    Company Commander Interview

    Interview Details

    The hiring process differs in the Army compared to the civilian sector. Company Command is a necessity in order to advance to the next rank within the basic branches. Too often BN commanders evaluate the candidates based on their OERs, reputation, past performance, physical fitness, and year group. If a opening is available the candidate who is next in the seat, more often than not, will be selected. Once I was selected the BN Commander called me in his office for a basic meet and greet followed by a 3-mile run and 30 minute gym session the next mooring. He basically tested if I possessed the physical and mental fitness to lead his Soldiers.

    No interview process for most units. A common trend among Brigade Commanders (the leader who selects Company Commanders) is to have them first serve on the Brigade staff when they arrive to a unit out of their Captain's Career Course. There they will be assessed and selected for Command

    Application Details

    The process took 5 days - interviewed at US Army in February 2010.

    Interview Details

    This interview was to be selected for a company commander slot within an Aviation Brigade. The prescreening involved the ability to achieve Pilot-in-Command status. This process took several months but if you can build a solid reputation as a quality staff officer and comptent pilot with ability to make time to fly and boss who will support this then you will be ready to set up the interview. The interview with the Brigade Commander focus on leadship questions and general familiarity with ARs and SOPs.
