    Average Interview

    Application

    The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Merck (Newark, NJ) in April 2009.

    Interview

    The interviewer appeared to be impatient. The interview questions were generic, and the interviewer did not seem interested in the responses. Candidates how are interviewing should focus and project accomplishments and what specific roll they played in those projects. The work culture appeared fair. There was one face to face interview.
