    Application

    I applied in-person. I interviewed at US Air Force (Troy, OH).

    Interview

    For the Air Force, the interview process is different from the normal interview of a company. They will ask personal questions to verify your eligibility for enlistment. The most personal questions will be through MEPS, after the initial interview. You will also have to complete the ASVAB to figure out what jobs you qualify for. Your recruiter will help you with this. They are here for you, and if they can find a way to enlist you, they will.

    Interview Questions

    • What kind of positions are you interested in? Is there a particular job you are interested in? How old are you? What is your GPA? Have you graduated high school (if so, from where)? Are you married? Kids? What are your future goals? Are you currently working? Who is your employer? Do you have any college degrees or certs? Have you ever been arrested for a felony or for substance abuse? Have you ever taken drugs, if so, what? Do you have tattoos? Those are the top questions I remember.

      If you have not graduated high school, they do have programs for you.   1 Answer
