    Recruiter contacted me and then conducted an interview over the phone to ensure that I met the basic qualifications of the Marine Corps.

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at US Marine Corps (Dublin, GA (US)).

    Interview

    Time consuming, very in depth. It included police check, drug screening, and a physical exam. All applicants are required to take an exam to see what jobs you are qualified for. The recruiter was the only way to get to the interview process. Some parts are very invasive, as that some jobs require a clearance to work in them.

    Interview

    Some job application systems, such as the US government’s USAJobs, have functionality built into the system allowing applicants to see how their applications are progressing through the organization’s hiring processes. This reduces the number of phone calls and e-mails the human resources department receives because applicants can look up critical information for themselves within a minute or two.

    Not really an interview. They try to talk you into working for the company. In fact, they almost lie to get you to work there. After, you sign your contract, they then take you to MEPS to see If you meet the entry requirements. Then a few days later, you are off to boot camp. Then after 3 month+- of misery. You become a boot. Then after you deploy to Iraq/Afghanistan, you become a real Marine.

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 11+ monthsinterviewed at US Marine Corps.

    Interview

    Go into the recruiting office talk about how you want to be unmatched in awesomeness or you just want free college. Most people either don't know why they want to join or they go to be a grunt. But the types of people they're letting into the Infantry nowadays is way below the standard that I was held to.

    Negotiation

    You just need to find a job you want and whether or not there's an opening or not. And then you wait a year to go to bootcamp.
