Marine Corps Officer Interview

Marine Corps Officer

Interview Details Be in shape, be motivated, be ready. You will forge your future. Return forms and questionnaires promptly and do not make excuses. Take accountability for your actions.

Interview Question – Aviation Qualification Test was unexpected and I had not prepared. Failed first try, but got book and studied for second. The Marine Corps is not looking for fearless individuals, they are looking for calculated risk takers.   Answer Question

Data Analyst Interview

Data Analyst
Palmdale, CA (US)

I applied through a recruiter and interviewed at US Marine Corps.

Interview Details recruiters makes the process easy. There's a enlistment test to determine what jobs you qualify for. A physical exam, a back ground check, and an education check. You then enlist into the delayed entry program until you go to boot camp, then after boot camp you go to the school that teaches you to do the job you will have.

Interview Details depending on government budget and the recruiters qouta your the one being given the sale pitch...if it sounds too good to be true, then it is. get the promises in writing and amongst all things if you dont score great for the job you want then refuse to sign, you have no obligation and dont be a little girl and let their intimidation threaten you

Interview Question – The questions you dont ask...always question them because once your in they will certainly question you as far as your honesty and trust. this place is riddled with lack of trust   Answer Question
