    Assistant Brand Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    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

    Interview Details

    Had a pretty basic behavioral interview on-campus that also touched upon the work that I've done, and I came out of it feeling positive.
