Average Interview

Application

I applied through college or university. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Caterpillar (Iowa City, IA) in September 2017.

Interview

I had an on campus interview and it was all behavioral and they use STAR. It was two separate interviews with two employers each lasting 30 minutes.
Its good to prepare for the interview by understanding how to answer the questions using STAR and preparing behavioral question responses.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Caterpillar (Champaign, IL) in May 2012.

    Interview

    There are only behavioral questions in the interview. When have you gone beyond the call of duty? Tell me a time when you were a leader? Tell me about a time where you had somebody difficult to work with in a group and how did you handle the situation? Pretty basic/expected stuff. Having hands on experience and or design experience would definitely help to get this internship.
