    I applied online. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at Cerner in November 2014.

    Interview Details

    I applied online through www.cerner.com and I received an email from a senior recruiter the very next day. Via email communication, we set up my phone interview which was about a week later (based on my availability) and it only lasted about 15 minutes. Within about a week I received a phone call inviting me to "Explore Cerner day". Explore Cerner day consists of two days. The first day is a tour of the city followed by a very nice dinner at a beautiful restaurant where you are able to meet and discuss the company with current associates. The following day, we had a early morning presentation immediately followed by two separate interviewers. After the interview we had another presentation followed by lunch on campus. After lunch there were three associates who came in and we had the opportunity to have a panel discussion. About a week and a half later I received an offer letter. This was more than my requested starting salary, so I was pleased.

    Application Details

    I applied online – interviewed at Cerner in November 2014.

    Interview Details

    I applied for the position online with my CV and cover letter. I had applied to the job about 10-14 days before I received a phone interview. I spoke to the HR representative and she mainly asked me about my experience, no behavioral questions. She also asked me about what I was expecting from the position and she told me I would find out this week whether or not I will move forward. I interviewed last Monday so I am hoping to hear back by Friday about whether or not I made it. If I make it to the next round I'll be sure to enlighten you further!

    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took 5 weeksinterviewed at Cerner in November 2014.

    Interview Details

    I applied to Cerner through their campus recruiting. A week or so after talking with them on campus and submitting my resume/application, I received an email for an initial phone screening. The phone screening consisted of the basics about Cerner, as well as a behavioral question or two that were very easy. After this, I was emailed with an offer to the Experience Cerner day. We were put up in a nice hotel and had a tour/dinner provided by Cerner. On Cerner day, I interviewed with two employees. They were two 30-minute interviews, and they were strictly behavioral/ "Do you like the KC area." It was a pleasant experience.
         After two weeks, I began to get antsy and emailed my recruiter about my interview results. Two days later, I received an offer of employment with Cerner, which I plan to accept.

    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 5 weeksinterviewed at Cerner in October 2014.

    Interview Details

    The interview was a two-day process. Took us on a tour of KC, then had a 3 course meal to talk with recruiters. Very informative and relaxed, but that's where the interview starts, so ask questions. The night was on us, so we went to the Power & Light District for a beer that night. Next day were the interviews. Surprisingly laid back, with 2 interviews that were 30 minutes. Got a small tour of the campus after that and ate some lunch. All in all I had a fun experience. Good company culture.
