    Graduate Marketing Scheme Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in London, England (UK)
    No Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Merkle (London, England (UK)) in December 2016.

    Interview

    After sending off a CV and cover letter, I had a telephone interview which led to an interview in their London offices (travel costs not reimbursed).
    We had to prepare timed answers to three questions: "who would you most like to meet?", "what is something on your bucket list?", "what is your most prized possession?", and any one from a list of ten Google Analytics-based questions we were given beforehand.
    The group interview had a friendly atmosphere, and after presenting our timed answers we were given a fairly generic team exercise to complete. We were then taken into another room for individual questions with two interviewers, a part of the interview we had not been told about beforehand. The questions were more CV-oriented as they had a copy of my CV on the table, but I was grilled particularly hard about my "previous experiences with data," which, as my CV clearly showed, I did not have. As the requirements for the scheme were any degree course and level of experience (or lack thereof), I felt as though this was slightly unfair and that applicants should be told they require prior experience before applying for the job. Other than that, the interview experience was largely positive and we were made to feel very welcome.

The interviewers were very interested in what we were saying, and looked like they didn't want to be there which was very off-putting.

    Account Coordinator Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Minneapolis, MN

    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Merkle (Minneapolis, MN) in August 2017.

    Interview

    It began with a phone interview with the recruiter, then a phone interview with the Account Director that would be my boss. Everything was very positive and they each told me that I would be a good fit. Then, I met with the Account Director and another Accounts team member for coffee and to further discuss the job role. Again, I was assured that I was a good fit. Two weeks later, I received a call from a different recruiter letting me know that the team went in a different direction. I did not receive an offer.

    Junior PA Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in London, England (UK)
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Merkle (London, England (UK)) in August 2017.

    Interview

    interview turn around was quick with in one week I had been phone screened along with two inperson interviews.

    I was told in the beginning they were moving quick with this role. As I was keen I made them top priority to attend the interviews at short notice.

    I then waited two days to be informed ' I have bad news I’m afraid – the PA role has been put on hold until the end of October. Really sorry about this but it is a decision that has been made by the senior management over in the US.'

    When I asked if I was still being considered I didn't receive a response. This was not constructive at all and I would not recommend Merkle in the future.

    There were 2 phone interviews and 2 in person interviews since there are so many people who are a part of the interview process. They do a panel interview where a ton of people are a part of the interview and then discuss how you would fit in the company (work, culture, etc.).

    Senior Director, Account Management Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Columbia, MD
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. I interviewed at Merkle (Columbia, MD) in November 2014.

    Interview

    The interview process was rather rigorous. There was a phone screening with HR, followed by a phone screening by my future colleague. After passing the phone screenings, I had a phone interview with the head of New Business although I was interviewing for an Account Management role. The all day in-person interviews took place after. I met with members of the business development, research and strategy and analysis and account teams. The last part of the day included a presentation. I actually had more of a meet and greet with the hiring manager/head of Digital Account Management last, where I received a verbal offer.
