    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.

    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.
