Very Easy Interview

Financial Management Trainee Interview

Anonymous Employee
Dallas, TX

I applied through an employee referral and the process took 6 weeks - interviewed at Army and Air Force Exchange in November 2010.

Interview Details – Two rounds of interviews; the first round was with the 2 coordinators of the management training program, and if you made it to the next round, you would interview with an executive panel of 5-6 senior managers.

Interview Question – Nothing difficult or unexpected at all, they were all textbook questions that everybody hates... "Tell me your biggest weakness," and "Why do you feel you are the best fit for this job?" -- BORING!   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – NO negotiations - HA! Take it or leave it.

Cashier Interview

Anonymous Employee
Fort Bragg, NC

I applied online and the process took 1+ week - interviewed at Army and Air Force Exchange.

Interview Details – You create a profile and apply online, then if selected, they'll call you for an interview. You conduct the interview in the HR building and then they will get back to you or hire you on the spot. I got hired on the spot and started training on the following Monday. Training lasted for about two weeks if I remember correctly, then I started my job. I also got paid for training, so that was pretty awesome.

Interview Question – All the questions were really easy!   Answer Question

Difficult Interview

Business Analyst Interview

Business Analyst
Dallas, TX

I applied through a recruiter and the process took 6 months - interviewed 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 Question – 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.
