    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at US Air Force.

    Interview

    More of a test and physical. Their really is not an interview to join the US Air Force. It is more of a background check and then they decide if you are physically able to be in the military. I am sure some covert interview steps are taken to insure that you are capable of serving, but it is not made clear to the interviewee.
