Application

I applied through college or university. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Caterpillar.

Interview

I applied through college recruiting and went through the Leadership and Technical Development Program (LTDP) at Caterpillar Inc. You are basically exposed to different business units over the course of 12 - 15 months.

Interview process was fairly easy. On campus, I was asked a bunch of behavioral questions. I was called for an on-site interview which consisted of 3 one hour long interviews. This was mostly about my experience, behavioral and technical questions.

Interview Questions

  • Tell me a situation where you had a conflict with someone and how did you resolve it ?   Answer Question

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Caterpillar.

    Interview

    Traditional interview process, first round generally with HR or volunteer. 2nd round is with trained interviewers in the group that you are being considered for. Following the STAR or similar method is best to crack the interview, but focus on making a connection with your interviewer. Generally, a host is assigned that will take you around the town, have lunch/dinner with you, and answer questions about the company. Take advantage of that opportunity!

    Interview Questions

    • Nothing difficult, mainly behavioral and culture fit questions, using the Targeted Selection interview and recruiting process.   Answer Question
