Interview Details

Morally, Mentally and Physically qualified . Test and Dr;s review. Long days, of hurry up and wait for next process to start. Some unexpected delays and trival testing requirement. Must have 5-10 years of addresses, names, phones, schools, work, and references to finish background check paperwork. Expect the process to drive you nuts and in most cases never finish when you expected. in the end it works out if you continue to push the recruiting staff.

Before contacting a recruiter, research the various career fields via this website and utilizing search engines as necessary. Define your strengths, weaknesses, goals, likes and dislikes regarding Navy career field opportunities and subsequent return to civilian life as thoroughly as possible.

    Interview Details

    The interview to get into the Navy's Nuclear Program involved two technical interviews with Naval Reactors personnel followed by a short personal interview with the Director of the Naval Nuclear Power Program (NAVSEA 08). The technical interviews were challenging but based on college level calculus and physics. Mostly dealing with problem solving and equation set up.

    There isn't one. Either you enlist and apply for Officer Candidate School (OCS), or you go to a four year school and either apply and complete OCS, complete the Reserve Officers Training Corps (ROTC) while at school, or graduate from one of the Service Academies (USNA, USMA, USAFA, USMMA, USCGA)

    Negotiation Details
    There is no negotiation phase. It's all dependent on completing one of the above avenues to becoming an officer listed in the Hiring and Interview Process section. None of them, by the way, are easy.

    Application Details

    I applied in-person. The process took a weekinterviewed at US Navy.

    Interview Details

    There is not a "typical" interview process to become a Naval Officer, and the exact details may vary depending on your desired commissioning source; however, regardless of the path chosen, you can expect to be interviewed by at least one, but more typically a panel of 3-4 Naval Officers. My commissioning source was OCS and I was interviewed by three officers: one Commander and two senior Lieutenants. After the interview, your application goes to the Bureau of Naval Personnel where it is screened by another panel of officers.

    Interview Questions
    • Not unexpected, but the most difficult question is "Why do you want to be a Naval Officer?" I've been on the other side of the interviewing table and asked this many times. It seems to be the question that gives many people the greatest difficulty.   View Answer
    Negotiation Details
    No negotiation – everyone starts at ground zero: Ensign.

    Very thorough, but rely too much on physical health and psychology. Focus on leadership style and ability, but are more concerned with how to get the job done when you get in.

    Interview Details

    See a recruiter for the best information. You need a college degree and one of a few programs. Military academies, college ROTC, or apply for several different programs. As an aviator, I had to go through extra medical screening and flight aptitude tests to qualify for my specialty. Other job specialty programs require screening. General purpose jobs or Surface Warfare Officers just require lots of tolerance of overworked daily duties and some study the program.

    Interview Questions
    • Flight training is a high risk job which requires lots of studying and flight aptitude.   Answer Question
    Negotiation Details
    None, pay scales and benefits are pre-defined. Your specialty and time in will determine most of your pay. Promotion is a different topic.

    There are no interviews for officers like civilian positions use...the emphasis is on education and qualifications which Officer recruiters can provide greater details. For those being selected from the enlisted ranks, there are interviews that will cover various pertinent topics relative to career progression and responsibilities.
