Defense Travel Systems Administrator Interview

Defense Travel Systems Administrator

I applied through other source and the process took 2 days - interviewed at US Army in January 2013.

Interview Details – There is little to no interviewing that goes on in the military. If the leadership decides that you are best fit for a position, that will become your new job. This means that the judgement of senior leaders determines the quality of the workers. There isnt really much else to say other than the fact that I was forced into a job that required me to work for people who were less qualified than myself.

Interview Question – There were no questions involved in their decision   Answer Question
