Medical Sales Representative Interview

Anonymous Employee in Pittsburgh, PA
Accepted Offer
Positive Experience
Difficult Interview

Application

I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Johnson & Johnson (Pittsburgh, PA) in September 2008.

Interview

I interviewed for a position within Ethicon-Endo Surgery which is an operating company within Johnson & Johnson. The interview process was both educational and intriguing in that it was the first time in an interview that I had to do a powerpoint presentation on myself. The interviews consisted of an initial phone screen, a face to face interview with the hiring manager and a newly hired account manager in NYC, a dinner with the entire field sales organization of 17 people in Florida and finally a roundtable interview with the Marketing Director and Director of Field Sales Operations. I had to prepare two different power point presentations. The first consisted of what I knew of the company and what I had done prior to the interview to prepare. This consisted of actually being in hospital procedures interviewing doctors for thier input on the product that I would be selling. I also called several current employees within the organization to gather their input on the company. The next presentation was all about who I was as a person, how I ran my business and how I thought as it related to being an entrepreneur. The people in the interview process were simply amazing and I knew from the first time I spoke to the hiring manager that I wanted to work with her. Also, everyone in the interview process knew your name after only one time in meeting you and made you feel like they had known you for years. I consider it somewhat of a family. These are some of the reasons why you would want to work for an organization. I have been in sales and management for over 20 years and this is truly a unique culture. After two months of intense preparation and many conversations, I finally landed the job. A piece of advice to all those out there interviewing. Do your homework. It pays to be overly prepared and you must go above and beyond in order to get a job in this tough economic and competitive environment.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through other source. The process took a week. I interviewed at Johnson & Johnson (Dundee, Scotland (UK)) in June 2015.

    Interview

    Applied for a 'trainee medical sales representative' position for medical devices within J&J which was advertised on Uni careers post. Emailed CV and cover letter, invited for interview within 3 days and attended interview within a week of applying. Met in the bar area of a local hotel, interview questions were tough, some challenging questions and lasted just over an hour. I was told at the end of the interview that I would hear within 2 days if they wanted to take my application any further, which I did. In the end I wasn't selected due to lack of experience (which is annoying given that it was listed as a trainee jobs with no experience required).
