I would accept open general but would prefer to be garunteed air traffic control or sensor operator. I just told my recruiter that I want these two jobs and going open mechanical for six years is unacceptable. I'm hoping she will budge and get me a job or open general so I can actually enjoy my time in. What are your thoughts on this matter? I have thought about going army atc or air force reserves loadmaster. Both garunteed
If this is your attitude now, you're not going to even make it though BMT. Even though that's been sissified for all the complainers. Start to realize that nothing in the military is guaranteed. So be prepared for a nice eye awakening. But be lucky you're even in the DEP program. You do realize that the recruiting quota is so small now and it's a VERY selective process now a days right? Start appreciating that you even made it this far.
