    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at Marine Corps Community Services Camp Pendleton (Camp Pendleton, CA) in March 2013.

    Interview

    Two interviews. First was a panel of 5 Marines. I had to submit a timed typing sample and then do a 5 minute PowerPoint presentation that was provided to me 5 minutes before the presentation to the panel. The interview was a "performance based" interview, however the questions did not get too in depth. The second interview was only with the Commanding Officer, and it was a much more relaxed environment. More of a conversation. They were very quick in scheduling both interviews (they called me that same day to say I'd advanced to the next round). After the second interview the Commanding Officer called me a couple hours later to say they had selected me.

    Interview Questions

    • Honestly, the questions weren't difficult. They just wanted to know what my experience was to assess how I could serve the families and adapt to the military environment. The most difficult thing was the shock of having to memorize and then present a presentation within 5 minutes in front of an intimidating panel (of what ended up being 5 very kind and friendly Marines). I was very prepared. That is my only advice: prepare for a "performance based interview" and you'll be great.   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    There was no negotiation. They start people at the top of the pay range automatically. Being a government agency, there is a pay scale based on the pay grade. No negotiating allowed.
