I applied through a recruiter and the process took 4 weeks - interviewed at US Marine Corps in November 2009.
Interview Details – In order to be recruited into the Marine Corps, you must first meet with a recruiter in your local area. A test will be administered, ASVAB, which will determine your potential job opportunities while in the Marine Corps. There is much documentation to filled out and then a physical to ensure there are no issues that would prevent you from completing your contract. Once completed and all is good to go, then you will receive a ship date and head off to bootcamp.

Negotiation Details – There is none in the Marine Corps
I applied through a recruiter - interviewed at US Marine Corps in October 2009.
Interview Details – Recruitment seems like a winnowing out process, but is really designed to make sure you can meet the minimum intellectual standards and are physically fit. Additionally, due to force-reduction, the speed with which you can get a slot to boot camp has been significantly reduced. You should expect to spend some months in the Delayed Entry Program, and have a temporary job lined up.
Boot Camp sucks. There is no way around it. You are going to get yelled at and forced to put your body through all the painful things that angry, bitter, Drill Instructors with wicked senses of humor and nothing better to do can think of to do with you. The quickest way out, though, is to graduate. Try not to stick out and you will be just fine.
Negotiation Details – There was no negotiation for anything except MOS and whether or not you deserve a signing bonus. Also, recruiters have the ability to make you a PFC straight out of the gate. If you have any college experience, make sure you angle for this.
