    Part Time Student Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate  in  Moline, IL
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Moline, IL
    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took 3 weeks - interviewed at John Deere in November 2013.

    Interview Details

    Very easy process. Typical behavioral interview questions. Not something to worry about. A lot of teamwork related questions and questions about why you want to work for them, why you picked your major, etc. Want to see that you are a leader and work best when on a team. The entire interview process consisted of one 1:2 interview. I have heard of others who had initial phone interviews. One thing to be aware of: Almost everyone who is a part time student whom I have talked to is struggling to have enough work to fill their time. This seems to be a large problem with John Deere's part time student and internship positions.

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.
