E4 - Marines - Corporal Interview

E4 - Marines - Corporal
Detroit, MI

I applied in-person and the process took 3 weeks - interviewed at US Marine Corps in July 2010.

Interview Details – Speak with your recruiter. Remember your recruiter, god bless them, is just trying to do a job. He has to meet a quota every month; what's known as making mission. Very few of them are actively trying to "screw you". But if you're not vocal about what you want it can happen. The fiscal year begins in October. That's when you have the best shot of getting the job that you want. Be honest but if there's no record of it you can leave it off.

Interview Question – Have you ever done drugs before. If hypothetically you smoked Marijuana when you were younger but you were never caught and there's no record of it. Should you answer yes or no. That's one that I'll leave up to you. You should always be honest when applying for entrance to the military. Our core values are honor, courage, and commitment. But, unless you're trying to get a very special security clearance. It won't matter if you say no.   Answer Question

I applied in-person and the process took 4 days - interviewed at US Marine Corps.

Interview Details – There was no real interview process to speak of when I joined. As long as your were competent enough to pass the ASVAB and were willing to sacrifice your time to put up with a hassle of a medical examination you could get in. The current process I am not too aware of, but I know that acceptance has gotten more restricted.

Interview Question – Have you ever taken illegal drugs?   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – No negotiations.

Difficult Interview

E4 - Marines - Corporal Interview

E4 - Marines - Corporal
New York, NY

I applied through an employee referral and the process took 1 week - interviewed at US Marine Corps in July 2009.

Interview Details – Initially, the interview process would start with a phone call or 1 on 1 in person. This interview would be the qualification stage to sort people out before anyone waste's their time. once you meet the qualifications you would be sent to MEPS which you would conduct a written examination to help select an occupation while you serve in the military then you would be asked to complete a physical that goes in depth with analyzing each part of your body to ensure that you truly are health before you proceed any further. any part of these stages you final, you will be dropped from the admission process.

Interview Question – The most difficult question that would be asked is the job occupation that you choose because if you serve only 4 years then get out this is what you will be doing for these 4 years. if you are planning to stay for the long hall then you would be assigned to various billets outside you job occupation.   Answer Question
