AOSB interviews

Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial military website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. AOSB drawing in...I know what to expect with all of the other bits, but I'm not sure about the interviews. Are they a grilling, or are they fairly chilled?
     
  2. Briefing or Main Board?
     
  3. Main Board.
     
  4. It's a robust interview. They aren't trying to turn you into a quivering wreck, but they aren't going to give you an easy ride either. I found my interviews to be reasonably straightforward, they didn't seem to be trying to catch you out but simply to establish your motivations, understanding and desire to do the job and your background.
     
  5. Ah, thanks HH 2. I'll try and pre-empt some of the more likely questions.
     
  6. Prepare good answers for 'why the army', 'what if you fail', 'what makes a good leader', 'define leadership', and 'who are your heroes'.

    Judging by my interview, you wont actually be able to bluff it, but you'll feel more confident if you dont get completely blindsided.
