    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 days. I interviewed at Johnson & Johnson.

    Interview

    Interview was much more of a conversation than a formal meeting. There were no situational or behavioral interview questions, just questions on my experience/resume. Interviewer was very laid back and not intimidating at all.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 5+ weeks. I interviewed at Johnson & Johnson (New Brunswick, NJ).

    Interview

    First applied 7/2, after a phone, 3 hr long interviews back-to-back over phone and then in-person interview. It may seem long but I appreciate the thorough vetting in making sure it's the right fit both sides! Situational & credo based interviews related to role - be totally prepared for anything, have well-versed scenarios and know your resume. Could've been extremely difficult but I know my stuff!

    Interview

    Two interviewers at the same time. Very nice people and laid-back interview. All standard behavioral questions even though for technical position. There is no super-day, just a one time interview. J&J loves and follows their credo so know that by heart before you walk in.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Johnson & Johnson.

    Interview

    The interview process consisted of only one phone interview. Because it is only an intern position, the screening process is definitely not as strenuous. The first part consisted of all behavioral questions, eg. describe a difficult situation you faced and how did you solve it? After that, I had a few technical questions to test my programming competency. Non-language specific. All you have to do is explain your logic and that should be sufficient.

    Interview Questions

    • Basic behavioral questions and a few coding questions. Overall not difficult. As long as you are confident in yourself, you should be fine!   Answer Question

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at Johnson & Johnson (Skillman, NJ) in June 2015.

    Interview

    I found an ad on indeed and asked about the position. I was then contacted by a staffing company who managed the entire hiring process. I arrived at skillman and was interviewed by senior scientists. The interview itself was simple, no personality algorithms or high end iq tests. They basically just wanted to know about me and see if we'd be a good match. A couple days later contracts were signed and I was a contracted scientist at jnj.

    Lengthy interview process. Johnson & Johnson recruiters asked a lot of detailed questions with the hopes of extremely-detailed responses. Not particularly difficult to answer. Overall interview process was an average experience
