    Midshipman 4th Class Interview

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at US Navy Reserves (Seattle, WA) in February 2016.

    Interview

    The interview is with a naval or marine corps officer that will likely serve as staff at a NROTC unit close to where you live. Note that this unit is not necessarily where you will attend your undergrad because the interview process is in pursuit of the scholarship, which may be applied at any university (depending on what scholarship type). The officer will ask you basic questions about why you wish to serve in the Navy and what billet you may wish to receive upon graduation/ which warfare community you are most interested in. Overall, the process is fairly simple. Just remember that they are an officer, so address them with the proper greeting of the day, sit in an almost modified position of attention (don't slouch), and be very respectful.

    Interview Questions

    • Why do you want to serve as an officer rather that an enlisted sailor?   1 Answer

    CTR Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Pensacola, FL
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at US Navy Reserves (Pensacola, FL) in April 2014.

    Interview

    Military processing is a complex process that takes into account mental aptitude (Armed Services Vocational Aptitude Battery ASVAB Test), mental and physical health, social and employment history, as well as financial history and credit check. This 'whole person' viewpoint allows the Navy to search for quality over quantity and to develop leaders who will represent the United States today and tomorrow, not just butts to fill seats.

    Interview Questions

    • The most difficult aspect of applying for CTR is the financial review process. Credit history, including bankruptcy, outstanding debt held for over 90 days, and other financial problems can prohibit an otherwise excellent candidate from entering into the field.   Answer Question

    Application

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

    Interview

    Visit a recruiter. Plan on taking an ASVAB test to determine if you can get into the Navy and what career fields you quality for. Some Rates (job specialty) have nice bonus pay. Unfortunately, just because you quality for a specific Rate if it is not open you will have to choose something else.

    Interview Questions

    • Just be honest with anything you have done in the past. If you do not state everything and a background check shows a hiccup, you will be booted from the program. Gone are the days of just signing on the line and you're in. The military is getting more technical and they are looking for bright people with solid backgrounds.   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    No negotiation just a payscale. However, as you go up in rank your pay increases. Typically, in January there will be a pay increase as well set by Congress. Keep in mind - once you go on deployment where you are considered Active Duty, you will qualify for BAH (housing) and several other types of pay.
