    Project Leader HIV1 drug Resistance Prediction Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Mechelen (Belgium)
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at Johnson & Johnson (Mechelen (Belgium)).

    Interview

    4 personnes: HR + 1 CEO + 2 principal Scientists. En anglais. +/- 1h30. Très chaud! L'entretien a abordé à peu près tous les aspects liés à la fonction (déplacements, compétences, disponibilité,etc.) Je suis sorti de là complètement épuisé. Je pense que ce qui fut déterminant c'est le fait que j'étais encore project leader chez Monsanto (Cambridge UK). Il est souhaitable de prospecter quand on est toujours en fonction.

    Senior Auditor Interview

    Anonymous Employee in New Brunswick, NJ
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Johnson & Johnson (New Brunswick, NJ) in July 2016.

    Interview

    Very easy. They called me back within a day and offered me a verbal offer. It took 2-3 weeks to get the written offer. The interviewing process was extremely tough I did a 4 hour back to back interview with different managers. They really grill you and do a good job of vetting who they want to hire.

    Negative Experience
    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.

    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.

    Associate Sales Representative Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    No Offer
    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.
