I applied online - interviewed at Army and Air Force Exchange in August 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
The process took 4+ weeks - interviewed at Army and Air Force Exchange in June 2012.
Interview Details – Fairly easy interview general "what would you do in this situation" questions. But this was not my 1st interview with this company. The first interview (2011) I bombed, so be prepared. The process was drawn out due to background checks(2 weeks) and orientation, fingerprinting (1 day) then training (4 weeks) which you have to pass all test over material reviewed in class. The atmosphere is uptight during the day due to the higher level managers being present and WAY more relaxed at night. I was also surprised to see the varying of age ranges on the call center floor. From early 20s to 70s. Very diverse and great mixture of wonderful people.
Interview Question – Do you have outlook experience? View Answer
Negotiation Details – The pay does vary according to experience so if you feel you should earn more put it on the table. I was entry level with no call center experience so I started @ 11/hr

Interview Details –
I spoke to recruiters at a college career fair. I was advised to apply online and received an email about 2 weeks later to come in for a 2:1 interview. About 3 weeks later, I received another email asking to come in for a panel interview. The panel interview consisted of 6 interviewers. Before the interview, however, I was given a 2-page, multiple choice test on basic accounting and company info. Definitely do your research on the company and know basic accounting information. I received an email about 3 weeks after panel interview with an offer.
I was very impressed with the company and the people. They were very professional throughout the interview process and always maintained good communication via email. Everyone I came in contact with were very nice and friendly.

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.

I applied online and the process took 3 weeks - interviewed at Army and Air Force Exchange in September 2011.
Interview Details – Initially contacted by HR Recruiter to come in for a 1:1 interview which consisted mainly of typical interview questions such as what AAFES is and what they do as well as questions what accounting courses were taken in undergrad. The second interview was a group of mainly VP's and various managers within the Finance and Accounting directorate.
Interview Question – What specific area within Finance would I want to work and why? Answer Question
I applied online and the process took 4 months - interviewed at Army and Air Force Exchange in June 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.
Interview Question – How long do you see yourself staying with us? View Answer
I applied online and the process took 2 days - interviewed at Army and Air Force Exchange in May 2010.
Interview Details – Phone screening with 2 people. They called back a couple of days later and wanted to fly me down for a final interview. This consisted of an interview with the 4 heads of each department along with the HR person who conducted the first interview. Both interviews had similar behavioral questions.
Interview Question – What do you know about AAFES? Answer Question
The process took a day - interviewed at Army and Air Force Exchange in January 2010.
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
