Supply Chain Co-Op Interview

Supply Chain Co-Op

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

Interview Details – Two interviewers and pretty straightforward behavioral questions. They didn't give me much information about themselves and seemed kind of uninterested. Questions included, tell me about a time you were innovative, tell me about a time you were faced with a challenge, tell me about a time you had to work with a group and someone wasn't being collaborative.

Finance/Accounting Co-op Interview

Finance/Accounting Co-op

I applied through college or university and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Johnson & Johnson in March 2014.

Interview Details – The questions were mainly behavioral. Johnson & Johnson certainly looks for people that fit into their company culture so do research to make sure you feel as if you would fit in. Some questions included how did you work around an issue in a team, discussing former work experience, and how you deal with an unexpected change in your schedule (essentially dealing with stress). Overall, just prepare for the interview by reading up on how to answer general interview questions. The interview has 2 people interviewing you at once.

Interview Details – Interview and hiring process was conducted in a reasonable amount of time considering the size of the company. The process included a phone screen followed by an on site interview with several of the managers in the department as well as other functional areas.

Reason for Declining – Offer was acceptable, however, I turned it down to work in a smaller organization with more growth potential.

Summer Trainee Interview

Indianapolis, IN

I applied through a recruiter and 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.

Interview Details – It was a structured and very professional process. I applied online and, after a week, my first interview was with the Recruiter.
