Co-Op Interview

Piscataway, NJ

I applied through an employee referral and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Johnson & Johnson in May 2013.

Interview Details – I applied online (this would be my third rotation with JnJ) and I heard back from a recruiter a few days later. I did an recruiter phone screen (to make sure I meet the basic requirements) that lasted 15 mins. I then had a interview with my future supervisor that lasted 30. JnJ is a great company. They love "Value-added Work" and how you can and will uphold the values of the beloved Credo. In my first interview, I actually recited the Credo (I know but you see I'm on my third assignment). I received a very good offer and accepted.

Interview Question – Behavior based...."tell me about a time where you handled multiple assignments on tight deadlines.." JnJ loves that question.   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – Yes, since I was returning I got to negotiate.

I applied through college or university and the process took 2+ weeks - interviewed at Johnson & Johnson.

Interview Details – Met recruiter at career fair and got invited for an interview shortly after. Fairly basic interview 35-40 minutes long. Mostly behavioral questions and a few technical questions at the end. Ex. What are the 3 types of cash flows and give an example? Walk me through a balance sheet (assets, liab., shareholders equity)?

Interview Question – What goes into making a pencil?   Answer Question

Reason for Declining – A co-op requires you to miss school. I just wasn't ready for it at that time.
