What candidates say about the interview process at US Navy

  • Administrative is out of touch. They don't have a phone, if they do the won't answer it. May emails when they feel like it.

  • Take a test, choose a branch, choose a job, get hauled off, get yelled at, make it through boot, and boom you’re in.

  • Long and annoying with a long wait, just like your future employer. You need to be ready for a secret and sometimes top secret security clearance, depending on your job.
