What is the salary for a Scientist II Microbiology at Merck? I think a contractor is hiring me for 75-85k, but when I look on glassdoor for the Merck site it is like $37 to $56/hr. What do I do? Is there any way I can get directly hired from Merck to get higher money?

How does the Merck interview/hiring process work? My wife interviewed there 2 weeks ago for a job and hasn’t heard anything… today she got an email from workday about “continuing the process”. The there was a link in the email that brought her to workday and asked about non compete and salary requirements. Is this possibly good news or just standard practice?
Great parental paid leave after new born. Many company holidays and year end shutdown. Pet insurance offered too!
PTO & maternity leave are very generous for the US!
Great health insurance and 401k matching.
Good 401K plan, fair vacation policy. Not a lot of options for healthcare benefits but it's still very nice
