    Civil Engineer Corps Officer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Interview Details

    Interview process setup by recruiter and easy to perform. Interview itself was as expected, nothing too out of the ordinary. Mostly based on decision to serve, wishes once in service, and ability to handle change and deployments overseas.

    Electronics Technician Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Jacksonville, FL
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Jacksonville, FL
    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3+ monthsinterviewed at US Navy in November 2010.

    Interview Details

    There really isn't a traditional interview process. You get screened by a recruiter for a lot of different things. Drug use, criminal history, aptitude testing. You don't even get physically screened anymore. You don't pick a job until a few days before you leave for bootcamp, and they don't provide a clear view of the jobs, or give you much time to pick one before you get thrown into a plane to go to Chicago.

    Missile Technician Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Milwaukie, OR
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Milwaukie, OR
    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at US Navy.

    Interview Details

    I went to the local U.S. Navy recruiting office and talked about opportunities with the U.S. Navy. There were a lot of details about my job that the recruited (not being a Missile Technician) could not possibly know; therefore, be prepared for the unexpected. Know well in advance of your arrival what you want to do in day-to-day operations. I knew mostly what I wanted and consequently got mostly what I wanted. Be assertive in your goals and communicate them appropriately to the recruiter. Make sure you carefully read your contract - and know that not everything is in it.

    Negotiation Details
    My ASVAB was 97/99; therefore, I could have been a nuclear reactor technician if I wanted. Since I wanted to be a Missile Technician, I considered the other offer for a day then came back and told the recruiter my decision to join as an MT.

    Interview Details

    Went to a navy recruiter. Do your own research before you let them rope you in. It is not a bad job but realize you are just a quota for a recruiter.

    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 5+ monthsinterviewed at US Navy in March 2010.

    Interview Details

    Go talk to a Recruiter for "fool" proof information. If they need you they'll take you. An ASVAB assessment will determine what jobs you qualify for. If your not good at taking tests I would recommend getting a book of practice tests or looking for free ones online.

    Interview Questions

    Interview Details

    Very easy to get in initially. Boot Camp for 10 weeks - if you make it through boot camp you're in. Talk to a recruiter initially and find out the details on the next steps. I thought I was going in for a different position, but was given the opportunity to join the US Navy. Everyone is helpful and wants you to succeed.
