    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university – interviewed at US Army (Seattle, WA) in December 2012.

    Interview

    You go and see a military recruiter who then schedules you to see doctors to ensure you meet the physical and mental criteria. You also take tests to include the ASVAB and have to score above 30 some odd percent over the population. Once you pass all of the screening you will be given a chance to go into the plethora of fields in the ARMY, then you're shipped off to basic training which is tougher than most job interviews in the world. You pass that, you're then sent to a technically advanced course where you can focus on the field you chose or were chosen to go into.

    Interview Questions

    • If you opt to take the Defensive Language Aptitude Battery after scoring high enough during the ASVAB You will take a very very long language test. You will be given a very short for comprehension and then be asked a lot of questions in a made up language.   1 Answer

    Negotiation

    G.I Bill. College payback options, enlistment bonus options. Places I would like to travel to. Which foreign language I preferred to learn. How many years out of the initial 8 year enlistment contract did I want to serve on Active Duty.

    Infantry Captain Interview

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 5+ monthsinterviewed at US Army (West Point, NY).

    Interview

    I was commissioned through a service academy, rather than through a recruiter, per se. The process for admission to this 4-year college/experience is physically, mentally, and emotionally rigorous. Admission is exclusively limited to those who have been top performers during high school and early adulthood. The limitations continue as you approach commissioning upon graduation. Joining the infantry is a choice, but not an easy one to make.

    Interview Questions

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at US Army (Tulsa, OK).

    Interview

    Walk in and sign up. If you are healthy, pass the ASVAB, haven't used dugs (excessively), and haven't committed any "serious" crimes they might let you in.

    Less than 25% of 17-30 yr old US males are eligible to serve...very sad.
    It's now harder to join the US military than it is to get accepted at a 4-year state university.

    Interview Questions

    • Are you prepared to defend your country regardless of how idiotic your leaders in DC are?   1 Answer

    Ha ha!...very funny.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 10+ monthsinterviewed at US Army (West Point, NY).

    Interview

    The process of becoming an officer is pretty standardized. There are 3 ways to be commissioned in the US Army:
    1) Attend the United States Military Academy at West Point (or other service academy and transfer in some cases)
    2) Attend ROTC program on contract to join the Army at the end
    3) Attend Officer Candidate School

    There are dozens of potential "jobs" within the US Army that you will have a chance to choose/state preference for during the selection process

    Interview Questions

    • There is no "interview" per say...the most difficult thing for most people will be physical fitness. Google APFT to learn the standard and assume you need to be scoring 90pts per event as an officer (event hough 60 pts per event is "passing")   1 Answer

    Negotiation

    There is none.
