Selection Interview

Discussion in 'Joining Up - Royal Navy Recruiting' started by mandon75, Feb 9, 2010.

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. GET IN!! PASSED!!!
    I'm so relieved, all that revising has paid off!!
    Good luck to anyone who has theirs coming up, it was well worth it and I feel brilliant now :D
    RNAC sometime end of March beginning of April and I'll have to wait 2 weeks before I have my Raliegh date confirmed!!
  2. ME TOO!!!!!!!!!!
    and after all that revising Horatio Nelson.. i never got asked 1 questing on Naval history!!!
  3. Congrats. :)
  4. Funnily enough cracker, neither did I.
    I never got asked about, location of ships i.e. Haiti, priate's alley etc. or identity of ranks.
    I did however get asked about:-

    Clarifying what I had written on my application and security form
    Home life
    What my wife and parents thought about me joining up
    Who did the cleaning, washing and most importantly ironing at home
    Hobbies and interests
    Uniformed clubs I was a member of
    How our income paid for bills (who pays for what)
    Any credit card debt
    Did we intend moving home up to Scotland upon completion of training
    Support network for my wife whilst I was away
    What level of fitness I thought I was at
    What happens at basic training, phase 2 & 3 training
    How I would cope in basic training being around other able's half my age
    Would I repect instructors younger than me telling me what to do
    What a ET(MESM)'s job role was
    What skills and experiences I could bring to the role
    Process for leaving

    Hope this is of some help to those of you revising for your selection interview :)
  5. Cheers Mandon.

    All seems to vary a little so just going to do my best to prepare well thought-out and structured answers.

    Got mine in 2 weeks and weirdly quite looking forward to it!
  6. Mine was

    Family- who i live with, what interests we share, who does all cleaning ect..
    School- Fave subjects, least favorite subjects
    Social- anytime away from home, how i felt about it, what i do in my spare time

    then what influenced me to join the RN. Talked about what trade i was going in for. Asked me where i would do my phase 1 and phase 2 training.
    Asked if i were in any debt.

    Thats about it!
  7. Hi Officerlog,
    Just make sure you cover all bases, looking on here you'll find everyone gets asked different questions. Whatever bit you don't revise is bound to come up, they're not looking for a vast knowledge, just a basic understanding and to prove you have spent some time revising
