ET(ME) Interview

#1
Hi guys,

Currently doing some prep for my interview which is on the 18th. Ive had a good read through ninja's post here and so far ive covered;

- All type of ships that are on the RN website.

- Basic knowledge of what goes on at Raleigh (Basic seamanship skills, PT, Weapons handling, Drill, Teamwork etc etc. . . )

- What goes on at HMS Sultan in phase two (Learn about machinery on ships; Anything from engines to air con units etc)

- What ET(ME)'s do (Work on everything from Ships hull to Engines to Hydraulic systems. Firefighting teams, Damage control and RAS teams)

- Pay

- How soon I can leave. @ Basic once contract is signed and you decide you want to leave you must serve a further two weeks to see if you change your mind. And after 6months service you must complete minimum of three and a half years service before handing in your notice (Can someone please confirm this is correct as im unsure)

Is there anything im missing that i really shouldn't be ?
Ive only ever been for one interview and im not really comfortable with them :oops:

Sorry if im being a complete tosspot, i just want to make sure i go in knowing that ive took on as much info as i can.

Hi,

That's pretty much all you need to know. When I had my interview, what you included here is pretty much most of what was covered.

The rest is just down to interview technique and giving a good impression to the CA. Obviously, wear a suit, polish your shoes, be polite (good manners are important).

Good luck!

Cheers for your reply joe, the manners are a no brainer every time i pop into my AFCO and the suit shoes etc will be betting sorted towards the end of the week :)

Good luck for it, you seem to be well prepared.

I was bricking it when i had mine but as long as you are prepared it is no problem. I got asked a question that i was unsure about and i said that i wasn't sure, don't try to bodge your way through, honesty is the best way.

Yeah, im going to do that. If he ask's a question i have no clue about at all ill either say, ' im unsure or i dont know '

I still feel im missing something though, i think im going to brush up on a bit of current affairs, what the navy are doing today etc.

Hopefully that should be enough :)

Unfortunately no, but that would be convenient :lol:
Im not bothered, to be honest i actually cant wait to get out of here and start exploring the world :)

Hey Trig, the one question that made me stop and think was, 'what have you done in your life you are embarrassed about?'. I didn't know where to start on that one!! 8O

I pissed my pants during a karate lesson when I was 5.

I still feel the shame now.

About 12 months ago I was in the martial art class I attend. For some reason I had a pair of knickers lodged down my trouser leg. I done a front kick, and the knicker flew out hitting the person in the back of the head in front of me. I didn't tell my careers officer this one though. :D
