    Foundation Scientist Interview

    Difficult Interview


    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Met Office (Exeter, England (UK)) in February 2015.


    10 min presentation, followed by technical questions. Very dry format, interviewers seemed like they were basically reading off a script. After the interview, they let me spend some time talking to current employees, to help me gauge what the workplace was like.

    • Something to do with the ideal gas equation, I forget the details. But basically involved rearranging a formula while all three of the interviewers watched...Awkward..   Answer Question
