    Interview Details

    The process was conducted mainly through recruiters. Eventually, for an OCS contract, you will be interviewed by a board consisting of (in my case) one Major and three Captains. They will proceed to ask you general interview questions pertaining to your work ethic, management abilities, how to deal with conflict, etc. Nothing very difficult.

    Interview Questions
    • They will ask you about any discrepencies in your past and how you would deal with a soldier who was in a similar situation.   Answer Question

    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took 6 weeksinterviewed at US Army.

    Interview Details

    Started in college in ROTC. The Army ROTC campus personnel interviewed me, checked my grades, and explained what the army offered. I did not recieve my commision until I finished basic training, ROTC campus classes, and advance camp (now known as Warrior Forge). Even completion of ROTC does not ensure you are commisioned, you will also be subject to a background investigation and must complete your degree.

    Following commisioning a new officer must complete their Officer basic courses prior to going into the field as an army officer.

    Interview Questions
    • ROTC is a process and not just a series of interviews. A cadet will be faced with a number of leadship tests and trials that will be evaluated. Many of these are done in the field during training.   Answer Question
    Negotiation Details
    No negotiation. It's the Army.
