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. Hey im new here,i joined to get some tips and pointers on what the interview will entail.

    Im joining as a 'warfare specialist' and i was wondering if anyone on this forum was/is in the same situation as i am now.

    What kind of questions are asked in the interview?

    Just some general adise would be great.

    Many thanks

    Tom, have a look through the Newbies section, lots of help and advice in there to get you started
  3. cheers thanks alot:d
  4. I joined up 32 years ago so can't offer recent experience but there is an excellent guide to the application process written by a young lad who has just gone through it. Have a read through it, if it doesn't answer your specific concerns then have a trawl through the Newbies section (which would have been a better place to put this post) and come back if you can't find what you need. I am sure someone better placed than I will come along to help you out.
  5. hi
    the kind of questions they are going to ask are :- (note there may be others this not a comprehensive list)
    1 )your famliy and friends?
    2 )why you want to join?
    3 )how do you feel about leaving home?
    4 )what other people think about you joining?
    5 ) basic training eg what you are going to to?
    6 ) they will ask about your 2.4Km run and the time you can do it in and what preperations you are under taking to get fit for HMS Raleigh.
    7 ) also what your sports and hobbies are?
    8 ) how long basic is?
    9 ) what trade you want to do and why:- eg AET :- I would join the FAA or fleet air arm as an AET. my job will be to maintain, fix and upgrade a chossen aircraft type. why?- enjoy fixing things, I enjoy working on engines (to be total honest I just enjoy breaking things and then wondering how I am going put them back together) after completing basic training I would then go on to do 6 months at HMS Sultan at Gosport.

    the other thing you will need to know is the what is called "the terms of service" the terms and condtions of service is on the royal navy website!

    I hope this helps you for wednesday, remember they are human, don't lie , they will find out! rememeber to dress smart and don't slouch and above all have breakfast, you don't want to have a rummby tummy when you are in the interview.

    hope this helps

    True, true.

    Following through during the interview is generally considered "bad form" also. :tp:
  7. Hi-

    Best of luck babe,

  8. Cheers everyone,loving the advice,just sorta revising for it now,tommorow afternoon at 2:00 pm.

    Also saturday going to london to tour an aircraft carrier,should be fun.

    If i pass the interview,how long after till my fitness and medical tests?
  9. For medical i think as soon as you are able too and the AFCO have one booked, once medical is out of the way you do the fitness within 28days.
