Finance Co-Op Interview

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

Application

I applied through college or university. The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at Johnson & Johnson (Raritan, NJ) in February 2012.

Interview

Met company representatives at the career fair and applied for the position online. Heard back maybe a couple weeks later regarding interviews. Knew a friend that interned for the company so knew what to expect beforehand. There were two interviews scheduled back to back. Each were schedule for approximately 45 minutes but probably didn't take up the entire time. Both were pretty standard. Talked about the experiences listed in my resume and answered some behavioral questions. There were a few technical questions built in but those were super simple. Expect questions regarding cost accounting i.e. what components go into manufacturing a pencil. I know for a fact all the interviewers are given a list of questions that they're suppose to pick from. Did end up getting accepted for the position.

Interview Questions

  • Most questions were pretty standard. Just know basic cost accounting concepts to help with the technical questions.   Answer Question

Negotiation

No negotiation took place. Was offered $20.50 which was pretty much standard across the company.

    I applied through college or university. The process took a week. I interviewed at Johnson & Johnson (Raritan, NJ) in April 2013.

    Interview

    I applied through my college career site and interviewed on campus. The process was very smooth and did not take long at all the hear back. You are interviewed by two Senior Financial Analysts, so make sure you give both of them equal attention. Come prepared with questions of your own as well. They ask about what is on your resume, some simple technical questions, and why J&J. Overall, not a hard interview. I heard back the next business day.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Johnson & Johnson (Skillman, NJ) in May 2009.

    Interview

    On-campus interview for finance co-op:

    *If there is a case competition hosted by Johnson & Johnson at your school, this would help you secure an interview and potentially a co-op (or full-time). So if you are interested in working at Johnson & Johnson, it is strongly advised to do the case competition

    *brief phone screening that lasts less than 10 minutes: the employer calls (doesn't ask any interview questions) but lets you know what the job entails and asks if you are still interested

    *45 minute interview during the scheduled day of interview: very basic questions. Just know your experiences and know your resume. Interviewer may ask you to elaborate each thing on your resume as he/she goes down the resume. Basic behavioral questions, "can you name or describe a time when..."
    *Also, if you come in with great questions, you should be fine. A little prep and confidence will go a long way!

    Interview Questions

    • How are the balance sheet, income statement, and statement of cash flows related?   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    all co-ops are offered the same package, may be negotiable but I wasn't aware that it was. (I didn't ask because it was pretty decent already)

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Johnson & Johnson (New Brunswick, NJ) in December 2009.

    Interview

    The initial on-campus interview consisted of an array of questions; behavioral questions regarding leadership and the likes, questions about your resume, then a few technical accounting questions (what are cash flows? what is a long term liability?) Clearly nothing completely outlandish.

    The second round interview at the office is much more technical where your potential "boss" will ask you if you know how to use particular computer programs and ask you to expand on your knowledge of things like computers in general, customer service, presentation skills, etc

    Interview Questions

    • What are cash flows? How many are there? Name the cash flows.   Answer Question
    • What is a long term liability and on which financial statement is it found?   Answer Question

    Reasons for Declining

    I was given the offer but I have not yet made my decision.

    The interview process was simply one on-campus interview. I had an interview the day after the career fair at my school. The interview has 2 people in it that are usually entry level analysts or managers. All of the questions were very straight forward and mostly behavioral. At the end, they may throw in two accounting questions but they are pretty easy. I think I heard back in 2-3 weeks after my interview with an offer
