    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Merck (West Point, PA).

    Interview

    There was a phone interview with the hiring scientist. We discussed my background and future hopes and goals. I was invited for an in person interview. I met with nine different people. My goal was to impress all nine and get the job. I gave a presentation and then had 30 minute meetings with the rest of the group. There were behavioral questions and technical questions. In general, the job and group seemed like a great match where we would do amazing research together. The interview did run long but we had great conversations. I over prepared for this interview, did a mock interview with a friend, and ran through a list of expected questions. If there was silence, I asked more questions about the group and projects I'd work on.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Merck (South San Francisco, CA) in March 2017.

    Interview

    The interview was just as usual. Meeting all the hiring managers. And then the presentation. What made me very unhappy with the interview is that there was no introduction of me before my presentation. The hiring managers left one by one during my presentation. By the time I finished my presentation, only someone I did not know showed me out of the Merck building.
