    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.

    Interview

    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.

    No negotiations

    Interview

    Wasn't hard at all. Just went to the Navy Recruiter's office and sat down with the recruiter and discussed the options avalable and what my intrests were. We discussed my job history and education. The recruiter let me know of all the benifits available like G.I Bill, TSP, SGLI and insentive pays for different programs.

    E7 - Navy - Chief Petty Officer Interview

    Interview

    Easy interview-As long as you can pass a physical, the Navy will take you. Plenty of job options available depending on your ASVAB score. Eventually, when you're assigned to a submarine, you will face a lot of interviews for qualification boards, but on-the-job experience will fully prepare you.

    Interview

    When you go enlisted it is pretty straightforward, you go talk to a recruiter. It helps to do a little researcher just in case the recruiter attempts to see you on a different navy rate.

    Senior Nurse Executive Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Accepted Offer

    Interview

    Apply to BUMEd Nurse Corps, multiple interview with directors at facility and also with XO and CO. Selection process lasted about 4 months. These positions are not very sought after in the Navy as they are difficult and there is really no incentive in monetary compensation. The Nurse Corps 06 pool of qualified candidates is small and few raise their hand to do he hard jobs.

    Negotiation

    No negotiation, it is the Navy

    CTT Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Accepted Offer

    Interview

    Walked into a recruiting center, wanted to speak to the Army recruiter, got snagged up by the Navy recruiter, and after hearing all the Navy had to offer, decided to go with the Navy. This was, of course, before President Obama took office and destroyed/removed many of the benefits that newly enlisted could receive (so by the time I enlisted many of the benefits I had been offered we're no longer in effect). Took the ASVAB, scored very high, took a military intel rate, and now I'm basically a janitor with a clearance.

    Negotiation

    There was not a negotiation

    LELT Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Accepted Offer

    Interview

    You must have experience and the supervisor confidence to handle this position as you will have the sole responsibility for this job. The senior management rarely has the experience or knowledge to give you assistance in making decisions for this role.
