26 Weather Producer Interview Questions
Question 1 of 26
What is your least favorite part of the job?
How to Answer
The candidate should discuss what their least favorite part of the job is, but ultimately should be positive about working through it. They should discuss something that they struggle with or dislike doing and why, but also talk about how over time they see themselves fixing that dislike.

Answer Example
"My least favorite part of the job is sitting in an office for so long while other meteorologists are able to get outside. However, I see myself finding more opportunities in this job to get outside and field produce with the other meteorologists."

Question 2 of 26
What is your favorite weather event you have covered and how did your forecasting stack up?
Professional Answers Preview
How to Answer
The candidate should discuss a weather event they have covered and how the forecasting measured up to the actual event. They should discuss ways that they forecasted the event leading up to it, and how the outcome turned out. This will show the hiring manager their quickness and accuracy of forecasting.

Answer Example
"My favorite weather event I covered was Hurricane Irene. We knew it was tracking up the east coast, and I predicted it would hit closer inland than the projections were suggesting. Sure enough, we saved a few businesses who previously wouldn't have boarded up their windows, and today they are still standing."

How can this station improve their forecasting procedures?
Professional Answers Preview
How to Answer
While the candidate should not criticize the current weather procedures in place, he or she should offer some ways that when they come into the office they would improve its overall functionality. Some suggestions could be from organization to updating graphics.

Answer Example
"When I get into the weather department, I hope to create more specialty graphics. While I think the department already does a great job of creating graphics for the summer and wintertime, I look forward to adding ones for specific events to keep the shows fresh."

Question 4 of 26
Do you have any experience in front of the camera?
Professional Answers Preview
How to Answer
The candidate should discuss any experience they have on camera, if any. Some weather producers hope to be in front of the camera one day, while others specifically choose to stay behind it. The candidate should discuss which one they are and how it will affect the job.

Answer Example
"I someday hope to be the meteorologist in front of the camera. However, I wanted to get my start in a weather department and behind the scenes is how I could do that. I hope to gain as much knowledge about weather behind the scenes so someday I can be in front of the camera."

Professional Answers Preview

Answer Example
"I studied in my undergraduate career to get a degree in broadcast meteorology. However, I decided to forgo being on camera so I can work solely as a producer."

About Our Interview Questions

Our interview questions are created by writers, almost all of which, have a long history of recruiting and interviewing candidates. They do not necessarily have experience interviewing or working with companies, careers, or schools, in which they may write for on MockQuestions.com. We do, however, strive to match their background and expertise with the appropriate question sets found on our website.

Our careers, companies, industries, and schools may have duplicate interview questions and answers found elsewhere on our website. Specifically, our companies and our graduate school interviews. For these two, we use the industry in which we believe the company most well-represents and the graduate programs, as the basis for the interview questions and answers that generate for each company or school.

The intent of MockQuestions.com is for our users to build confidence for their job interview, by using our thousands of interview questions and answers as they practice and prepare for their interview. We believe, most of our visitors can become more likely to succeed in their job interview with hard-work and practice. We believe, the key to success is for our users to rehearse with our interview questions while using our answer examples as an idea generator for their own interview answers. We strongly want to discourage users from memorizing our answer examples. That is not the purpose of our website.
