    Very nice people, started with on site interview at career fair, then two interviews in one day at New Jersey. Had to prepare a short presentation on leadership experience. One interview was focused on a case study. It was an overall pleasant experience. Very responsive people and they seem to care about all people interviewing.

    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2+ monthsinterviewed at Johnson & Johnson.

    Interview Details

    1 HR Phone Screen (30 mins)
    1 In-Office Interview (2 separate interviews, 60 mins each)

    HR Phone Screen:

    Had a very aggressive woman almost literally scream at me and fine pick at every detail on my resume (which is fine, but she didnt have to scream) Her tone was of pure skepticism to everything I had on my resume which was off-putting, but maybe just a tactic they use. Certainly did not think I got past that round

    4 weeks later I got a email inviting me to a Final Round in the Office.

    In-Office Interview:

    1st Interview was with a Group Brand Director and a Brand Manager
    - Standard walk me through your resume
    - Tell me about a time when....
    - Why J&J etc..
    - Case questions (very simple math and marketing)

    2nd Interview: same as the above with a different Senior Brand Manager and Group Brand Director

    Didnt think it went spectacularly and really did not expect to get the offer but 2 weeks later I got the job.

    Interview Questions
    • Tell me about a marketing campaign that caught your attention and why, does not have to be J&J. (Not necessairly difficult but caught me off guard)   Answer Question
    Negotiation Details
    There was no negotiation the offer was more than what I was expecting
