    SEM Analyst Interview

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Merkle (Charlottesville, VA) in October 2016.

    Interview

    Was given a phone interview. Recruiter seemed condescending most of the time. She said she would keep in touch but never called me back until I asked about my status a few weeks later.

    Analyst Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Columbia, MD

    Positive Experience
    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.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at Merkle (Charlottesville, VA) in August 2016.

    Interview

    After submitting an application online and doing a straightforward phone screening, I went to their office for an onsite interview. I was interviewed twice by two different pairs.

    Senior Account Manager, Email Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Little Rock, AR
    No Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Merkle (Little Rock, AR) in June 2016.

    Interview

    Received invitation for phone screen from recruiter almost 2 weeks after applying to a position in their Little Rock location (I was a remote candidate who would relocate). Was a fairly standard phone screen asking about my experiences. Rejected not even 2 days later. Since I was not given a chance beyond this, I don't really have much opinion on the entire process to provide. They do have a planned interview process that you can see more on by visiting their website careers section.

    Analyst Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate

    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.

    Director Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Chicago, IL

    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ months. I interviewed at Merkle (Chicago, IL) in May 2016.

    Interview

    Highly Unprofessional and a mix between unorganized people and disconnected top management. A phone interview where the recruiter asked me to call on an international number, which i refused to do so then they called me. Then more than 4 people got in touch each throwing the task on the other one for next steps. Weeks went by, timings for the interview changed, i had to postpone some commitments for them. Upper management interviews were a bit all over the place with the job description not clear and each explaining the job the way they want. Half of them are kind and respectful the other half havent even introduced themselves or what they do. If i hadnt googled them before I would have been talking to total strangers. It was really chaotic but the office enviroment seemed nice

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 5 days. I interviewed at Merkle (Baltimore, MD) in May 2016.

    Interview

    The initial interview was very easy and straightforward. They are essentially tapping into your skill sets to determine fit. The other group interviews are much more in-depth with a mix of peers and management. In the end you actually have to do a presentation.

    Lead Interview

    Easy Interview

    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.

    The process was somewhat relaxed, but interviewed by a staff who knew the position front to back. It was a very smooth process from start to finish. I would highly recommend this company to any of my friends after seeing the interview process alone.
