    Application

    I applied online – interviewed at Johnson & Johnson.

    Interview

    Asked a number of behavioral questions and questions about my resume. Have a few scenarios in mind for questions and look up the STAR answer technique. Johnson and Johnson has a reputation of having very nice people so don't be too worried. Don't be afraid to brag about yourself and answer clearly. I only had one interview.

    Easy Interview

    Application

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

    Interview

    Met at the recruitment fair held on campus. Received notification for an interview three weeks later. The actual interviewing process was very relaxed. Not so much formal, but the interviewers just want to see if your attitude and personality would fit into the company. Some technical questions but if you have basic knowledge of marketing and its concepts, it should be a breeze.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online – interviewed at Johnson & Johnson.

    Interview

    Basic first interview with only a few open-ended questions. I spoke with a non- technical guy in personnel so it wasn't difficult. I was very disappointed after being told I'd hear back within 10 days about a second interview, they didn't get back to me for 6 months (and that was an impersonal "you didn't get the job" email). I contacted them 5 times over the first two weeks and then gave up when I had to leave messages every time and they wouldn't call back. Crappy company.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter – interviewed at Johnson & Johnson in March 2015.

    Interview

    This was a phone screen for a laboratory-based temp position. It was a half hour long and there were 3 people on the line (yes, even phone screens are panel these days). They first described the position, then asked me about my previous experience and then asked the specific questions about my past. The questions were a little tough for a phone screen...the type of questions that are generally saved for an in-person interview. They then let me know that they would be phone screening several other candidates & would select one or two to have an in-person interview.
