    Associate Account Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Denver, CO
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Merkle (Denver, CO) in July 2015.

    Interview

    I applied with my resume on LinkedIn. I then got a phone call from a recruiter who did a basic phone screen then put me on to the next step with the hiring manager. The company offered to pay mileage and parking for the interview. The hiring manager wanted to bring me in for an in-person interview, which you can read about on their website. It was very similar to what the described. After the interview I wrote individual followups to the five people I met and submitted my expense report. Nobody called me to tell me that I did or didn't get the job. A followup to the initial recruiter was ignored. I did get my expenses back about 6 weeks after the interview, but I received no other communication from Merkle. I am giving them a negative over all experience because they said they would get back to me quickly and they did not get back to me at all. This was a full day out of my schedule and my PTO from my current job--the least they could do is reject me.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at Merkle in May 2013.

    Interview

    The interview process is intense and slightly intimidating. You typically have a phone interview and then a panel interview with 5-7 different people.

    Additionally, I had to give a presentation to the panel on a topic related to the role.

    Plan for 2-4 hours on-site, and a mix of different roles and personalities. Everyone is very busy so make sure your presentation is pointed and focused.

    Come prepared with a resume and additional means to present.

    Associate Media Director Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in New York, NY

    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at Merkle (New York, NY) in May 2015.

    Interview

    Merkle does require a presentation and 4 hours of your time. To put together a few slides will take another few hours of your personal time. So all and all it takes 1 to 2 full working days to go through the interview process including preparation.

    After a week and one follow-up I got a note from HR person that they did not have time to regroup and make a decision. I have followed up again and did not hear back at all.

    I don't think this is acceptable behavior. I believe a thank you note from Merkle for my time and effort would be not just nice to have, but essential. This is common courtesy, so not sure why they thought I did not deserve it.

    Interview

    HR team is great but the interviewing team does not know what they really want. Seems the interviewing team is very insecure about their own job so they don't want to hire. They will keep on talking about how many years of experience they have and how many years they have been in the company. I got a negative vibe after speaking to them.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Merkle in October 2009.

    Interview

    The interview was very technical both on the phone and one and one. General experience questions, then specific how tos. The interview took about 40 minutes on phone and about the same in person. There was no hands on, but similar to the phone. There were about 15 - 20 questions and it was more conversational than anything else. Just explain your responsibilities. I got positive feedback from the interviewer immediately, so i knew I got the job
