    Data Wrangler Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Johnston, IA
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at John Deere (Johnston, IA) in November 2017.

    Interview

    Panel, behavioral based interview. There was some technical, but mostly situational type questions. Answering questions in the STAR format is expected so review guidelines on that and try to schedule some mock interviews to prep which situations to use for which types of questions.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at John Deere (Cedar Falls, IA) in November 2017.

    Interview

    Met company representatives at SHPE 2017, had an interview the next day for an hour with a company representative at their booth. An onsite interview was scheduled the following week in Cedar Falls, Iowa at the power systems facility. The interview and review process is very structured and they are very organized compared to other companies. Was flown out and had a whole day program with two other people. The day started with breakfast with other EDP engineers, presentation about company and two different interviews, each one hour. A factory tour was arranged, followed by a tour of the community. The interview was behavioral questions with technical questions asked about project/work that you chose to answer with.

    Software Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Des Moines, IA
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Interview

    The interviewer was disorganized, uninterested, and all over the place with their questions, even asking the same questions except worded differently. The interviewer even admitted to this, but I still think it is unfair to the candidate.

    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.

    Average Interview

    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.
