    IT Summer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took 1 week - interviewed at Johnson & Johnson in October 2013.

    Interview Details

    Mostly a personality interview. Attended an information session and case study the afternoon prior and was required to talk to the questions from the case study. The interviewers were quite nice which was good. I applied as a sophomore, so I was not surprised when I was not offered the position, but I would assume that someone with a good amount of experience interviewing would not find the interview process difficult at all.

    Interview Questions
    • No questions stood out as particularly difficult. Mostly just speaking to the different positions I had held in the past. Perhaps speaking about the case study.   Answer Question

    Assistant Scientist Interview

    Interview Details

    I was interviewed initially by an external recruiter. She didn't give me a lot of background on what the company or team would be like.

    I was then invited for an on site interview, the interview was basic with the usual run of the mill questions.

    Interview Questions
    • Some questions were very invasive, ones that dealt with marital status etc.
      I assumed that the interviewers had little to no experience in this role.

    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. 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 Questions
    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.

    Application Details

    I applied online. 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
