    Average 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.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at Weather Channel.

    Interview

    Had several calls, which finally lead to a face to face interview. The interview was your standard run of the mill intro level questionnaire the hiring person was just readying of a piece of paper. After my one time that I came in I waited a month to hear back, later finding that is at least standard practice. Finally, the phone rang and I was asking if I wanted the job.

    Media Manager Interview

    Negative Experience

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Weather Channel (New York, NY) in August 2013.

    Interview

    I had a phone interview with the HR Director out of Atlanta and then met with 4 people in the NYC office. I was informed by HR to research the company and read up on the four people I would interview with. Since the position was with a newly created department there wasn't that much information out there. I reviewed their linked-in profiles and read up on the 6-7 articles written about the tool that The Weather Channel was to created. 3 out of the 4 people I met with, the interview went well. They asked my background and explained the position with more detail. One of the interviews was with this woman Amanda. She asked the most absurd questions Ive ever experienced. She even told me that the only reason why she landed this position was because the person who just got hired to be the director of the department use to work with her at another marketing firm. They both left and she ended up at JP Morgan and hated it. She even told me she wasn't really into weather and didn't understand the obsession with it.

    3D Multimedia Designer Interview

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Weather Channel (Atlanta, GA) in February 2007.

    Interview

    The hiring and interview process was very quick and very easy. Honestly, it seemed to be the best interview I've ever had. All the parties that were to have a decision in hiring me were in on the very first group/panel interview. It seemed streamlined and well thought out. Information was given to me to help me make a good decision about working there too. Everything was out on the table and there were no head games. It was fantastic!

    Negotiation

    The negotiation phase was pretty good. There wasn't much latitude either way but the initial offer was quite fair to begin with.

    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Weather Channel (New York, NY) in October 2010.

    Interview

    Started with phone interview with in-house recruiter. Moved along to a series of interviews with director, VP and SVP. This is clearly a knowledgeable and motivated crowd and that's what got me excited. I made a mock presentation - nervous as a cat - but made it through. Got the offer and was pleased with the comp plan. Who wouldn't want more but I'm doing well compared to peers I have worked with previously.

    Interview

    Very quick, clear, streamlined process. Team lead called me and had a phone interview. At the end of it, he invited me for an interview with him, and his boss. The interview took about 1.5 hours total, The two of them asked me technical questions growing in difficulty in several categories, until then either they did not know what else to ask or I did not know what else to say. After they showed me around, showed the labs and the TV Studio downstairs. I had lunch meeting with another team lead there, and after they made me an offer. I've been working there for 7+ years.

    Negotiation

    have to negotiate, but the offers are generally pretty good to start with, so there is not a lot of room.
