    Was impressed by how quickly Cerner got back to me for a phone interview. They quickly offered to fly me out, but then decided it would be too expensive. I did two skype interviews instead.

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Cerner in January 2012.

    Interview Details

    My first interview was a phone interview, with very basic questions, mostly protocol related questions. We then proceeded to schedule a skype interview for my second interview since I was still in school and lived out of state. The skype interview was three rounds of interviews with different people with more behavioral based questions, not super hard but required some thought. Make sure to be as specific as possible when answering these questions because they want actual scenarios.

    Interview Questions
    • The most difficult question for me was a question about handling a change at work and how I adapted to it. Since I was working mostly basic jobs throughout college I had a hard time initially thinking of a specific situation.   Answer Question
    Negotiation Details
    They offered me what I expected and a relocation package, so I was pleased.

    Started off with a 30 minutes phone interview and at the end of it they requested that I fly out to Kansas City to continue the interview process.

    I applied online. The process took 5 weeksinterviewed at Cerner.

    Interview Details

    I submitted an application online via their website. Three weeks later, I received an email for a phone interview. The questions were standard HR questions like if I was a legal resident. They then asked about education and work experience. They asked one situational based question and by the end of the call, they invited me to fly to KC, MO. They paid for flights, hotel and food. Everything was extremely organized and they kept to the itinerary the entire time. Everyone was very welcoming and friendly. The in-person interview consisted of two, back to back, thirty minute interviews. You sat in an office and waited for the Cerner employee to enter. Basic interview questions. The first was behavioral type and the second was situational questions. They are one on one interviews. From there, they say you will hear back from them with an offer or not between 1-2 weeks.

    I applied through college or university – interviewed at Cerner in October 2013.

    Interview Details

    I met a recruiter at the Career Fair on my University's campus in Mid-September, and the first week of October they emailed me and invited me to the Experience Cerner Day. I went for the 2 day interview in mid-October with about 30 other students. The first afternoon we went on a tour of Kansas City, and then went back to the hotel for a laid back dinner. There were several Cerner employees there who were nice and answered any questions we had. The next day we went to the World Headquarters and had two 20-30 minute interviews. They weren't too hard, and the interviewers were very laid back, and friendly. Afterwards, we toured the headquarters, had a few overviews of the company, and lunch. I received a call exactly one week after my interview with a job offer.

    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter – interviewed at Cerner in February 2014.

    Interview Details

    After meeting with a representative of Cerner at my university's career fair I was contacted and asked to give a list of times I was available for a phone interview to "briefly discuss this opportunity". I was expecting a short informational interview, but it was about 40 minutes with full behavioral questions (which I did not expect, and honestly was not very prepared for). Though I had a fantastic experience talking with the analyst that I visited with on my college campus, my interaction with the recruiter over the phone felt very awkward and I did not expect an offer as we just could not get a good conversation going at all. If they contact you for an interview, just be prepared to fully answer behavioral questions and give very specific examples for the two questions listed below.

    Interview Questions
    • Describe how you would train someone on a task.   Answer Question
    • Give an example of a time when you had to creatively solve a problem.   Answer Question
