    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 4+ weeks - interviewed at US Army in May 2010.

    Interview Details

    I beleive is the easiest interview. No need for experience or to tell anyone about yourself. Simply go to any recruiting station and the recruiter will do the rest. I believe this could be the only job were you can show up to the "interview" without being sure that you want to work there and the recruiter will do everything possible to convince you that you do.

    I applied in-person - interviewed at US Army in July 2010.

    The army requires you to be physically fit. This is the most difficult part of the hiring process for most people. You take an aptitude assessment and chose your job based on score. A low score on this assessment severely limits your number of choices. You complete many forms and a physical exam and if you meet most qualifications, you are allowed to go to basic training to begin your career.
