    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at US Navy (San Francisco, CA).

    Interview

    There was/is no process. You must know what you want to do, and be qualified to do it in accordance with your ASVAB score, and there must be openings available. DO not take your second choice just to get in. Hold out for what you want. Otherwise you could be miserable for the length of your contract and your career set back.

    Application

    I applied online – interviewed at US Navy.

    Interview

    I applied for the Navy Financial Management Training Program(FMTP) in October 2014. Got a few calls back in December 2014, asking for phone interviews. Completed phone interviews the week before Christmas 2014. Early January 2015, I heard back from the program's recruiter, saying I was accepted for a few locations. Took a few weeks to decide which location I was going to accept with. Start date is late February 2015.

    Interview Questions

    • Easy interviews for all locations. Essentially, I was asked to describe myself for a minute or two, and they asked if I had any questions about the FMTP. Whole interview took five minutes, if that.   Answer Question

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 6+ monthsinterviewed at US Navy.

    Interview

    There is no interview process. A civilian has to meet certain qualifications (i.e. US citizen, no severe lawful punishments) in order to be processed through the Military Entrance Processing Station (MEPS). However, before being processed a civilian should be familiar with the ASVAB test that is required to take in order to be placed (based on the score) in certain job titles. Once a civilian is processed through MEPS, then he or she will go to the Naval Boot Camp at the Great Lakes Naval Training Center in Illinoise.

    Interview Questions

    • There are certain questions that are asked when talking to a recruiter prior to going to MEPS. These are all easy questions, but the question that a civilian should be asking is what is the best way to study for the ASVAB.   1 Answer

    Negotiation

    There is no negotiation unless there are certain financial debts a civilian is wanting the Navy to deal as part of a "negotiation." However, don't fully trust a recruiter that tells you everything will be taken care of. It is important to have all deals written on paper.
