Logistics Specialist Interview

Anonymous Employee

I applied through a recruiter and interviewed at US Navy Reserves.

Interview Details – Visit a recruiter. Plan on taking an ASVAB test to determine if you can get into the Navy and what career fields you quality for. Some Rates (job specialty) have nice bonus pay. Unfortunately, just because you quality for a specific Rate if it is not open you will have to choose something else.

Interview Question – Just be honest with anything you have done in the past. If you do not state everything and a background check shows a hiccup, you will be booted from the program. Gone are the days of just signing on the line and you're in. The military is getting more technical and they are looking for bright people with solid backgrounds.   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – No negotiation just a payscale. However, as you go up in rank your pay increases. Typically, in January there will be a pay increase as well set by Congress. Keep in mind - once you go on deployment where you are considered Active Duty, you will qualify for BAH (housing) and several other types of pay.

I applied through a recruiter and the process took 6 weeks - interviewed at US Navy Reserves.

Interview Details – If it is totally out of your system, and if you never got arrested for it, don't say you ever did drugs. If it isn't, or if you did, then you might as well tell. Don't tell lies that can be caught.

Interview Question – I can't think of any difficult questions other than the one above.   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – You will be offered positions based on current manning levels for different positions. These change. If you don't get the job you want from the classifier, you can always say no. Do a little research about the different job "ratings" ahead of time.
