John Deere is a factory that cares about its quality and production. There is no room for advancement. Jobs are given to friends of friends and education does not matter.

Welder (Former Employee), ankeny, iaJune 23, 2015
Pros: superb compensation and benefits
Cons: job could be physically demanding at times
Each day there was a department start up meeting to inform everyone of upcoming events and updates on department goals. we would then go to our stations and do our assigned tasks.
I was able to hone my skills as a forklift operator as well as go to the welding school and become an accomplished welder. I also was able to learn assembly skills in a manufacturing setting. Except for a few exceptions, my coworkers were helpful and generally we worked well together, many of which i was able to become friends with.

Assembler/Production (Former Employee), Thibodaux, LouisianaJune 19, 2015
Pros: learning new things
Cons: short lunch breaks
I learned how to assemble and disassemble mechanical equipment. A typical day at work started at 7 and ended at 4 p.m. My co-workers were great to work with and the management was great. The hardest part of the job was assembling huge mechanical parts. The most enjoyable part of the job was learning new things.

Great pay/benefit with no life
warehouse worker (Former Employee), mcdonough, GaJune 1, 2015
Pros: Pay/ benefits, overtime always available
Cons: no life, heavy parts, rarely have weekends off
I was hired last year and trained for 6-2:30 they ask if you are available any shift but really they only want you to work night shift. Right after training I was sent to 3-11:30 shift but never left at 11:30. No other shift works until the work is completed, except this one. You may not leave until 2-3 in the morning. Weekends were mandatory, 3 Saturday's in a row, pretty much every month. If you want a job that pays well but you have no time for your kids, family or personal life, or to enjoy the fruits of your labor, then this is the perfect place for you. Be willing to sacrifice your family and life once you start!
