    Division Chief Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Tampa, FL
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Tampa, FL
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at SOCOM in February 2010.

    Interview Details

    Submit application online, fill out a questionairre, then I was offered an interview time. The interview started with another 7-question list for me answer in 25 minutes or less - plus sell myself to the panel of three managers. It was rushed, stilted, had very limited give and take (I basically talked for 24 minutes to address all 7 questions). Overall it was unprofessional and useless. It was quite clear a candidate had already been picked and the interviews were just a necessarily step to give credibility to the process (when there wasn't any).
