Interview Answer

1 Answer


The HR person seemed very impressed with my qualification and work experience. The HR person asked my salary expectation as that was a pre-requisite for forwarding my resume to the hiring manager. However, my candidacy was rejected because I asked for $120,000 salary (negotiable) which according to the HR was extremely high for this role ( Note: Per the job description, this position requires 6-9 years+ of work experience). I found this very strange since as per the salaries mentioned on Glassdoor, a Merkle Associate Account Director in Baltimore earns about $113k - $121k.

(Note: The job title on LinkedIn, Merkle's career page, the automated email that I received plus the email from HR stated Account Director. However, the job description stated Associate Account Director everywhere. Such kind of a typo indicates ignorance, negligence and lack of seriousness).
