I applied through a recruiter and the process took 2 months - interviewed at John Deere.
Interview Details – I approached Deere at a Job Expo and they were very easy to talk to, and would ask general questions about what they initially saw on my resume. After that they chose to stay the day after which was "interview day" where all of the companies had to option to hold interviews or not. This round was a pretty normal interview. I sat down with to Deere reps that were not from HR, but from the field I am specializing in. After passing that interview, they fly you out to their corporate office, all expenses paid, and they show you around the coporate office. Before this happens though, you have two different one on one interview sessions that aren't much more difficult than the first one. Excellent recruiting tactics and I discovered that they are not hiding anything during the process. The company is very welcoming and truly do care about thier employees
Interview Question – Explain a time where you worked as part of a team and someone was not contributing and the steps you took to fix this problem View Answer
I applied online and the process took 3 weeks - interviewed at John Deere in December 2012.
Interview Details – I was contacted through email by one of the engineers at John Deere who asked if he could contact me by phone. He called me a few days later and we talked for a while about farming, tractors, and where I grew up (on a farm). It was a very informal and enjoyable conversation. I was offered a flight up to Augusta for a formal interview which I declined in favor of driving which I was still compensated for. The interview was three one hour interviews, each with a different engineer. An hour was taken for lunch with two engineers, and another hour was taken as a tour through the plant. I enjoyed my entire interview since all of the engineers were very easy going and fun to talk to. If you have any background in farming or the outdoors, you will get along easily with these guys. I liked the fact that all of the interviewers were engineers so they understood the design process and could understand the difficulties involved with certain tasks.
Interview Question – All of the questions were straightforward but you should write down all the experiences you have working in teams and using leadership skills beforehand so they are fresh in your mind. As an example, one of the questions was something along the lines of: think of a time that you used your persuasive skills to convince a group of people to use an idea of yours but your idea ended up being wrong. How did you convince them to use your idea and what did you do when you realized it was the wrong way to do it. Answer Question
Reason for Declining – John Deere offers a very good, stable career. I took an offer in a more volatile and exciting area of engineering with a substantial pay cut because I enjoy taking risks and like the culture of a start up company. For someone looking for a stable job with great benefits, I would definitely recommend John Deere.

Interview Details – Applied through email: the recruiter sent email through HFES chapter mailing list. Got the first phone interview very quickly, mainly asked about education background, and things listed in the resume. The first interview lasted about 30 mins. It is casual. Got the second phone interview two weeks later, asked personality questions. The second interview lasted 90 mins, which is pretty tough.
