    Find your local US ARMED FORCES RECRUITING station walk in and prepare to be ignored, with the draw down now you're most likely not gonna get in. You're either some kid flunking high school or a hoodlum. But if you're so lucky to get past the initial screening get ready for a boatload of paper work. Go to Michaels and have a stamp of your initials and signature made because you'll be using it often.

    E6 - Army - Staff Sergeant Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Application Details

    The process took a dayinterviewed at US Army.

    Interview Details

    The board to be promoted to Staff Sergeant can be as difficult as your leadership allows it to be. It is designed to test the knowledge and capability of the leader, and, depending on leadership, test the leader on how they personally handle stress. From my experience as a scout, my boards have been lengthy processes. Though most of it was focused on my knowledge in my MOS, a good amount of the time was spent heckling and harassing me to see if I would break.

    US Army Soldier Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Phoenix, AZ
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Phoenix, AZ
    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3 daysinterviewed at US Army.

    Interview Details

    Complete the ASVAB, then speak to a recruiter but be knowledgeable about the opportunities available. Walk in the door armed with that knowledge and have an idea of what you want to do in the military. Don't expect that the recruiter is going to be completely open and present you with the "perfect job." There may be jobs that offer bonuses but they may not necessarily be the right fit for you. Don't accept it just because it offers a bonus, look for what will be interesting and satisfying. If you have education bring your transcripts and ensure that you get credit for that education. More education means higher rank and pay! If you have JROTC make sure to mention that as well for the same reason. There are hundreds of options available and you don't have to be a "hard charger" to necessarily fit into the Army. Also, start working on your pushups, situps, and 2 mile run time early, it will pay off for you in Basic Combat Training and Advanced Individual Training!
