Very Easy Interview

IT Interview

The process took 1+ week - interviewed at Merck in November 2010.

Interview Details – HR posted position - replied with resume, asked to meet with HR people and IT people (presumed managers in the department that was hiring).

Interview Question – Discuss the cost and security implications related to "cloud computing". Being involved in the drug industry, HIPPA regs are a huge factor, requiring insane data security measures which are very expensive, and slow down the process.   View Answer

IT Interview

I applied through college or university and the process took a day - interviewed at Merck in February 2010.

Interview Details – Hiring process was very typical of large corporation - slow. Questions were very generic "what are your strengths and weaknesses" questions typical of interviews. Had a good conversation with both of the interviewers after the generic interview questions were asked.

Interview Question – Name a time where you had to convince a group of people to make a difficult decision.   Answer Question
