I applied through a recruiter and interviewed at US Navy.

Interview Details – No interview, fill out an application with your local recruiter, don't have any drugs detectable in a urinalysis test, be in good enough shape to run 1.5 miles in less than 15 minutes or so, be able to do 50-60 situps and 40 or so pushups in 2 minutes for each exercise. other than that it's cake. DO NOT let the recruiter sign you up for ANY job other than the one you want to do. If he tells you there are no openings for the job you want, tell him to give you a call when it opens up and leave his office. Seriously, if he's lying he won't let you leave, unless he's embarrassed about lying in which case he'll call you later in the week and tell you it's opened up. if it really isn't open than just wait it out a month, maybe two and it will become available eventually bottom line, don't believe the recruiter if he tells you that once you are in the fleet you can cross-rate to the job you want; while it is possible, it's very difficult to do and most likely it won't happen.

Interview Question – Have you ever taken/used any illegal drugs?   View Answer
