    Application

    I applied online. The process took 5 days. I interviewed at Caterpillar (Peoria, IL) in February 2012.

    Very professional and behavioral based. Overall interview was ~ 3 hours and some of the questions went in depth to understand the situation at hand and appropriate behavior displayed. Not many technical questions but just enough to understand your strength in fundamentals. Previous experience was greatly valuable. Overall a great experience. I received feedback within a week that I was selected and am going to get an offer.
