Very Easy Interview
I applied through an employee referral and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Johnson & Johnson in October 2013.
Interview Details – I applied online (this would be my third rotation with JnJ) and I heard back from a recruiter a few days later. I did an recruiter phone screen (to make sure I meet the basic requirements) that lasted 15 mins. I then had a interview with my future supervisor that lasted 30. JnJ is a great company. They love "Value-added Work" and how you can and will uphold the values of the beloved Credo. In my first interview, I actually recited the Credo (I know but you see I'm on my third assignment). I received a very good offer and accepted.
Interview Question – Behavior based...."tell me about a time where you handled multiple assignments on tight deadlines.." JnJ loves that question. Answer Question
Negotiation Details – Yes, since I was returning I got to negotiate.
I applied through college or university and the process took 3 weeks - interviewed at Johnson & Johnson in October 2013.
Interview Details –
Very friendly environment. Interviewers help keep the conversation fluid and open. Other than asking about interest in J&J, all behavioral questions such as greatest strength, most difficult problem solved, learning from mistakes, working with different types of people, etc.
The interview was an hour and a bit tiring only because the questions are open ended but require a lot of details. Interviewers were both very nice.
Interview Question – Discussing a mistake made on the job. Answer Question
I applied through college or university and the process took 2+ weeks - interviewed at Johnson & Johnson in October 2013.
Interview Details – Met company representatives at the career fair and applied for the position online. Heard back maybe a couple weeks later regarding interviews. Knew a friend that interned for the company so knew what to expect beforehand. There were two interviews scheduled back to back. Each were schedule for approximately 45 minutes but probably didn't take up the entire time. Both were pretty standard. Talked about the experiences listed in my resume and answered some behavioral questions. There were a few technical questions built in but those were super simple. Expect questions regarding cost accounting i.e. what components go into manufacturing a pencil. I know for a fact all the interviewers are given a list of questions that they're suppose to pick from. Did end up getting accepted for the position.
Interview Question – Most questions were pretty standard. Just know basic cost accounting concepts to help with the technical questions. Answer Question
Negotiation Details – No negotiation took place. Was offered $20.50 which was pretty much standard across the company.
I applied through college or university and the process took 4 weeks - interviewed at Johnson & Johnson in October 2013.
Interview Details –
Process began with a 30' phone screening with relaxed, conversational-type questions, one of which asked for preferences of where in J&J you wanted to work. Next phase was a recruiting mega-event - I guess about 400 candidates from all over the world - lasting 2 days in a hotel. Before the event different J&J companies screened your resume and then booked you for an interview, so that when you got to the event you had an interview schedule in blocks of 1 hour. There were also sessions where you learned about the Credo and interviews where they pose an ethical challenge.
A couple weeks after the event I received an offer from the local affiliate and then I had to negotiate salary from the initial offer.
Interview Question – Questions were pretty standard, but J&J differentiates itself on its set of core values in the Credo, so there are cases based on that and while there are probably some wrong answers, there are also several right ones. The cases pose a situation and ask you to make a decision. View Answer
