Work-Life Balance

As part of AFCS, 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 will experience work schedules that are not only predictable, but flexible. A 40-hour workweek is the norm, but it doesn’t always have to be 9 to 5.

You will experience work schedules that are not only predictable, but flexible. A 40-hour workweek is the norm, but it doesn’t always have to be 9 to 5.

As an Air Force civilian, you will enjoy the peace of mind that comes from knowing that, if an emergency arises, we will be flexible in letting you take time to handle your personal and family needs. Personal and family leave is part 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.

As part of AFCS, you will likely find yourself working on, or near, an Air Force installation, either in the U.S. or at locations around the world. Each Air Force installation is like a small town. It is a self-contained community providing every kind of service: child care, shopping, entertainment, recreation, and more. You will quickly see how close-knit our communities are. Air Force civilians often talk of the “sense of family” that they feel working on base. People look out for one another, and they offer support, encouragement, and friendship. Most bases have recreation areas, ball fields and courts, and state-of-the-art fitness facilities. Plus, many bases encourage team members to spend up to three hours a week in some form of fitness activity…on the clock!

AFCS 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.

Federal Benefits

Federal careers are renowned for their exceptional employment benefits, and a career with AFCS 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.

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 AFCS. 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.

Individuals with Disabilities

The Air Force Civilian Service (AFCS) hires individuals in nearly all occupational areas and provides numerous opportunities for employment. If you are eligible and qualified, you can apply for available positions. If you are a person with an intellectual disability, a severe physical disability, or a psychiatric disability, you have an additional avenue you can pursue: a Schedule A special hiring authority.

The Schedule A authority, specifically 5 CFR 213.3102(u), enables AFCS to hire an eligible person in a more direct and stream-lined manner. To be eligible for Schedule A, you must provide a "proof of disability" letter stating that you have an intellectual disability, severe physical disability, or psychiatric disability. You can get this letter from your doctor, a licensed medical professional, a licensed vocational rehabilitation specialist, or any federal, state, or local agency that issues or provides disability benefits. You can see sample letters by clicking on this link, https://www.opm.gov/policy-data-oversight/disability-employment/getting-a-job/sampleschedaletters.pdf.

In addition to having the proof of disability letter, you must meet the qualification requirements, and must be able to perform the essential duties of the job with or without reasonable accommodation. You will need to provide a resume, transcripts if your education qualifies you for the position(s) you're seeking. You will be able to provide this information and will be able to indicate the occupational areas and Air Force installations where you are interested in working by accessing the Schedule A application process at :

Once you complete your application online the Civilian Personnel Sections (CPS) will have your application package to verify elibility and be able to share your resume with hiring managers who have vacancies for which you qualify.

Great News for
Military Spouses

THE CIVILIAN SPOUSE OF AN ACTIVE DUTY AIRMAN MAY BE ELIGIBLE FOR CIVILIAN EMPLOYMENT WITH AFCS.

The hiring process for military spouses is simple and streamlined. Military spouses can receive priority placement directly when they apply for positions through USAJOBS.gov.

Military spouses are no longer required to go to the local Civilian Personnel Section (CPS) to register for the Priority Placement Program to exercise their preference for hiring. Beginning April 1, 2019, in lieu of registration, military spouses can exercise their priority placement preference by applying for vacancies of their choosing on USAJOBS.gov. Current enrollees should have received notification regarding their registration in the Department of Defense (DoD) Priority Placement Program (PPP) and future changes to the program.

Military spouses who meet the best qualified standard are referred to the hiring manager with preference and can also be invited to participate in an interview, when applicable. Ultimately, this change standardizes military spouse procedures, simplifies the employment process, and empowers military spouses to exercise their preference selectively.

When submitting an application, military spouses must complete the Military Spouse PPP Self-Certification checklist from the Defense Civilian Personnel Advisory Service website. This form must be submitted each time you apply to a DoD position on USAJOBS.gov in order to receive military spouse preference. Click HERE to find this form.

For more information on how to exercise your preference when applying for a job, please view this WEBSITE or contact the local CPS.

To ensure compliance with an applicable preliminary nationwide injunction, which may be supplemented, modified, or vacated, depending on the course of ongoing litigation, the Federal Government will take no action to implement or enforce the COVID-19 vaccination requirement pursuant to Executive Order 14043 on Requiring Coronavirus Disease 2019 Vaccination for Federal Employees. Therefore, to the extent a Federal job announcement includes the requirement that applicants must be fully vaccinated against COVID-19 pursuant to E.O. 14043, that requirement does not currently apply. Federal agencies may request information regarding the vaccination status of selected applicants for the purposes of implementing other workplace safety protocols, such as protocols related to masking, physical distancing, testing, travel, and quarantine.
