Average Interview

Application

I applied through a recruiter. The process took a week. I interviewed 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

    Application

    The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Cerner (New York, NY).

    Interview

    The whole process took about one month, from initial phone call to offer letter. Frankly speaking the interview standard is pretty basic and if you are a CS student, consider yourself selected. They haven't changed the type of questions asked during interview, follow previous interviews and you should be good to go. The whole process was smooth enough but there was one thing i disliked about Cerner. In my first interview i was promised a relocation amount of something but when i got the offer they changed it and refused to go back to original promised amount which is 60% less than original. After you get the offer letter ask as many questions as you have before signing it, they try to close the deal without specifying about the sign on bonus. On and all pretty easy interview. Good luck!

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Cerner (Brooklyn, NY) in July 2015.

    Interview

    After applying online for an open entry level position in the company, a recruiter from the company emailed me. We scheduled a time to talk and I was mostly asked about my resume, project experiences, school work, and programming ability. The recruiter then put me into the first round of interviews with a software engineer. It was over HireVue, and I was asked questions about work I have done in school, what languages I most comfortable with, and a couple coding questions. I passed that interview, and now I am going into the final round of interviews with the company. I will update my experience once that is done.
