    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 days. I interviewed at Johnson & Johnson.

    Interview

    Interview was much more of a conversation than a formal meeting. There were no situational or behavioral interview questions, just questions on my experience/resume. Interviewer was very laid back and not intimidating at all.

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 5+ weeks. I interviewed at Johnson & Johnson (New Brunswick, NJ).

    Interview

    First applied 7/2, after a phone, 3 hr long interviews back-to-back over phone and then in-person interview. It may seem long but I appreciate the thorough vetting in making sure it's the right fit both sides! Situational & credo based interviews related to role - be totally prepared for anything, have well-versed scenarios and know your resume. Could've been extremely difficult but I know my stuff!

    Interview Questions

    • Explain how you would handle a task that you didn't agree with and why did you choose that option?   Answer Question

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed 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
