Associate Financial Analyst (First Yr FLDP)

I applied through college or university and the process took 2 days - interviewed at Johnson & Johnson.

Interview Details – I was hired into the Financial Leadership Development Program (FLDP) from a finance internship - this is key to getting your foot in the door. The real competition begins during internship interviews, and so long as you obtain the internship and perform well, you will be fine. Obtained an offer in August, which was nearly 10 months in advance of my start date at the end of May.

Interview Question – Behavioral questions   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – Simple, they are not typically willing to negotiate on entry level positions in a rotational program. Salary and terms are pretty standard for all.

Senior Manager Internal Audit Interview

Senior Manager Internal Audit

I applied online and the process took 4+ weeks - interviewed at Johnson & Johnson in January 2010.

Interview Details – They usually try to only hire from within it is difficult to get an actual interview. They will try and get you to subscribe to their Credo of values, which is a bunch of crap. They say they value employees, but will fire people whenever it suits them. They claim to be loyal, but it is a real slash and burn operations. You will have nothing but meetings and they don't actually ever do any work- stay away

Interview Question – Tell me about yourself   View Answer

Manager Interview

Manager
Skillman, NJ

I applied online and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Johnson & Johnson.

Interview Details – Multiple phone interviews and on-campus interviews.

Great people at J&J. Most of them were very professional and polite during interview process; and it was a great experience.

However, follow up process was bit unprofessional. HR personnel was very hard reach and when I finally got a hold of her for a feedback, I was told she'll get back to me next week but never heard from her since. I did politely asked her couple more times but was ignored. I also reached out to the hiring manager to thank her and asked for a feedback (good or bad) but was never replied.

My interview experiences were great and really wanted to work with people I met but post interview process was very unprofessional, almost thought something happened to people there as I was just ignored without any feedback.

Interview Question – Mostly behavioral questions. Not too hard, not too easy   Answer Question
