Aviation Electrician Interview

Aviation Electrician

I applied in-person and the process took a day - interviewed at US Navy.

Interview Details – Sign you name on the dotted line....if you qualify after taking the ASVAB test then you will have your choice of jobs, which the recruiter will go over with you. It's not a very lengthy process, but come armed with questions and possibly a friend or trusted person who has, recently, gone through the process themselves and will know what the recruiter is talking about. This will also not allow the recruiter/s to influence you into something you won't like or enjoy as a career in the Navy. Then you won't be one of the individuals who you'll hear saying, "my recruiter screwed me."

Interview Question – There are none. Just sign up and they'll take you!   Answer Question

Interview Details – Applied to the Navy's Nuclear Propulsion Officer Candidate (NUPOC) Program through an officer recruiter after meeting said recruiter during a visit to my university. After a detailed application process, I was invited to Naval Reactors in Washington DC for a formal interview. This consisted first of technical interviews in the morning with two experienced engineers who had worked at NR for years. The more intimidating interview was in the afternoon, with the 4-star admiral in charge of the program.
