rub the right way, or they know someone who knows someone. Staff-in-confidence is a joke in the RAAF, so be careful who you tell what. It's a smaller organization than you think, and you can count on being ousted if you do not fit the culture of your chosen mustering or specialization. If you can play the game, and you can work the system, the RAAF is your best friend. However, if you're a round peg going into a square hole, you won't get far in this organization.
