    Enlisted Military Interview

    Anonymous Employee
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. I interviewed at US Navy.

    Interview

    It's a big time process. There are a lot of forms and tests you have to do. Go to the recruiter, they see if you are eligible. You sign a bunch of forms, they eventually send you to MEPS, that's where they make sure you are physically able and you take your ASVAB. Your score will give you what jobs you can do. You select your job, swear in and get your ship out date. Go to boot camp, pass boot camp, do your MOS/A school training, then off to your first duty station.

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at US Navy.

    Interview

    Go to a recruiting station and the recruiters will most likely be very eager to facilitate your enlistment. Take the ASVAB test and score well. If you score well, Navy life is much easier. If you do not score well, you may not get in and if you do, your job will be painting the ship(rain or shine). Study for the ASVAB and do not accept the score unless you feel like you have achieved your maximum.
