    NOAA Corps Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Interview

    Very extensive application process. Included letters of recommendation, official transcripts, and three essays. The interview lasted 1.5 hours. Series of questions along the lines of situations and challenges you would face being on a ship for three years. There are multiple questions about how you feel being away from you family. Definitely prepare a list of questions to ask, because they will give you the time. NOAA will not help with any travel expenses, so plan accordingly. Also, get your application in early, because you will have more flexibility of an interview location, most likely closer to your home.
