    Engineering Co-Op Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate

    Interview Details

    Completely behavioral and standard across J&J's businesses, at least for the co-op positions. Interviewed at a career fair, and was offered a few days later. Needed to drug test for employment. Great place to co-op, it certainly set me up for long term success and I would highly recommend this position, especially if you are interested in Medical Device design or are a MechE.

    R&D Engineering Co-op Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Application Details

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

    Application Details

    I applied in-person. The process took 2+ monthsinterviewed 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.

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

    R&D Engineering Co-op Interview

    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed 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

    Research Assistant Interview

    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took a weekinterviewed 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

    Technical Writer Interview

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at Ethicon Endo-Surgery in December 2009.

    Interview Details

    The position was for a technical writer for product "labeling" - creating all content for product use, packaging labeling, and overseeing translation process. The first interview was with one of their corporate recruiters - I believe these folks are tasked with wading through all the resumes and screening potential candidates. The next interview was a 2 on 1 phone interview with the hiring manager and another department member.

    Interview Questions
    • If we had an opening in another department, would you want to move to that department or stay in our department? This was very difficult and unexpected, as I had not worked there, had no idea what the "other department" would be or what the opening would be.   Answer Question

    Interview Details

    most of behavioral questions. This is my first interview ever, so I was kinda of not knowing what is expected. At a few questions, I might talked too much on one topic, so 30 min interview ran out really quickly. The interview was held in a big hall, where you are surrounded by other interviewers from other companies hiring coop and interviewees. It is timed to be only 30 mins and another interviewee will come in.There are warning alarm 10 mins before the 30-min interview, which was really annoying. I think trying to keep your answer concise and quick.

    The entire process was smooth and speedy. Ethicon conducted two 30 minute back-to-back interviews. The first interview went over my resume, asked situation based questions and got to know more about me. The other analyzed technical thinking and how to approach solving a problem.
