    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 8 weeks. I interviewed at US Navy.

    Interview

    Extensive application review before selecting current commissioned officer in the job field. These recommendations are submitted for final review to a hiring board with limited availabilities. The catch,however, is that the annual periodic performance assessments are conducted by senior enlisted personnel. This creates a underlying rift between the employee and their immediate supervisors.

    Director Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in San Diego, CA
    No Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through other source. I interviewed at US Navy (San Diego, CA) in December 2017.

    Interview

    Panel interview via Skype. Depersonalized and uncomfortable. Could not gauge how they were feeling. I would have much preferred a face to face interview. It felt very robotic with no real interaction. Hard to see their facial expression or take cues on answering the questions. I did not like this type of interview.

    Nuclear Electricians Mate Navy Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Mayport, FL
    Accepted Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 4+ months. I interviewed at US Navy (Mayport, FL).

    Interview

    To become enlisted you take the ASVAB to see what job you qualify for. You then fill out a contract with what job you want and some background check forms. Afterwards you enter DEP (delayed enlistment program) until a space is open for you in your rate. It could be days, weeks, or a few months. The recruiter has a quota and will stretch the truth to get you to sign on the dotted line.

    Judge Advocate Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    No Offer
    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at US Navy.

    Interview

    Not allowed to disclose specifics, but it was a structured interview process focusing on the ethics and the mindset of the individual. "What would you do if . . ." sort of questions. As they are longer questions and are more time sensitive to think through and fully respond, they also are likely meant to test how you think and how quickly. I was allowed a pen and paper to write notes on my answers. I would urge you to not think so hard about the right answer or what they want to hear, and just answer honestly.
