    Executive Assistant Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Fairfax, VA
    Anonymous Employee in Fairfax, VA
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 6 weeksinterviewed at Kaiser Permanente in February 2015.

    Interview Details

    This was a phone interview; they emailed first requesting time and day. I was unprepared for this interview thinking I could do it without preparation so I learned a lesson from this interview which cost me the job or second, face to face interview. Overall these interviews at this company are looking for one or two things and if you do not seem to have this one thing (even though you have the 50 other things and 15 years experience) they start getting negative. Had two interviews with this company and both were negative.

    Consultant - Market Strategy Interview

    Anonymous Employee

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at Kaiser Permanente in January 2015.

    Interview Details

    Applied online. HR person responded back with a questionnaire to fill out stating salary requirements and to respond to a few questions. Got a response back that the max salary for this was well below my current salary. I decided to proceed anyway. Did a 1 on 1 with a sr mgr (1h). They are quick to schedule you in but did not tell me it was 1h long. Luckily I could push back my other meeting. But the call was a very structured interview, not a lot of time to answer questions about the organization on their part though. Easy case study. Second round included coming into their office. I met with the same senior mgr again for an hour. Lot of open-ended questions, no structure to the interview this time. Where do you see yourself in 5 years, etc. Questions seem to come on the fly. Again, not a lot of time to answer questions so I can understand their organization. In the end she cut it short, as it was probably evident that this was my practice interview as I was gearing up for other interviews not related to health care. They want someone dedicated to health care market strategy (not too many job openings in this realm so if this is truly what you want, then make sure you do your research around this). I think a market strategist coming from a CPG, CE or any other industry could be a good fit to this role, just have to be be nimble enough to respond to the current regulatory issues around healthcare but all industries will have constraints.

    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 6 daysinterviewed at Kaiser Permanente.

    Interview Details

    I got an email to attend an interview in about a week and had time to prepare for it. The interview wasn't too difficult or out of the ordinary, but be prepared to speak for a group as there tends to be 2-3 interviewers. The head interviewer didn't think I was ready, but the other two liked me as a candidate. Oh well. Took them 4 weeks or so to get back to me after that.

    Application Details

    The process took 2+ monthsinterviewed at Kaiser Permanente.

    Interview Details

    Kaiser's hiring process can take 3-6 months, be patient. They make a point of having interviewees speak with only relevant personnel. Since KP's marketing group uses focused analytics in its preparation for, execution and testing/measuring, a member of the analytics team will surely be part of the interview. The process takes a while, but it's to the point.

    I applied online and received a phone call from HR for an invitation to a telephone interview. The telephone interview was pretty straight forward, nothing tricky or unexpected. I was then informed that if chosen to move forward, I would receive an email invitation to a group interview. I received the invitation and had to respond right away. The group interview was well organized, nothing tricky.
