    I have been working at Air Force Research Laboratory full-time

    Pros

    Ability to participate in the cutting edge of Air Force technology research and development and to work with experts in a variety of engineering fields.

    Cons

    Gov bureaucracy makes it tough to make significant changes to research direction from the bottom. Most opportunities to pursue innovative new research require seeking outside sponsors for the work. Very slow hiring process makes it tough to attract and keep fresh talent.

    Advice to Management

    Find ways to adapt more quickly and to continue to enhance innovative & rapid acquisition processes to cut red tape. Put procedures in place to fast-track hiring & to make offers more competitive with industry in key technical areas.

    Application

    I applied through other source. The process took a week. I interviewed at Air Force Research Laboratory (San Antonio, FL).

    Interview

    Very low key. I was mostly asked questions on my educational background and where I thought I could fit in to the organization. I actually interviewed over the phone without knowing prior to the call. So as far as that situation came about, the interview was very mild.

    Interview Questions

    • Questions were mostly based on educational background. They were very interested in computer/mathematical modeling, organic chemistry, explosives design, and design of experiments.   Answer Question
