    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at Universal Weather and Aviation (Houston, TX).

    Interview

    Applied online through a third party listing. Minimal work history with bachelors degree. They called to come in for a typing test (standard is over 30wpm) and geography test (standard is over 70). Geography test consists of questions like: how many countries in the world (multiple choice, name the oceans, how many/name continents, etc. I passed the tests and was called to schedule a two part interview. First interview was with a couple of team managers. They just asked your typical questions about being a team player, leadership skills, dependability, punctual, transportation to work, what I know about the company already and what to expect in my role. Second interview was with the director and another manager. This interview was brief. What did I know about the company and what is expected of me. Was told to go take a drug test and was called to when to show up for training. Sign a horrific non-compete agreement saying you won't work for competitors for a long time if you leave.

    Negotiation

    No negotiation. You are going to be paid this amount. You get 3 automatic increases during the first 9mo and then it's a pretty standard raise process like other companies; performance based, how we'll the company is doing financially, etc.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 5 days. I interviewed at Universal Weather and Aviation (Houston, TX) in March 2011.

    Interview

    Initial communication was to confirm the information in my application. Then I was invited to the skills test consisting of a geography test, Microsoft Office 2003 skills test, and a typing test. The in-person interviews consisted of meeting first with senior employees and then a second interview (same day) with team managers. The questions were open-ended to get an idea if you fit their company culture, which is very customer-centric.

    Reasons for Declining

    The starting wage is non-negotiable, while there are pay bumps for new hires, having a degree is given no bonus in terms of pay, only in getting to an interview.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through other source. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at Universal Weather and Aviation (Houston, TX) in June 2008.

    Interview

    Fill out an online application. Then they'll call you for a 1 on 1 interview with HR. Then afterward, take a typing test (want at least 40 wpm) and geography quiz (largely because of its international client base). Then get scheduled with an interview with a manager.

    Negotiation

    Dont remember being able to negotiate since it is an hourly position.
