    Assembler Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Ankeny, IA
    No Offer
    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.

      INTERFACE – IDOCS
      1) Suppose there are 3 IDOCs triggered from some source system to target. How will I make sure that the IDOCs triggered chronologically (i.e. one after another). Provided the fact that number range or time stamp of the IDOCs will not help.
      2) Suppose there is an IDOC which is in status 64 for quite a while. What operations will you do to get it posted?
      3) After your ascertained operation still you are watching the IDOC is in status 64. What could be the possible reason? Assuming the IDOC is in production, provided you don’t have authorization to change the status through any custom program/FM in production.
      4) You have created a sales order. You want that sales order to be replicated to a target system automatically. Other than message control is there any standard technique available through which you can achieve this?
      5) In message control what is that you pass? I.e. how system triggers the message control logic based on a document created?

      3) You have 3 code blocks in a program. You don’t want control to process it sequentially. You want 3 of them to trigger at same point of time. How can you achieve it?

    AREA SALES MANAGER Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Des Moines, IA
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through other source. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at John Deere (Des Moines, IA) in May 2008.

    Interview

    Interviews are behavioral i.e. "Tell about a time when you...." type questions. Most times there are multiple interviers (the HR manager and hiring manager). The interviews are not easy....you must be prepared. I suggest you even bring a page of notes to remind you of things you've done so you can draw from that. Most people have no problem with you doing that.

    You can negociate on vacation if you have a lot of experience. There is flexibility on salary too.

    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at John Deere (Moline, IL).

    Interview

    Expect to be grilled on the STAR method. Interviewer will interrupt you multiple times and tell you things like "you aren't answering my question correctly" and "don't tell me about that, tell me about this instead" to try to throw you off and frustrate you.

    I also found them to be very accommodating and unresponsive.
