    Application Details

    I applied in-person - interviewed at US Army in September 2013.

    Interview Details

    You apply online through a database that sorts through applicants for specific experience. I was then put throught a board of reviewers that grade you based on the actual position requirements in comparison to years of experience. Following I am interviewed by 3 individuals with a series of questions. Final interview was with the General Officer I would have to work for.

    Negotiation Details
    It was fairly easy. Because I was already in the system, there is a percentage increase within the alloted pay bracket that I was able to increase. No other options were available because of the limits of hiring actions for the government at the time.
