    I applied through college or university. The process took 4+ months. I interviewed at Caterpillar Logistics Services.

    Interview

    Interviewed at the end of my internship. Standard behavioral interviews looking for "STAR" (Situation/ task/ action/ result).

    Negotiation

    No negotiation- all standard benefits and such. Asked for an extension to decide, but that was all.
