I applied through college or university and interviewed at Puget Sound Naval Shipyard.
Interview Details – Toured the facility as a student while doing my senior project. Went to the hiring session on campus. HR manager was a pleasant gentleman, however, it's not the place to be if you want to do research work. Great benefits & an opportunity to serve the country, however, the starting pay was not respectable to the level of engineering expertise.

I applied through a recruiter and the process took 6+ weeks - interviewed at Puget Sound Naval Shipyard in October 2012.
Interview Details – Recruiters came to a job fair at my college. After speaking with them for few minutes they asked if I would like an interview the next day. I said sure.
Interview was very basic. There were two people conducting the interview. Most questions had to do with personality profiling. Interview lasted about thirty minutes.
About a month later someone from one of the specific departments called me and offered a job. Normally you go up for a site visit first, but I guess they had to decide quickly and didn't have time for a visit.

Interview Details – Had a 1:1 interview at my school campus. Basic questions, nothing hard. Then I got a call for a site visit, which was more like a tour, with lunch with the branch head, and a lot of presentations. The site visit lasted a full day, about 8 hours. After accepting be ready to do a lot of paperwork for security clearances, and also be ready to pay upfront for moving expenses because they pay you back AFTER you have moved.
