    Aviation Electrician Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Application Details

    I applied in-person. The process took a day - interviewed at US Navy.

    Interview Details

    Sign you name on the dotted line....if you qualify after taking the ASVAB test then you will have your choice of jobs, which the recruiter will go over with you. It's not a very lengthy process, but come armed with questions and possibly a friend or trusted person who has, recently, gone through the process themselves and will know what the recruiter is talking about. This will also not allow the recruiter/s to influence you into something you won't like or enjoy as a career in the Navy. Then you won't be one of the individuals who you'll hear saying, "my recruiter screwed me."

    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 months - interviewed at US Navy.

    Interview Details

    Applied to the Navy's Nuclear Propulsion Officer Candidate (NUPOC) Program through an officer recruiter after meeting said recruiter during a visit to my university. After a detailed application process, I was invited to Naval Reactors in Washington DC for a formal interview. This consisted first of technical interviews in the morning with two experienced engineers who had worked at NR for years. The more intimidating interview was in the afternoon, with the 4-star admiral in charge of the program.

    Interview Details

    Morally, Mentally and Physically qualified . Test and Dr;s review. Long days, of hurry up and wait for next process to start. Some unexpected delays and trival testing requirement. Must have 5-10 years of addresses, names, phones, schools, work, and references to finish background check paperwork. Expect the process to drive you nuts and in most cases never finish when you expected. in the end it works out if you continue to push the recruiting staff.
