    R&D Co-Op Interview

    Neutral Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Ethicon Endo-Surgery (Cincinnati, OH) in March 2015.

    Interview

    Two people interviewed me for about an hour. They were very nice, but it was intimidating. You need to prepare very well in advance by thinking of certain situations and how previous work experience can apply to engineering. They did not notify the people that did not get the job.

    Interview Questions

    • They mostly asked behavioral questions. What is your idea of a leader, what leadership qualities do you possess and do you know of anyone that has these qualities. Describe a time when you had to make an ethical decision and how you described it. Two questions about a time when you had to make a decision and your thought process behind it. Be prepared to ask them questions as well.   Answer Question

    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through other source. The process took 6 weeks. I interviewed at Ethicon Endo-Surgery (Somerville, NJ) in May 2014.

    Interview

    Following two phone screens, was invited to Somerville for in-person interview. It was a panel interview in th STAR format. Very difficult to get a real feel for how your message resonates with the panel as the panel was formally polite. The process was very scripted and did not allow for exploration or deeper dives on any given topic.

    R & D Coop Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Cincinnati, OH

    Positive Experience

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Ethicon Endo-Surgery (Cincinnati, OH) in February 2012.

    Interview

    most of behavioral questions. This is my first interview ever, so I was kinda of not knowing what is expected. At a few questions, I might talked too much on one topic, so 30 min interview ran out really quickly. The interview was held in a big hall, where you are surrounded by other interviewers from other companies hiring coop and interviewees. It is timed to be only 30 mins and another interviewee will come in.There are warning alarm 10 mins before the 30-min interview, which was really annoying. I think trying to keep your answer concise and quick.

    Product Director (Marketing) Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Cincinnati, OH
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at Ethicon Endo-Surgery (Cincinnati, OH) in May 2010.

    Interview

    My initial screening interview with HR was quite casual and easy. The recruiter simply asked me to review my background. No behavioral questions. Next, I had an on-site panel interview with 5 people in either marketing or R&D. They asked some behavioral questions, but the questions were somewhat conventional and lacked the depth I would have expected from JnJ. Also, the group dynamics were flat - they seemed disinterested from the onset of the interview. It almost seemed as if they had already made up their mind before I began talking. One person specifically focused his questions on how I would work in a flat organization (he implied some concern with my current level being too senior). Another person asked for a behavioral example and the group director seemed to be assessing how I work with others.

    Territory Manager Interview

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 6+ months. I interviewed at Ethicon Endo-Surgery (Los Angeles, CA) in July 2009.

    Interview

    My overall impression with everyone I encountered was that they truly cared about whether or not the position was a good fit for both me and the company. I was given extremely positive feedback and my last in-person interview with the hiring manager ended with an invitation to ride-along with a current rep. I didn't receive a call back after that point and then a week later the recruiter emailed and said they went with someone else. JnJ has contacted me 4 times since about other positions and I've had a similar experience every time...

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at Ethicon Endo-Surgery (Cincinnati, OH) in May 2009.

    Interview

    Just completed the 3 of 3 phone interviews. The first was a phone screen which verified that I was the person I said I was. The 2nd was a general background interview with standard interview questions regarding project leadershiop, design examples, and problem solving. Something of a focus on working relationships and examples of problem solving.
    The 3rd interview was more leadership questions but with an engineering slant to them.
