Application Details

I applied through a recruiter. The process took 4+ weeks - interviewed at Cerner.

The interview is very casual, they make you feel at ease. The interview is very situational based, so come in mind with specific examples of times you have succeded. You are interviewed by 3 different people, and it is OK to repeat storeis

    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter - interviewed at Cerner in March 2014.

    Interview Details

    Was strongly recruited by Cerner via emails, etc. Interviewed by phone (which I thought was strange as they had a recruiter in the area?), very disorganized. They lost my resume, which I had uploaded to their site, and had me email to the interviewer in the middle of the conversation. Overall very awkward, ill-prepared on their part.

    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 7+ weeks - interviewed at Cerner.

    Interview Details

    I had a contact in the company who referred me to a recruiting representative. He and I had an initial conversation, a follow-up conversation a few weeks later, and then from there a different recruiting coordinator. I then was asked to come to Kansas City, where I had a group day with 9 other individuals ranging from seniors in college to young professionals who are a few years out of college. We had a 24-hour "Experience Cerner Day", which toured the city, the Cerner facilities, and has two 30-minute interviews. The whole process took around 2 months from initial contact to in-person interview.

    Interview Questions
    • I wouldn't necessarily say it was incredibly difficult, but I was asked about my adaptability to situations--having to learn a different process or program in place of something I know already.   Answer Question

    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 months - interviewed at Cerner in April 2012.

    Interview Details

    Applied through campus career website, and was contacted within next week for phone interview. After successfully completing phone interview, was flown to Kansas City about 3 weeks later. Myself as well as about 30 applicants were invited to interview that day. The evening before the interview, Cerner took us all on a tour bus and gave us an official tour of Kansas City. At the end of the tour, we were dropped off at an upscale steakhouse downtown for an informal networking event. The seating arrangements were assigned, with one recruiter sitting at each table.

    The next day, the tour bus picked us up for interview day. Although Cerner encouraged us to dress casual, many dressed in suits (including myself). The day began with a presentation about Cerner, and then we were escorted upstairs to conduct 1:1 interviews. Each of us got our own private conference room, and were interviewed by 3 separate recruiters back-to-back for the next hour and a half. After interviews, we enjoyed lunch at Cerner's cafeteria, and then were dropped off at the airport shortly after.

    Cerner promised to follow up within the next two weeks. At the end of the two weeks, I received a call from the head recruiter saying that there was no job offer at this time.

    Interview Details

    After speaking with a recruiter at my school's career fair, I received an email about visiting Kansas City for Experience Cerner Day. It is basically a day filled with touring the city and the Cerner headquarters, and then you have your interviews. I had 2 one-on-one interviews, each filled with situational questions. They ask you to give a situation, describe what happened and what you chose to do, and then explain the results.
