Application Details

I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Cerner in January 2011.

Interview Details

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!

    I applied through college or university. The process took 3 weeks - interviewed at Cerner in January 2011.

    Interview Details

    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.

    The process took a day - interviewed at Cerner in November 2010.

    Interview Details

    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 Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 days - interviewed at Cerner in October 2010.

    Interview Details

    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.

    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 months - interviewed at Cerner in March 2009.

    Interview Details

    I applied for the position through my university and was asked to come interview. I had an inital interview with someone from HR, then was passed onto the 2nd round, in which I had 3 30-minute interviews. I passed that and then was asked to come out for "Experience Cerner" day. I was told by my recruiter that they were "working out numbers" but my offer would be in the mail within 2 weeks. After over 2 weeks passed and I contacted her, she regretted to inform me that they had to put a hiring freeze on the position. I was basically misguided and then screwed in the end. I was also disappointed with the fact that I had to reach out to HER to discover this surprising information.
