    Application Details

    I interviewed through college or university. The process took a day - interviewed at US Navy in November 2008.

    Interview Details

    I submitted my resume through on-campus recruiting. I was notified that I was selected to interview at Washington Navy Yard. I arrived at 9 am, and there was a short presentation with a recruiter and a few current employees. They explained some information about the job and invited questions. Then, they offered me to the opportunity to interview immediately or schedule one for a later date. I opted to take it. There was a panel of about 6 people who represented different Navy agencies. The questions were all pretty standard interview questions - strengths, weakness, experience working with groups, etc. The entire process lasted about 3 hours.

    I received a phone call a few weeks later with an offer. I later discovered that they discuss and decide amongst themselves which agency will offer you a job.

    Interview Questions
    • Only unexpected was they asked something along the lines of: the military has to procure weapons and other products that will eventually kill and/or injure people. If instructed, you have to buy these things as part of your job. Do you have a problem with that?   View Answer
    Negotiation Details
    It's a government job, there is no negotiation.

    Application Details

    I interviewed through an employee referral. The process took 4+ weeks - interviewed at US Navy in October 2009.

    Interview Details

    The Navy has had shortages in the acquisition career fields so since I already has experience in this area it was a matter of gettin gmy resume in front of the right people. It took me about a year of repeatedly applying and finally my resume was chosen by a person who was already a contracts specialist and found my resume through one of her friends. She referred me and then about a month later I received an interview.

    Interview Questions
    • There were questions about some Navy specific programs such as NECO, etc. There were also questions about the CCR, DUNS.   View Answer
    Negotiation Details
    The negotiation phase was fair. They came with an initial offer that I couldn't afford to accept and I graciously declined and they came back a month later with an offer that I could accept.
