    US Army Officer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Great Lakes, IL

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at US Army (Great Lakes, IL) in July 2015.

    Interview

    There is a long application packet. People make it out to seem harder than it is but it is really just paperwork. You will need a reference for every place you have lived and worked. You need three letters of recommendation. If your relatives were born in a different country you will need either their citizenship document or copies of their green cards. You will need to write a personal statement. It's good to be honest, just don't put "I want to do this for the benefits or the pay." Once your packet is in you will have to go to MEPS (Military Entrance Processing Station). Here they will check your hearing, vision, blood and give you a drug test. It is best to not say much and answer no to pretty much everything. Saying yes to something will extend your process. They will also make you do some physical maneuvers in your underwear so wear something less revealing. You have to run two miles under 18 minutes, do at least 18 pushups in two minutes and 60 crunches in two minutes. If you are overweight (depending on your height and age) you may still go through with your BMI. Your recruiter is supposed to give you a ride everywhere you need to go. They should not be texting you after 6pm. Especially if you are a female and your recruiter is a male, you should never be alone with your recruiter of the opposite sex for extended periods of time or for meetings. The board will basically ask you why you want to do this. It's OK to reiterate your personal statement. It is good to relax and be yourself but maintain professionalism. If you don't say much they will ask you more questions from the list. They will ask about your previous leadership experiences. They will ask what job you want and why.
