- Application Details
I applied online. The process took 2+ months – interviewed 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.
