    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took a weekinterviewed at Cerner.

    Interview

    The interview process is well organized and swift. My hiring recruiter was very helpful and responded quickly to emails. The interview questions are not out-of-this-world difficult. If you do well in school and are a competent computer scientist, you will be able to give good answers. They will look for your skills and interests so they can figure out which team at Cerner (if any) you belong to.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3+ monthsinterviewed at Cerner (Malvern, PA).

    Interview

    I applied to be a recruiting assistant online through a job search engine and received an email about two weeks later requesting an interview. After that I had a video interview two weeks after the offer, followed by a second phone interview shortly after. The job was offered, but sadly I was unable to take it, because of timing with my other job which required I stay on for another month and Cerner could not push back the start date. Thankfully, two weeks after I could not take the job I received an email from a different recruiter asking if I would be interested in a different position - Executive Assistant. After two phone interviews and an in person interview, I was was given an offer. The second interview process took a month.

    Interview Questions

    • Tell me about a time when you worked with a difficult person. What three things are you looking for in a job? Where do you see yourself professionally in ten years?
