    Negative Experience
    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.

    Difficult Interview

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at John Deere in August 2016.

    Essentially used the STAR method (situation, task, action, result). Several questions back to back from each interviewer. At times, questions were exactly the same between interviewers. Be prepared with specific situations describing various scenarios in order to fully address these questions as they always want a detailed answer.
