    I applied online. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at Cerner in December 2013.

    The process was extended due to the change in their application pages for jobs and internships such as this one. But overall the process would have taken 3 weeks.

    Interview Questions
    • I was very disappointed with this interview, as I was told it was going to be a 'Technical Interview'. Well - it ended up being 80% situational and as you know, if you don't prepare, you don't perform.   Answer Question

    I applied online – interviewed at Cerner in May 2013.

    Interview Details

    1. Upload your resume
    2. Call from HR -> 10 -20 mins
       Mostly discuss about why Cerner and other personal educational details
    3. Technical call interview
       Couple of C++ and a couple of behavioral questions
    4. Onsite
       Awesome - they take you around the city, stay at Hilton, then next day 2 interview and take you around the city. Interview questions are mostly the same ones as mentioned earlier in other interview reviews

    Interview Questions
    • I had a question about null pointer exception. Mainly caused due to
      rows.getcolumn().getrow("something")
      Rows -> is an object.

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 daysinterviewed at Cerner in May 2013.

    Interview Details

    They spend a lot of money to showcase you their city,their workplace. Overall nice treatment you get, flight ride may be a bit bumpy due to frequent turbulence.

    Interview Questions
    • It is the case of a company located in awkward Mid- West where in they want to lure you by portraying it as "El-Dorado" . Would arrange a session by introducing you to former people (just recently cleared velocity) - Some of them not even from CS background, Some of them just knowing Matlab, And how they were made experts in Java and so and so. And telling us that even PHDs were disqualified when they applied -as they were overqualified. Strange people, Strange dressing etiquette , wear flip flops, shorts at work, In a way they encourage you to break rules, But if you dare to break them-they might turn against you, So better be suited / formals for the interview. Crazy people. Should be made tourism brand ambassadors for Kansas City by the Govt. of US. They promote Kansas tourism.   View Answers (2)
