    I worked at Merck full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Very well organized leadership, all who follow the strategies from the marketing team.
    Messaging is precise and well thought out.
    Representatives are very well versed in disease state and competitive knowledge.
    Most of the sales people are highly experienced and tenured sales people.

    Cons

    opportunities are not "performance" based but on the subjectivity of the management team. Sales awards for stacked rank performance may not happen if you do not spend time checking non sales specific boxes.

    Advice to Management

    Stay the course with keeping a well structured marketing message. I loved the marketing team.

    Environtmentaly Control Interview

    Anonymous Employee in West Point, PA

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Merck (West Point, PA).

    Interview

    Very warm and friendly, informative about the hours and shift, salary and benefits. The interviewer wanted to make sure that I understood that I would be working for a Union.
    They went into detail about the type of work I would be doing and the amount of weight I would be lifting, and also had to have a valid drivers license, as I would be required to drive around the plant site occasionally.
