    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at Cerner (Kansas City, MO) in June 2013.

    Interview

    Tech questions: chess design,test cases,foo..etc (same from other reviews) Initial phone call, trip to Kansas! Not any different from other reviews. It all depends on how you answer behavioral questions. Do your best in interview and hope for the best! Even if it goes great, just don't be so sure about it and keep looking for other jobs!! I think they prefer fresh graduates over someone with 1-2years of experience! They will let know within one week even if you're not selected. It was a good experience for me, I would recommend going for the interview.

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at Cerner (Kansas City, MO) in May 2013.

    Interview

    Met with two different managers who did mostly behavioral Interviewing. They did ask a few questions about specific languages that I had on my resume and wanted me to explain the learning process. I do believe they have changed the questions that they ask during the interview process to steer towards more technical questions.

    Interview Questions
