    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Janssen Pharmaceutica.

    Interview

    A person from my group actually referred me to the job. Through a third party recruiter. It was a more behavioural type interview as they found what they needed in me. Very little technical. But I was not graduating soon, so they could not approach with an offer. It was a quick 20 minute interview. Two were on the phone at the same time and they both had a few technical understanding for the job. overall, it was an easy one. They told, if they have similar kind of opening after my graduation they will contact. Asked to be in touch.

    Interview Questions

    • Not so much technical - was perfect match for the position - but they needed somebody sooner so I could not join   Answer Question

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Janssen Pharmaceutica (Columbus, OH (US)) in January 2012.

    Interview

    I received the offer to interview from my school career site. I was given an interview in person with a worldwide finance director who was an alumni from my school. The interview was only about 20 minutes, and the interviewer really only asked about what I did during school and some of my leadership experiences. There werent any business questions or anything. I received the offer a couple weeks later. They only gave me a week to decide. Once I said yes, I just had to do a drug test and show up.

    Interview Questions

    • Explain a time when you were in a leadership role and you had issues leading.   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    I received the offer a couple weeks after my interview. They only gave me a week to decide. Once I said yes, I just had to do a drug test and show up. I later found out that they only recruit from a select number of schools, so its not likely that you can apply online and get it.

    Internship Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Bath, England
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Janssen Pharmaceutica (Bath, England) in March 2014.

    Interview

    The interview was just an informal telephone call - there was no face to face interview, since the placement was abroad. They had already shortlisted 3 candidates by the interview stage, on the basis of cover letter and CVs alone. The telephone interview was the final stage in the application before offers were made. All in all, it was a very easy process.

    Interview Questions

    • How do you feel about the prospect of living abroad?

      How much do you already know about the subject area?   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    I wasn't given the project I was initially interviewed for, but was offered a different project (which I had also initially expressed interest in in my cover letter). I accepted this.

    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at Janssen Pharmaceutica (Cork (Ireland)) in October 2014.

    Interview

    I sent my CV throug Eurofins lancaster. I had a first telephone interview with a really kind HR manager after less than a week from sending my CV. The interview lasted about 20 mins and 10 days later I have been called for a second interview at the plant in Cork. At this second inteview there was the HR manager who called and the QC team leader. The latter made me the same questions I answered in the phone interview, and in the end it added a few questions about college and the vision I had of my future in the company. I received a mail the day after telling I hadn't been selected to go through. At the moment I see the position is sitll open and wonder what they were looking for.
