Commandant Interview (Positive Experience; Average Interview)
I applied online and the process took 6+ weeks - interviewed at US Air Force in September 2010.
Interview Details – 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.
Interview Question – 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. View Answer
Negotiation Details – 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.
