    Go to MEPS, take the ASVAB, and pick a job. No real interview required. You do the ASVAB one day then come back to pick your job and everything else. It only takes about a day or so to do the background screening, physical exam, and choose your job.

    Interview

    There was no interview process. The recruiter told me what I needed to do and I did it. This involved many different forms of paperwork to include places I lived. I also had to provide a sample of my urine to make sure I didn't take drugs.

    Nuclear Submarine Officer Interview

    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at US Navy (Washington, DC).

    Interview

    Interview consists of 2 or 3 roughly hour-long technical interviews examining both your ability to answer fairly basic calculus and physics questions as well as your ability to think on your feet without giving up. After this is a brief interview with the admiral in charge of the Navy Nuclear Propulsion Program. Advice as someone who prepped interviewees: learn principles not problems and NEVER GIVE UP. If you really have no idea then start with F=MA or something equally basic and work from there. If you study enough then you should have an endless arsenal of vaguely related equations or concepts to play with rather than just staring at the paper in panic.

    Interview Questions

    • 1. Find the volume of this cup on my desk.
      2. Teach me something.
      3. Two people start running at two given rates in opposite directions around a running track. How many times do they pass each other before the faster runner completes 2 miles?   Answer Question
