    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took a weekinterviewed at Marine Corps Community Services (Norfolk, VA).

    Interview

    Easy interview process. Applied, had interview the following week. Friend of mine worked for MCCS and referred me so I think that made a big difference. The only time consuming part was waiting on the background check and security clearance to come through so I could get a CAC card.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3+ monthsinterviewed at Marine Corps Community Services.

    Interview

    I applied for the job through http://www.usmc-mccs.org/careers end of November 2013 but I did not hear from them until Mid-January 2014 for an interview then i did not hear from them until end of February and only started 2nd week of March 2014. The process was ridiculous and not healthy for company (i think). They interview was a panel of three, General Manager, Assistant Manager and Housekeeping Supervisor. What they are looking for is a personality.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 dayinterviewed at Marine Corps Community Services in May 2013.

    Interview

    Very easy, there was no questions that were out of the ordinary. I was just asked to sit down, was asked several questions regarding my skills and work history. I was asked when I would be available to work and why I want to work there. Getting the phone call back from HR was probably the hardest part.

    Family Readiness Officer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Okinawa (Japan)
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 dayinterviewed at Marine Corps Community Services (Okinawa (Japan)) in June 2009.

    Interview

    Received a call from HR to schedule interview. Prior to interview you will have to provide a 15 min writing sample on the fly (mine was on short and long term goals). The idea is to test your writing not necessary your skills. You will also be given a presentation topic for the interview. You will need to research and make a PP presentation. They are checking for your speaking ability, as well as your research skills. The panel interview would be with the actual Commanding Officer and other military members you will be working with. Each interview will be different b/c it depends on the CO's environment and how he/she goes forth. Do research into policies and MCO's for your presentation. Reference MCO 1754.9

    Interview Questions

    • Examples of volunteer experience and how would you recruit volunteers.   Answer Question
    • What makes you the best qualified? What is an IA?   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    No negation. A flat salary for everyone starting out. Okinawa is a take it or leave it place. There are 50 other people that would want that job if you don't.
