    Consultant Interview

    Application Details

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 6 daysinterviewed at Kaiser Permanente in November 2014.

    Interview Details

    I went through 2 interviews: 1) with account manager at staffing firm. 2) with hiring manager and team at Kaiser. The team seemed uninterested from the beginning. In hindsight it is clear to me that I was a placeholder interview. I found out they already had candidates they offered the position to.

    Interview Questions
    • The hiring manager was back/forth with interview questions and actually nearly shouted a comment to me. I was very taken back by the gesture and emotions. It was very unexpected.   View Answer

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

    Interview Details

    The response to emails were very prompt, and scheduling an interview was not an issue. However, my original interview date had to be moved because the interviewer got caught up in meetings that day. We rescheduled and the interview went relatively well. I was told she will get back to me in one week about the decision.

    Interview Questions
    • The questions were pretty general, such as "what are 3 words to describe you. give an example of you have demonstrated each" & "why do you want to work for kaiser?"   Answer Question

    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
    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 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.

    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.
