Interview

I talked to a rep at a career fair and she told me to apply online. After applying online, I heard back in a couple weeks and had an in person interview. I was interviewed by two people for a half hour each. After another couple weeks, they called me to tell me that they are pursuing other options.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Caterpillar (Rhinelander, WI) in January 2014.

    Interview

    Went with the basic S.T.A.R method. That was the initial interview when arrived at the facility. All questions needed to be answered with S.T.A.R method. Rather impersonal and only worried about your supposed "skills" to answer the questions. It felt more one dimensional than anything.

    Single phone interview due to my remote location. Interviewed by two people. Both were very knowledgeable and understood the job requirements.

    Negotiation was minimal once it was determined that I fit the requirements. This was a contract position. Negotiation was focused on the minimum acceptable to close the deal for both parties.
