Assembly Line Production Worker (Former Employee) –  Horicon, WIMarch 11, 2017
This world known company was great, teaching me to weld in a pain schooling course of 6 weeks, with a pay of $15.41 per hour, and I was placed on assembly after the welding class, and John deere would cherry pick their new welders off the assembly line when an extra welder was needed. And I kept me welding payrate while on assembly line
Pros
advancement and good pay
Cons
a few jerks work there thinking their john deere himself, a lot of self grandiose there

It was a safe, decent, well paying job with the best benefits anyone could ask for.
Shop Hand (Former Employee) –  Davenport, IAMarch 3, 2017
The summery of this is a typical day at John Deere was full of work. Work that is steady, very busy, can be difficult, is noisy, is hot in summer, cool in winter. It's shop work so there are many extremes to factor in. All in all working for John Deere was rewarding.
Pros
Great pay, great benefits
Cons
Working in close quarters to other personalities can be difficult at times

Just My Thoughts
Welder/Fabricator (Former Employee) –  Horicon, WIFebruary 21, 2017
Clock in at work, basically start working until break and have to be right back to work after break that all they care about numbers and quality. It is still a great place to work at just a lot of rules to follow by.
Pros
good pay and good benefits
Cons
all they care about is numbers and money

General Clerk (Current Employee) –  Milan, ILFebruary 19, 2017
Very long hours every day. Lunches are forced to be taken but you do NOT get to take them. No benefits. People who work the same job as you get paid different wages. Management struggles to communicate.
Pros
Decent Pay
Cons
Forced to clock out for lunch, NEVER got it.

Hard to advance unless you move to midwest
Quality Engineer II - Supervisor (Current Employee) –  Thibodaux, LAFebruary 15, 2017
Very decent company but you tend to get stuck where you are unless you are able to move around the country. Great opportunities to develop and travel with work. Very friendly to humanitarian and volunteerism efforts.

Middle managers need you to do all the work and are unlikely to look out for your career development.
Pros
stability
Cons
limited advancement

Sales Executive (Former Employee) –  Cedar Falls, IAFebruary 13, 2017
If you enjoy spending all your time at work and hardly any at home this is the perfect job. The employees are all very friendly, but because commissions are a major part of your income it is a very competitive atmosphere. Management could use a little improvement as well. A lot of favoritism goes on, which creates tension on the floor.
Pros
They do feed you on Saturdays
Cons
You are expected to work every Saturday but one the entire month, and you work long hours everyday.
