    Associate Scientist Interview

    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Merck KGaA.

    Interview

    The interview was a complete disaster. This company and their HR department is incredibly sloppy. I did not receive the Interview Agenda until the Day BEFORE the interview after constantly asking to get it. The interview itself was run incredibly sloppily. The interview was 4 hours and it could have been done in 2. The first set of employees were not only late but also forgot they had an interview that day so they were completely unprepared. The duration of the interview consisted of us just sitting there waiting for the time to end because the employees were done asking there questions so they would have to wait like 30 min before the next scheduled employees came in to interview me. NONE of them were organized. I just want to let everyone know that this company shows a complete disregard for a candidates time and willingly wastes their time. I find the company doesn’t maintain a level of respect for a candidate and expects the candidate to be happy with just sitting around for FOUR hours during an interview when it could have been done in half that time. I literally took off of work for the interview and I regret losing money because this interview was ran so messily.

    Communications Specialist Interview

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    The process took 8 weeks. I interviewed at Merck KGaA (Burlington, MA (US)) in April 2019.

    Interview

    Probably the worst hiring process I have gone through. Went in for an in person interview and waited at least 5 weeks to hear back. A phone interview was set up with the hiring manager’s colleagues. After 2 weeks, I heard nothing and had to email the recruiter just to hear that the spot had been filled...poorly organized. Honestly glad I didn’t get the job after that experience

    Easy Interview

    Application

    The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Merck KGaA (Rockland, MA (US)) in June 2009.

    Interview

    I had a very positive experience both w/ HR managers and with the hiring managers. I had a phone interview with HR and then a 1 on 1 interview with the hiring managers on site. They primarily asked me why I wanted to work with them, what I thought were my strengths and weaknesses, and my availability to travel since this position requires some travel. Overall the people I met with were very nice, down to earth and engaging.
