    Interview

    Meet them at NASHBA. Got to talk to the manager at the site and got invited for an interview. There were lots of people that were invited. Competition is fierce. The interview lasted about 20min. The HR was very nice so you can not tell whether you interview performace is good or not. She asked about why I want to work for J & J and why this position. And also what kind of marketing strategy I developed before. I gave her an anwer developed from my own expereince and thoughts. She appreciated it. But later I wonder she might be also stealing the candidate ideas for her own benefits. Anyways, nowadays, big companies do that a lot.

    Interview

    Applied through my school's career services center after meeting J&J recruiters at the career fair. Behavioral Interview with a touch of 2 or 3 technical questions. Prepare for a 45 minute interview with either one or two interviewers. Not to difficult, I would say average.

    Interview Questions

    Negotiation

    I received a phone call from HR and then an offer package. Once I faxed everything back it was set in stone.

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

    Interview

    it was an interview on campus with the HR representative. It was smooth. No difficult questions if prepared. Mostly behavioral and about previous experience.
    But she was persistent about details. She always wanted more about the story. So it is good to be prepared with details about each example

    Interview Questions

    • No unexpected questions, focused on behavioral questions (such as ethical dilemna and how I dealt with it?)   Answer Question

    Make sure your GPA is high before going into the interview, because no matter how great the interview goes they will not be able to go further in the application process.

    Tell me a time when you had to over come something

    I applied online. The process took 4+ monthsinterviewed at Johnson & Johnson.

    Interview

    Very situational type questions. Hiring process took a very long time from applying to actual start date.

    Interview Questions

    Negotiation

    They didn't negotiate at all with me, even though later I found out I was the lowest paid person in my pay grade. I did hire people that were able to negotiate though. It all depends on who the reporting manager is and who the HR rep is.
