Senior Systems Analyst Interview

Senior Systems Analyst
San Diego, CA

I applied online and the process took 4+ weeks - interviewed at Kaiser Permanente in October 2013.

Interview Details – Sent in my resume one night, heard back the following morning from the recruiter via email, who sent me a questionnaire. Filled that out that day and sent it back. Heard back the following morning again from the recruiter already trying to set a salary level. They asked me to come in the next morning to interview with the LSA, but due to some personal things, I couldn't the next morning, and so I accepted an interview with their colleague and department head (at the same time). I thought the interview went very well, but I never heard back from the recruiter. I emailed the recruiter immediately after the interview thanking them for setting up the interview and for considering me. I called again a week later to thank them again and told them why I was right for the position. Never heard back. Emailed two weeks later with similar info asking when a decision would be made. Heard back a week later from a generic email saying I was disqualified.

The work culture looked great; people dressing both casually and business casual with headphones in their ears as they came in and out of the building. Very clean looking building with security in the front to check in with.

Difficult Interview

Senior Analyst Interview

Senior Analyst
Pasadena, CA

I applied through an employee referral and the process took 3 days - interviewed at Kaiser Permanente.

Interview Details – The interview was conducted by the Assistant Chief Learning Officer, the PM and two Analysts. The initial communication was with the PM first by phone and then by e-mail.

Negotiation Details – The negotiation phase was difficult and it was done through the HR Consultant. We went back and forth several times but were able to come to an agreement when I was able to factor in the benefits.

Senior Analyst Interview

Senior Analyst
Oakland, CA

The process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Kaiser Permanente in August 2009.

Interview Details – I was contacted by a Kaiser recruiter if I would be interested for a Senior Analyst position. I didn't apply to the position originally but I think she found my profile from the KP site. The interview process was pretty clear. The recruiter that found me was very helpful. She offered tips for my phone interview so I can advance to the next interview process. The interview was composed of a phone interview, a face-to-face interview with a Senior Manager and a Senior Analyst, a skills test, and lastly a face-to-face interview with a Senior Consultant and Executive Director. After a couple of days, I was offered the position. The entire process was pretty straight forward.

Senior Financial Analyst Interview

Senior Financial Analyst
San Francisco, CA

I applied online and the process took a day - interviewed at Kaiser Permanente in June 2011.

Interview Details – The interview was really fun. I know you really can't say that about most interviews, but the two individuals interviewing me for this position were intelligent, friendly, and engaging.

I was lucky to go straight from the online application to filling out an additional set of questions after my resume/application was reviewed (intended to assess my skill level in various areas) to the in-person interview, as usually there is a phone interview prior to a 1:1 interview) because I happened to be in the city interviewing for other positions over the period of time my phone interview was scheduled. The interview questions were really easy for me to answer because the job fit perfectly with my past experience; the questions were focused on assessing my technical, analytic and interpersonal skills.

Despite the fact that I got three really great job offers over those few days, this company really made an impression on me because of the culture and the fact that my new boss(es) would really be fantastic; I accepted the position.

Interview Question – What experience do you have with EPIC and Cognos?   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – The questionnaire sent to me prior to an interview being offered to me included five questions, one of which was to specify salary expectations. I specified (and was honest) about what I was offered to stay at my current job in a different city and then inflated that amount to adjust for an increased cost of living. The whole process worked out well.

Senior Financial Analyst Interview

Senior Financial Analyst
Oakland, CA

I applied online and the process took 3 weeks - interviewed at Kaiser Permanente in January 2009.

Interview Details – I applied online, and got a call within a few days to come in and interview. I interviewed with two people and was offered the position the next day. The interview process was fairly painless, but mine was the exception. As a rule most of the interviews I have heard of involve at least one or more panel interviews along with some sort of skills testing.
