I applied through an employee referral. The process took 6+ months. I interviewed at US Air Force (Oklahoma City, OK) in January 2014.
Was called via Telephone from a 2-star General Officer and asked a few personal questions not appropriate for commercial asking (what do you think about coming to base X, how will your wife feel, do your children think they will like going to base x). It was followed by an in-person interview.
- There were integrity and process questions 1 Answer

I applied online. The process took 6+ weeks. I interviewed at US Air Force (Washington, DC) in September 2010.
Vacancy posted on web, I submitted a package by the posted deadline. I received an interview notification from HR within 6 business days of job close-out. I traveled to Washington, DC three weeks later and met a board of 7 senior members of the organization. Five business days after the interview, I received an informal phone call from the hiring manager (Commander) offering me the position.
- There were no unexpected questions; no technical or detailed questions. The board asked standard, leadership/management and philosophical questions as well as a few, "tell us about a time when..." type questions. 1 Answer
I was able to negotiate my report date. Military pay and benefits are based upon a standard scale and are non-negotiable. They are also available to anyone interested on annual military pay charts. Investment and personal retirement planning is also standard. Health benefits are standard.
