    Highly demanding.
    Quite political this is not a company that employs many people over the age of 50 in senior or middle management positions
    Has gone through many reorganisations in the last 5 years
    It's a company that still hasn't reached the place where it wants to be

    Positive Outlook

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Durham, NC
    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took a weekinterviewed at Merck.

    Interview Details

    I received notice of this job opening and the email address of the Operation's Coach there from a college adviser. After emailing the him my resume, he scheduled an interview for the following week.

    The interview consisted of him and another supervisor. They were incredibly friendly and welcoming. Since this was only my second interview out of undergrad, I was very nervous! However, they only talked a little bit about the company, asked me about things off my resume, some behavioral questions, and it was over. Took about an hour. There was not any technical questions.

    I received an email with a job offer with a contractor within 5 hours. All the background/drug test, physical tests, and skills tests are typical and was done through my contracting company.

    Interview Questions
    • Tell me about a time you had a conflict with a teammate.   Answer Question
    • What are your strengths and weaknesses? How do you you overcome your weaknesses?   Answer Question
    Negotiation Details
    No negotiation since this was a contract job offer. Plus, the pay was more than I expected.
    Accepted Offer
