    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 6+ months. I interviewed at US Marine Corps.

    Interview

    The "interview" process for the Marine Corps is radically different than any other job. It begins when you walk into the recruiting station, and ends when you leave either Parris Island, SC or MCRD San Diego. To begin with, the recruiter had me place my interests in why I wanted to join. Several weeks later, during which time paperwork was processed, I was taken to do a health screening and Armed Forces Vocational Aptitude Battery exam. Following this i was offered a contract and a date to go to Boot Camp at Parris Island. This began the next and most crucial phase of the "interview" in which I and many others were put to the test daily for 13 weeks in order to make us into Marines. For reference see myriad movies dealing with boot camp. Upon successful completion of boot camp I was sent to further training in my job field. During this training I and my peers were evaluated consistently to document aptitude and progress. upon successful completion of these phases I was able to join my unit as a United States Marine with training in a specific job field.

    The interview really isn't that much of an interview and makes sure that you are a leader and can follow orders given at any time and place, you work around the clock for whatever is asked and make sure that it is carried out to the lowest level 100%.
