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

    First, I had a 30 minute telephone interview with the recruiter which mainly focused on my resume. A week later, I had an hour-long interview via a webcam with a software engineer in Kansas City. I was asked again about my background, some behavioral questions (strengths, weaknesses, etc.), and I was asked to write some general code based on 2 problems. A few days later, I interviewed in person at Cerner. I had to whiteboard a few coding questions and was asked many of the same general questions as in the previous interviews.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a weekinterviewed at Cerner in April 2015.

    Interview

    Got response in ONE week and schedule a HR interview. Last for 50 minutes. The interview let you describe you current job, describe yourself and your current employment authorization status. They asked a lot about how you did testing in your job because 80% of their codes are used for testing. I think it would be nice if you have similar experience. The recruiter is nice, patient and very willing to answer questions. Ask everything you want to know about the company and position.
