Be the One to Change the World

We are
Civilian Strong

Fairchild Air Force Base is the largest refueling base in the world. Home to the nation’s premiere air refueling team, we provide agile combat support across the full range of military operations.

But did you know it takes hundreds of civilians to keep Fairchild Air Force Base powerful and effective? We are more than 700 strong.

Working shoulder to shoulder with the men and women in uniform, we are a force to be reckoned with—keeping Fairchild ready for action, ready for anything.

Play with the best

As civilian employees, we are a part of a worldwide network. We can apply for opportunities close to home or on the other side of the world.

We are from all backgrounds and all walks of life. We serve with passion and dedication. We invest our energy and skills to support the Air Force mission around the world in air, space, and cyberspace. From refueling jets to rocket science and everything in between, our contributions as civilians are vital.

All in the service of keeping America safe and secure.

Career

Work Life Balance

Be part of the team

As part of Team Fairchild, we expect you to “work to live” not “live to work.” Maintaining a balance between your professional and personal responsibilities is vital to your happiness and your professional success. You may have opportunities for work schedules that are not only predictable, but flexible. A 40-hour workweek may be the norm, but it doesn’t always have to be 9 to 5.

Civilian Career

The perfect Job is the one that makes you happy!

Start your Career

As a Fairchild civilian employee, you will enjoy the peace of mind that comes from knowing that, if an emergency arises, there are flexibilities to allow you to take time to handle your personal and family needs. Personal and family leave are parts of the generous overall leave package you will enjoy that includes holidays, vacation, and sick time. And you can even save up unused sick leave for unforeseen emergencies.

Fairchild takes care of its people. We want you to enjoy a long and prosperous career with us, so we do what it takes to keep a positive balance between life and work.

Career

Federal Benefits

Create a Strong Future

Most federal careers are renowned for their exceptional employment benefits, and a civilian career at Fairchild is no different. Our health insurance program is a nationally recognized model that offers you choice and flexibility, as well as a substantial employer contribution to premiums, and your share of out-of-pocket costs can be paid with pretax dollars.

Plan for Retirement

You will also be able to choose among several options for life insurance coverage for both you and your family and have the option to participate in the largest group long-term care insurance program in the country.
Our three-part retirement program includes a Social Security benefit, a 401(k)-type plan, and a defined benefit component based on years of employment and salary history.
All of these benefits are what we call “portable,” meaning that whatever benefits you accrue with us will transfer to other federal agencies if you decide to leave Fairchild. Furthermore, if your career choices take you to the private sector, those benefits will largely remain intact should you return to employment with AFCS or any other federal agency.

Not all positions include benefits, it will depend on the job of your choice.
