    Interview Details

    I walked in to recruiter's office and took the ASVAB, scored high, and enlisted. There's not much else to say about it. At the time there were "guaranteed jobs" in the USAF. That time is now over. When the economy crashed, everybody and their brother decided to join the military for a paycheck. Now they are much more picky.

    The SJA reviewed my application package, made some get-to-know-you conversation, and asked about my interest in joining. He also asked me to argue both sides of my writing sample. Some other questions related to how willing I was to work in places or on matters that I did not like.

    Negotiation Details
    The only negotiable item was location. I was provided two options, but this is sometimes negotiable depending on where you fall in the process. I took an overseas assignment, which was fantastic.

    Interview Details

    I joined while in college through ROTC before 9/11, so it was very easy joining back then. I didn't really have much of an interview. I think it's much more difficult to join now, especially with cutbacks.

    Interview Details

    there is not an interview, or there wasn't one 22 years ago when I joined. During the time frame that I joined the military it was very easy. From what I understand it is much more difficult now, mostly due to the fact that the economy is so bad.

    Took about 3 months but worth it! Start with the recruiter, then off to BMT, tech school, then your first assignment. After that, you can make your own destiny.

    Application Details

    I applied online – interviewed at US Air Force.

    Interview Details

    I participated in a phone interview with 2 colleagues- neither of which I would interact with (not HR or a manager). Answered questions about my background, interest in the role. They did not really know how to interview civilians and asked a few inappropriate questions. Once hired, when I reported to the job, there was miscommunication and they didn't know I was coming in that day.

    Interview Details

    It all starts with the Recruiters! ASVAB test scores were used to refine job possibilities. Medical screening helped further refine job choices. If you know you want a specific job get the guarantee, otherwise you fall into Air Force needs and they place you in a job which may not be what you wanted to do.

    Interview Questions
    • The 5 hour bus ride to the MEPs office for the medical screening.   Answer Question
    Negotiation Details
    There is no real negotiation except for the job you want. If the recruiter can't guarantee you a specific job you will be at the mercy and needs of the Air Force.
