    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Merck.

    Interview

    After I submitted my application, there was about a 2 week period until I had a phone interview with HR. About 2 weeks later, I had a request for an on-site interview (2 sessions of 2 interviewers each). They made the decision quickly, and I was notified a few weeks later.

    After I accepted the offer I still had to undergo a background check, drug test, and medical clearance.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Merck.

    Interview

    Was emailed by the PI about 2 months after submitting an online application. After the email we set up a time for a phone interview the following week, where we discussed the important aspects of the internship and then the interviewer asking a few technical questions. It didn't seem too important to answer the questions correctly, as much as it was for the interviewer to follow your thought process.
