Average Interview

Application

I applied through a recruiter. The process took 1 dayinterviewed at Cerner (Kansas City, MO) in October 2014.

Interview

This was for an entry level position, so the interview portion was about an hour of a day-long affair. You are with other candidates for all parts of the day except the interviews. You are interviewed by two people, and one of the interviews focuses on behavioral-based questions. The interview questions are standard, and a little prep work in terms of coming up with example situations for interview sample questions would be helpful. Not being able to come up with example situations will definitely hurt you in this interview. You will also have the opportunity to talk to current staff during lunch.

Interview Questions

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 6 weeksinterviewed at Cerner (Kansas City, MO) in October 2014.

    Interview

    I initially met with a Cerner recruiter on campus and was contacted 2 weeks later to visit their KC headquarters and participate in the Experience Cerner Day. The company put me up in a Hilton hotel in downtown KC (by power and light district) and provided us with delicious meals. The first day consists of a tour of downtown KC and dinner. The second day you do 2 interviews (30 mins a piece). These interviews are very laid back and conversational. Remember that these are behavioral based interviews, so remember your STAR responses (Situation, Task, Action, Results). Overall a very positive experience

    I applied through college or university. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at Cerner (Kansas City, MO) in January 2011.

    Interview

    The interview process included an initial screening and a final round on site. My biggest contact with the company was my recruiter rather than a prospective supervisor becuase you don't learn of your placement until after you have accepted an offer and completed the training program. The on site was pretty simple for a final round included a couple of 1-on-1 interviews that were all situational interviews.

    Interview

    Cerner's Interview process was thourough, yet not too stressful. They did a great job of impressing me, making me feel welcome, but also challenging me in the interview process. the 1:1 interviews were fun, and the interviewers all had different styles. I found them personable, and immediately thought that I could see myself working with any one of them. They also paid for my travel and hotel expense. Loved it!

    Application

    The process took 1 dayinterviewed at Cerner (Kansas City, MO) in November 2010.

    Interview

    Went in for an interview along with several other candidates. They asked situational questions only such as "If you applied for a promotion and didn't get it, how did you handle this situation." They informed me that the job would require a 12 week training period and then you would get assigned to whatever position was open at the end of the twelve weeks. You were guaranteed a job at the end of the training, but not necessarily the job you wanted.

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 daysinterviewed at Cerner (Kansas City, MO) in October 2010.

    Interview

    Had three different interviews with the company. All the interviews were behavioral based. "Tell me about a time....." Also had to walk the interviewer through my resume and elaborate on my experience and education. All three of my interviews were very relaxed and they make you very comfortable. They also spend a lot of time talking about the company and the job description, which was very helpful. It was also a 1:1 ratio between how much you talk and how much the interviewer talks, which was nice.

    Reasons for Declining

    I am currently waiting for other interviews with future companies. Too early in the recruiting season to commit to this company
