    Electrical Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Ridgecrest, CA
    Declined Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at US Navy (Ridgecrest, CA).

    Interview

    Interviewed at Navair in Ridgecrest, CA. Overall, it was pretty interesting. Ridgecrest is absolutely small-town living, which I wasn't opposed to. I was there all day, but still didn't see a majority of the base. Seemed like a mix of really interesting stuff, and some boring projects too. No technical questions at all, which is generally a bad sign. If you aren't asked technical questions, don't expect to do technical work because clearly it isn't that important to the job. Was offered $62,500

    Interview Questions

    • All basic behavioral stuff. Explained some things on my resume too.   Answer Question

    Easy Interview

    Application

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

    Interview

    Medical screening and ASVAB examination to determine if I was qualified for position without additional schooling or needing to take a different rate. Your rating in the US navy is determined based off the score on the ASVAB and the jobs you are eligible for. You are then given this list of jobs and asked to decide what you want to do. You can take a prep course and retake the exam if you didn't qualify for the rating you want.
