Internal Auditor Interview

Internal Auditor

I applied online and the process took 2+ weeks - interviewed at John Deere in January 2014.

Interview Details – So far I have experienced a two step interview process, and both were phone interviews. The first was a fact finding call, and the second was a situational job interview. This is where they ask questions about certain work situations and see how you would respond to them if you were placed in that situation.

Interview Question – Nothing too unexpected, just try to prepare the best you can.   Answer Question

Engineer Intern Interview

Engineer Intern

I applied through college or university and interviewed at John Deere.

Interview Details – I interviewed once on campus and then flew out for a secondary interview. All the questions were behavioral and none were particularly hard. Both interviews were fairly relaxed and I would say it was a good experience overall. Have a lot of examples of projects and experiences ready beforehand.

Interview Question – None were particularly difficult if you are well prepared with a lot of examples from work/school experiences.   Answer Question

Difficult Interview

Legal Intern Interview

Legal Intern

I applied online and interviewed at John Deere.

Interview Details – First there was a phone interview which was really basic and seemed a breeze to get past. Questions were asked about why I was interested in the company, if I would relocate, what I thought about living in Moline, etc. Then I was flown out for a second interview. During the interview I talked to 4 different people, each for one hour. Each person had a packet of STAR interview questions - all behavioral interview questions. These prove to be much more difficult than one might first imagine! Moline is very different, and I'm not sure how I really would have felt living there. They seemed more interested in someone who was older and settled down, and seemed very caught up on how I would move there at my young age. Overall a neat experience but stressful interview process!

Interview Question – How did you handle it when you disagreed with a coworker?   Answer Question

Moline, IL

I applied through college or university and the process took 3 weeks - interviewed at John Deere in October 2013.

Interview Details – Largely behavioral based, little to no technical questions. Be sure to answer questions in STAR format, this should be discussed before the interview. Interviewers were very nice and professional, low stress interview, but make sure to come up with as many different experiences as you can to show diversity, I answered about 10 behavior questions during the first interview and about 25 during the second round.

Interview Question – Tell about a time when you took credit for a team effort and how did you react?   Answer Question
