    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at US Navy (San Diego, CA) in January 2013.

    Interview

    There is no interview per say. You advance via an advancement test and for some ranks you must go through a selection process. YOu need to be prepared to play politics and conform to the politics of those selecting you or advancement can be long and hard. You have to be fit in your personal dealings and finances, physical condition, and must in most cases have attended further training and college courses in order to advance.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at US Navy in December 2011.

    Interview

    Intense, boot camp followed with training and more training and more training. You never actually stop the interview process because you can get kicked out for not meeting certain approval criteria. For example one cannot retire as an E5, so there for you have to make E6 to be able to retire at 20 years before you receive retirement pay.

    It took 6 months of exercise, diet, paperwork and a clean record to get in. It also required an IQ test of sorts and a physical. You will also be expected to workout and learn as a team with your fellow prospective recruits.

    Interview

    You take an exam and then after so many years you eventually get picked up or you get kicked out it is the way it is. I do not like the way the navy promotes you get a lot of leaders that have no clue how to lead

    Took the Armed Services Vocational Aptitude Battery in high school and was contacted by the recruiter.
