    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter – interviewed at US Marine Corps.

    Interview

    Asked basic questions, mostly lied about what I would be doing and where I would be doing it. Lasted less than half an hour however the actual signing took over 3 hours since the military likes to waste time and make you wait for no reason while the employees fumble around to make it look like they are doing something productive vs actually doing something productive like helping out the applicants.

    Interview Questions

    • Did I have a criminal background, drug abuse background. Alcohol abuse is fine since alcohol fuels the military machine.   1 Answer

    Negotiation

    No negotiation necessary due to having a pulse makes you an excellent candidate.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter – interviewed at US Marine Corps (Southgate, MI).

    Interview

    The Marine Recruiter sought me out by phone and did a screening over the phone to see if I was basically qualified. Then set an appointment where he picked me up from my house. He had me place "benefit tags" in order of priority and then explained how I would get my top three benefits. Then I scheduled to take my ASVAB and medical physical. After completing that I pick out my job field. The recruiter was very knowledgable and friendly and made me priority when I told him I wanted to join.
