    The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Caterpillar in September 2010.

    Interview

    The interview process consisted of two separate 1 on 1 interviews that lasted around thirty minutes each. The interviewers were very personable which put me at ease during the process. They both used behavioral interview questions about working in a team, demonstrating leadership, dealing with customers, and devising and implementing a plan to complete a project.
