    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+ weeksinterviewed 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.

    I applied through a recruiter – interviewed at Cerner.

    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.

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at Cerner.

    Interview Details

    There was an initial screening call to give the recruiter a "feel" for what I was like and whether I'd be a good fit for the company. From there, we scheduled an official phone interview which was held roughly a week later. The screening and interview calls were somewhat relaxed compared to others that I've had. Be comfortable with your skills, strengths, weaknesses, etc. before the call but remember to be yourself and show your personality as well.

    Following the phone interview, the recruiter contacted me within that week and presented an invite to "Experience Cerner Day" at their main campus. During ECD, we were given handouts, relocation tips, information on how the first few months would be if we were, indeed, hired, and finally 2-3 rounds of interviews were conducted with current employees.

    Interview Questions
    • Do you have any questions to ask me? - This is a common question in interviews. Remember who is interviewing you at the time, though!
      Recruiter = Benefits, Hours, Next steps, etc.
      Current Employee = Ask about personal experiences, pros and cons, etc. They like when they can offer insight to potential new hires.

    Interview Details

    I submitted an application online. I got a call a few days later. Recruiter asked me a few basic questions then offered me an interview at the World Headquarters in Kansas City. They put us (group of 40-50) in a hotel and took us out to dinner at a delicious Italian restaurant. The next day we went to the campus. The interview was first. Three different managers interview each person. They ask about your background and why you want to work at Cerner. They are making sure you have good communication skills and will be flexible on the position you are ultimately given. The point of the interviews are to see if you will fit in with the Cerner culture.

    I did not negotiate I knew the ballpark range that they offer from glassdoor and they were in the maximum already. I got very close to what I asked for so no need to negotiate.
