    Senior Web Developer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Atlanta, GA

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at Weather Channel (Atlanta, GA) in December 2016.

    Interview

    I had a phone screening that covered basic concepts, then I was given a coding challenge that incorporated some new technologies, and then I was brought in for an in-person interview with the teams that I would be working with. I wasn't quite qualified for the position...We were both kind of stretching. They found a guy who knew their stack well and I didn't get an offer.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Weather Channel (New York, NY) in November 2016.

    Interview

    I applied online (IBM website) and immediately got an email from a contract recruiter. There were several questions about my background and skills. I returned it quickly and she called and told me she would pass it to the hiring manager and "with your skills there should be no problem getting an interview" and she expected to hear back within 24-48 hours. After a week I emailed to check, but no answer. Which is pretty common, based on the feedback here. I'm glad I didn't put any more time into preparing for an interview.

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at Weather Channel (New York, NY).

    Interview

    Very disappointed in the unprofessional and deceptive ending to the interview process. I am currently working full-time and Weather Channel reached out to me (via recruiter) to poach me from my current job. I took time out from my workday for multiple phone interviews and an in-person interview. I was given high praise during all steps in the process, especially the in-person interview. I was even told, point-blank and totally unprompted, that I would absolutely be hearing back from them *very* soon. As any interviewee knows, this is just about the most positive thing that a candidate can hear at the end of an in-person meeting, especially unprompted. I sent well-crafted thank-you emails to all involved and eagerly awaiting word.

    Several weeks went by without a peep. I had to finally assume that, of course, I didn't get the position. I was deeply and needlessly misled and apparently couldn't even be given a courtesy notification that I had been declined. It bears repeating that I was approached by them for this job, but I accommodated their needs and timing every step of the way as if I was unemployed and desperate. I would never want to work for an organization that treats candidates in this way, it shows lack of professionalism and respect at best and lack of moral fiber at worst.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Weather Channel (New York, NY) in July 2016.

    Interview

    Phone screen with a recruiter, on site with the team lead and then on-site with two more product owners. The scheduling was a disaster. They seem to be in disarray and desperately need more people on staff. Early on in the interview process I knew this wasn't for me because the lack of organization - it's mentioned in almost every review.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Weather Channel (Atlanta, GA) in June 2016.

    Interview

    I applied online and after a month received a call with a brief phone screen, and quickly setup an appointment for an in-person interview that week. Everyone was friendly and cordial. I was shown a sample of a project and asked to explain code line by line. Overall it went really well and I was told that they had a good feeling about me and to expect to hear back later.

    Never heard back from them, but I suppose that's just the nature of the game.

    Interview

    Applied from Linkedin and received the initial phone screen a month later. After a brief education and working background check, I was invited to the on-site interview a week later. All the team members are warm and friendly, I presented my projects to a VP and a director. After one week, I was selected to participate the second round on-site interview, which includes a Python data processing test, an ad-hoc data analysis project and a presentation. The whole process was intense but really interesting.
