    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at Merrick & Company.

    Interview

    Interviewed with 2 engineers that lasted an hour. They did not provide relocation assistance for a company that claims to be involved in projects about national security. Asked me about my knowledge of Mathcad even though it wasn’t listed on my resume. Got the vibes from complains about Merrick.

    Interview Questions

    • Among other questions, greatest strength, How to use of Mathcad software (not listed on my resume), name a building code, textbook for steel and concrete design (I was surprised about them asking these because I explained to them from the start of the interview the classes would be taken for the coming semester). Working in teams and leading teams.   Answer Question

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a weekinterviewed at Merrick & Company.

    Interview

    The human resources people seemed to be decent at their job. Competent. The people I met with hardly asked me a question about me. They spent the time talking on and on about themselves. The oddest interview ever. No discussion of the company really, just self promotion even to an interviewee (so I can only imagine what it would be like to work there).

    I was contacted initially for a phone interview. This lasted about 30 minutes and then I was later contacted to come into the office for an in person interview.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a weekinterviewed at Merrick & Company (Greenwood Village, CO) in September 2013.

    Interview

    I was contacted and set up a phone interview. The phone interview was a 30 minute interview and asked me mostly behavioral type questions with a few project experience questions. The lady who interviewed me was very easy to talk to and made the interview very comfortable. I was contacted a week after the phone interview to let me know if I would move on to in person interviews. I didn't get to move on and my interviewer was kind enough to explain why (not every company does that).

    Average Interview

    Application

    The process took 1 dayinterviewed at Merrick & Company (Los Alamos, NM) in December 2011.

    Interview

    I may be speaking early since I just finished the interview a few hours ago but here it goes. It was a phone interview for the process intern position. It consisted of an HR person and an engineer. It took about half an hour. The HR lady went first and asked typical behavioral interview questions. The engineer went next and asked about my resume, classes I have taken, and programs I was familiar with. Pretty laid back feel, both sounded enthusiastic. The engineer stumbled over his words a lot but he is an engineer after all.

She took notes on all of my answers on a form paper and which was then passed off to a panel of engineers who would make the final decision. They asked me a lot about my educational background, my experience with certain software, and my work experience.
