Biotechnician Interview

Anonymous Interview Candidate  in  West Point, PA
Anonymous Interview Candidate in West Point, PA
Application Details

I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks - interviewed at Merck in April 2008.

Interview Details

The initial interview was by phone. After being approved an on site interview was set up. The interviewers were a series of 3 area managers or directors. Each of the three interviews took approximately one hour. The Interviewee is ranked using a point system that is tallied at the end of the interview. After receiving an acceptance letter, a medical evaluation and drug screening is performed. The entire process usually takes 2 months, but It was 29 days from first contact until first day of employment. There was a shortage at the time

Negotiation Details
There was no negotiating at the time. The acceptance letter included the salary. Now it is highly recommended that a potential employee negotiate if they possess experience. Recent graduates will have to accept what is offered.

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 6 weeks - interviewed at Merck in January 2010.

    Interview Details

    Was told that I was over qualified because of my Masters degree. Wasted so much time at site. I was interviewed a couple of times prior to this one for other positions at different sites. All of them resulted in the same outcome. I was over qualified from the beginning. I would not recommend anyone with more than a Bachelor's and 1year experience to apply for this position.
