    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 3+ monthsinterviewed at US Army.

    Interview

    Pretty basic and forthright. They knew they were going to hire me beforehand, which is the case with most Government jobs in this Command. The most important part of this process is your resume. You can't spend enough time perfecting it. Also, knowing someone high up in the food chain helps immensely. Remember that you can negotiate salary, so don't settle for a step 1.

    I applied through other source – interviewed at US Army (Fort Rucker, AL).

    Submitted required forms and paperwork in packet form to a selection board, who in turn made the determination if I qualified for the position. No formal interview was conducted. After the convening board received all the applicant packets by their set deadline date, they scrutinized all the packets. Then in an official military personnel (MILPER) message, approximately two months later, they published the results of who was qualified/ selected, and who was qualified/ non-selected. For the hopeful candidates that were deemed qualified/ non-selected, their packets were automatically resubmitted for the next convening board.

    • No questions were formally asked. There was a flight aptitude test that had to be taken among other things, that had technical questions, aviation and non-aviation specific questions, and two forms of psychological profiling tests included within it.   1 Answer
