E6 - Army - Staff Sergeant Interview

Positive Experience
Difficult Interview

Application

The process took 1 day. I interviewed at US Army.

Interview

The board to be promoted to Staff Sergeant can be as difficult as your leadership allows it to be. It is designed to test the knowledge and capability of the leader, and, depending on leadership, test the leader on how they personally handle stress. From my experience as a scout, my boards have been lengthy processes. Though most of it was focused on my knowledge in my MOS, a good amount of the time was spent heckling and harassing me to see if I would break.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at US Army (Leominster, MA).

    Interview

    Take an aptitude test, select one of the jobs you qualify for, pass the physical, and sign the contract. Very few people are turned away. Even with downsizing in progress I would still be shocked to hear of someone who is healthy and drug-free with a HS diploma being turned away.

    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. I interviewed at US Army (Seattle, WA) in December 2012.

    Interview

    You go and see a military recruiter who then schedules you to see doctors to ensure you meet the physical and mental criteria. You also take tests to include the ASVAB and have to score above 30 some odd percent over the population. Once you pass all of the screening you will be given a chance to go into the plethora of fields in the ARMY, then you're shipped off to basic training which is tougher than most job interviews in the world. You pass that, you're then sent to a technically advanced course where you can focus on the field you chose or were chosen to go into.

    Interview Questions

    • If you opt to take the Defensive Language Aptitude Battery after scoring high enough during the ASVAB You will take a very very long language test. You will be given a very short for comprehension and then be asked a lot of questions in a made up language.   1 Answer

    Negotiation

    G.I Bill. College payback options, enlistment bonus options. Places I would like to travel to. Which foreign language I preferred to learn. How many years out of the initial 8 year enlistment contract did I want to serve on Active Duty.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at US Army (Scottsdale, AZ) in January 2009.

    Interview

    Be HONEST with your recruiter. They are there to help, and if you are not qualified, they will let you know

    Interview Questions

    • The security clearance is by far the hardest just because of the amount of references you must provide   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    Don't think you can negotiate for bonuses very much. Your recruiter WILL let you know what is available. They receive no compensation for "putting more people in boots" or denying you a bonus. If it is available for the job you are looking for, it will be offered to you.
