    Talk to a recruiter, just be sure to research before you go. Recruiters won't lie to you, but might leave out facts. Be sure to research what job AFSC prior to going.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 6+ months. I interviewed at US Air Force (Los Angeles, CA) in March 2011.

    Interview

    A short interview with a random captain. She didn't really know what was going on. More of a farcical formality than anything. She just talked to me really. No meaningful questions.

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at US Air Force (Charlottesville, IN) in June 2012.

    Interview

    4 years of ROTC and successful completion of a summer camp between sophomore and junior years. Following successful completion of the college classes through 4 years of school, I received a commission and was appointed a second lieutenant in the United States Air Force. It was a great opportunity, following 4 years of hard work, and it has been the best job ever since.

    You need a four year college degree. Commissioning source either college ROTC, service academy, or OTS. Scholarships available, but flux every year on what they're looking for. There's never a safe career field. Once you're hired, you will have to compete to keep your job every year.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 12+ months. I interviewed at US Air Force (Eglin AFB, FL).

    Interview

    This is based on 'Whole Person Concept' and attitude, it does not "do it justice" to explain here. To become an Officer, there are 3 typical ways: Graduate the U.S. Air Force Academy, attend Air Force R.O.T.C. and graduate College, or be selected and complete Officer Training School at Maxwell AFB, AL. Your career field selection is weighed with your performance in the lengthy application process.

    Interview Questions

    • "Whole Person Concept" based, some of the (if not the) most scrutinized job selection aspects in the Country.   1 Answer

    Negotiation

    This is the U.S. Military, doesn't exactly translate to how a typical civilian job would offer a career option.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at US Air Force (Milwaukee, WI).

    Interview

    Spoke with a recruiter then met with an active duty officer. The recruiter of course was trying to get me to sign up, as his job is getting more people in. The officer however actually had some more interview type questions. He had to submit a final recommendation on my application package. I submitted the paperwork out of high school for a scholarship, and was awarded the opportunity. Otherwise there was no formal interview process for the position.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 12+ months. I interviewed at US Air Force (Clinton Township, MI) in March 2016.

    Interview

    The interview was conducted by my local recruiting station's commanding officer which in my case was a Captain. First, we went over my application resume and he asked me about my previous leadership positions from both high school and college. Then, he asked me a few questions including why I wanted to become an officer in the United States Air Force and what personal characteristics I possessed that made me qualified to lead Airmen. He then asked me a couple situational questions where I had to answer how I would react and handle specific situations that I might encounter as an officer in the military. Finally, I was able to ask him questions about anything I wanted to know (which I highly recommend doing during any interview, not just with the military). Overall, the interview was semi-casual and felt like a normal conversation at times.

    Interview Questions
