Electronics Main Tech Interview

Anonymous Interview Candidate

I applied through other source and the process took 3 months - interviewed at US Marine Corps.

Interview Details – Boot Camp is not as scary as people think. I joined the Marine Corps 12 years ago. You basically do what the drill instructors say and you will get through it just fine. In fact, a the end of boot camp you might just find yourself missing how regimented and organized things were.

Marine Corps Officer Interview

Marine Corps Officer

Interviewed at US Marine Corps

Interview Details – I did not interview for the job other than my interview to be accepted into the Naval Academy. I attended USNA for four years and graduated, which then automatically leads to a commission in the Navy or USMC. I chose the Marine Corps over the Navy because of the culture and overall better leadership.
