Operator (Current Employee) – Guelph, ON – 17 February 2019
Don't join this company if you get a role here in Production/Processing. One of the most dysfunctional supervisors and managers you find here. Beware if you are working in midnight shifts because the supervisor in that shift is a very shady and a con-man. Micromanaging is at its best and rate of hiring/firing is very cyclical. Not recommended at all for long term career here.
Senior Customer Service Representative (Former Employee) – Burnaby, BC – 23 September 2018
My manager was great, but they've since farmed off most of the customer service out-country. Some odd quirks: fostered a culture of secrecy by promoting hiding information from internal and external auditors.
Sales Representative (Former Employee) – Toronto, ON – 23 August 2018
Overall the managers are professional however the company truly lacks both racial and gender diversity. The typical sales hires are Caucasian males, a few Asian males. Hardly any females and or other nationalities in their sales force.
Oncology Patient Support Coordinator (Former Employee) – Vancouver, British Columbia – 21 August 2018
Work from Home Role. Great work/life flexibility. Great time management and data entry skills learnt. I gained amazing confidence from being offered such a great opportunity to advance in my working career. I was able to utilise past experience while learning new skills, and exploring parts of my own work ethic that i didn't have a chance to explore until that role. Supportive Team and Management. Great companies that worked along side us.
Hardest part was the fact i was living in a different country by myself, so I was lonely on that part.
The best part was that I gave it a go, tried something new and was pleasantly surprised with how well I handled everything.
Legal Associate/Law Clerk (Former Employee) – Markham, ON – 22 June 2018
Working at J&J is incredibly challenging but that is also what makes it so rewarding. The Consumer Healthcare Division has a broad portfolio of products and services which make for great variety in the advertising and other matters to handle which provides opportunities to grow and learn. However, there is no real line of succession for a law clerk within this organization which is partly why I left.
The legal team in Canada for the consumer business is small and consists of General Counsel, Associate Counsel and two law clerks.

HR Service Rep, Recruit/Learning & Develop. Coord. (Former Employee) – Toronto, ON – 1 March 2018
Johnson & Johnson is a great place to work in regards to work-life balance and room to grow. The only down fall is that it is an American company, and if your manager is located in the US then it may be a completely different experience.
For the first 2.5 years I worked there, my manager was located in Canada and my experience was wonderful. However, for the last 6 months I worked there, our manager left and we were transferred to a manager in the US. This is when things got really bad, as they do things completely different there then they do here, even though it is the same company.
I was treated very poorly, and they do not care about work-life balance or anything about you really. It is strictly all about numbers and the work and nothing else.
Distribution Rep (Former Employee) – Markham, ON – 12 February 2018
I worked for Johnson&Johnson for 3 years and I'd have to say that I really enjoyed my time there. My manager was very understanding and always made our 9am-5pm more enjoyable with his jokes etc. Co-workers are very respectful and help in anyway needed.
