    Territory Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate

    Application Details

    I applied through other source. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at John Deere.

    Interview Details

    Long process, took over a month. Hiring Manager was very good. numerous tests (personality, profile and directional). total of about 4 interviews in person. Being such a large company, mostly driven by the States, conference call interviews and I guess internal back and forth make things a little longer.

    On first week, orientation was very elaborate and thorough.

    Application Details

    I applied through other source – interviewed at John Deere.

    Interview Details

    Very skewed and HR thinks behaves as very very oversmart and you have to be alert that they are not pulling wool over your eyes especially about Short Term Incentive (called STI) in your salary.

    Interview Questions
    • Why are you looking to change jobs (in the third HR round) when that was already told in first telephonic round, then first face-to-face conversation with the manager.   Answer Question
    Negotiation Details
    Have to be very alert with what is being offered so that you don't get sold a dummy! HR acts very very very oversmart and you have to know how to cut them to size.
