    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 3+ monthsinterviewed at Cerner in April 2012.

    Interview Details

    I was contacted quickly to start my interview process after I had submitted my resume and application.
    While setting up the interview process, I interviewed once, but had to wait about 2 months to hear back from the recruiter, who had previously stated that it would be sooner. Understandably, this is part of the process.
    Once I was notified of my offer, I was called very soon afterward to speak to my future manager and executive. After this, the process was swift, and entailed very little work on my part, apart from calling and keeping in contact with the company.

    The Interview process is pretty moderate. First round is HR. Questions based on Resume such as Work Exp (if any) or Academic Projects and other some basic questions. Second Round is Technical. These both rounds are on Phone. If you clear these rounds then you get call for onsite interview. 2 one hr interviews based on behavioral and Technical questions.

    Started with a phone-interview. Basic behavioral questions regarding goals and past experiences. Second interview was also by phone. Consisted of talking 1 on 1 with an engineer. Second interview had more technical questions compared to the first interview. The technical questions were pretty simple and should be information that most freshman in CS should know.

    An aptitude round initially,Then a HR round and finally a technical round. The process was not very tough. Do the HR round well and be strong in basics for the technical round. The technical round did vary from person to person. Some had an hour long technical interview while some had a 10 min session. So be confident and answer everything assertively.
