    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Kansas City, KS
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Kansas City, KS
    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at Cerner in February 2015.

    Interview Details

    The company contacted me via linked-in. Started with a phone interview to see if I was interested in a position. After the 30 min phone interview I was asked when would be a good time to come and have a face to face interview. They paid for the hotel and reimbursed with gift cards for gas and mileage. it was a half day of 3 different interviews for 3 different people for 3 different positions within the company. Overall they seemed like standard interview questions with only a few technical questions overall.

    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took a dayinterviewed at Cerner in February 2015.

    Interview Details

    I received an e-mail with an interview code. It asked that I secure an *.aol mail address and download aol IM tool. I replied to an e-mail with one simple question: Can this interview be conducted over the phone? Instead of answering my question, Cerner replied including the following: … depending on how fast & Intelligent you are ... report tomorrow at 08:00am CST ... You are to follow up by …. I did not feel comfortable with this approach. Firstly, I did not apply for this job, a Compass recruiter sent me a solicitation. Secondly, I found their response to be condescending, commanding and demanding. This is not the approach I would expect from a professional recruiter.

    I was promoted so the interview was just a informal chat with the manager of the position. It was easy and there was no pressure. When I had my initial interview it was pretty easy also.

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at Cerner in December 2014.

    Interview Details

    I submitted an application on their career website and was contacted the next day. I had a phone screening where we went over my resume and then I was flown to Kansas City three weeks later. In Kansas City I had two 20-30 minute sit down conversations with current Cerner employees who signed up to interview candidates. The questions were all behavioral and the interviewers were both really easy to talk to. I was offered the position two weeks later.

    Interview Details

    Interview process was very quick. Talked to a recruiter at a career fair, one week later had one phone interview, a week after that two more phone interviews, and after one more week I had an offer. All rounds of interviews had the same type of questions. Mostly talking about old projects you've worked on and then at the end a question about designing a class to do some kind of task.
