Sales Associate Interview

Sales Associate
Andrews AFB, MD

I applied online and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Army and Air Force Exchange in June 2013.

Interview Details – The interview process was only about 45 minutes and they were very basic questions. I thought it was going to be harder than I thought. But I very surprised and it did not seem like this was very thorough process. I was happy and disappointed at the same time. I had hoped for better.

Finance and Accounting Management Trainee Interview

Finance and Accounting Management Trainee
Dallas, TX

I applied online - interviewed at Army and Air Force Exchange in July 2013.

Interview Details – AAFES recruiter will tell you the third interview is an Executive Interview. Not, they will pull the dullest most adversarial tools in the shop to do the interview. The Executives will not make a presence. A good indicator of this firm. The board of 5 failed to reply to even a Good Morning. After a week their IT department did not have the capability to organize the video conference, so the interview was strictly telephonic, another good indicator of what is ahead. The interview is adversarial from the start filled with questions of what are your weaknesses; and what frustrates you; and sharpshooter questions about what their Finance and Accounting department do internally. Definitely an inferior firm filled with linear borderline, inferior personnel.

Interview Question – What are your two weaknesses or setbacks?   Answer Question

Finance and Accounting Management Trainee Interview

Finance and Accounting Management Trainee
Dallas, TX

I applied through college or university and the process took 3+ weeks - interviewed at Army and Air Force Exchange in November 2011.

Interview Details – AAFES Recruiters came to campus career fair. Received e-mail request to apply for the position, approx 1 month later received invite to 1:1 interview. 3 weeks later received invite for panel interview. So far the experience has been positive... Advice: be prepared to answer questions about AAFES, plan on spending at least one to two hours researching AAFES on their website.

Interview Question – Do you plan on taking the CPA exam.   View Answer

Information Technology Intern Interview

Information Technology Intern
Dallas, TX

I applied online and the process took 4 months - interviewed at Army and Air Force Exchange in May 2011.

Interview Details – Online Application was fairly straight forward, though it did include questions that were specific to an employer that has a number of former military members applying. The worst part of the whole process was waiting, as there was 3 months between my submission of the application and the first contact. After that first contact though, the interview process was painless and engaging. The group conducting the interview consisted of the outgoing VP of Information Technology, the incoming VP, and the heads of the security, operational, development, and infrastructure departments. The office looked kind of like a cubical farm, but based on what I saw personalization was welcome. Co-workers were friendly and social with each other.

Global Sourcing Interview

Global Sourcing
Dallas, TX

The process took a day - interviewed at Army and Air Force Exchange in June 2009.

Interview Details – Approx. six weeks after submitting on line application I received an email from hiring manager for appointment time. I should have asked who would be present at the interview instead of taking the email verbatium. Group interview consisted of hiring manager and 2 of his direct reports. It was an informational interview trying to see if your skill sets aligned with the needs of the job. The two directs never asked a question and seemed bored. The hiring manager was outgoing and was candid in his remarks about the job and it's requirements. There is a filter system in the HR function, those resumes go forward that meet criteria. Inside information was that there was 129 applicants this management postion. Over 30 met requriements. Hiring manager and committee select next step for the interview. I came with a written plan, dont'. This is not a visionary group, they want fit for the position. Listen and provide support to the hiring managers needs. I did not make the second round as my product background was not as strong as the person they hired.

Interview Question – Was I aware that this postion may be required to live in China.   View Answer
