Negative Experience
Difficult Interview

Application

I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at John Deere (Ankeny, IA) in October 2017.

Interview

First they were late by at least 15 minutes, wish I just left, or at least I should have left, then for some reason I was interviewed by three different people, it took kind of long. All to answer very generic questions that I have heard in other interviews. The first problem here is when you are being interviewed with other people, never seen that ever. Basically the interview convinced me that I most likely did not want to work there. Problem here is that I did not really learn anything about John Deere, no real exchange of information, like they really have something up their sleeve, and just seeing if I am dumb enough to just go along. Sometimes I wonder why I have consistently done these interviews, only to think later that I was just wasting my time. I am serious, this was not really an interview. The questions they ask demand a lot of time, but well I know I do not have a lot of time, so it is kind of like being trolled. The whole thing is automated, I am sure I would have loved to ask why 700 people essentially quit instead of coming back. But before that I remember taking test were they had you look at a screen with a bunch of random images and have you recall it immediately... It is a real no sequitor. I would have declined their offer given the chance, too many red flags.

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at John Deere (Dubuque, IA) in August 2017.

    Interview

    Three thirty minute back to back interviews. Just read questions off a sheet of paper. Not very personal. Was always scheduled with at least 10 other people. No real sense of being important to the company. Makes you think you are a temp worker at best.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 6+ months. I interviewed at John Deere (Moline, IL) in August 2012.

    Interview

    The interview process was long and tedious. They throughly screen their applicants. If you pass the brief online survey application, they call you in to take a computer test, some time later you are invited for a one-on-one interview with two employees, that's two interviews, and some more time later, they call to make an offer of employment.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at John Deere (Ankeny, IA) in May 2011.

    Interview

    The interview process can be a long wait I applied online and it felt like a long time before I was finally called to have an actual one on one interview I fully believe my father in law got me the job since he went in and recommended me since he retired from the job he got me in a lot faster than if he didn't do that they were at the time hiring a lot of people so the paper work was piled up, they likely put me up higher on the list afer that.

    After I did finally got a call for the interview it went quickly you show up and they ask you questions to see if you are the right person for the job.

    Interview Questions

    • Would you help someone out on the line if they asked you?   1 Answer

    Negotiation

    My advice is you are their for yourself you are not their to lick their boots thats not what they are looking for in a worker they want someone who is willing to work hard and is in it for themselves more than making the company look good thats what the interviewer told me anyways you are their to make money not an ego.
