It was mainly about writing some Xcode for parsing through an xml file and creating a property list to store information. I was also told to link tableview cells with the webpage in safari.

    interviewed at John Deere in October 2014.

    Interview Details

    Followed the standard STAR method of interviewing. The interviewer was very cool and easy to talk to. From what I learned, second interviews are conducted in Moline, Iowa. They messed up my interview time, but fortunately someone who hadn't left for lunch yet found a packet and interviewed me right on the spot

    Supply Base Manager Interview

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 1+ weekinterviewed at John Deere in October 2014.

    Interview Details

    They use the same process for an entry level position and for mid management positions. They use the "Targeted Selection" process by the book. This means that they want to predict future performance, but they use it also for employees that have been in the company for 20+ years. In this cases, instead of looking for actual results since they have the data, they still try to predict performance and they will choose a charistmatic person with high presentation skills over a current employee that has given excellent results for years.
    This process is excellent for new employees, but puts a roadblock on employees that have been successful and loyal for a long time. The other sad part is that prediction is not 100% accurate, so you end up with high level managers that had great interviews, but do not maximize business results.

    I applied through a staffing agency – interviewed at John Deere.

    Interview Details

    Fast interview. Friendly, relaxed atmosphere. Want the best people-dedicated & motivated. I was surprised at how approachable the supervisors were-very good first impression! I did feel like at points they just wanted to get throigh the interview, or maybe I was just talking too much.

    I applied through college or university. The process took a weekinterviewed at John Deere in September 2014.

    Interview Details

    Apply through the university and apply online. For this Accounting internship, you have to prepare your resume and review what you want to know about John Deere for the interview. I was interviewed at BYU's campus and had I done well the first time, I would have been invited for a second interview in Moline, Illinois. After the interview on campus, I lost interest.
