    Meteorologist Interview

    Anonymous Employee

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2+ monthsinterviewed at AccuWeather.COM.

    Interview Details

    First there were 2 or 3 phone interviews where they try to get to know you, what motivates you, and your meteorological knowledge. If you make it through, you are invited down to their headquarters for an in person interview.

    The in person interview lasts all day. There was me and one other potential hire being interviewed together in the same day. First we did a typing test, followed by a two day forecast for a selected city. They give you ~20min to do the forecast, you do it on their computers. They said we would discuss the forecast later, but I never did...

    Then they bring you in the the "main" interview. They ask you general weather knowledge questions, metar questions, and questions on atmospheric dynamics.

    After lunch (they bring you out to a restaurant) you take a few tests. One is some kind of personality/ethical test another is more meteorological questions.

    It took them a long time to get back to me after the interview. I think they said they send out the personality/ethical test and it takes a few weeks at least to get the results back.

    Overall:
    questions on metar codes
    questions on climatology values. ie. temperatures records at locations
    and of course meteorological questions!

    Interview Questions
    • Explain why instability showers occur over mountains first. (They asked me to explain it two different ways)   Answer Question
    No Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Difficult Interview
