    Associate Director Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Marlborough, MA
    Accepted Offer
    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 7+ weeks. I interviewed at Merkle (Marlborough, MA) in May 2016.

    Interview

    5 rounds starts from phone interviews and ends at power point presentation to 5-6 people(these people also
    Interview you one on one, on one single day, before you give an hour long presentation that very day). So overall it's intense !

    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.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

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

    Interview

    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.

    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 5 days. I interviewed at Merkle in April 2016.

    Interview

    All day interview basically. Called on very short notice with not even a day's time. Impossible to do good or be prepared for interview when notice is this short. Not even any time to study job description. It was bound to be bad. No other company does that.

    After a few emails from a recruiter who found me on LinkedIn, had a pleasant phone conversation with her. Balanced chat between what she wanted to know about me and what I wanted to know about the company.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Merkle.

    Interview

    It was a phone interview, so I was expecting a phone screening to discuss my experiences and where I would fit within the company based on the openings. But it was a normal interview, not a screening. They asked questions about what I knew about the company, why I want to work there, etc. typical interview questions, so do your homework about Merkle and be prepared even though it is just a phone interview!!

    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Merkle.

    Interview

    Good interview experience. I had to do puzzles for the interviewers as part of my interview process, which was surprising at the time, but gave me a good chance to show my skills off. It was a long interview process in general but was generally thorough so I found that to be helpful from a job seeking perspective.

    Media Specialist Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Pittsburgh, PA
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Merkle (Pittsburgh, PA) in March 2016.

    Interview

    Applied online. Process took about 4 weeks - one phone interview and then an in-person interview at the Pittsburgh office. Received my offer within 3 days of the final interview.
     The first part of the interview was a panel of four employees asking a mix of typical behavioral questions and job-specific questions. The interviewers were very engaged and and probed a lot about my projects, internships and job experiences. Very conversational.
    The second part of the interview was a puzzle/problem solving activity directly related to the job responsibilities. It was challenging but the one interviewer who facilitated the activity was helpful and explained directions clearly. The point of this part of the interview is less focused on how well or quickly you complete it and more focused on how you employ critical and strategic thinking skills.

    SEO Account Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Pittsburgh, PA
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at Merkle (Pittsburgh, PA) in March 2016.

    Interview

    Most unprofessional interview experience I've ever had. I fly out to Pittsburgh and have a full day of interviews. 3 or 4 different interviews got canceled and 1 person (director) showed up for my SEO presentation that they had me prepare days before. Before I started she claimed she'd have to leave halfway through for a client meeting. No one watched the presentation.

    Glad I don't work there as Merkle and other "marketing agencies" are giving digital marketing a bad name.
