Since you are going to work on the US Military base, it is required that you possess a firm grasp of the English language (reading, writing and speaking). There will also be a series of English tests that you are required to complete prior to employment. Many candidates are overconfident in their English speaking abilities.

LOGCAP recruiters simply can’t afford to hire job candidates who don’t have the potential to work out. They want solid, reliable employees who bring their best to the workplace every day, specially on a LOGCAP project. They value employees who are clear communicators, self-motivated, team players, hard working and honest.
LOGCAP recruiter going to start looking at applications much more in-depth, and the second cut will involve applying weighted pre-screening criteria to each and every potential job candidate.
One of the ways your honesty is measured is by taking the WABI (Work Assessment Behavioral Inventory) test during orientation. In this test, you will be asked a series of questions which will indicate whether you can follow orders, work as a team member, keep your emotions in check and whether you’re honest or not. They will try to trip you up by asking the same questions in a different way to see if you give conflicting answers.
