    Enlisted Military Interview

    Anonymous Employee
    Accepted Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at US Air Force.

    Interview

    You talk to a recruiter, the recruiter lies to you or is misinformed, you join, then you realize you wanted to do something else. But sometimes they're cool and fill out all your paperwork before you go to training, so that's nice.

    Interview

    Go to the recruiter and they set you up on the process if you qualify. Less than .05 percent of the United States population is Military, even less United States Air Force. Each career field has it's different specifications, and the Air force makes career selections based on need. So not only do you have to be qualified, but to get the job you want you have to be patient. The recruiter will try to put you wherever is most convenient for them-- do not let them. Choose wisely, and assertively for yourself!
