    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. I interviewed at US Army (Ogden, UT).

    Interview

    They really want to build their applicant pipeline, and generally speaking, they do an alright job of it. But they spend most of the time trying to convince you of how great the army is. As long as you're smart and have a good head on your shoulders, they will try to get you on the team.

    Interview Questions

    • You'll always get "why do you want to be an Army officer" in an OCS or ROTC interview. Just be honest. Trust me, as someone who sat on these interviews, you can see a fake patriotic response a mile away.   1 Answer

    Interview

    Interview process is basically a length of time spent in training environments to see if candidates are able to meet the minimum standards. Depending on your route to a commission as an officer, you could potentially spend 5 years at the United States Military Academy, 4 years at a standard university studying your degree field mixed in with military leadership training, or attend Officer Candidate School where you will attend Basic Training then follow a lengthy evaluation process immediately after to determine your eligibility to serve as an officer.

    Interview Questions

    • There is not really specific questions. The process focuses more on practical real-life situations and how a candidate is able to respond under pressure.   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    There is no negotiations. Compensation and benefits stems from standardized formula and revisited yearly.

    Accepted Offer

    Interview

    The process was conducted mainly through recruiters. Eventually, for an OCS contract, you will be interviewed by a board consisting of (in my case) one Major and three Captains. They will proceed to ask you general interview questions pertaining to your work ethic, management abilities, how to deal with conflict, etc. Nothing very difficult.

    Interview Questions

    • They will ask you about any discrepencies in your past and how you would deal with a soldier who was in a similar situation.   Answer Question

    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 6 weeks. I interviewed at US Army (Fullerton, CA).

    Interview

    Started in college in ROTC. The Army ROTC campus personnel interviewed me, checked my grades, and explained what the army offered. I did not recieve my commision until I finished basic training, ROTC campus classes, and advance camp (now known as Warrior Forge). Even completion of ROTC does not ensure you are commisioned, you will also be subject to a background investigation and must complete your degree.

    Following commisioning a new officer must complete their Officer basic courses prior to going into the field as an army officer.

    Interview Questions

    • ROTC is a process and not just a series of interviews. A cadet will be faced with a number of leadship tests and trials that will be evaluated. Many of these are done in the field during training.   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    No negotiation. It's the Army.
