I applied through a recruiter. The process took a week. I interviewed at Cerner.
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.

I applied online. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at Cerner.
I applied online with a submission of a resume and cover letter. I got an e-mail to schedule a phone interview 2 days later. Phone interview with the recruiter was really easy going. The recruiter allowed me to answer any questions I had and answered all of them. At the end of phone interview, I was invited to experience Cerner day. (Will update after I attend).

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

I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Cerner (Kansas City, MO) in July 2015.
I applied online through the website. A recruiter contacted me via email on the next day to set up a phone interview. The phone interview was about 30 minutes long and consisted of some situational questions and a lot of applying prior experience to this job. At the end of the interview, the recruiter informed me that they were going to send me some information regarding "Experience Cerner Day." Upon reading the information and filling out some more questions, I selected an Experience Cerner Day (which is always on a Fridays). They flew me out to KC on a Thursday afternoon and have you stay in a hotel in downtown. The next day another recruiter comes on a bus to pick up all of the applicants in the hotel lobby, and they give you a small tour of KC. The final step is when they take you to Cerner World Headquarters in North Kansas City where they give an overview of the position, then you go through 2 interviews back to back that last 30 minutes apiece with 2 different Cerner associates. After the interview they have about a 30 minute Q&A with 2 associates who have gone through this process and worked for Cerner for at least a year. This part was informal and doesn't necessarily count against you in the process if you don't have any questions, but there was some valuable information exchanged during this time. After that they take you back to the airport if you flew in, or they take you back to your car at the hotel if you drove there.

I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Cerner (Kansas City, KS).
There was two phone interviews with behavior questions and then two face to face interviews in Kansas City. After being hired I talked with others and we all went through the same interview process. The interview process felt like the company was more interested in trying to get warm bodies into desk chairs so they could work rather than an genuine interest in what I was capable of doing for Cerner.

I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Cerner (Kansas City, MO).
It moved fairly quickly. I applied online, received an email from a recruiter within days, then had a phone interview and an in-person interview in Kansas City. Cerner covered my travel and hotel expenses. They use behaviorally-based interview questions in which they want to know who was involved, what the situation was, and your actions.
