Program Manager Interview

Program Manager
Los Angeles, CA

I applied through other source and the process took 2 months - interviewed at US Air Force in February 2012.

Interview Details – Military here, so no formal interview processes. I networked within the organization to see who was the most undermanned department doing something tolerable. After that I repeatedly met with higher ranking personnel until I found one with the authority to authorize a move. The decision makers at LA AFB are spineless bureaucrats more interested in playing CYA and personal advancement games. Figure out how to stroke their ego and you can make them do anything.

Negotiation Details – Negotiations were getting the job, as military everything else is already determined

The process took a day - interviewed at US Air Force in September 2009.

Interview Details – The Air Force typically posts its job openings on an electronic bulletin board available only to those who are already in the Air Force. One can apply for positions via this electronic bulletin board; only some of the positions require a face-to-face interview. One can initiate an interview be calling the senior executive of the office to which the desired position belongs; one can also call a neutral career manager to mitigate the process.

Interview Question – Why are you the best candidate for this position?   Answer Question
