Do Army Civilians have a service commitment?

In most cases, unless you are eligible for and accept a monetary recruitment bonus, relocation bonus, or another similar incentive, you will not be required to commit to a specific number of years of service. No military service is required.

Do you have to pass a physical fitness test to work as an Army Civilian?

No, Army civilians are not required to pass the Army Combat Fitness Test (ACFT) in order to serve.

Do you have to be military to live on base?

Most bases don’t allow government or civilian employees to live on base, mostly due to the number of active-duty members who have priority. However, when bases aren’t able to fill their housing, they may make vacant housing available to certain government employees.

What benefits do Army Civilians receive?

You can expect a competitive salary and benefits package designed to offer you a comfortable and secure work-life balance. These benefits include: paid holidays, sick leave, and vacation time; various health and life insurance options; retirement program with matching employer contribution; bonuses, awards, and other incentives for job performance.

If I was previously in the military, can I apply for civilian jobs in the Army?

Yes. As a veteran, you might get preference in hiring over non-veteran applicants. While veterans' preference does not necessarily guarantee you'll be hired, it does help your resume stand out among other applicants.

The AMC Legal Enterprise Honors Program places highly qualified recent law school graduates and new attorneys into permanent positions at a competitive starting salary (GS-11 grade).

The program is open to attorneys who have demonstrated superior academic or professional accomplishment or achievement, including:

  • Academic standing in the upper third of the attorney’s law school graduating class.
  • Work or achievement of significance for one of the attorney’s law school’s official law reviews or journals.
  • Special high-level honors for academic excellence in law school (e.g., membership in the Order of the Coif, winning of a moot court competition, or membership on the moot court team that represents the attorney’s law school in competition with other law schools).
  • Full-time or continuous participation in a legal aid program as opposed to one-time, intermittent, or casual participation.
  • Significant summer law office clerk experience.
  • Other evidence of clearly superior accomplishment or achievement.

Although the positions are ultimately only open to licensed attorneys, recent law school graduates may apply before bar admittance.
