    I applied through college or university. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Merck.

    Typical questions seemed to be very straight forward. They seem as though they are looking for you to answer in key words so make sure you can pick up some words from the job posting and use it within your answers.

    Senior Specialist Interview

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ months. I interviewed at Merck.

    Interview

    The first round was a telephone screening with their HR person - pretty standard. Then I had an in-person interview at the site. The in-person interview consisted of 4 individual interviews, each lasting about 45 minutes each, one of which was the hiring manager.

    We mostly went over my resume and experience, and had a good conversation about how the team envisions the new hire helping out with the team. One of the more relaxed interviews I've had. The whole process did take a while though if you're applying during the winter holiday because Merck has a year-end shutdown. From my applying online to my start date was about 4 months, which is pretty consistent with big Pharma in the area.

    Interview Questions

    • Mostly went over my resume, and why I was considering leaving my current position. There were some leadership / team questions and a few questions on why they should pick me over other candidates. Overall, it was consistent with corporate interview structure and pre-picked questions.   Answer Question

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 5+ weeks. I interviewed at Merck (New York, NY) in February 2020.

    Interview

    I applied online via Linkedin. They set up a Webex phone call interview (only phone call, not video phone call). I talked with 5 people. They are so nice and patient to me even though I did not speak English clearly. They told they will let me know their decision about whether I can be invited to onsite interview or not in the next couple weeks. But I do know I cannot get that opportunity due to my bad English and my bad performance today. Overall, highly recommend to apply to Merce and get interview from them. They are really nice!
