    Application Details

    I applied in-person - interviewed at US Army in September 2013.

    Interview Details

    You apply online through a database that sorts through applicants for specific experience. I was then put throught a board of reviewers that grade you based on the actual position requirements in comparison to years of experience. Following I am interviewed by 3 individuals with a series of questions. Final interview was with the General Officer I would have to work for.

    Negotiation Details
    It was fairly easy. Because I was already in the system, there is a percentage increase within the alloted pay bracket that I was able to increase. No other options were available because of the limits of hiring actions for the government at the time.

    There is no process. Just take the required test and tell the recruiter you want in, they will get you in. This block has a word minimum, so I am just going to type in a few more words until I hit the minimum so that I can use the full features of this site.

    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter - interviewed at US Army.

    Interview Details

    The hardest part about flight school is just getting in. Don't take no for an answer. If one person will not help you, find another. Keep trying until you have papers in hand that say you are disqualified for sure. Once you are accepted, just study hard and you will make it. Set career goals early and stick with them. Take care of your own career. The army will use you for their purposes so you must watch out for your own interests. If you want to do well on the AFAST test, answer like you love to do anything as a team or to help someone else.

    Interview Details

    According to the email response I received, my experience in the Army made me ineligible for a position in DLA as an IT Specialist in management. With all my other management experience, they decided not to conduct the interview. I got the impression they had someone else in mind well before I was scheduled for the interview.

    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
