Im very nervous for my interview as anyone would be. Revising and revising but im woried if i mkss something. What kind of questions did they ask you and how long did it last? Also struggling to find victory gate on the map it keeps throwing up the dockyard (which i know is part of HMNB Portsmouth).
Victory Gate is gate you go into for the Historic Dockyard - down by The Hard, if you're getting the train down get off at Portsmouth Harbour as it's about 150m from the station. If you're driving there's a car park in Gunwharf Quays (around 500m from the gate), go to the casino for 5 minutes and get your parking validated so it's free.
Questions where along the lines of what the RFA do, how many ships, what ships, what the role is, how you handle pressure, why you want to join, how long training is, where it is, expectations of accommodation, expectations of how to use downtime at sea.
I just made sure I gave examples to back up what I've said, to show that I can do it in practice.
What about personal questions family, school, work history, what good/bad equalities you have? Are you a team player/leadership give examples. Hobbies?
Thats questions i have read online that are most common interview questions.
Also did they ask about current affairs/operations because i have read up alot about them.
They asked some of those questions too - this year was my 2nd interview and I ended up with the same interviewers which was quite nice! They ask you to talk about yourself to give them a bit of background of who you are, after all they need to work out if you're not only suitable to do the job but also a good fit.
Yeah they did ask me what I knew about any previous or current ops. I just used the RN website and my own personal knowledge for that kind of stuff, if you google for the RFA you can get a bit of information.
They'll also ask you about what methods of comms can be used.
