    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Merck.

    Interview

    After I submitted my application, there was about a 2 week period until I had a phone interview with HR. About 2 weeks later, I had a request for an on-site interview (2 sessions of 2 interviewers each). They made the decision quickly, and I was notified a few weeks later.

    After I accepted the offer I still had to undergo a background check, drug test, and medical clearance.

    Interview Questions

    • Example: Describe a time where you had to work with someone who didn't get along with you.

      Most of the questions were generic interview questions.
