Correction there hauss - it's Chief Petty Officer (minus the First Class).
Master Chief Petty Officer (MCPO) = E9
Senior Chief Petty Officer (SCPO) = E8
Chief Petty Officer (CPO) = E7
First Class Petty Officer (typically LPO for Leading Petty Officer) = E6
Second Class Petty Officer = E5
Third Class Petty Officer = E4
Airman / Seaman / Fireman = E3
Airman / Seaman / Fireman Apprentice = E2
Airman / Seaman / Fireman Recruit = E1
The Navy doesn't officially recognize NCO status - but typically First Class Petty Officers (E6) and above are considered NCO.
