Interview

Found that the company’s HR was disorganized. Two different recruiters reached me, one after another, promising more interviews, then did not follow up. This came across as haphazard, poorly planned efforts on the part of the company. Either the recruiters did not have directive from hiring managers and yet they kept reaching out to me, or that the hiring manager was whimsical. Bad either way.

J&J makes good products but not worth wasting your time. I would definitely not recommend this company to anyone.

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took a week. I interviewed at Johnson & Johnson (Miami, FL).

    Interview

    I sent in my resume to HR, within a week I got a call back to come to the plant for an in person interview! They didn't tell me I would be meeting with the entire team, so it took about 2 hours answering both conceptual and technical questions, and talking about my background and what I wanted to do with chemical engineering

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Johnson & Johnson (New York, NY) in June 2012.

    Interview

    Standard questions from selected people. Some questions were repeated by different interviewers. People are busy and hence no focus on listening to answers. Like to talk more than listening. No patience. Try to ask questions on technology and learn from the candidate.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 7+ weeks. I interviewed at Johnson & Johnson (New Brunswick, NJ) in January 2012.

    Interview

    I was a little nervous as this was a group interview with several contestants applying for the same position. The questions were not very straightforward. Many questions asked how you would handle certain situations, or what you think the best answer is.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Johnson & Johnson (Somerville, NJ) in June 2009.

    Interview

    It was a whole day interview to see hiring manager, peers, and HR associates. They don't have written test; however, the face to face interview is much harder. Especially for the afternoon interview, it is hard to concentrate after a big lunch. Some questions get repeated many times. Try to figure out the candidate from multiple angles.

    Interview Questions

    • We know that you have many strengths. Which one will make you shine in this work environment? It tests your knowledge and observation about the department and also your self-confidence.   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    Not much negotiation. Their pay is pretty good.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through other source. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at Johnson & Johnson (Jeddah (Saudi Arabia)) in August 2015.

    Interview

    Did initial interview at job fair, made it clear at that time about the role that I'm interested in. Invited to do another general interview by a recruiter. I've been told that I passed the interview but the position which they have is way lower that what I'm expecting. They offered a position as sales representative while I had engineering degree. The company in Saudi Arabia is very small and it's a joint venture with another company which makes the quality of the work environment very low. Lack of information about Saudi Arabia's branch because it's joint venture. But interviewers were very gentle and cooperative.

    applied during career fair at university. I was notified about my selection within 4-5 weeks. Had an interview on campus, all behavioral questions. Didn't clear the interview and was notified about it within 5-6 weeks from the date of the interview. I would rate the interview difficulty as average. They have a standard set of questions they refer to.
