got my interview

got my interview on the 10th June through phone.
It’s going to last 90 minutes for anyone that wants to know. It’s for CIS could anyone tell me what sort of questions they are going to be asking?
Also It literally took 3 days to get my interview.

It's OK, 'mate' is fine.

There are other things which will be discussed, One of them will be the RN's policy on drugs. How much will you be paid initially and when will your pay go up?

Be sure that you know where your training will be, the Initial Training and the Professional Training. How long will each one take and what kind of things will you do there?

Once you are trained up and in your role, what will your role involve?

Do you know the various types of ships in the Fleet at the moment? Can you give the names of some of the ships you've read about?

There is a good tool on this site which allows you to see what other people have been asked in their interviews.
There are many threads all along the same sort of theme regarding interview etc.

Have a look as some of your questions may be already answered by those who have recently been there.

Look for the magnifying glass icon at the top of the screen.

Worth a watch for a few tips
Make sure you are up to speed with where and what the navy are doing at the moment around the world.
Try and get a copy of this months navy news.
Gather as much information about the branch you are applying for, for example where you will be training after raleigh , how long your phase 2 training will be, what happens after your training, and try find what you will be learning about etc..

Name some ships and what they are capable of, and try find out what kind of comms they use that will be relevant to the role you have applied for.

Give some valid reasons why you actually want to join the navy.. Be more creative than the generic "I wanna travel the world chief"

Give as much background info of yourself as you can, prove you are a team player, prove you can lead as well.
They love to know what sports and activities you do out of school/work, let them know everything... If you don't do anything and your boring tell them you occasionally play 5 a side footy.. They won't ring your local leisure centre to verify this so don't worry :)

They may ask you naval rates of pay enrty pay etc.. So have that to hand incase.

These are just some of the things I remember them asking me but this was 2001..

I was asked about NATO as well so might be worth having a read up on what's happening at the moment.

Be polite and and clear with your answers, and don't be scared to ask questions too.. And if they ask you something you don't know, don't panic be honest and say you are unsure, show willing and tell them you will find the answer out and get back to them, Shows your keen and willing to know the navy inside and out.

Hope this helps a little bit, and good luck!

Good Luck!
Have a look at your terms and conditions. How long is your contract/pay/benefits of joining.

Make sure you know how your good (or bad) your fitness is. Run the 2.5km PJFT around your home and see what time you can get.

Lots of good suggestions above!
