    I applied in-person – interviewed at US Navy.

    Interview Details

    They ask you about your background, level of education, your accomplishments and set you up for a test. It is a great experience and easy to speak to recruiters. They are always looking for young recruits to join the Navy.

    Application Details

    I applied online – interviewed at US Navy.

    Interview Details

    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

    Air Traffic Control Specialist Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Application Details

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

    Interview Details

    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.   View Answer
    Negotiation Details
    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.

    US Navy Pilot Interview

    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took 12+ monthsinterviewed at US Navy.

    Interview Details

    I was accepted through US Naval Academy as the commissioning source. In order to become a pilot, you have to have had decent grades in order to choose/receive the job that you want. Out of the Naval Academy I went to Aviation Preflight Indoctrination which was the initial aviation school and then after that on to flight school. The bottom line is that grades and performance will ultimately decide the platform that you will be able to choose (for the top graduate) or receive (for everyone else).

    Interview Questions
    • Not applicable - it's a long process and not an interview.   Answer Question

I chose a job based on scores from my ASVAB scoring. The recruiter walked me through everything I would encounter in boot camp and I signed. It couldn't be easier.
