    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at US Navy (Washington, DC) in October 2010.

    Interview

    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 Questions

    • 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. My NROTC advisor prepared me pretty well, so the interviews were pretty simple.   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    None. Take it or leave it.
