Employees held to a level of accountability to insure aircraft production was performed to a level of high quality, on schedule and at cost. Lead employees to standard performance accomplishments with positive interactions with the Team. On the work floor verification that goals were being met or changes were required. Verified safety guidelines were met.
A new career and I learned a lot. Many leadership changes generated many challenges but the opportunity to continue to serve our country was an honor. Learned much about our government and others and relished living in the international community. Budgeting, though challenging, was rewarding as it provided me a new skill set and another opportunity to develop future Analyst for the Army.
Opportunities to serve
I lived in Belgium and I lived about 50 kilometers from work. I would wake up early about 5:30 AM and 6 AM to be on time at work. Actually I would be there early so I could go to the GYM on Base and workout and take a shower before going to work. Then I would eat breakfast and make some coffee and just relax before the buzz of the day started and we opened to doors for business. I learned how to work on cars and different types of vehicles. Management was a tough nut with many rules to follow, US Military rules. My boss was a local Belgian (Actually a Netherlander or Dutchman) and he spoke 5 languages including English. Facing my boss and the big boss too because there was always a challenge at work to accomplish or some deadline to meet. The most enjoyable part of the job was helping people and fixing there problems on there cars and vehicles and seeing the smiles on their faces when the job was completed.
Yearly 3 percent increases in wages and seeing Europe and travel vacation opportunities.
The annual training which was the same as last year.
Being able to work for the government overseas in support to the soldier and their family members. Close support to the commanders in communications and provide security to the network.

Dynamic challenging environment providing voice, video and data services to NATO HQs elements in 7 different countries. Working with people from various backgrounds and cultures is a continuous adventure. You must be flexible while ensuring that services are provide with in the key performance indicators and quality performance metrics. I have learned you must have patience but still be able to maintain your ability to enforce standards and meet performance targets. Working with people and developing relationships that are genuine and trustworthy has been the most rewarding part of serving in the NATO environment.
People, culture, travel
People, self interests, keeping up with customer demand
- Upon arriving to Belgium, it is quite a culture shock compared to what we are used to in the United States. I learned how to coerce with the largely diverse group of international military personnel on a day to day basis. Such things as, adapting to their customs and way of life. The people were friendly and I made many friends and business contacts while stationed there. There were extreme challenges with procurement and contracting purchases of supplies due to the Government cutbacks and budget conflicts. But the most rewarding experience was the travelling. Europe is very beautiful and to have been able to see what I've seen while I was there, and experience all that Europe had to offer, I wouldn't change a thing.
Great travelling and culture experience
Gas was purchased in liters
Army Community Service is a superb place to work. Their primary mission/function is to help military members and their families with a broad range of services that streamline day to day living, both abroad and domestically. It feels wonderful to be able to help people. It enables both the families and the military member to work and THRIVE in environments that could otherwise be daunting. They provide help with tasks from finding childcare, eateries, locations, familiarising yourself with a locality to a broad range of social services that deal with simple and complex matters of daily living. They provide activities that enable people to become a part of the community, and not become isolated. They provide aid in difficult situations, such as unexpected emergencies or family problems. They also provide help with Permanent Change of Station activities (moving). My coworkers were the kind of people you would want to work with anywhere, anytime - all awesome! My tasks were primarily administrative, advertising, support types tasks. There really didn't seem to be a 'hardest part', the most enjoyable part was definitely dealing with all the wonderful people who came through our doors.
Budget cuts have severly downsized services.
