    Client Systems Technician Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Troy, OH
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. I interviewed at US Air Force (Troy, OH).

    Interview

    For the Air Force, the interview process is different from the normal interview of a company. They will ask personal questions to verify your eligibility for enlistment. The most personal questions will be through MEPS, after the initial interview. You will also have to complete the ASVAB to figure out what jobs you qualify for. Your recruiter will help you with this. They are here for you, and if they can find a way to enlist you, they will.

    Interview Questions

    • What kind of positions are you interested in? Is there a particular job you are interested in? How old are you? What is your GPA? Have you graduated high school (if so, from where)? Are you married? Kids? What are your future goals? Are you currently working? Who is your employer? Do you have any college degrees or certs? Have you ever been arrested for a felony or for substance abuse? Have you ever taken drugs, if so, what? Do you have tattoos? Those are the top questions I remember.

      If you have not graduated high school, they do have programs for you.   1 Answer

    Contract Specialist (Copper Cap) Interview

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at US Air Force (Dayton, OH) in June 2015.

    Interview

    As far as I know, there is usually only one interview administered for this position. Mine was a panel interview with four people, who were given scripted questions to ask. No one deviated from the questions as they were written, and very little response is given to answers. I walked out of this interview thinking I had bombed it because the interviewers were so stoic the whole time. They told me I would find out within two weeks whether I had been placed on the "to be hired when we have allocations" list, and a week later I was called an offered a job.

    Malware Analyst Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Wright Patterson AFB, OH
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took a week. I interviewed at US Air Force (Wright Patterson AFB, OH) in January 2011.

    Interview

    Since the position was a Direct Hire, I did not have to go through the normal process of applying through USAJobs which can sometimes be confusing and takes forever. With a Direct Hire position all I had to do was submit a hard-copy resume to the actual hiring manager and within a week I was called in for an interview.

    Interview Questions

    • The interview process was pretty painless and did not cover any real technical questions. The interviewer looked over my degree and related experience, told me about the position and asked if I felt I had anything to offer the team.   1 Answer

    Negotiation

    There are 3 tiers of starting pay a person can start at based on the level of degree. I had a Masters degree but was able to use prior experience to negoatiate a starting pay at the highest tier (PhD level).

    Military Officer Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Dayton, OH
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at US Air Force (Dayton, OH) in December 2010.

    Interview

    The process to become an officer in the US Military is long and requires a lot of patience. There is an in person interview, background check, multiple IQ / Competency tests, there is also a personality test. If you are accepted you spend either 4 years in ROTC through college or 3 months in intense "Boot Camp" Style officer training school. It's not easy but it is definitely worth it.

    Negotiation

    You don't really negotiate. You either want it and get it or you don't.
