    Director Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Declined Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Janssen.

    Interview

    The interview process is extremely long and involves many people. There is a very specific interviewing guide that all interviewers adhere to. Not a lot of follow-up questions from interviewers. They like round-table interviews with multiple interviewers at the same time.

    Graduate Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Raritan, NJ
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at Janssen (Raritan, NJ).

    Interview

    I was screened by a recruiter, and then had two interviews with the people who led the internship program. I was told after my recruiter phone screen that I should expect to be contacted about further interviews. My two interviews with the leaders of the internship program involved more in depth talks about projects I had worked on, my interests, and what I could expect to do during the internship. I found them very personable, however the process took a relatively long amount of time (as do many things in Janssen). I had to explain that I was considering another offer to hurry the process along.

    Medical Information Specialist Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Titusville, NJ
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Janssen (Titusville, NJ).

    Interview

    The interview schedule was very inconsistent. There was no interview with the Associate Director as he "had to leave for a meeting." According to the schedule, I was supposed to meet with the Director of the Medical Information Center but ended up being interviewed by two inexperienced interviewers. Both did not review my resume ahead of time and asked repetitive questions. They were afraid of asking too many technical questions because they know they wouldn't be able to respond to the answers correctly. It is evident that they are searching for a candidate who isn't too experienced so that they can overpower the candidate. Also, there is no cultural diversity* in this department which explains alot about the company's values and working environment.

    Senior Associate Scientist Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Spring House, PA

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ months. I interviewed at Janssen (Spring House, PA) in February 2016.

    Interview

    Was first emailed by the hiring manager (now my supervisor) asking if I was interested in learning more about the position for which I applied via a phone conversation. The phone conversation was in fact a phone screen to gauge my level of interest and whether or not I was a competitive candidate for further consideration. Two days later, I was contacted via e-mail inviting me for an in-person interview which took place one week later. This was an all-day event lasting 9+ hours and meeting with upwards of 20 people, some individually and some in small groups of 2-5. I was also asked to provide a 1 hour-long seminar showcasing my previous work. Following the interview, approximately one week passed and I was contacted via telephone from my now supervisor that I was selected for the position.
