The people are Merck are nothing more than garbage in what was once a great company. I would think twice before taking a job at Merck. I have to interview them. They are not the sharpest tools in the shed. If you have a job, keep it. It is to the point right now where companies will avoid the Merck name altogether.

drug of choice at Merck is anti anxiety and anti depressants, literally half of our employees are on them, its a fact. For what ever reason, its seen as more acceptable. Maybe when we make a Merck Martini for sale, alcohol will be the drug of choice. and we all live in glass houses.

congrats on your sobriety, you might want to have a good story in your back pocket about how far you've come. Just in case.

When I was hired about 12 years ago, the only thing they would overlook on a background check was a DUI. Not sure about 2 or if they still do it but, as others said, it won't look good and will certainly show up.

Good luck and let us know if you're crazy enough to take a job in chaos.

Maybe you should get some help - the bigger issue is why do you keep drinking and endangering others by driving? That shows really bad judgement and in Merck's defense, I hope they don't hire you. No offense but you sound a bit unbalanced.
2DUI's = >95% certainty of alcoholism. Good luck with everything.
