Easy Interview

Application

I applied through college or university. I interviewed at Caterpillar.

Interview

It was very straightforward. It was back to back 30-minute interviews with 2 different individuals in technical marketing. I researched the company and was able to speak on current events. Their business is changing and they are looking for employees who share their vision of change and who want to make the world a better place. Seeing the big picture of building a bigger world is essential and if you can tie your experience to their vision you will stand out. Also, don't bring up current financial position.

    Interview

    2 30 minutes behavior interviews by two different HR people. I really don't understand why we need to be asked so many behavior questions. They didn't even ask you to introduce yourself or why you want this job.

    I applied through college or university. I interviewed at Caterpillar.

    Interview

    Typical STAR questions. Interviewed with two separate people, each for a half hour. Asked me lots of questions about my work experiences, along with lots of leadership questions. Both people were very easy to interview with. I was told I would hear back about the position within a week. It has been two weeks and I have still not heard from either people.

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Caterpillar (Houston, TX) in February 2015.

    Interview

    I had two 30 minute phone interviews. The interviews were behavioral, and the associates mention that they want STAR formatted answers. They aim to ask 5 questions. They were really nice and start off by talking about themselves and ask about you... I applied through online recruiting, and then was personally contacted to set up an interview. I found out 10-12 days after my last phone interview that I received an offer.

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Caterpillar in February 2014.

    Interview

    The interview was pretty straight forward. I interviewed with 2 separate interviewers, one right after the other. Both were behavioral, but one was slightly more technical than the other. They were both really nice interviewers and both interviews felt more like discussions to me, rather than an interrogation process. A lot of the questions, I had been asked before so I was very familiar with the general format of both interviews.

    Interview Questions

    • How has your technical background helped you in life generally.   Answer Question
