    I applied through other source. The process took 7+ weeksinterviewed at Caterpillar Logistics Services in December 2011.

    Interview Details

    Had initial interview at career fair, phone interview, then traditional on-site interview (flew in the night before, dinner with other students, then panel interview the next day). With every person I talked to, it was all about the S.T.A.R. Method. I was corrected when I didn't answer my questions in that format, and could tell they were organizing and ranking their notes on each part of the method. (all behavioral questions--tough). They also emphasized safety a lot. Interview day was 1 hour panel interview, tour around the offices, then drug test. Really enjoyed the dinner with the early professionals on the night before the interview.
