    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at John Deere (Moline, IL).

    Interview

    There was a two-round interview process. My first round interview was at a conference with a panel interview with two interviewing me. The questions were general behavior questions where you explain your resume and answer basic questions. I heard back within the week and was informed I'd be moving on to the second stage. For the next round they fly you to HQ in Moline, Illinois. I was interviewed in a one-on-one stay with two different interviews. I was offered a position within the same week.

    Interview

    I applied online. Process took 2 months. Went through a series of 3 interviews. Overall everyone I talked with seemed very interested in getting to know me and trying hard to sell the company to me. I enjoyed the process and felt like they really were glad they hired me.

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at John Deere.

    Interview

    This was a shorter pre-interview in their selection process at a career/job fair. If they like the applicant they then enter more interviews for John Deere to decide if they like the applicant. It was a great process that was very well run with great interviewers.

    I applied through college or university. The process took a week. I interviewed at John Deere.

    Interview

    Approached them at a university career fair. Offered an on campus interview the next day. It was a behavioral interview with one other person. Overall it was a basic process, but the interview was very unnatural and awkward. It didn't feel like a conversation because the interviewer was buried in her notes the entire time.

    Interview Questions

    • Describe a situation where you designed something that didn't work out as planned.   Answer Question

    Interview

    Really nice process! I interviewed at my college campus and then at headquarters! Everyone was friendly and the process of a full day interview was not as bad as I had thought it was going be! They do a good job breaking up the day and making everyone relaxed.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at John Deere in November 2016.

    Interview

    Applied for a position as a Mobile App Developer for iOS and Android on a contingent basis.
    Got a response and interview within a week of applying. Was told before hand that the interview would start with a behavioral portion and end with a coding test that had a 2hr time limit.

    The behavioral portion took 30-45mins. After expressing a stronger skill with iOS, the interview revolved around the swift language and Xcode. Was asked how I would handle various scenarios, what class would I utilize during which occasions, what problems arise if a certain route is taken, and the typical core practices with coding.

    For the test I was asked to build a basic app that meeting a given prompt's requirements. In a broad sense I had to: parse json from a given URL, populate tableView cells with the retrieved data. A given cell would segue to a detailed view controller that displayed more information on the given object. The detailed view encapsulated a button that navigated to another VC that had the have the user ability to update a property of that object via user input. Updates would be reflected through out the view stack. I was also allowed to reference any source I wanted (i.e. Goolge, stack exchange), not many restrictions.

    At the time I had a minimal amount of exposure to parsing json. Initially I wasted a lot of time cyphering through the internet trying to find and panically interpret references for this. because I first focused on what didn't know how to do, instead of cranking out what I did know how to do, by the end of the two hour period I had an incomplete product that would not compile. I expressed the that flaw when submitted the app and they said they will review it and get back to me. Near the end of the week I got a response saying they are still reviewing the code, saw I had trouble parsing, but could also see where I was going with it and they would get back to me next week. By that time, for the sake of my own self esteem, I had actually revised the code to accomplish what it should have accomplished during the interview test. I replied to their email pointing out the process I wished I would have taken on the day of the interview (built the functionality first—using test data—then focus on parsing the json), and adding a link to my git that had the revised code. The following Tuesday I got a job offer.
