    The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Johnson & Johnson in September 2011.

    Initially contacted by HR rep for a brief phone screening. Interview panel consisting of 4 members was scheduled about 1.5 weeks later. The majority of questions were experiential in nature, with the rest pertaining to personality and personal attributes. All in all, it was a difficult interview, and no offer was made.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Johnson & Johnson (Rehovot (Israel)) in January 2011.

    Interview

    Everything was very organized. Not much bargaining room, though. But conditions were and are fair.

    Interview Questions

    Negotiation

    Don't bother negotiating too much at entry level jobs. You can (hopefully) have some room to bargain if and when they want you to move/relocate/change positions.
