    District Executive Interview

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks - interviewed at Boy Scouts of America.

    Interview Details

    Applied online, went to the office and interviewed three times in the following order: DFS, Field Director, then Scout Executive. Nothing too crazy, pretty laid back. The final interview with the Scout Executive seemed more like a formality and him just welcoming me to the office. Was offered a position almost immediately thereafter by phone.
