    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at John Deere.

    Interview

    The interview was only behavioral. The interview questions all came from the same booklet. In the booklet the interviewer could choose from three questions under each section. Over the course of my interview some questions were asked twice. The questions asked you to draw from past experiences to describe how you handled a specific situation.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at John Deere (Moline, IL) in October 2016.

    Interview

    Interviewed through campus. First round was on campus and a basic behavior interview. People were really nice. Second and final round was at the plant in Moline. Met for two more interviews that were behavior. John Deere does not do technical interviews from what I have been told. Between the two interviews they asked very similar questions. After the interview they gave us a tour of the place and it was extremely dumb. They talked more about the history of the building and artwork as opposed to what they do in Moline. Then they made us a nice lunch. Just know your basic STAR format.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at John Deere (New York, NY) in October 2016.

    Interview

    Approached them at university career fair, got called for an on-campus interview the next day. Within 2 days I received an offer to interview at headquarters in Moline. On-site interview took one morning and consisted of 2 interviews with a tour afterwards. Was told to expect a letter from them within 2 weeks regarding ANY decision (yes, no, still looking), but never heard anything from them. Everything up until the end was very nice and professional, but not hearing back led to a negative experience.

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at John Deere.

    Interview

    Firstly, the contacted me after the career fair and asked for an on campus interview. During the interview they asked mainly behavioral questions and few technical questions (I believe it was only because I was a former intern, they asked John Deere related questions). Discussed my interest in the company, its always best to have a compelling story of some sort of why you want to work form them. After a few weeks of the first interview and on site interview was set up and a drug screening scheduled. Very similar interview with a few more people.
