    Engineer II Interview

    Anonymous Employee
    Accepted Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Progress Rail, A Caterpillar Company.

    Interview

    Very informal, and at times very unorthodox. The hiring manager was very informative about the company, but never really took the time to "interview me." I met with the HR Manager for less than 10 minutes and was informed that I would need to come back at a later date to complete the interview process. Total interview process took over a month of phone calls, medical exam, and a separate meeting for benefits review.
