    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Caterpillar (Mossville, IL) in February 2012.

    Interview

    Got a call for an onsite interview at Caterpillar's Mosville research and development center, after applying online on their website. There was no phone interview. It was a direct call for an onsite interview based on online application. The position was in combustion group.

    Since they were interviewing me for a research position I was expecting the focus would be on technical aspects. But, to my surprise it was completely behavioral. This was a complete "Targeted Selection" interview. It was a panel interview with 3 people. All of them had similar questions, and were asking questions by reading their printouts. The questions are mainly aimed at giving specific examples from your previous experiences in dealing with different scenarios.

    I interviewed with the hiring manager and two other managers working in different groups. All three interviews had the same format with STAR questions. There 1:1 interview in the morning followed by my 25 minutes presentation after lunch. I am still waiting for their final decision. I did follow up last week with the hiring manager, but I didnot get his response. I will try to call him this week.
