Interview at last!

Discussion in 'Joining Up - Royal Navy Recruiting' started by Shay1991, May 30, 2013.

Welcome to the Navy Net aka Rum Ration

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial RN website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. Finally got my interview on Tuesday! Excited and can't wait. A little bit nervous! Any last minute tips for WE!? Thibk I've covered most things
  2. Don't go dressed like a tramp.
    Think before answering any questions.
    Read up o what the RN is doing around the world including the sand pit out East.
    Have a list of your own questions.
    Be sure what the job involves. WE, lots of sleeping. Don't be afraid to play the gay card. It snot yet compulsory but I hear its going that way.
    Good luck, relax and enjoy yourself.
  3. Ive got mine tomorrow mate for WE, slightly nervous but confident ive done enough research

    Try not to nod-off
  5. If they ask you about defect rectification, the answer is not "ring the manufacturer" or "get inboard down"
  6. Make sure you know how long Phase 1 training is and your specialised training, where is it? What will you do?
  7. Wear a suit, shave... Turn up early.. I was asked about basic training, Professional training, what start off salary is and what it goes up to , How many paid holidays I would get, What I would do at PRNC, what my family does, what they think of me joining, Why i want to join the navy.. He also asked me boat names and what classes there are... Just relax.. If you dont know the answer dont guess just say sorry I dont know... Good luck
  8. Might want to look up the names of some of the latest 'ships' too.
  9. Nice one thanks everyone!! And good luck tomorrow Chris
  10. All the best chris!

    It is.

    As we know, weaponeers get twelve hours kip a day. Any extra of a night-time is, of course, a bonus.
  13. Just got back, she said it was a great interview!
  14. My daughter is WE . She also quoted the 12 hours sleep a day is expected , anything at night is an added bonus. Typical, I thought for her to find a job like that. While the ship is in port she is also in the bar most nights as well . This is where our tax payer money is going /sigh . I think she mentioned she did manage to change a cd drive this week . Oh the stress of the WE job :rabbit:

    Yep, sounds about right.

    Marine Engineers traditionally drip about keeping watches and the fact the machinery is running at sea and mainly maintained alongside. Our preventative maintenance system usually causes more work: strip, clean, inspect, lose a few bits, re-assemble.

    WE kit tends to have fewer frequently moving parts & more static circuit-boardery. They generally wait for it to go wrong, carry out WNCBC (willy-nilly circuit board changes) to locate the fault, then ring the manufacturer to supply & fit the kit under warranty.
  18. One more thing as I'm not planning to go on subs will they not ask me anything about them. Like I know the classes of them
  19. Subs weren't mentioned in my interview
