I applied online and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at John Deere.

Interview Details – Very good. Was a smooth interview and they made you feel welcome. Ask tough questions but were very relative to the job. Only thing I wish they would have told me more about the job day-to-day and general information when I asked.

I applied through an employee referral and the process took 4+ weeks - interviewed at John Deere in January 2012.

Interview Details – The initial contact was done through an email, which was followed up by an initial phone interview/screen. They just wanted to check my credentials. They followed through with all of the former employees I had listed on my resume, so make sure they are all legitimate. The face-to-face interview took place about a month later. It was in a small room and I was interviewed by 3 employees including my soon to be boss, his boss, and an HR representative. It was fairly intimidating, but they were friendly about it. Dress up as much as possible.

Interview Question – They asked a lot about team work and what I had done personally in the past to show that I can work well in a team. It was a difficult question to answer because they put you in a place where it might be necessary for you to brag a little about your past experiences. Personally, I wasn't very comfortable with this, but it worked out alright.   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – Salary is a flat rate based on your school year for part-time students.

I applied online and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at John Deere in January 2012.

Interview Details – I applied online through my university's job/internship portal. After applying, it took a couple of days before I was called and had a short phone interview with the hiring that was really just background on what I was studying and why I applied to the position. The hiring manager then set up an intetview for the next week.

I had an interview with the hiring manager, and two other people that worked with the department. The two people ran through my resume (at 19 all I really had was waittressing) and asked basic situational questions while thehriing manager just sat and listened. Interview was about and hour, I got an offer the next day. The two interviewers were very easy going, one of them was younger so it made me feel a bit more at ease, and they did not rush me for answers if I had to think of a situation.

Interview Question – Tell me what you know about supply management.   View Answer

Negotiation Details – No negotiantion for PT students; your hourly salary is calcualted by HR based on your year in school and GPA.
