Difficult Interview

Application

I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Johnson & Johnson (Philadelphia, PA) in October 2017.

Interview

I had a 30 min phone interview and then was flown out to a one day interview. Was an entire 9 hour day speaking with various members of the team for 15-30mins each. I was also asked to give . a 45 min talk about my previous research to the team (about 15 people).
they gave me an offer 2 weeks after the interview.

It was a very full on day, tiring, but very exciting to speak with all the different scientists on the team.
