Applicants will be asked a series of 8-12 behavioral-based interview questions by a panel of three Alaska State Troopers of varying rank. The board interview can last up to an hour, but is not graded for time. Applicants are scored on the quality, detail, and the delivery of their answers. Applicants are encouraged to research behavioral-based interview questions on-line, and practice delivering thorough and comprehensive answers out loud. Communication skills are very important, and we measure the applicant’s ability to answer questions with examples, and provide detail about their training, experience, and skills/character traits. An interview typically lasts about 45 minutes.
