Analyst Interview

No Offer
Negative Experience
Difficult Interview

Application

I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Johnson & Johnson (Skillman, NJ) in March 2014.

Interview

Before the interview you are required to fill out a long form listing all your experiences for the last 10 years with references of people who can confirm what you've done in those 10 years. The interview itself, like most people here said, consists of a lot of behavioral questions. Be ready with the scenarios/examples for each one of them (considering you don't know what they are going to ask, as they have a long list of questions about any work situation you can and cannot imagine). Some questions can be about something you have never dealt with and you are still expected to come up with an example. I think some of those questions are not the best way to assess a candidate and there should be more open-ended questions allowing a candidate to talk more about their actual experience or give an opinion on a certain situation, rather than trying to fit an answer within a hypothetical scenario that they give you. My impression was - they already had someone in mind for a position and were just interviewing other people as part of a protocol. They mentioned a few times that they had to interview a few other people. I received a rejection letter about a week after, which is considerate on their part.

    They wont change compensation. Their focus on standardization prevents them from taking into other factors that warrant more pay.

    Interview

    Interviewing process can sometimes take a long time. Expect that there may actually be someone they want to put in the job already, this happens a lot. I did not like that when I was not selected for the position, after making it to the last round of interviews, I only received the generic rejection email from the recruiter. I am a current internal employee so this is seen as really quite rude. They need to promote more from within.

    Application

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at Johnson & Johnson.

    Interview

    Highly stressful interviews with lot of technical and challenging questions. Interview sessions are thorough and technical knowledge is tested. However, you will not be criticized but rather made known on how to improve. Two way communication is encouraged in interviews where they are more than happy to share on current processes and procedures.

    OK but it is really is hard to discribe. Especilally since its almost been a year since it applied. Its been a standard interview and i did not make it to the next stage - I assume there most have been more stages.
