    Demand Planner Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Application Details

    I interviewed through an employee referral. The process took 4+ weeks - interviewed at Johnson & Johnson in December 2012.

    Interview Details

    Pretty standard STAR interviewing process asking your usual "Tell me about a time when..." questions. I did three phone interviews as I was not local. For local candidates, usually on-site interviews. Hiring process again is pretty standard with drug screening and background check. HR sets everything up so you don't really have to plan too much, just need to make some time within the restricted month or so you have to do the drug test.

    Interview Questions
    • Really nothing difficult, I suggest having a copy of your resume in front of you to be able to glance at for experiences. Studying your resume prior to the interview is also a big help.   Answer Question

    I interviewed through college or university - 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

    Application Details

    I interviewed through college or university. 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 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.

    Interview Questions

    Application Details

    I interviewed 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.

    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.
