    Business Analyst Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Dallas, TX
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Dallas, TX
    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 6+ monthsinterviewed at Army and Air Force Exchange.

    Interview Details

    I heard about the job at a job fair. I received a phone interview first. Then I was asked to come to headquarters for a panel interview by senior management. I was accepted into the AAFES version of "Apprentice". Before getting placed in the company the trainee has to successfully make 2 presentations in front of the senior VP's (CFO).If successful each trainee is placed in the company based on needs and trainee strengths and weaknesses.

    Interview Questions
    • The most unexpected part of the hiring process was the test given right before the panel interview.   View Answer
    Negotiation Details
    It's structured like the government so there isn't really a negotiation phase. HR has to adhere to government regulation when deciding on your pay. Licenses, degrees, and experience, are considered when setting your initial offer. There are salary ranges and expect to come in at the bottom of the range. Expect them to push the benefits available to employees and veteran employees. The retirement and medical is a plus. Also, employees accrue leave time from initial date of hire, although while going through the training program leave is not highly frowned up on.

    Finance and Accounting Management Trainee Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Dallas, TX
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Dallas, TX
    Application Details

    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.

    Customer Service Agent Interview

    Application Details

    The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at Army and Air Force Exchange in January 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.

    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

    Finance and Accounting Management Trainee Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Dallas, TX
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Dallas, TX
    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2+ monthsinterviewed at Army and Air Force Exchange in November 2011.

    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.

    Information Technology Intern Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Dallas, TX
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Dallas, TX
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 4+ monthsinterviewed 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.
