    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at Johnson & Johnson (New York, NY) in April 2017.

    Interview

    Was contacted by an hr specialist if I'd be interested in applying. I submitted my info and applied. A couple days later, I was invited to take an interactive interview and was supposed to take asap. Red Flag

    I took it at my convenience since it was my very first 'no human' interview. There were 7 questions as others listed here. You can retry 2x per question if you didn't like an answer.

    Low and behold, some technical issues during my interactive interview. I couldn't review 3 questions, which I tried for all my answers. One of my questions was cut off at the end. I contacted hr specialist whom she referred me to contact the streaming system help desk. But they couldn't do anything.

    It's been a little more than two weeks and no update. I am fine with that given that I wouldn't consider moving to NJ.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Johnson & Johnson in February 2016.

    Interview

    I received a phone call and email from a recruiter about a six month contract role. The recruiter told me that had a position for a financial analyst paying $26.00 per hour, I replied that I wasn't interested and my background was on a senior level - managerial, the rate would be considerably below my requirement. The recruiter sent another email offering $38.00 then followed up with several phone calls.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Johnson & Johnson (New Brunswick, NJ) in January 2016.

    Interview

    Started with a phone interview with a recruiter. Very basic questions, trying to see if you have the required skills of the position and are able to communicate effectively. Then moved to meeting hiring manager and interviewing with him and another manager. Was called to come back in for another interview and submit my references. Next interview was with a director and another director from another business unit. Interviewed with 4 people, 2 each time. Everyone was tremendous on keeping me updated, scheduling, directions, etc. Great experience.

    Interview Questions

    • Standard interview questions, such as describe a time when x happened, how did you handle it, then there were technical questions as well. Pretty standard, nothing hugely surprising or off the wall. The technical questions were difficult, but being prepared and practicing ahead of time really helped. Be prepared by having scenarios ready to go with you, and make them relevant to the job. Don't be afraid to say I don't know. Just be honest and natural, if you get to the interview part, there is obviously something they see if you, so just be yourself.   Answer Question

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 6+ weeks. I interviewed at Johnson & Johnson (Raritan, NJ) in December 2013.

    Interview

    Applied online. Initial interview over phone with company recruiter. Then scheduled an onsite interview a week later but it was to interview for two jobs. At the closure of the interview I was told by the hiring manager I would hear next steps from our recruiter. Unfortunately I did not receive any follow up or even a generic system generated email saying the job was closed or filled. Later through networking I found out that these jobs are generally for employees that are part of the fldp program but they post externally to pull in outside people as fillers. Overall I would not recommend wasting your time unless you are unemployed and desperate for a job. Recruiting was highly unprofessional and do not recognize the time candidates put in to interview onsite. Based on how this employer treats candidates it is indicative of how they treat their employees. Funny thing is a year later the same recruiting member called asking if I wanted to apply for jobs and come in for an onsite interview. No thank you JNJ. Unfortunately I only lost one vacation day and I am not wasting anymore time.

    Application

    I applied through other source. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Johnson & Johnson (New Brunswick, NJ) in May 2013.

    Interview

    J&J does a standard interview process for internal moves. Behavioral and prior experience interview approach. For external hires, the process is definitely more in-depth as there is less to go on than an internal candidate. The interviews are not meant to trip candidates up. It is important to have a clear "why J&J" answer and to make sure that you understand what J&J is all about. It is a great company, and a company that cares.
