Marine Corps - Enlisted Interview

Anonymous Employee
Accepted Offer
Average Interview


I applied in-person. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at US Marine Corps.


Initially, one must talk to a recruiter about their interest in becoming a Marine. If an applicant has a college degree or, in some cases, some college credit, they will be referred to talk to an Officer Selection Officer (OSO) to determine if they are eligible for commissioning as an officer.

Regardless if the applicant wants to enlist or commission, they must complete a full 10-year background check. For those seeking a higher-level security job, the investigation goes even further in depth. Additionally, all applicants must complete a full physical examination. They must also be able to complete a physical fitness test.

The paperwork that must be completed is quite extensive, and can go as quickly as one day, but depending on individual circumstances, may take a couple of days to a week to complete the process.

Upon being found qualified, the applicant will be assigned a date to commence their initial training. This date, depending on current enlistment policies and available openings, may be nearly immediate to close to a year.

Interview Questions

  • Are you now, or have you ever been, a conscientious objector? In other words, are you opposed to engaging in combat, for personal or religious beliefs, or for any other reason?   1 Answer


There is little to no negotiation when coming into the military. Some people may qualify for enlistment at a higher rank, based on prior ROTC education, college credit, etc. But besides that, no much to speak of when it comes to negotiation. You either want to serve or not. Everyone starts at the bottom and earns his/her way to the top.
