    Application

    I applied through a staffing agency. I interviewed at Caterpillar.

    Interview

    50minutes interview, traditional STAR formation. The hiring manager also asked about my past experience. Not too many technical questions though. I think they are more willing to take team players.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at Caterpillar in August 2013.

    Interview

    A targeted selection interview process was used. This is a behavior based process that assumed past performance indicates future performance. The process required the interviewee to tell a specific story about things they did. The interview is split into several competencies such as technical ability, teamwork, problem solving, conflict resolution, etc. There are 1 or 2 questions on each competency area. The interviewers need 3 pieces of information from each story: the situation or task, the action you took, and the results.
