Abstract : Survey results are based on responses from 61% of the assigned personnel holding DAFSC 304X0. Seventy-one percent of the respondents in the survey sample indicated finding their jobs at least fairly interesting, with an upward progression in positive job interest as skill level and experience increased. In terms of perceived utilization of talents and training 76% of the total sample felt that their talents and training were being utilized at least fairly well. This general positive trend was found across all skill levels and enlistment groups. Reenlistment intentions of survey respondents in their first enlistment matched the actual reenlistment figures for FY 75 (32%). For second enlistment and career personnel, the actual reenlistment rates were somewhat higher than expressed intentions of the survey sample. Task performance in terms of DAFSC groups follows a typical progression, with 5-skill level airmen involved primarily with technical tasks, 7-skill level incumbents accomplishing both technical and supervisory tasks, and 9-skill level personnel performing mostly supervisory tasks. This trend is also found across AFMS groups, with an increase in supervisory tasks and a decrease in technical tasks being a function of time in the career field.
