I finally got in touch with the interviewer and was informed by her that she had forgotten about the interview and suggested that we just "knock out the interview" without the other interview panel members. Very unprofessional...

35M Interview

35M

I applied through a recruiter and interviewed at US Army.

Interview Details – The Hiring and Interview process is really not very complicated. The first step is to go to your local U.S. Army Recruiting Office and talk to the recruiters there. Talk to the Army National Guard Recruiter, Army Reserve Recruiter, and the Active Duty Army Recruiter. They will all want you to join their part of the organization so you just have to decide what you want and see what they have to offer you. Take the ASVAB to get a score to determine what job you are proficient for. Once you have a score you will know what jobs you can "apply" for. Pick your job, sign your papers, and you are hired!

Interview Question – The most difficult question they are going to ask you is about your criminal history. Don't lie about it because they will find out regardless. If you have no criminal history then you will have no problem.   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – I signed got a $2000 enlistment bonus plus the Student Loan Repayment Program.
