    Interview Details

    it was a group interview consists of 30 applicates for 3 openings. it was setup in a classroom, where we had to stand up in front of the class and introduce ourselves( it was nerve recking) at the end they will call out names and ask them to stay in the class and those who don't hear their names have to leave. i didn't hear my name so i left. this is the second time i attend an interview with kaiser. i will try again maybe the third time is a charm.

    APPOINTMENT CLERK Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took a dayinterviewed at Kaiser Permanente in September 2014.

    Interview Details

    There was a group Interview of about 20 people. The panel was very positive and friendly. They gave off a really nice vibe. That helped, considering the anxiety of interviewing with so many people. They were pretty up front about the " ugly" of the job as well as the "perks". All of the questions were pretty standard and expected. Its been a week and I have not heard anything yet. Great pay, but if you are " on call" there are no benefits just yet. You only qualify for benefits once you become part time or full time.

    Interview Questions
    • I felt like I prepared very well for my interview, did lots of research on the company. The first question they asked was:

      If you could be an animal, what would it be and why? I was caught off guard with that one.

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Kaiser Permanente in August 2014.

    Interview Details

    I applied to the position online about a week later I received a call center assessment interview. I then received a call to set up interview it was a panel interview. I was asked general questions and from that point on I was told that I would hear back from a recruiter when a final decision was made regarding the selection. It was a pretty easy interview aside from the fact that I seemed to be overqualified.

    Financial Analyst Interview

    Application Details

    I applied online – interviewed at Kaiser Permanente.

    Interview Details

    Submitted my application online which was a detailed process but fortunately KP's career portal will save your info for future applications. Not not after my submission I received a call from what I believe was a representative from HR who wanted to coordinate a phone interview with the Assistant Controller. The phone interview was short and sweet, nothing too complex. I was invited to the first in-person interview where I interviewed with the Assistant Controller and Finance Manager one-on-one, answering fairly basic questions. Afterwards I had to take an Excel skills test which was fairly complex and covered advanced functions within excel, basic MS Acess skills, and even some SQL code. I did well enough on both the one-on-one and and Excel test to be invited to a panel interview where I presented multiple case questions I had emailed to me 48 hrs prior.

    Presentation Designer (Specialist) Interview

    Application Details

    I applied through a staffing agency – interviewed at Kaiser Permanente.

    Interview Details

    For the most part, the interviewing process was good. Kaiser is a very large organization, and some of that bureaucracy shows up in the interviewing process. I imagine it would be great company to work for though. Phone interview was great. In person interview was fine for the most part. Follow up skills test was fine as well. However, the follow-up communications regarding next steps after that could have been better.

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Kaiser Permanente.

    Interview Details

    I applied on-line - very easy process. After about 7-10 days I received phone call from human resources telling me that they would like me to come in for a group interview. I then received a detailed e-mail with instructions and directions for group interview, including the expected attire. This was my first group interview - it was strange at first but I soon felt comfortable. Everyone I dealt with from the security to the human resources personnel to the managers were extremely nice and very proffessional. They made you feel at ease, we were in a large meeting room, there were three Kaiser staff members and about ten interviewees. They set us into groups to get to know each other so we could introduce each other, then they gave us questions regarding previous work experience, stressful situations and the like.

    Senior Director Interview

    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter – interviewed at Kaiser Permanente in July 2014.

    Interview Details

    HR couldn't get the interviews scheduled and kept cancelling. Finally schedule everyone with 6 hours notice. After the interview, no follow-up. A simple email saying thanks would have been nice. I followed up with multiple emails. I think larger company's forget that potential employees also are performing an interview.

    Interview Questions
    • None. The interviewers really didn't interview for subject matter experience.   Answer Question
