    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at John Deere in June 2015.

    Interview

    I applied online and was contacted for an interview about a month later. I was interviewed by two managers for one hour. It went straight into behavioral questions (about 6). Some of the questions sounded the same but they wanted different scenarios. They were based on teamwork and communication.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter – interviewed at John Deere (Detroit, MI) in November 2014.

    Interview

    I went to a conference called the Society of Hispanic Professional Engineers. I had presubmitted my resume, and they called me the second day asking to talk to them. From there we set up an interview. It was a fairly simple interview mostly using STAR interview questions. They really like values and teams. They said they called me because I was an Eagle Scout. After the first interview I send my transcript and they offered to fly me out.

    I talked to someone at our University's Career Fair, and two days later I received a call asking me to come to an interview time. The interview was all Behavioral-based so nothing unexpected.

    interviewed at John Deere in October 2014.

    Interview

    Followed the standard STAR method of interviewing. The interviewer was very cool and easy to talk to. From what I learned, second interviews are conducted in Moline, Iowa. They messed up my interview time, but fortunately someone who hadn't left for lunch yet found a packet and interviewed me right on the spot

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1+ weekinterviewed at John Deere (Moline, IL) in October 2014.

    Interview

    They use the same process for an entry level position and for mid management positions. They use the "Targeted Selection" process by the book. This means that they want to predict future performance, but they use it also for employees that have been in the company for 20+ years. In this cases, instead of looking for actual results since they have the data, they still try to predict performance and they will choose a charistmatic person with high presentation skills over a current employee that has given excellent results for years. This process is excellent for new employees, but puts a roadblock on employees that have been successful and loyal for a long time. The other sad part is that prediction is not 100% accurate, so you end up with high level managers that had great interviews, but do not maximize business results.

    Interview

    Apply through the university and apply online. For this Accounting internship, you have to prepare your resume and review what you want to know about John Deere for the interview. I was interviewed at BYU's campus and had I done well the first time, I would have been invited for a second interview in Moline, Illinois. After the interview on campus, I lost interest.
