Application

I applied through college or university. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at John Deere in October 2016.

Interview

I talked with them at my school's career fair, and later that day one of the recruiters called me and scheduled an on-campus interview that week with one of their recruiters. After that interview, I was invited for an on-site interview at their main campus in Moline. There were four rounds of interviews with different managers at the company, each lasting around half an hour. Both interviews were behavioral following the STAR format. There were not any surprises really.

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at John Deere (Moline, IL) in February 2018.

    Interview

    Had two interviews. First one on campus, then received an email for a second round to their headquarter. Overall very organized second round. Second round was tough. Have two 50 min behavior questions with two different recruiters. Second recruiter doesn't seem to know the process. He literally asked me about 15 behavioral questions and barely wrote anything down. First guy was awesome. Overall pretty good experience. Got the offer 3/4 days later.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at John Deere (Monterrey, Nuevo León (Mexico)) in May 2018.

    Interview

    I meet human resources hiring team at a career fair in university.

    Gave my curriculum and got a phone call two weeks later.

    Phone interview was a personality check, and overall skills and background check.

    Was invited to an interview the same week at their plant. The interview was comfortable and not challenging, yet not regular.

    I didn't get an offer, they look for CAD design background and skills, which I didn´t had at the time.

    Interview Questions

    • What is the last thing you designed in CAD? What was the project about?   Answer Question

    the interview was STAR based. You had to give a situation, the time of the situation, the action you took and the result of the action. Pretty much you had to say what you did as an individual and not as a group.
