Interview Details – I completed my Platoon Leader time and was informed I was under consideration for either a position in the S-4 (Logistics) office or a Company Executive Officer (XO) position. I was asked which position I felt my strengths would better lend to and which I would prefer. Once I provided my answer I was given a timeline for my assumption of the new position.

Infantryman Interview

Infantryman
Port Orchard, WA

I applied through a recruiter and interviewed at US Army.

Interview Details – MEPS was poorly coordinated, which should have been a first clue about this organization. The recruiter was straight forward and told me exactly what I was getting into. He recommended signing a shorter contract, but I declined. He got me the Airborne school slot that I wanted, as well as a RIP slot. He also managed to get me a rather high signing bonus ($36,000; $20,000 'quick ship' and $16,000 'MOS') back in 2007.

Interview Question – There was nothing difficult about enlisting. The only thing that I can think of that others might have slight problems with is picking a job that they want to do; but if you're going into a new career, you should have a good idea.   Answer Question

Very Difficult Interview

E6 - Army - Staff Sergeant Interview

E6 - Army - Staff Sergeant
Seattle, WA

I applied through college or university - interviewed at US Army in December 2012.

Interview Details – You go and see a military recruiter who then schedules you to see doctors to ensure you meet the physical and mental criteria. You also take tests to include the ASVAB and have to score above 30 some odd percent over the population. Once you pass all of the screening you will be given a chance to go into the plethora of fields in the ARMY, then you're shipped off to basic training which is tougher than most job interviews in the world. You pass that, you're then sent to a technically advanced course where you can focus on the field you chose or were chosen to go into.

Interview Question – If you opt to take the Defensive Language Aptitude Battery after scoring high enough during the ASVAB You will take a very very long language test. You will be given a very short for comprehension and then be asked a lot of questions in a made up language.   View Answer

Negotiation Details – G.I Bill. College payback options, enlistment bonus options. Places I would like to travel to. Which foreign language I preferred to learn. How many years out of the initial 8 year enlistment contract did I want to serve on Active Duty.
