Easy Interview

Application

I applied through a recruiter. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at US Army (Washington, DC).

Interview

Had to take ROTC classes...No interview process required. Once you finish all your schooling, you are commissioned as a 2nd lieutenant. Then Uncle Sam owns your "forth point of contact."

    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

    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

    Went through ROTC and it was easy. First was phone call and then you meet in person. Have to pass a physical fitness test, which is obvious... Overall if you really want it and the scholarship is available, then you will achieve your goal.

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took a week. I interviewed at US Army.

    Interview

    Sign on the dotted line. I attended ROTC through college. Simple process had me fill out some forms, pass a physical and drug screen. My ROTC program was 1.5 years done through the university. Couldn't be easier. Great way to get some amazing experience and pay right out of college especially if you want to do something a bit different.

    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
