    I think what attracts me the most about marketing is the dynamic aspect of the role, that allows me to be both analytical and creative. I really enjoy working in a team environment and I love to challenge myself with making difficult decisions.

    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took a day - interviewed at Johnson & Johnson in March 2013.

    Interview Details

    I had two interviews with Johnson and Johnson at a conference I had attended. I loved talking to their reps because they are a dynamic company with many different facets. It was hard to talk to them at points because there is so much going on within their company. I enjoyed the overall process.

    Application Details

    I applied through college or university - interviewed at Johnson & Johnson.

    Interview Details

    They asked 3 technical questions and 3 behavioral questions. It depends on which university you go to, sometimes they ask different universities tougher questions. For Penn State, the questions are extremely hard. Don't expect basic questions like what is a balance sheet?!

    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took 4+ weeks - interviewed at Johnson & Johnson in November 2011.

    Interview Details

    The overall process was great you were able to have a true understanding of both the Leadership Programs as well as JnJ.

    Initially, interviews were conducted through Career Services and then there was a large scale interview process called the Global Invitational. During the Global Invitational you were able to see the commitment that JnJ has to hiring the right people. You learn about JnJ and they learn about you.

    The interview questions were primarily behavioral based questions.

    Sales Strategy Co OP Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate  in  Skillman, NJ
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Skillman, NJ
    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 months - interviewed at Johnson & Johnson in October 2011.

    Interview Details

    The interview for the Sales Strategy Co Op position is not something you go into with no preparation. The positions offered at J&J are very important as you serve as a key team members on a variety of businesses. The program is a feeder into the full time program following graduation so having a co op under your belt is your best bet for working in the consumer company following post graduation. The first interview consisted of a 1 on 1 with a hiring manager and then a call back a month later to a conference center where you have three to four 30-35 minute interviews with hiring managers for the different positions. These interviews are very important as the 1 on 1's could end up being your boss. If you seem best fit for the position they are looking to fill, they will fight to have you on their team in the deliberation after the interviews are all complete. At this final round don’t think you made it quite yet, half the kids in the room were offered jobs and the others turned down. I was called the following morning with a job offer. The questions and styles range from interview to interview but there are some questions that they must ask. Definitely have some key experiences where you can talk about a problem, the action you took, and the results. They love that! Best of luck! J&J is a great company to work for and the training offered in the co op program is one you cannot turn down if you are offered the job. They invest a lot in you and you are looked at as an asset to this GLOBAL company!
