    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at Johnson & Johnson in July 2016.

    Interview

    This opportunity was a unique one to say the least. Interviewed on campus and then at headquarters was not impressed with either of the interviews and thought the questions were odd. Slow process. You should expect to not get this position because of the slow process. I would not recommend this to anyone. Do yourself a favor and apply else where.

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Johnson & Johnson (Newark, NJ) in February 2012.

    Difficult Interview

    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.

    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Johnson & Johnson in January 2016.

    Interview

    All interviews were done through WebEx, which was convenient. But interviews would be scheduled with less than 24 hours notice which was hard to work around with a busy sales schedule. The interviews started off with the general questions but eventually got to questions that were difficult to answer with my level of experience (which is the level they were looking for (1/2 years sales). They would ask the same question in different ways. The panel interview was intended to intimidate. Advice: Practice answering the hardest questions you can find regarding sales experience even if they seem unreasonable.

    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 5 days. I interviewed at Johnson & Johnson (Manila, Manila (Philippines)) in March 2016.

    Interview

    Interview took almost an hour. Interviewer was very professional and detail-oriented. He focused more on the behavioral/situation based questions. He also probed about my job history/experience in great detail as he wanted to understand how my past job functions worked. Probably the hardest interview I've had thus far, but it definitely challenged me to become better at answering questions eloquently without having any dead-air.

    Associate Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Blue Ash, OH
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Johnson & Johnson (Blue Ash, OH) in September 2014.

    Interview

    Applied online, got a phone call 7-10 days later asking to schedule a phone interview. Spoke the following week, basic HR phone screen, discussed education, industry experience and salary requirements as well as willingness to relocate. At the end of the phone interview, I was asked immediately to schedule the second round with a Principal Engineer and I was given their name. I did some research on LinkedIn before going in and I went through round 2. This time it was more technical, I was asked about "tools in my engineering toolbox" and I was asked how to approach a specific engineering problem and then if I had any questions. About a week later or so I was sent an email with an invitation to interview on site. I then had to complete a supplementary application and submit at least 8 references electronically and 3 on paper and send them the dates I would not be available. I booked my travel as soon as I could get a day off from work and I received the booking information. I was given 4 consecutive interviews. 1st interviewer was just below a VP in rank and it was to verify aptitude and assess if I fit into their culture; he wanted to check if I had done any sort of homework on the company and credo. The 2nd was an HR person there to ask some behavioral questions and assess my likelihood to relocate and assimilation. The 3rd was a project director, whom all engineers whether junior or principal, report to. She was there to assess my abilities and aptitude as well as assess if I would be an appropriate choice for the company and similar to her direct reports. The last interview were a pair of principal engineers who would more or less be mentors to junior engineers and this was the technical aspect. I was asked about my background, my research, my industry experience, my leadership potential and my rationale behind choosing J&J and specifically Ethicon. All the interviewers asked me why J&J and about my background. The last round also included an assessment of a technical nature, stress analysis with free body diagrams, failure analysis and risk analysis. In all rounds I was asked if I had any questions which you have to be prepared to ask for different levels of the company and different backgrounds. They will give you a bottle of water but there are no breaks unless you ask for a few minutes and I would highly recommend eating a light lunch before the 4 hour interview which ran slightly long each time. Be prepared for more advanced questions if you do not take control of the interview and ask for business cards at the end of each round, I forgot to but I sent my recruiter a thank you email that could be forwarded to the others.
