Be prepared to provide concrete examples of accomplishments. Use the STAR method. They grade against that. They also grade against your knowledge of the Credo. Be ready and willing to share examples of times in your life where the Credo would have applied.

A solid rundown of what you should know is the type of role/department that you are looking at and interviewing for, and how you feel you can advertise the work that you do in that position, to benefit the whole of the company (i.e. how can IT help Pharma, or Medical Devices?, etc.) and positively chaining the multiple sectors that J&J prides themselves in. Next, for sure review the Credo, or at least know of its existence; it is the essential mission of J&J as a giant company and covers the culture for both its employees and customers alike. Lastly, leave plenty of space to discuss and perform leadership. From my own experience of hearing about peer interviews and thoughts about the process, it seems J&J puts an incredible focus on attitude, management, and leadership; as such, being an incredible developer is not enough. In fact, my interview process had no technical portion at all, and all questions were behavioral, asking about project experience, leadership experience, managing a team, resolving conflict, a time when I taught something to someone, etc. There is a high value when it comes to interacting, presenting, and speaking with others-- what I guess may be regarded as 'soft skills'.
