I applied through a recruiter and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at US Army.

Interview Details – ASVAB- Armed Services Vocational Aptitude Battery test. You take this test when you go to MEPS, before you join the Army. Depending on your scores, the Army will let you know what it is that you are qualified to do. You will know what job/MOS (Military Occupational Specialty) you will be going into before you join. If you are promised ANYTHING by the recruiter, ensure that it is in your contract. If it isn't,get it put on there **BEFORE** you sign anything.

Interview Question – The ASVAB is a General Aptitude test, you can study for it. You can find those resources at just about any bookstore.   Answer Question

Computer Engineer Interview

Anonymous Employee

I applied online and the process took a day - interviewed at US Army.

Interview Details – Interviewing was quite easy. You meet with a handful of managers where questions are usually very non-technical. Most technical work is done by contractors, so they usually look for leadership capabilities.

Interview Question – Sometimes, there will be a manager/technical lead asking for a specific technical skill. But don't fret if you don't have the particular skill. The reason for this is because the managers eventually divide the pool of hires amongst themselves and are just getting a feel for who would be a good fit. Leadership capabilities is what they are generally mostly looking for so always fall back on that.   Answer Question

Cavalry Scout Interview

Danville, KY

I applied through a recruiter and the process took 4+ weeks - interviewed at US Army.

Interview Details – Just going to a local MEPS station, conducting your physical and filling out a lot of paperwork. Once everything is said and done it is a very easy process to continue and get into the service. Be in decent shape before talking to a recruiter, so you can enter the service in better physical shape than most.

Interview Question – Are you sure you want to join?   Answer Question
