    Some of the longest prosses you will ever have to go. They test your phyical ability, mental ability, and you must pass a detail physical exam. On top of that you must sign over a 100 different papers in order to serve. After about a months worth of paper work they send you to boot camp where it is going to be the hardest 3 months of your life.

    E-4 Corporal Interview

    Interview Details

    No interview process. There are recruiters that constantly look for people to sign up but the interview process is really just physical, background check and ASVAB test. I can't say there is actually a legitimate hiring and interview process. The Marine Corps has tightened with it's requirements that need to be met to be eligible to enlist.

    Process is a long and daunting thing. Requires screening after screening, physicals, tests. Once you finally get through all of that it is not to bad. Be sure to have all your affairs in order, no drug use, tattoos all covered or tattoo waiver done, diploma or GED, ensure you have everything done.

    Had to go through a back-ground check, arduous physical, a lot of paperwork, and waiting time to go to boot camp. MEPS was horrible. Felt like cattle waiting in every line.

    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at US Marine Corps.

    Interview Details

    No drugs currently in your system? Pass the ASFAB? Good, sign here by the "X." It was literally that easy, they wanted to ship me off a lot sooner, but I had to lose a significant amount of weight, and did so over about 5 months time. My advice find out what your maximum and minimum weight is by the Marines standard for your height, and don't "ship out" till you are close to your minimum weight. Also make sure you are physically fit and not sick, and can do at least 10 over hand pull-ups perfectly without kipping.

    USMC Recruiter Interview

    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 daysinterviewed at US Marine Corps in September 2014.

    Interview Details

    Interview required quite an extensive amount of paperwork as does every billet/re-enlistment/extension etc. It's a tricky process as Marines are taunted with "meritorious promotions" as a way to lure them into sticking around. misrepresentation of the benefits. There are multiple boards throughout the year that Marines are afforded the opportunity to be apart of.

    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 12+ monthsinterviewed at US Marine Corps.

    Interview Details

    As an officer, the hiring process involves many things. The main goal is to try and disqualify you. 1. Background Check. 2. Extensive medical exam and review of all medical history. They will even call your doctor from when you were a child and get you medical records. 3. College degree with acceptable GPA. All transcripts will be submitted. 4. Physical Fitness Test (PFT) 3 mile run, 20 pullups, 100 crunches. 5. Friends and co-workers interviews and surveys. 6. Selection Board. All your requirements will complete a package that is reviewed by a board where you compete with all other officer candidates. You will compete with all the other candidates who are looking to join at the same time for a limited number of slots. If you are selected, you will attend Officer Candidate School (OCS) where there is a high washout rate. If you pass OCS then you will attend The Basic School (TBS) for 6 months. After TBS you will attend your military occupational specialty (MOS) school which varies in length based on the MOS.
