    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took a weekinterviewed at Johnson & Johnson in October 2014.

    Interview Details

    Applied through my school's database after a career fair, was invited to interview- interviewed with a senior financial analyst who didn't seem to interested in interviewing me at first.. but it went well. They asked many behavioral questions "what would you do if you couldn't do __" and in this situation -- blah blah blah. They did ask about the pencil production costs and stuff.

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Johnson & Johnson in March 2014.

    Interview Details

    The questions were mainly behavioral. Johnson & Johnson certainly looks for people that fit into their company culture so do research to make sure you feel as if you would fit in. Some questions included how did you work around an issue in a team, discussing former work experience, and how you deal with an unexpected change in your schedule (essentially dealing with stress). Overall, just prepare for the interview by reading up on how to answer general interview questions. The interview has 2 people interviewing you at once.

    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took a dayinterviewed at Johnson & Johnson.

    Interview Details

    Interviewed with two different professionals who were not in the HR department. The interview consisted of a majority of behavioral questions asking about background, ethics, etc and then the follow up consists of technical questions. Be sure to emphasize the credo, which Johnson and Johnson holds to in all parts of their business.

    The process took a weekinterviewed at Johnson & Johnson in September 2011.

    Interview Details

    Not as bad as I expected. While in the waiting room there was a former co-op who now works at J&J in the FLDP program. I struck up a conversation with her and she was very knowledgeable about how co-ops work. Friendly interviewers who want you to do well. Consisted of two 15 minute interviews each 1:1 with an interviewer. There were some finance and accounting questions.

    Go prepared, it goes a long way to helping your confidence.

    Interview Details

    Know your stuff for accounting. Even though I was a finance major they asked me a couple technical questions so its important to have a good memory for basic accounting principles. Overall a really good experience, they are friendly people and will help you along the way. Could relate easily. Just a couple years out anyways.

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Johnson & Johnson in February 2010.

    Interview Details

    It was an interview with two interviewers. The night before they held a information session which allowed us to meet and greet with all the possible interviewers (However, we did not know who would be interviewing us). They were all very nice and fairly laid back. I thought the interview went well, however I was lacking "Leadership." I was called about another co-op roughly 2 weeks later and I will be interviewing for that with JnJ next week.
