Velocity Software Engineer Interview

Velocity Software Engineer

I applied through college or university and the process took 2 months - interviewed at Cerner in June 2014.

Interview Details – Had my 1st HR Phone interview 2 months ago and they scheduled me for 2nd phone round a week ago. Second one was a phone-based interview that mostly focused on Technical and a bit behavioral aspects. I got to know in a couple of days that I got through my 2nd round as well and Now waiting on them to schedule my Onsite Interviews. Keeping my fingers crossed.

Interview Question – Nothing unexpected. Everything was from glassdoor information base. It really helps you to ease and ace your interview.   View Answer

Velocity Analyst Interview

Velocity Analyst

I applied through a recruiter - interviewed at Cerner in March 2014.

Interview Details – Was strongly recruited by Cerner via emails, etc. Interviewed by phone (which I thought was strange as they had a recruiter in the area?), very disorganized. They lost my resume, which I had uploaded to their site, and had me email to the interviewer in the middle of the conversation. Overall very awkward, ill-prepared on their part.

Interview Question – Can you email me your resume?   Answer Question

Occupational Health Center Manager Interview

Occupational Health Center Manager
Texarkana, TX

I applied online and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Cerner in March 2014.

Interview Details – I applied on-line through a job search website. I was contacted several times through email from Cerner's recruitment office. I had a phone interview and was scheduled for an in-person interview. I met with the hiring manager in person.

Interview Question – There weren't any difficult or unexpected questions. Cerner sent me an email with a link to their interview process. Through this link, I was able to view a YouTube video of an interview done by Cerner. This video showed both the right way and the wrong way to interview with them. Because of this, I was well prepared.   Answer Question
