    Neutral Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Caterpillar (Decatur, IL) in August 2015.

    Interview

    Panel interview with 3 people. The hiring manager and 2 others. "Give me an example" type questions. Very long and very serious, many follow up questions and not much to break up the tension. One personal question. I had worked contract for CAT and had emailed the hiring manager my resume as well as applied online. He had spoke to my then current manager about me on the phone.
