    Corporate Position Within Human Resources Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Saint Paul, MN
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Saint Paul, MN
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at Merrill Corporation.

    Interview Details

    Submitted resume through their website and heard back within a week to set up preliminary interviews with a recruiter. The interview was set quickly, and once I "passed" that interview, meeting in person was arranged quickly. The whole process was fast -- under a month from initial contact to offer -- and involved many of the people I am now working with on a regular basis. There wasn't a lot of superfluous stuff like tests, which I've run into with most other companies. The interviews focused on relevant experience, past roles and how I might add value quickly to the role. I had a clear idea of expectations and any timelines communicated during the interview process were adhered to closely. The interview style was largely simply conversational and everyone I met with (6 or 7 in total) seemed engaged in the process.

    Interview Questions
    • Because I have a slightly unorthodox career path, we talked about that. It wasn't a difficult discussion -- it just involved talking about things on my resume that I hadn't talked about in an interview situation in ages.   Answer Question

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Seattle, WA
    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter – interviewed at Merrill Corporation in May 2013.

    Interview Details

    The interview process was very slow and unorganized. Spent too much time doing phone interviews. Waffled on salary. Hiring Manager not in Seattle and waited 3 weeks before we could talk by phone. Did not come across as organized. Not sure what they were looking for. It's been 6 weeks and I have not heard anything even though I was told that I would be notified either way. Still waiting for a response. Thank you.

    Interview Questions
    • there were no difficult or unexpected questions asked.   Answer Question
    • My wish to all employers is that when you interview, please follow back up. I find it daunting, demeaning and unprofessional when you say 'we'll let you know" and weeks go by and we don't hear anything back. I've made several inquiries about the status of the position and I've been ignored. I know employers are busy but just a quick email would be much appreciated.   Answer Question

    Collections Administrator III Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Saint Paul, MN
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Saint Paul, MN
    Application Details

    I applied online – interviewed at Merrill Corporation.

    Interview Details

    Three days after applying online, I received an email asking what my salary qualifications were and requesting time to complete a phone interview. A few days later, I completed the 45 minute phone interview, and was asked to come on-site for an in-person interview. I had the in-person interview, and the manager mentioned that it may take a week or two to hear back, but the next step for someone moving on in the interview process would be a second interview with herself and her manager. Two hours after my interview yesterday, I was asked to come back for a second interview, and the manager also asked if she could reach out to the people that I provided as references. My second interview is Friday & I am very excited - I feel like this position is mine! I agree with the other reviewer - know your history!
