    LSS Black Belt Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Carlow
    No Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Merck (Carlow) in February 2011.

    Interview

    job was advertised internally and on taleo.net.
    online application with online CV only.
    After ~3 weeks i was invited for a face to face interview.
    the interview was competency based and fairly predictable. panel of 2 interviewers. potential boss + senior manager. interview was friendly and open. when asked details of the position were explained including pitfalls and current challenges.
    note: response from hr after the interview was very poor. it took 3 months to get feedback, and only after insistent badgering. job was offered to someone else, but other applicants were not informed.
