    Application Details

    I applied through college or university – interviewed at Cerner.

    Interview Details

    Entirely behavioral interview consisting of 3 interviews. Typically they'll cycle 3 people through 3 different interviews for 30 minutes. This is fairly easy and they seem to use just about anyone across the company to conduct these interviews. Overall it's pleasant and either occurs on campus or at their facility. Once this take place, if you're a college hire they provide an "experience cerner" day where you show up to campus and walk around.

    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.

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Cerner in February 2015.

    Interview Details

    First had a phone interview asking to explain my resume and one behavioral question regarding what I would do in a certain situation. Was immediately invited for an interview on site for the following week. Was flown up for the onsite interview and put in a nice hotel for the night. Had a tour of the city the night before the interviews and a dinner with some current employees. The day of the interview had two back to back thirty minute interviews with current employees that asked all behavioral questions. Interviewed on a Friday heard back on a Tuesday so very fast turn around.

    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 applied online. The process took 2 daysinterviewed at Cerner in February 2015.

    Interview Details

    Pleasant, and a very accommodating. On Thursday (Feb 26), we were taken on a tour of Kansas City, MO, followed by a dinner at the Hilton in downtown KC. Most interviewees stayed at the Sheraton, but i am a KC native so I didn't need that accommodation. On Friday, we were to be at Cerner for the interviews and Experience Cerner day. There were 2 30 minute interviews, that were relatively relatively low stress if you came prepared. In all, a great experience.

    Went to a information session at school. Submitted my resume at a career fair. Heard from a recruiter a month later.

    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.
