    Difficult Interview

    Application

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

    Interview

    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

    Initial contact was easy and simple. I contacted my local Navy recruiter and all paperwork was gone over in depth. The entire process was seamless and effortless. 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.

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 3+ monthsinterviewed at US Navy.

    Interview

    Federal hiring process is cumbersome (5 page resume and lengthy application that requires assistance from someone with knowledge on federal resumes). Expect the hiring process to be slow (3-4 months).

    Interview Questions

    • Very basic interview with immediate job offer because they already knew my caliber of work.   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    lengthy. Be patient as long as your request is reasonable.
