    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at US Air Force (Washington, DC).

    Interview

    You can work something out with your recruiter (don’t forget about ROTC!), or you could go to the MEPs and see what is available and when you could enter. You could ask for something general, like “maintenance”, and let the Air Force pick for you. Of course your ASVAB scores could limit your options. I recommend doing your research. Use the internet and networking to find what interests you the most. What will put you in certain geographical locations? What will have you deploy the most? What will give you civilian transitioning skills???

    Interview Questions

    • The recruiter will ask you questions pertaining to social life, medical, law…(I think. It’s been 20 years).   1 Answer

    Music Librarian Interview

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at US Air Force (Washington, DC) in August 2015.

    Interview

    Truly disgusting. To begin, the communications process was a disaster - It was stated that the interviews would occur on the 20th and 21st of the month. Ten days after I had booked my travel, I received further messages stating the "auditions" would occur on the 22nd. An apology later followed stating that the "audition" would occur on the 21st; so I had to pay out of pocket for an extra day of lodging. None of my expenses were reimbursed. My inquiry about reimbursement was overlooked or ignored.

    All of the correspondence was created from templates used for the band. This was obvious because the interview was referred to over and over in correspondence as an "audition". I did not perform any music, thus it was not an audition, however it was not an interview either.

    The letters made it clear that showing up by 8AM for registration was required. I showed up 15 minutes before registration time, then sat in a "holding room" (sounds like prison, right?) for an hour and fifteen minutes before the process began. 3 of the 4.5 hours I spent at the band building were in the holding room with 3-7 other candidates. There must have been a total of 16 candidates - 15 of which, in my opinion, were not given due respect. I should not have been invited to this; clearly they needed someone with extensive knowledge of band/orchestra/opera repertoire. I had to take the written test, full of broad questions covering LIS topics, copyright law issues, orchestration, transposition, band repertoire in detail and length I could not have imagined. I have a M.M. and an MLIS, and my opinion is that the questions were overwhelming, to say the least.

    This disastrous experience cost me over $800. This job will be extremely stressful for the poor soul who gets it - and he/she will be underpaid for the amount of burden it will impose. Ask what you can do for your country.

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at US Air Force (Falls Church, VA) in February 2015.

    Interview

    Conducting the interview process with the U S Air Force was easy and pretty much a straightforward background process I mostly had to give a background information and schooling information to answering a few question about skills to working in a fast busy environment. The overall experience was that the process took about 4 months because of funding issues.
