    LAR Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Somerville, NJ
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Somerville, NJ
    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter – interviewed at Ethicon in June 2014.

    Interview Details

    I was contacted through Kelly Services, where they gave my resume to their client (Ethicon) who was interested, and wanted to bring me in for a face to face interview. The interview process was perhaps a little nerve racking because it was an interview with about 5 different women who held different roles within the company, all of which whom I would be working amongst eventually. Two of the girls really put me at ease, saying they thought i would be a great fit for the position based on my college experience and my internship and volunteer experience, however I was told by the recruiter that there was another man going for the same position I was, who had several years of laboratory experience dealing specifically with swine, while I had only had 6 months experience dealing with them.

    Engineering Co-Op Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Somerville, NJ
    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took a dayinterviewed at Ethicon in January 2011.

    Interview Details

    My step-grandfather used to work in R&D here, so was able to put me in contact with a director in Operations Integration. After a few emails, we set up an interview. I went through 4 or 5 consecutive 30 minute interviews with engineers that worked in the department, including two different directors in the department. The interviews were all behavioral, and pretty basic. One of the engineers did ask a few basic questions about engineering principles, but, even though I was not prepared to answer them, I was able to answer them correctly with only 1 year and 1 semester of my mechanical engineering degree under my belt. Everyone was extremely friendly, and the office environment is extremely laid-back, but only if you're getting your work done efficiently and effectively.

    Sterilization Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in San Angelo, TX

    Application Details

    The process took a dayinterviewed at Ethicon in October 2009.

    Interview Details

    It depends on who you get for your interview. The guy that interviewed mostly talked about the history of the city and explained what a sterilization engineer does and asked if it sounded interesting. I actually did not expect an offer from this company but got one anyways just because the interview did not feel traditional or in depth.

    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Ethicon.

    Interview Details

    In order to get into Johnson & Johnson you MUST network as much as possible. I started out asking people I knew within Johnson & Johnson for "informational interviews" just to get their perspective on working at J&J and what their job entailed. Just helped to get to know some inside people. Then I set job alerts on the site and when a position I was qualified for came up, I called some contacts and asked their opinion, they would almost always end up sending me an internal referral which helped me land an interview. The interview process starts with an HR call, then an interview with the hiring manager, then an interview with both the hiring manager and the regional business director.

    Interview Details

    The hiring process was good really. All I did was give my resume at the job fair and applied online. A few days later I received a call for an interview. Once I passed the interview they called me about 2 days later to give me an offer. Once I accepted the offer via telephone they sent me the real offer via email about two weeks after the call.

    Principal Scientist Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2+ monthsinterviewed at Ethicon in June 2010.

    Interview Details

    The interview process was very straightforward and professional. The main HR person kept in regular contact to inform me of where they were in the process and what the next steps would be. The first step was an HR screen. That was followed by a conversation with the hiring manager. In both conversations, it was very clear that they were interested in making sure the position was a good match for both parties. In addition, the conversation was fairly evenly divided between them asking questions and me being able to do the same. In contrast to many other companies, salary wasn't a topic of conversation in the initial phone interviews. They focused on technical skills, knowledge and situational questions. A substantial number of other companies spent most of the time talking about the company and asking me about salary expectations - difficult to do if you don't really know what the job really entails.

    The on site interview lasted a full day and consisted of many 1 on 1 interviews, a presentation and lunch with the hiring manager, followed by more interviews. Everyone I met was professional and well prepared. they asked thoughtful questions that made it clear they had an active interest in the process. They also made sure I had time to ask questions. The on site interview was followed by several additional phone interviews with people who weren't available the day I visited. They made an offer about 10 days later or so. The negotiation process was also very straightforward and pleasant. Ethicon and J&J in general treat their people very well and I think the Credo is very well reflected in the interview process.

    Now that I've actually started the job, I can say it was definitely the right decision. I enjoy working here and find that the people seem to live the Credo and are happy here.

    Interview Questions
    • Most of the questions were standard interview questions regarding my past experience and the material I discussed in my presentation. There were further questions regarding why I had chosen my career path, examples of how I've handled a difficult situation, and what are my greatest strengths as well as areas for improvement. There wasn't anything particular tricky. In that sense the interview was straightforward.   Answer Question
    Negotiation Details
    They are part of a very large company so decisions don't happen overnight. There are some companies where you don't typically go back and forth on an offer because of the all the work and people involved in the process. Some companies try to make the first offer the very best. Given how J&J treats their employees very well, I suspect they try to get it right the first time. Do your homework initially and know what kind of number you are looking for up front.
