    Pros

    Great development of people, strong alignment of goals between leadership and different groups, and great managers. A very standardized company which I feel leads to less disorganization that companies I've been in where it is highly disorganized due to no standardization. Lastly, it was a company where you as an individual contributor felt very valued.

    Cons

    Most manufacturing locations are in small towns so if your not a small town person or middle western type individual you should pass on the company. The only con I had was with the health insurance as Deere only offers a HDHP.

    Advice to Management

    Continue with the strong guidance and focus on the people

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at John Deere (Moline, IL).

    Interview

    There was a two-round interview process. My first round interview was at a conference with a panel interview with two interviewing me. The questions were general behavior questions where you explain your resume and answer basic questions. I heard back within the week and was informed I'd be moving on to the second stage. For the next round they fly you to HQ in Moline, Illinois. I was interviewed in a one-on-one stay with two different interviews. I was offered a position within the same week.

    Interview Questions
