    are you a 4 year enlistee that came in as an AB?

    I came in around the same time you did Oct 03 and I went up for BTZ a few months back but I didn't make it b/c I got screwed by my flight's management

    Mine was easy, OSI only has one BTZ slot to give away, and I was the only one to go before the board. :o :mamoru: All opinion questions, plus Friday afternoon board time FTW. :big grin:

    Think I'm the only one testing for SSgt this year too. :mamoru:

    The likelihood of me having to supervise anytime soon though, is close to zero. I want it for the BAH jump up to 1388, and the 2028 base pay. :o

    No, you could make yourself shine in front of the board.
    Just know the PFE. It's easy!

    nope, i honestly don't know what type of question they'd ask. I mean, I can understand being asked about rules and regs, programs, and whatnot... but "what makes a leader?" seems to be too broad of a question.

    Have you been up for any Airman of the Month boards? Or any other boards? They helped me a ton on my BTZ board.

    It is usually comprised of three or more NCO members of the unit issuing the Below The Zone stripe. They review your performance on and off duty, dress and appearance, and Air Force knowledge. The victor gets promoted to E-4 from E-3 six months early. Sometimes if the timing is right, the BTZ winner can test for E-5 within the next cycle.
