    Software Engineering Interview

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a weekinterviewed at Johnson & Johnson.

    Interview

    The interview process consisted of only one phone interview. Because it is only an intern position, the screening process is definitely not as strenuous. The first part consisted of all behavioral questions, eg. describe a difficult situation you faced and how did you solve it? After that, I had a few technical questions to test my programming competency. Non-language specific. All you have to do is explain your logic and that should be sufficient.

    Interview Questions

    • Basic behavioral questions and a few coding questions. Overall not difficult. As long as you are confident in yourself, you should be fine!   Answer Question

    Interview

    Phone interview followed by an in person interview. Once the in person interview is conducted HR takes a while to process your information and contacts you in a few weeks about their decision.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at Johnson & Johnson (Memphis, TN) in June 2015.

    Interview

    Very long, detailed, 4 interviews from 4 different managers. NEED to know someone on the inside or a referring Physician to even think about getting on with this company. I applied online, gotacall, had 4 ipositive interviews only to be told they chose another candidate. It is a GREAT company if you can get on, getting on is the hard part.

    Interview Questions

    • Sell me something on this table (the desk he was sitting at). Be prepared to be put on the spot. You really need to have a referral for them to even consider you, of course they won't tell you this.   1 Answer

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 3 daysinterviewed at Johnson & Johnson (Los Angeles, CA) in June 2015.

    Interview

    6 phone interviews with folks from R&D, Quality and HR. I thought I answered the questions well enough for a face-to-face. I heard nothing back from them. Nothing from their HR, nothing from the hiring manager, and nothing from their internal recruiter. It would have been nice to get some feedback to say either I have been selected for the face-to-face or sorry, but we found better candidates. After numerous e-mails to the HR and hiring manager, I gave up.
