    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Merkle in November 2014.

    I had 6 personal interviews, and then had to give a presentation to the group as to why I should be hired for the position. It was a great way to go about interviewing as I got to know a lot of the players in the department before making the presentation.

    Analyst Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    No Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Merkle.

    Interview

    Three rounds of phone interview.
    1) With recruiter, behavioral questions.
    2) With a director, behavioral questions.
    3) With someone on the team, tech questions about SAS, SQL and Statistics.

    The tech phone screening interview covered SAS, SQL and Statistics knowledge and I was not fully prepared for that. Not too difficult, and the interviewers are very nice.

    And I assume that my experience and skills are not a perfect match.

    Interview Questions

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Merkle (Columbia, MD) in August 2016.

    Interview

    I applied online and got contacted by HR via email about the position. Had an initial phone interview with HR about my background, salary expectation, etc. Got an email the same day for a phone interview with a lead analyst. The interviewer asked questions for more details regarding my experience on my resume that is related to the job description. Overall, it went well. The following week HR followed up again for an onsite interview invite. It was a mixed type including technical, behavioral and case. Had 5 interviewers and all of them were very nice and professional during the whole interview process. The behavioral interview session was about determining whether you are a fit based on company culture, vision and values. I felt that Merkle provides a work environment that allows the employees to work happily. Overall, the whole interview process was very smooth and HR followed up in a timely, professional way in every stage. Even though I didn't get an offer in the end, I got notified of the final decision very soon.
