Interviewed at Johnson & Johnson

Interview Details – Recruited at university career fair, really genuine people. Started with a phone interview and was later called back to second round interviews and look into the company culture and facilities.

Johnson and Johnson CO-OP Interview

Johnson and Johnson CO-OP

Interviewed at Johnson & Johnson

Interview Details – I went through the career center at my school. Johnson and Johnson asked for an interview, and the only experience I really had was lifeguarding. They seem to care more about the person rather than experience. There were two, 30 minute interviews that lasted about thirty minutes each. Two people in each interview and they were both very friendly and cared about the process and they company.

Interview Question – Started off with easy questions, such as time management, leadership, and thinking on your feet. Then they asked technical questions about financial statements, which one is the most relevant, and a lot of accounting based questions.   Answer Question

Administrative Assistant-Temp With Possible Perm Interview

Administrative Assistant-Temp With Possible Perm
Skillman, NJ

I applied through a staffing agency and the process took 4 days - interviewed at Johnson & Johnson in January 2014.

Interview Details – Most of their admin temps are sent in via staffing agency. I participated in a phone interview by staffing agent and then was sent in for a formal face to face interview with the two executives I would be reporting to. One used the STAR format, the other seemed disorganized and used a more general interview format. Beautiful building and amenities at the Skillman location. Very personable execs-would have enjoyed working on their team.

Interview Question – Nothing to speak of, pretty straightforward.   Answer Question

Reason for Declining – Pay rate for supporting two executives, even as a temp, was very low. At the moment, the job market is flooded with candidates, but I had other options present themselves within this timeframe. Great for someone who is younger or can afford to take pay cut to get into the company. However, I do know someone who "temped" for two years and was never offered anything permanent. It's a chance you take....
