Part Time Student Interview

Application Details

I applied through college or university. The process took 3 weeks - interviewed at John Deere in November 2013.

Interview Details

Very easy process. Typical behavioral interview questions. Not something to worry about. A lot of teamwork related questions and questions about why you want to work for them, why you picked your major, etc. Want to see that you are a leader and work best when on a team. The entire interview process consisted of one 1:2 interview. I have heard of others who had initial phone interviews. One thing to be aware of: Almost everyone who is a part time student whom I have talked to is struggling to have enough work to fill their time. This seems to be a large problem with John Deere's part time student and internship positions.

    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.

    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral. 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 Questions
    • 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

    Application Details

    I applied online. 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 Details

    The office design is amazing, it is incredibly nice and massive! The interview process involved 3 individuals and the STAR process. The interview was three parts and began with questions over my résumé, then normal team as past experience questions based on the star system. Finally wrapping up with casual personal questions and then they have me a chance to ask them questions.
