    Email Marketing Manager Interview

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

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at Merkle (Little Rock, AR) in November 2015.

    Interview

    Sent resume via their corporate website, got an email to schedule phone interview from their HR dept, had phone interview w/HR rep. We quickly determined my skill set was a bit broad for the type of linear work this position would entail. Very nice HR rep, good communication re: setting up interview, etc.

    Rather Not Say Interview

    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Merkle (San Francisco, CA) in October 2015.

    Interview

    The internal recruiter and people with whom I met at Merkle were wonderful. I met 6 people over a period of almost 4 weeks only to be told at the very end (after a 3-hour interview) that they wanted to give me the job but were told they had to hire from within the company. They were going to move someone from another location to SF but hadn't decided who yet. Why list a job and put someone through the interview process if they don't stand a chance? It's disrespectful and a waste of someone's time and efforts. I thought more of Merkle as a company. That really sucked.

    Accounts Receivable Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Columbia, MD
    No Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Merkle (Columbia, MD) in August 2015.

    Interview

    Initial contact was by email. I met once with the hiring manager. The questions asked were abstract "what-if" questions focused on interpersonal skills and my ability to get the job done in an environment that is constantly changing through acquisition and seems perpetually understaffed. The interview lasted an hour but I didn't get the job.

    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.
