Ethicon Interview Questions & Reviews
Getting an Interview
LAR Interview (Positive Experience; Easy Interview)
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 (Positive Experience; Easy Interview)
I applied through an employee referral and the process took a day - interviewed 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 (Neutral Experience; Easy Interview)
The process took a day - interviewed 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.

Medical Device Sales Interview (Neutral Experience)
I applied through an employee referral and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed 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 Question – I do not specifically remember, but there was nothing that stuck out. Just the usual medical device interview questions. Answer Question
