    Naval Aviator Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in San Diego, CA
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in San Diego, CA
    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at US Navy.

    Interview Details

    First, get selected as an officer, via Naval Academy, NROTC, or post-college graduation officer candidate school (see a recruiter). You'll have to have done very well in school and be in great physical condition, and have an aptitude for aviation (per a written aptitude test). This will hopefully get you selected for U.S. Navy flight school. THEN, study hard, be mature and tolerant of stress, treat every day/flight like a final exam, then you'll graduate and earn your Naval Aviator flight wings

    Interview Questions
    • Are you prepared to commit to 8 years of active service in the U.S. Navy, after the 2-3 years of flight school?   View Answer

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in San Diego, CA
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in San Diego, CA
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2+ monthsinterviewed at US Navy.

    Interview Details

    The interview process is standard. Applications are taken through the USAJOBS website and initial contact is via e-mail from a Regional human resources agent. The HR folks do a pre-screen and vet resumes for basic qualifications. Those found qualified for the position are forwarded to the hiring authority.

    An appointment was scheduled by the hiring authority.

    The interview itself was straightforward. No trick questions. No games. Just basic interview stuff. A simple internet search of common interview questions will adequately prepare a person- so long as they possess the requisite skills to perform the work.

    Interview Questions
    • Again, there were no real hard questions, the most challenging one might have been: Please describe your two greatest strengths and your two biggest weaknesses.   Answer Question
    Negotiation Details

    Animal Care and Training Internship Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in San Diego, CA
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in San Diego, CA
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2+ monthsinterviewed at US Navy in June 2013.

    Interview Details

    It took a total of around a month and a half, to hear back to find out if I wanted to move along with interview rounds/find out if I was even being considered. Add on an additional half month to wait to see if they select you. They interview a season ahead, so during December for instance, intern spots for jan-may are already selected, as internships run over a 4 month period. Phone interviews are the preferred interview method and almost always used, and are highly convenient.
