    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 6+ weeks. I interviewed at Johnson & Johnson (Jacksonville, FL (US)) in October 2012.

    Interview

    It was a long process, but the recruiter keep me in the loop via email. There were several interviews include two phone interviews and an in-person interview. The phone screening was with the recruiter and then I had an in-person interview with four different individuals separately. I would have preferred a panel, since the individuals asked the same types of questions. Overall, the process went smooth and it was worked out well because I received the job offer.

    Pharmaceutical Sales Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Phoenix, AZ (US)

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at Johnson & Johnson (Phoenix, AZ (US)) in September 2015.

    Interview

    Advertised online that there would be a hiring event and you would have the chance to interview with a hiring manager. Turned out to be a job fair with other companies present. There was one recruiter for Johnson & Johnson and the wait was over 3 hours. When I finally met with the recruiter it lasted less than 1 minute. If you did not have prior experience you were given about 30 seconds, if you did have experience you were given about 1-2 minutes max. Very rushed, very unprofessional, and gave a bad outlook for the company.

Then, roughly 3 weeks later - Step 3): on site interviews with both hiring managers I'd spoken to on phone as well as 3 Directors. Verbal offer came 1 week after that, formal letter followed 2 weeks after that. Background check/drug test took another week before being cleared for hire.
