    Infantryman Interview

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter – interviewed at US Army (Port Orchard, WA).

    Interview

    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 Questions

    • 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

    E6 - Army - Staff Sergeant Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Seattle, WA
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university – interviewed at US Army (Seattle, WA) in December 2012.

    Interview

    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 Questions

    • 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.   1 Answer

    Negotiation

    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.

    Human Resources Specialist Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Fort Lewis, WA
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ monthsinterviewed at US Army (Fort Lewis, WA) in May 2012.

    Interview

    All job applications are accepted only through USJobs.Gov now. I was working overseas and was told by email I had 3 days to accept the position or I could decline. So technically I did not even interview for the job. However, that is not the norm, most interviews are done over the phone for initial contact. Even then a manager can hire you outright if your resume is strong and you have hiring points (Vet, Spousal Pref, Disabilty). Most likely they will want to have you come in for a second interview unless it is in a geographically distant place. From my experience, you are more likely to get hired if the job requires relocating. Note: many Government jobs are open to local commute only.

    Interview Questions

    • Most Government position are locked in a certain paygrade and step, so you know what you are getting before the interview. Once you factor in locality pay for the job, you pretty much know what you are getting. However for new hires or certain jobs such as Medical and Senior Executive Services, there are bonuses and pay negoiating. The hardest thing is knowing what the agency is WILLING to pay and what you want to be paid.   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    Impartial. Over email.

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 6+ monthsinterviewed at US Army (Tacoma, WA) in May 2011.

    Interview

    There is none. If someone wants to join the United States Army, they would go online and search for the nearest recruiting station. After that they would go to the recruiting station and talk to an Army recruiter and fill out a bunch of paperwork. Following that they would schedule and appointment to go to the nearest military entrance processing station (MEPS). At MEPS is where most future soldiers get to pick their job in the military.
