I applied online. The process took 2 months. I interviewed at Royal Air Force in Mar 2021

Interview

Applied online in February, offered a phone interview by the interviewing Corporal in March 2021. The interview is in two parts: A. about you, your career story to date, sports clubs, qualifications, milestones, adventure activities (if you're coming straight from college or sixth form don't worry as this is more about what achievements you have made to date). B. why do YOU want to join the RAF? what is your motivation? I was always obsessed with aircraft and the military from a young age which is why I studied Aerospace Engineer etc... Make sure you have a ground knowledge in what aircraft the RAF operate and learn at least 4-5 flying stations in the UK and abroad. Also important: the Corporal will ask for your knowledge on current events in the news so make sure you read and keep up to date with news both in the UK and Globally as they will also ask for your opinion on these topics. Also make sure you read up on RAF air doctrine as questions will be asked on this.

Difficult Interview
Application

I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Royal Air Force (Cranwell, England) in Oct 2020

Interview

Applied two years ago! Process is ridiculously long. That said, I passed EVERY hurdle without issues until I attended the OASC. To my knowledge I passed the planning exercise, group activities and group discussions but was interviewed at the last stage by a shockingly overweight officer who had no interest in myself or much of her own job. I mention weight only because fitness is part of their ethos and a fitness test much be conducted during the application. However, why should applicants be made to undertake a fitness test when I'm interviewed and lectured by someone extremely overweight!? My candidate support manager was switched a good 4 times and I never had an issue with them all except 1 as this individual was very rude and again had no interest in recruitment. He refused to give out information and answer questions regarding the RAF as he stated "you are encouraged to research yourself instead of asking minor questions". I assured him that I took every effort to research answers myself but the Internet only confused me more. After all this I reviewed a rather sharp letter stating I was not recommended and when I asked what more can I do, I was simply informed that I must wait 12 months before reapplying and must go through the ENTIRE process again!

Interview Questions
  • Tell me what current operations are going on?
