O3 - Army - Captain Interview

Anonymous Interview Candidate in New York, NY
Declined Offer
Positive Experience
Average Interview

Application

I applied through college or university. I interviewed at US Army (New York, NY) in May 2012.

Interview

There was no interview. You just submit your packet to either go to OCS, West Point, or ROTC. If you complete the respective program, you become commissioned as a second lieutenant in the United States Army. Now I am just writing words to complete the word minimum. I enjoyed my time in the Army and wish the best for anyone who wants to join and serve our country.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 12+ months. I interviewed at US Army (Chicago, IL) in August 2012.

    Interview

    I went into the Army through the Reserve Officer Training Corp Program (ROTC) at my University. It did add additional time and work to my busy schedule but I would do it again in a heart-beat. Truely, the interview process takes two years in the traditional ROTC. It was fairly tough as the Army is selective. Then you get to become a third year cadet where you are really put to the test. Then there is a month long summer camp full of field training between the third and fourth years. If you don't pass the summer camp you don't get to continue on to the fourth and final year of ROTC training. The fourth year is pretty laid back as you are just finishing out your degree requirements and responsible for training the underclassmen.

    Interview Questions

    • We had to attend Physical Training three times a week, a "leadership lab" on Thursdays and a military science course on Tuesdays. You are organized in a Battalion with platoons and squads. It is a lot of fun but a little rediculous at times. I made a few life long friends in the process. The Army also teaches you the Army values. Loyalty, Duty, Respect, Selfless-service, Honor, Integrity and Respect (LDRSHIP for "Leadership").   1 Answer

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 6+ months. I interviewed at US Army (Delaware, OH) in February 2013.

    Interview

    The interview is most about your presentability and ability to verbalize. They just want to get a feel for you and what your interests are. They're looking for interpersonal skills. The biggest part of the application process is what you do BEFORE you ever get to the interview. They want to see some community involvement throughout law school. They want to see pro bono work, service hours, writing, the whole ball of wax. They really care that you didn't hole yourself away for 3 years and not do anything for your surrounding community.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 10+ months. I interviewed at US Army (West Point, NY).

    Interview

    The process of becoming an officer is pretty standardized. There are 3 ways to be commissioned in the US Army:
    1) Attend the United States Military Academy at West Point (or other service academy and transfer in some cases)
    2) Attend ROTC program on contract to join the Army at the end
    3) Attend Officer Candidate School

    There are dozens of potential "jobs" within the US Army that you will have a chance to choose/state preference for during the selection process

    Interview Questions

    • There is no "interview" per say...the most difficult thing for most people will be physical fitness. Google APFT to learn the standard and assume you need to be scoring 90pts per event as an officer (event hough 60 pts per event is "passing")   1 Answer

    Negotiation

    There is none.

    Interview

    Attended ROTC/Service Academy for commissioning, however have experience in recruiting for OCS. As an individual trying to go in as an officer, many recruiters may try to get you to sign up for something else...like an enlisted food worker...reason being, they have quotas they must fill. Do your research, and be prepared. Talk to veterans and others in the service currently and ask them about their experience.

    Interview Questions

    Negotiation

    No negotiations.
