    Interview Details

    I talked with a recruiter who was very kind and easy to talk to. After asking some basic behavioral questions, she forwarded me a coding challenge. It was mainly about writing some Xcode for parsing through an xml file and creating a property list to store information. I was also told to link tableview cells with the webpage in safari.

    Fast interview. Friendly, relaxed atmosphere. Want the best people-dedicated & motivated. I was surprised at how approachable the supervisors were-very good first impression! I did feel like at points they just wanted to get throigh the interview, or maybe I was just talking too much.

    Hiring process was very transparent and the interview was fairly simple. There was an objective test and the test was fairly simple. After that the interview was simple.

    MBA Development Program Interview

    Interview Details

    Very 'fit' based interview. They are very interested in finding people who can demosntrate a willingness to live in Moline, away from major urban centers. Evoking a strong interest in the outdoors, agriculture, etc are obvious ways to demonstrate a good fit with the firm. Overall the people are extremely friendly and nice, and I had the impression that it would be a very good company to work for in terms of having nice coworkers.

    Interview Questions
    • Probing questions involving times where you have failed are big. To be able to have good examples that don't seem too weak, while also demonstrating how overcoming those challenges helped make you a better professional/leader etc is a fine line to walk, but answering it well is a great way to demonstrate your maturity and managerial abilities   Answer Question
    Reasons for Declining

    Location and industry was not exactly what I was looking for

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at John Deere.

    Interview Details

    A very pleasant and informative HR representative calls you to discuss position, hours needed, starting salary, etc. You go in and take a battery of math, language, proofreading, and other tests on a computer in a small room by yourself, then if you pass, a supervisor from the department conducts a lengthy behavioral job interview with you during the same visit. They are very friendly and do let you ask any questions you want to, about the job duties. Then if you get an offer, there are pre-employment background check and drug test, and if those are passed, someone from HR calls you to talk about the scheduling of the training classes.
