    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at US Army.

    Interview

    You find the nearest recruitment center. Go in, complete a practice ASVAB. They'll get an idea. Then they'll take you for the actual ASVAB. If you do well enough they'll tell you want jobs are available. Best to apply at the beginning of a Fiscal year I believe (Oct.).

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at US Army (Omaha, NE).

    Interview

    I had a buddy that asked if I wanted to do the buddy system. We both went through the same recruiter and went to take a tests together. We did physicals and then she ended up being pregnant. Because I had already signed, I flew solo from there. The recruiters were very pushy when it came to picking my MOS in a hurry. I really wanted PsyOps and they said there was no openings. I ended taking a large sign in bonus to be a food service worker. Which was awful, I didn't know how to cook, so this was interesting. Overall, I wish I had gone PsyOps. But no regrets, as I met my husband in Germany and enjoy my family and where we've been through the military. Just don't let them fool you or trick you or butter you up to be something less. That's my advice.

    Interview Questions

    • Many recruiters will try to get you signed up first thing, but make sure you take a while and determine it's right for you. Maybe an alternate branch will have the same job, but the quality of living will be better or they may be able to provide you close to home or where you want to be located. Don't give in to them hurrying you up to make a choice.   Answer Question
