    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at US Marine Corps (San Diego, CA).

    Interview

    There is a 3 month mandatory interview process. This process is to assess your mental and physical capacity to operate under stress. It is 24 hours a day. But don't worry. The USMC will provide "3 hots and a cot". You also get some time on the range but not nearly enough.

    Interview Questions

    • This is performance based. "Can you get up out of bed get dressed, shave, make your rack, and be out the door going to chow in 5 minutes?"   Answer Question

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at US Marine Corps.

    Interview

    The recruiter was friendly but vague and I had to pry to get information I needed to make my decision. The process of joining was very easy. I would recommend that anyone considering this service to really consider what it is you want to do and where you want your career to go after your time in the Marine Corps. The recruiter will tell you what he needs to in order to get you to join. He/she won't tell you any reasons you shouldn't.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at US Marine Corps.

    Interview

    Asked basic questions, mostly lied about what I would be doing and where I would be doing it. Lasted less than half an hour however the actual signing took over 3 hours since the military likes to waste time and make you wait for no reason while the employees fumble around to make it look like they are doing something productive vs actually doing something productive like helping out the applicants.

    Interview Questions

    • Did I have a criminal background, drug abuse background. Alcohol abuse is fine since alcohol fuels the military machine.   1 Answer

    Negotiation

    No negotiation necessary due to having a pulse makes you an excellent candidate.
