Finance/Accounting Co-op Interview

Finance/Accounting Co-op

I applied through college or university and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed 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.

Finance/Accounting Co-op Interview

Finance/Accounting Co-op

The process took 1 week - interviewed 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.

Finance/Accounting Co-op Interview

Finance/Accounting Co-op

I applied through college or university and the process took a day - interviewed at Johnson & Johnson in March 2010.

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.

Finance/Accounting Co-op Interview

Finance/Accounting Co-op

I applied through college or university and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed 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.
