    Interview

    I went into a room with four interviewers. They were very nice and asked STAR questions that are common. They also asked personality questions. It did feel a little intimidating since they were all on one side of the table while I was on the other side.

    Interview Questions

    There was no negotiation phase; the pay scale was set.

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Naval Surface Warfare Center (Indianapolis, IN).

    Interview

    The deadlines for the application process are pretty strict so you really need to stay on top of the paperwork. They give the option for either a phone interview or an in person interview which was nice because I was able to do the interview without missing any class. After the interview you need to fill out tons of paperwork before you can continue with the process, I spent probably 5-7 hours working through the different forms.
