I applied through an employee referral and the process took 3 weeks - interviewed at US Air Force in October 2010.
Interview Details – The interview was package based using a number of forms and identification. This consisted of a preliminary background questionnaire, educational background, medical history, and certain agreements to be made before progressing. After that package is submitted and accepted, then we are gather together for an interview either one on one or with a board where they ask very pointed questions about your personal life and desire to serve in the military. Questions range from leadership scenarios to simply describing previous experiences that you have excelled at and why those translate into you being a good military officer.
Negotiation Details – There is not a negotiation per se. It is a black and white formula. If accepted, this is the offering of benefits and pay with promotion opportunities at specific timelines.
The process took a day - interviewed at US Air Force in August 2009.
Interview Details – To be offered a commission in the Air Force as an officer is different than enlisting in the military. First and foremost, you have to have a minimum of a 4 year bachelor degree, but it can be in various professions. The jobs available upon entry are more consistent with middle management and most times you will be responsible for a group of enlisted people who will work for you. There is an interview with a military officer who will ask various questions about your past history, to include any drug history, as you will face a background investigation for a security clearance. These days it is harder and harder to be offered a commission.
Interview Question – Questions about past drug history during college. (specifically scenarios about marijuana use) What would you do if you were riding in a friends car and they were smoking marijuana? View Answer
Negotiation Details – There isn't much to negotiate. You have to be willing to go anywhere and the pay is on a set pay scale. You can go to military.com in order to look at the pay charts. What isn't listed is the different pay for the different locations and countries, the extra pay you will receive for food and housing and any special pay and bonus you could be eligible for as well.
