    Difficult Interview

    Application

    The process took 4+ months. I interviewed at US Army in November 2009.

    Interview

    Becoming an Army Officer is challenging but not difficult, all courses are designed for you to succeed. OCS (officer candidate school) is the biggest hurtle consisting of Physical Conditioning, Military Academics, and leadership potential. One is graded and ranked with peers in the above category and is only selected is he or she passes all 3 functional areas according to Army Standards.

    Interview Questions

    • The most challenging part of being an Army Officer is handling stress and responsibility. The Army gives you near impossible tasks and expects it to be done on time and accurately. You must manage the time of others to accomplish goals and make the mission happen.   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    If you time it right you will be able to choose your duty location if there is vacancies. Many have very few assignments and go where the Army needs them.

    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
