    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Cincinnati, OH
    Application Details

    The process took 3 months - interviewed at Ethicon Endo-Surgery in May 2009.

    Interview Details

    Just completed the 3 of 3 phone interviews. The first was a phone screen which verified that I was the person I said I was. The 2nd was a general background interview with standard interview questions regarding project leadershiop, design examples, and problem solving. Something of a focus on working relationships and examples of problem solving.
    The 3rd interview was more leadership questions but with an engineering slant to them.

    Research Assistant Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 1 week - interviewed at Ethicon Endo-Surgery.

    Interview Details

    3 separate interviews with 2 people at a time, one interview was over lunch. Interviewers were very hospitable, providing water/tea and occasionally asking if I needed a rest room break. Relatively easy questions with a lot of discussion about the job and what it entails. Some 'typical' questions like 'name a time you faced adversity and beat it.' Only required 1 interview, even though it was around 3 hours long. I knew within 24 hours I had the job.

    Interview Questions
    • None of the questions were really that difficult, however I did have a hard time understanding a few of my interviewers due to English being their second language. They were understanding though and were patient with me when I had them repeat their questions.   Answer Question

    R&D Engineering Co-op Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took 3 weeks - interviewed at Ethicon Endo-Surgery in November 2012.

    Interview Details

    It was one round of interviews with questions about leadership, values and technical knowledge. They really look for people that fit the values of Johnson and Johnson, have leadership experience and technical experience as well. For the third one, they really look for college students that have participated in engineering clubs and projects where they are able to showcase their skills. As for values and leadership, its something that you have to show and explain.

    Interview Questions
    • For the technical question, I was asked to draw out the free body diagram for one of their devices and explain how it worked.   Answer Question

    Application Details

    I applied in-person. The process took 2 months - interviewed at Ethicon Endo-Surgery in July 2010.

    Interview Details

    Will take persistence to break through. Tend to do behavioral based interviews. Tell me about a time when, give me an example of when you, etc. They use the STAR technique. Situation, task, action and results. Make sure you include results. They want that and many gloss over it.

    • Tell me about a time when you were particularly effective in leading a cross functional team?   Answer Question

    R&D Engineering Co-op Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took a day - interviewed at Ethicon Endo-Surgery.

    Interview Details

    Interview consisted of two 30 minute 1 on 1 sessions with separate interviewers. 1st was behavior based, 2nd was technical based.

    The people that work there are very nice and approachable. The interviewers did not give off any negative vibes.

    Interview Questions
    • Behavior based interview was easy. Basically questions like.. "Tell me about a time when you faced an ethical dilemma and what was the result." All questions consisted of past experience. No questions like.. "What would you do in this situation.." which definitely makes it easier.

      Technical based interview consisted of the interviewer handing me a device and saying.. "Tell me how this works." As a mechanical engineer this was somewhat fun. I feel like I did poorly in my opinion, although the interviewer said I did great.

    Territory Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Los Angeles, CA
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 6 months - interviewed at Ethicon Endo-Surgery in July 2009.

    Interview Details

    My overall impression with everyone I encountered was that they truly cared about whether or not the position was a good fit for both me and the company. I was given extremely positive feedback and my last in-person interview with the hiring manager ended with an invitation to ride-along with a current rep. I didn't receive a call back after that point and then a week later the recruiter emailed and said they went with someone else. JnJ has contacted me 4 times since about other positions and I've had a similar experience every time...
