Medicinal Chemist Interview

Anonymous Employee in West Point, PA

Application Details

I applied online. The process took a dayinterviewed at Merck in July 2008.

Interview Details

I had applied for a medicinal chemistry job prior to getting this interview and was contacted directly by the hiring manager about a different opportunity. The interview was a full day, in 30 minute increments speaking with different scientists, mainly PhD chemists. They did ask many technical questions, mostly about the research summary I had provided. There was a dinner the night before with two associate scientists so that you could ask questions about the interview etc.
