I'd recommend brushing up on your "how to use the search function on an internet forum" skills.

Know where your basic is, how long Basic training is, and what you do in your basic. Then know length of P2 training,where and what you do.
knowing what your job role will be.
Be yourself and always tell the truth.

sorry smudge. i have tried using a search function.

but i wanted some specific answers about what i will need to know..

not that the interview will be formal, arrive early, and dress smart.. that to me is common sense

Don't worry about it. Be smart, honest, and admit to anything you don't know the answer to. As already mentioned before, don't waffle.

They don't expect you to know a great deal about the Army, since you're not in yet.

The mistake most often made by the greatest number of interviewees is that they talk about what the organisation can do for them instead of what they can do for the organisation. They're not interested in whether you'll get wood when you look at yourself in the mirror in uniform they want to know if you're willing to put in, willing to slog yourself and put your all into being a soldier. Be honest, admit when you don't know something but tell them you'll find out the answer. Be yourself, you may be able to bluff your way in but you can't bluff your way through a whole career. Don't use strong language and definitely DON'T, call anyone mate.






Just seen you're from Wigan: Don't sit there eating pies and don't bang on about your shite RL team. You may wish to discuss Spurs though.

So what part of that were you unable to figure out for yourself

Are you going Intelligence Corps by any chance :wink:

Whats the difference between a 1st and 2nd interview? I never had a 2nd.

This is somewhat reminiscent of my interview.

And I went up there, I said, "Shrink, I want to kill. I mean, I wanna, I
wanna kill. Kill. I wanna, I wanna see, I wanna see blood and gore and
guts and veins in my teeth. Eat dead burnt bodies. I mean kill, Kill,
KILL, KILL." And I started jumpin up and down yelling, "KILL, KILL," and
he started jumpin up and down with me and we was both jumping up and down yelling, "KILL, KILL." And the sergeant came over, pinned a medal on me, sent me down the hall, said, "You're our boy."

Well yes apart from the obvious :)
Just seems that the info that the poster is been advised to find out is info i had to find out and answer in my 1st and only AFCO interview.

1) Dont be late.
2) Be smartly dressed.
3) Be confident but not cocky.
4) Dont waffle.

I once sent a potential recruit home for turning up in jeans "T" shirt and trainers !

Hope it go's well fella !
