    Assistant Scientist Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Interview Details

    I was interviewed initially by an external recruiter. She didn't give me a lot of background on what the company or team would be like.

    I was then invited for an on site interview, the interview was basic with the usual run of the mill questions.

    Interview Questions
    • Some questions were very invasive, ones that dealt with marital status etc.
      I assumed that the interviewers had little to no experience in this role.

    I interviewed through college or university. The process took 2 days - interviewed at Johnson & Johnson.

    Interview Details

    I was hired into the Financial Leadership Development Program (FLDP) from a finance internship - this is key to getting your foot in the door. The real competition begins during internship interviews, and so long as you obtain the internship and perform well, you will be fine. Obtained an offer in August, which was nearly 10 months in advance of my start date at the end of May.

    Interview Questions
    Negotiation Details
    Simple, they are not typically willing to negotiate on entry level positions in a rotational program. Salary and terms are pretty standard for all.

    Senior Manager Internal Audit Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Application Details

    I interviewed online. The process took 4+ weeks - interviewed at Johnson & Johnson in January 2010.

    Interview Details

    They usually try to only hire from within it is difficult to get an actual interview. They will try and get you to subscribe to their Credo of values, which is a bunch of crap. They say they value employees, but will fire people whenever it suits them. They claim to be loyal, but it is a real slash and burn operations. You will have nothing but meetings and they don't actually ever do any work- stay away

    Manager Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Skillman, NJ (US)
    Application Details

    I interviewed online. The process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Johnson & Johnson.

    Interview Details

    Multiple phone interviews and on-campus interviews.

    Great people at J&J. Most of them were very professional and polite during interview process; and it was a great experience.

    However, follow up process was bit unprofessional. HR personnel was very hard reach and when I finally got a hold of her for a feedback, I was told she'll get back to me next week but never heard from her since. I did politely asked her couple more times but was ignored. I also reached out to the hiring manager to thank her and asked for a feedback (good or bad) but was never replied.

    My interview experiences were great and really wanted to work with people I met but post interview process was very unprofessional, almost thought something happened to people there as I was just ignored without any feedback.
