Nuclear Submarine Officer Interview (Positive Experience; Average Interview)
I applied through a recruiter and the process took a day - interviewed at US Navy in October 2010.
Interview Details – An initial accessions interview will occur, typically in college, through a recruiter. The interview is technical, focused on basic engineering concepts. Very simple. Recommendations are made to the Director of Naval Reactors, who will interview you briefly, asking only a question of two. This is usually a formality, as he will read your file prior to you coming in and most likely have already decided before you even sit down! My interview with the Director lasted maybe 5 minutes. The previous interviews, from two different engineers, lasted about 30 minutes each.
This occurs in Washington, D.C. at the Navy Yard. They will cover transportation and lodging.
Interview Question – The technical interviews were simple. I am a Electrical Engineer, so he gave me a circuit with series and parallel branches and had me solve for various qualtities. The other interview was physics based and a pretty simple free-body diagram, solving various items.
