    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took a weekinterviewed at Cerner.

    Interview

    The interview process is well organized and swift. My hiring recruiter was very helpful and responded quickly to emails. The interview questions are not out-of-this-world difficult. If you do well in school and are a competent computer scientist, you will be able to give good answers. They will look for your skills and interests so they can figure out which team at Cerner (if any) you belong to.

    Interview Questions

    • Design a class to hold data about something medical related, like an allergy or medicine. Answer a few behavioral questions involving group work.   Answer Question

    I applied online with a submission of a resume and cover letter. I got an e-mail to schedule a phone interview 2 days later. Phone interview with the recruiter was really easy going. The recruiter allowed me to answer any questions I had and answered all of them. At the end of phone interview, I was invited to experience Cerner day. (Will update after I attend).

    I applied online. The process took 4 daysinterviewed at Cerner.

    Interview

    Got a call from HR, which was followed by video interview by some solution architect. He asked me the same allergy question and SQL related queries. I was asked to write code for the allergy question , which included writing methods for manipulating data. A lot of SQL related questions , use of %? The worst part is that they never get back to you. You can waste your time mailing them but its all in vain. If you don't hear from them after a week from your video interview. MOVE ON

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3+ monthsinterviewed at Cerner (Malvern, PA).

    Interview

    I applied to be a recruiting assistant online through a job search engine and received an email about two weeks later requesting an interview. After that I had a video interview two weeks after the offer, followed by a second phone interview shortly after. The job was offered, but sadly I was unable to take it, because of timing with my other job which required I stay on for another month and Cerner could not push back the start date. Thankfully, two weeks after I could not take the job I received an email from a different recruiter asking if I would be interested in a different position - Executive Assistant. After two phone interviews and an in person interview, I was was given an offer. The second interview process took a month.

    Interview Questions

    • Tell me about a time when you worked with a difficult person. What three things are you looking for in a job? Where do you see yourself professionally in ten years? How would you handle being inexperienced in this job? What past experience equips you for this role? Several situational/experience questions.   Answer Question

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at Cerner (Kansas City, MO) in July 2015.

    Interview

    I applied online through the website. A recruiter contacted me via email on the next day to set up a phone interview. The phone interview was about 30 minutes long and consisted of some situational questions and a lot of applying prior experience to this job. At the end of the interview, the recruiter informed me that they were going to send me some information regarding "Experience Cerner Day." Upon reading the information and filling out some more questions, I selected an Experience Cerner Day (which is always on a Fridays). They flew me out to KC on a Thursday afternoon and have you stay in a hotel in downtown. The next day another recruiter comes on a bus to pick up all of the applicants in the hotel lobby, and they give you a small tour of KC. The final step is when they take you to Cerner World Headquarters in North Kansas City where they give an overview of the position, then you go through 2 interviews back to back that last 30 minutes apiece with 2 different Cerner associates. After the interview they have about a 30 minute Q&A with 2 associates who have gone through this process and worked for Cerner for at least a year. This part was informal and doesn't necessarily count against you in the process if you don't have any questions, but there was some valuable information exchanged during this time. After that they take you back to the airport if you flew in, or they take you back to your car at the hotel if you drove there.
