I applied through college or university – interviewed at Caterpillar (Peoria, IL) in October 2011.
Initial contact started at a campus job fair. Conversations with HR reps went well, so I submitted my resume. I attended presentations on campus put on by Caterpillar that week. First round of interviews held on campus. Second interviews at Caterpillar HQ. Interviewed by three staff members - three very different personalities. Questions weren't overly difficult, a few were challenging. They were looking for very specific experience (mix of marketing and technical). Received a call a few weeks later that I would not be receiving an offer.

I met with a recruiter at a career fair, who told me to apply to the position. About two weeks later I received an email from the HR group with some forms and questions to fill out. Three weeks after that I got a call for the on site interview. The questions were all STAR based.

I applied through an employee referral. The process took 4+ weeks – interviewed at Caterpillar (Singapore (Singapore)) in July 2010.
3 interviewers. They used targeted selection interview questions. Will ask questions along the lines of how you managed a certain situation in the past, what was the outcome, how do you cope with stress, etc. Each interview could take about 45 mins to 1 hr.

Not much to negotiate. Each job has a grade and a starting pay.
