What Graduates Say About Them
  • John Deere has given me an opportunity to work in a field that encompasses both my passions in Machinery and Agriculture.
  • The graduate program offers a fantastic opportunity to rotate around the various teams within the business, and complete/assist in projects. There is a huge amount of exposure as a result, and we are extremely well supported in rotating to areas that we are interested in.
  • An improvement would be more time out of office working in field roles.
  • The worst thing about working at my company is the lack of social events in last year due to Covid. It is reduced a lot due to Covid in last 2 years.
