    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at US Navy (Morristown, NJ) in January 2015.

    Interview

    If you meet all the requirements to join the military you are hired. The delayed enlistment program can be lengthy for nukes. I'm not sure how long the wait time is but in 2013 it was about 6 months.

    Interview

    The interview was a background check and a TON of paperwork. Would love to see this streamlined in the future. The required outfit for an interview is casual, no suit is neccessary.

    There are no requirements to become an IT in the navy other than pass the ASVAB. Graduate from bootcamp and then graduate from A school. After that, it's pretty straight forward to advance.

    Interview

    You go in and talk to a recruiter and they ask you a variety of questions. You will take the ASVAB and that tells you what jobs your are eligible for. Then you can travel to MEPS where they tell you what jobs are available. Choose your rate choose your fate. Educate yourself before you go.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at US Navy in March 2020.

    Interview

    Still waiting. Seems to have a quick turn around on the phone interview but the onsite seems to be taking a lot longer. Lack of communication seems to be the industry norm. Most of the work has been on my end.

    I applied in-person. The process took 6+ months. I interviewed at US Navy.

    Interview

    There is no real interview for the US Navy but there is an extensive vetting process to determine what type of job you will obtain. It is a smart idea for anyone that doesn't have a plan to join.

    IT Interview

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through other source. I interviewed at US Navy.

    Interview

    Long and drawn out, lots of tests and waiting. Best to understand what each job you are interested in is before going to MEPS as the job descriptions are not normally accurate. The people at MEPS are salespeople.
