Velocity Consultant Interview

Velocity Consultant
Kansas City, MO

I applied through college or university and the process took 4+ weeks - interviewed at Cerner in November 2010.

Interview Details – The process consisted of a few interviews on campus followed by 2 or three more at Cerner's Kansas City headquarters. Everyone that I spoke with was very nice but the complete lack of career ownership was a big turnoff. You bascially sign on to join Cerner and they put you wherever they want or need you after the initial training. It is probably a good system for people who have no idea what they want but I wanted more input into my career progression. All of the interviews were standard behavioral questions, none of which were difficult or out of the ordinary.

Interview Question – Describe a time when you had a difficult group project to complete and what steps did you take to complete it.   Answer Question

Velocity Consultant Interview

Velocity Consultant
Kansas City, MO

I applied through college or university and the process took 4 weeks - interviewed at Cerner in April 2010.

Interview Details – The interview is fairly simple, it is very important to bring your personality to the interview and to go into details with your answers. Cerner for this position is very behavioral focused, so the only types of questions I got during the interviewing process was strictly behavioral.

Also, there is a video online on youtube on how to be good at the interview, I would recommend looking at it.
