    It's clear they don't actually read resumes, I applied for various Director of Product Management Roles - and received the dear john letters within a few hrs. Despite having 10+ yrs of progressive experience in the industry and great references with industry leading firms...don't waste your time unless you have a direct contact or copy/paste the job description...

    Engineer Interview

    Negative Experience

    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.
