    Finance MBA Leadership Development Program Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2 daysinterviewed at Johnson & Johnson in September 2014.

    Interview Details

    After an initial first first-round interview I was invited to conduct final-round interview with one of the VPs of finance. Both interviews went very well and I was able to establish a good rapport with both interviewers. They were extremely friendly and showed genuine interest in me as an employee.

    The sad part was they filled all their positions from last years interns.

    I was sent an extremely cordial rejection e-mail and encouraged to maintain contact with two of the people I interviewed with about the potential for just in time hiring after the completion of my MBA.

    Interview Questions
    • All finance specific questions were rather basic, but I was surprised by one behavioral question. The first part was a normal "tell me about a time when you were in a leadership position" question but the follow-on question asked "how would you handle an employee who failed to meet significant job requirements?"   Answer Question

    Application Details

    I applied through college or university – interviewed at Johnson & Johnson.

    Interview Details

    It was very helpful to attend the on campus information booths and presentations Johnson and Johnson had on my campus. Initial applications were cut by 50% to make the first round interviews. The interview was two one on one interviews, each thirty minutes with a couple technical questions at the end.

    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took 5+ weeksinterviewed at Johnson & Johnson in October 2012.

    Interview Details

    I got the interview through oncampus recruitment. There was an initial interview where I interviewed with a member of the Tax department. It was fairly conversational. Any questions were all behavioral. We clicked and about 3.5 weeks later got a call for super day in Princeton. However, due to Sandy this was postponed and a few weeks later we had the interviews with around 50-60 others in a hotel in Philly. There were team building events, a an assessment test, networking events with other JNJ professionals. it was 2 days long. After that the second day was 3 interviews at the hotel with 3 professionals. It was also behavioral. I was rejected approximately 2 days later by email. The company was quick with that.

    Interview Questions
    • Give me a time when you were innovative or improved a process. It wasn't too hard in hindsight but I was thrown off during one of the interviews.   Answer Question

    Financial Leadership Development Program Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Villanova, PA

    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took 3 daysinterviewed at Johnson & Johnson in September 2011.

    Interview Details

    Had 2 thirty minute interviews. In the first one the interviewer started the interview by asking me to talk about myself for 5 or 10 minutes. After that, she didn't really ask any followup questions. The second interview was also a bit unconventional, the interviewer just went down my resume commenting on my items. There weren't any stereotypical interview questions, though I was told beforehand that they were mostly looking for people that would "fit in" at Johnson & Johnson.

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2+ monthsinterviewed at Johnson & Johnson in February 2014.

    Interview Details

    Phase 1 - CV Screening
    Phase 2 - Quantitative Online
    Phase 3 - Two weeks later. Called for a 1 hour phone interview. Very friendly, professional.
    Phase 4 - Two months after Phase 1, got called for the Assessment Center in Zug. 3 interviews both behavioral and technical, then prepare for a group case study, then lunch, then present the case study and it's over.

    Interview Questions
    • A lot of behavioral questions, know these well and support them with examples.
      Here are the only technical questions you should be able to answer: How do you track the selling of a pencil in the cash flow statement and in the balance sheet? What is a pivot table? Describe the most important financial statements and which one is the most important one?
