Many NCOs transition into civilian careers as maintenance supervisors. The duties of non-commissioned officers in the military are very similar to a maintenance supervisor in the civilian world. A key similarity is that both the NCO and the Maintenance Supervisor are managing a team to produce a specific result, improve a process and/or keep equipment functioning. The main difference is the type of equipment that the supervisor is monitoring is for civilian purposes rather than war fighting/defense.
