    Interview Details

    The process was pretty short from my application to my first interview but then the feedback post interview was really long. I had to wait around 2-3 months.
    My interview was with an HR and mainly with bahvioral questions about leadership and team experiences.
    You need to know well their credo as you will probably be asked questions about it.

    Interview Details

    It was a structured and very professional process. I applied online and, after a week, my first interview was with the Recruiter. After that, within a period of two weeks, I had various 1:1 and panel interviews with the Hiring Manager, the next level and various HR stakeholders. All of them were behavioral based interviews. Go prepared to discuss your experience and accomplishments and demonstrate your knowledge about the Company, products and the Credo.

    Applied through college recruiting email, then went in for an in-person interview, a few months later they told me someone has filled the position, but a few days later another department manager contacted me and set up a phone interview with basic questions like if I can work full time and such. I was hired a few days after that.

    Sales Co-op Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took 3 weeks - interviewed at Johnson & Johnson.

    Interview Details

    Met with a few representatives at the University's career fair. Was contacted about three weeks late for an interview. The interview was about 45 minutes. Basic behavioral questions, nothing technical. Be sure to know the Credo and why J&J is a fit for you. I suggest asking the interviewer about their role. I got the offer two days later and happily accepted.

    The representatives at the career fair and the hiring manager at the interview were extremely down to earth and genuine. It was a very positive and pleasant experience.

    Commercial Analytics Co-op Interview

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

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

    Interview Details

    It was the usual 2x1 interview that others have commented about JNJ as well. I had two very nice women, neither from HR. Unfortunately, they were only hiring one intern as I learned through the interview that the other co-op openings were being moved to their CA office. I interviewed fine but I knew anyone with serious experience in Access would move to the next round instead of me.
