    E9 AF Assignments OS

    Advertisements
    How do E9 overseas listing works?

    Is it exactly the same like other ranks?

    I heard they only have the listing like once or twice a year? Is that correct? If so, what months do they come out?

    Do Chiefs only pcs in the summertime?

    For AF assignments. TIA.

    You PCS when an assignment is opened. IT can be all year round. We have hand people PCS Spring, Fall, Winter.

    I know in our career field, there are limit chief slots and can be open to who is wanted. If you are opened, you will go.

    So there's no overseas cycle like other ranks? Do open assignments can be seen any time of the year?

    Thanks again.

    There is a list just like other ranks; but, it comes out a few times of the year. It is based on the DEROS and where the need is just like other ranks.

    Hubby's boss just made the Chief listing. He has been at our base for 9 months. They are looking at overseas and 2 state side bases to send him because we have our slots filled. Honestly, once you get there, there is so little control over where you go it isn't even funny.

    There's a list but a lot of jobs are chosen by the chief's group. It's very political, at least at our base it is. Some of our friends applied for like 10 different jobs. Really you have to be hired into most jobs and no real list exists. Also they can be "fired". Saw three chiefs "fired" at Aviano because they couldn't hack the job.
