Product Engineer Interview

Average Interview

Application

I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at John Deere (Moline, IL) in October 2014.

Interview

Behavioral Questions, situation questions. Mainly they seem to be interested in what you can provide the company, and how you would fit into a team. Are you going to cause problems or be an asset to the company. Technical side of things seems to be secondary to being able to interact effectively in a team. If you are sociable and competent in engineering you should be fine.
