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. Hi

    Today i passed my recruitment test which I am really pleased about.

    My question is about the selection interview. I have read things on here and in booklets the RN have given me, but still I would like to here some of your advice. What is other peoples experience with them been like? Will you know the same day if you passed this part of the process?

    I am hoping to go in as a Warfare Specialist.

    Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

  2. Hi Benj, I had my interview two weeks ago. I found it ok to be honest. I made sure I was as smart as possible, clean suit, shoes, haircut etc.

    My only advice would be to read up as much as possible about the Navy and the role you wish to do.

    I got by result the same day and later on my start date for Raleigh.

    Best of luck.
  3. Congratulations on passing mate.
    Dont worry about the interview, like stepto said make sure you're looking very smart and read about a bit about the you are after.
    I found the interview very pretty relaxing to be honest, was more like a 'informal' chat for me.
    Asking you questions about your hobbies family etc
    Nothing to worry about at all mate.
    All the best
  4. P.s
    Yes they told me straight after i had passed
  5. wish i could say the same lol but i have to wait 18 months going in as NA(AH)
  6. 18 months!!! Bloody hell.

    I'm off in November!!
  7. ive got my RT soon, think i'l do alright. do you wear formal clothes or not for the RT?

    Stepto, you got your raleigh date not long after the interview, is this the same for everyone?
    I thought you got the raleigh date like a couple of weeks before you started?!
  8. fingers crossed im in november!!
  9. I'm due at Raleigh on the 9th of November.

    Joining as an ETWES.
  10. Happy Days!!!
  11. Had my interview a few weeks back. I was brickin it, but once i got sat down and started talking it was fine. Just a little chat, thats how I would put it. Nothing to it mate.

    Yes, they tell you if you've passed right after your interview. Then i had my medical.
  12. Thanks for the advice.

    I am still slightly nervous, but I guess this is to be expected. I am going to spend the next few days brushing up on my knowledge of the RN and the branch I have applied for (WS).

    It’s good to know that you find out if you have passed or not at the end too, means less worry.

    Any idea of how long after until you receive your Raleigh date? I was told I would be waiting roughly 2 month after being accepted.
  13. Passed it today... Well happy

    Next step the medical etc
  14. Well done Benj mate.
  15. Congrats Benj
    Im on hold, gotta lose a few more months in the next couple of months before they'll let me in!
