    Application

    I applied online – interviewed at Merck.

    Interview

    I applied through their website. I received a phone interview from Human Resources to confirm identity and application information. Shortly after, a phone interview was scheduled with the hiring manager. The interview itself was more discussion based and centered on my current research. They also asked questions regarding my technical skill sets. All communication after the phone interview was done through email.

    Interview Questions

    • Do you have experience using HPLC and mass spectrometry? What did you use it for?   Answer Question
