    Former Employee - Design Engineer  in  Waterloo, IA
    Former Employee - Design Engineer in Waterloo, IA

    I worked at John Deere as a contractor for more than a year

    Pros

    As a design engineer it is great to have all of the aspects from design to build all in the same building or in some cases, very local.

    Cons

    I have only one grievance. My supervisor was and probably still is, the worst manager I had ever worked for in my 25 year career. He was lazy, obtuse, narcissistic and a bully to the employees that felt their job was in jeopardy. I myself did not tolerate his abuse and stood up to him on every occasion.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    My advice to management would be to be very careful who you try to intimidate.

    I applied through a staffing agency - interviewed at John Deere.

    Interview Details

    Fast interview. Friendly, relaxed atmosphere. Want the best people-dedicated & motivated. I was surprised at how approachable the supervisors were-very good first impression! I did feel like at points they just wanted to get throigh the interview, or maybe I was just talking too much.

Yet, through it all, John Deere is still dedicated to those who are linked to the land – farmers and ranchers, landowners, builders, and loggers. And Deere has never outgrown, nor forgotten, its founder's original core values.
