I applied through a recruiter. The process took 4+ weeks – interviewed at Johnson & Johnson.
The process was professional and they kept me in the loop the entire time. I had three interviews. The first was a screening interview with HR. The second was with a marketing manager. The third was with two directors, one from HR and another from Marketing. All interviews were very friendly and fair. No surprises.

Marketing InterviewNo OfferPositive ExperienceAverage Interview
The process took 4+ weeks – interviewed at Johnson & Johnson in June 2011.
The first round of interview was conducted with an HR person, who had a script/list of questions to ask from. It was quite mechanical - after I answered the interviewer would record my answers on a sheet of paper and moved on to the next question without any follow up. All questions were behavioral questions asking me about my teamwork/leadership experiences as well as the typical "why J&J". Overall, it was a pleasant experience. I thought the interview went really well based on the interviewer's reaction, but unfortunately didn't get invited to the second round.

Marketing InterviewDeclined OfferPositive ExperienceDifficult Interview
I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3 weeks – interviewed at Johnson & Johnson (London, England (UK)) in May 2010.
I originally got told of the offer through a recruiting agency.
Passed a series of online tests, then an interview on-site that consisted of a presentation on a case (preparation time: 1h) then group interview with questions regarding background, skills (challenges of consumer good industry, decentralized organisation, etc). Then I had a final phone interview with managers which was a fairly forward interview (strengths, weaknesses, etc).
My perception of the company: Business oriented but in a casual environment. People-driven and rather open. Care is a key value, and visible in the people as well.
- What was the most frustrating part of your job (previous experience)? Answer Question
Marketing InterviewNo OfferNegative ExperienceAverage Interview
The process took 1 day – interviewed at Johnson & Johnson in January 2010.
Interviewer (HR rep) was late for 20 minutes, apologized briefly (and in a non-sincere way) and began the regular "tell me about yourself" questions. She was quite disrespectful on my overseas work experience and company structure. Once she learned that my experience did not match her expectation, she got even more blunt and gave me the impression that she's rushing to wrap up the interview. I'll definitely not work for a company that doesn't know how to respect potential employees.
