Average Interview

Application

I applied through an employee referral. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at John Deere (Waterloo, IA) in June 2009.

Interview

I was contacted by HR to interview. The interview was with a manager and co-worker in the group I would be working in. The questions were all behavioral about myself. Fairly laid back and enjoyable.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at John Deere (Moline, IL) in November 2013.

    Interview

    Very easy process. Typical behavioral interview questions. Not something to worry about. A lot of teamwork related questions and questions about why you want to work for them, why you picked your major, etc. Want to see that you are a leader and work best when on a team. The entire interview process consisted of one 1:2 interview. I have heard of others who had initial phone interviews. One thing to be aware of: Almost everyone who is a part time student whom I have talked to is struggling to have enough work to fill their time. This seems to be a large problem with John Deere's part time student and internship positions.

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at John Deere (Waterloo, IA).

    Interview

    Very good. Was a smooth interview and they made you feel welcome. Ask tough questions but were very relative to the job. Only thing I wish they would have told me more about the job day-to-day and general information when I asked.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at John Deere (Waterloo, IA) in January 2012.

    Interview

    The initial contact was done through an email, which was followed up by an initial phone interview/screen. They just wanted to check my credentials. They followed through with all of the former employees I had listed on my resume, so make sure they are all legitimate. The face-to-face interview took place about a month later. It was in a small room and I was interviewed by 3 employees including my soon to be boss, his boss, and an HR representative. It was fairly intimidating, but they were friendly about it. Dress up as much as possible.

    Interview Questions

    • They asked a lot about team work and what I had done personally in the past to show that I can work well in a team. It was a difficult question to answer because they put you in a place where it might be necessary for you to brag a little about your past experiences. Personally, I wasn't very comfortable with this, but it worked out alright.   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    Salary is a flat rate based on your school year for part-time students.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at John Deere.

    Interview

    The office design is amazing, it is incredibly nice and massive! The interview process involved 3 individuals and the STAR process. The interview was three parts and began with questions over my résumé, then normal team as past experience questions based on the star system. Finally wrapping up with casual personal questions and then they have me a chance to ask them questions.

    Interview

    I received a phone screen followed by an actual interview, which was mostly behavioral after some resume based questions. It lasted maybe 40 minutes, and I got to ask some questions at the end. Since I wasn't able to be there in person for the interview, they conducted it via skype.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at John Deere (Waterloo, IA) in December 2014.

    Interview

    I applied online. Was called a week or 2 after submitting application. Went in for an interview. Interview was hard at first becuase it was my first "real" business interview. Very situational based so know the STAR method. They expect a start answer for each of the questions. I have interviewed 3 different times with Deere and each interview was the same format. Unfortunately the hiring manager was having a family emergency for most of the month following my interview, so I went some time with no answer. Found out I got the job and started within 2-3 weeks.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at John Deere (Champaign, IL) in March 2016.

    Interview

    After applying online, I had a phone interview with three people. They reach back to me after 3 weeks later for the onsite interview. It was mostly behavior questions. After 4 weeks, they finally reach back to me. I think there recruiting system is slow for part time student. After accepting the offer, they had hair test and background check.
