    Positive Experience

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at US Marine Corps.

    Interview

    I enlisted; did not necessarily interview. I was accepted after passing a detailed background check and passing both physical and intellectual tests. The impact of facing a new culture was the most difficult part. The discipline and expectation to transform into a professional warrior who stands in the gap and is willing to die for the freedoms we all enjoy was critical in becoming a Marine.

    Quality Assurance Manager Interview

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at US Marine Corps (Huntsville, AL).

    Interview

    Go to a recruiter and tell them that you want to join. Think long and hard about the process because you don't know if it will be 4 years or 20 years so you have to be dedicated to the cause. Ensure that you have your self together before you join because we cannot fix in 3 months what your mom didn't fix in 18 years.

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at US Marine Corps.

    Interview

    I was called due to good ASVAB scores. I was eligible for any job I wanted. Since I was looking to leave right after high school, I was too young to be and MP. I said that I wanted to do James Bond stuff. The recruiter led me to the intelligence field. I have been doing it ever since. He was also not pushy.

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at US Marine Corps.

    Interview

    There is no interview process. Show up, figure out what job you could picture yourself doing (infantry is the best IMO) and go about doing all the necessary paperwork in order to sign your life away for four years. Remember that.
