    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at Kaiser Permanente (Aurora, CO) in January 2015.

    Interview

    Hasty and in retrospect, sloppy. While I was happy to be contacted over the "nothing gets done" holiday period, I was pressed to commit to a panel interview before leaving for vacation. I made time, and was told 'd have an answer by XX which was right before vacation. I didn't hear from them until I got back. Not knowing was at the back of my mind during my trip. While my vacation wasn't ruined, I was distracted.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Kaiser Permanente (Los Angeles, CA) in October 2014.

    Interview

    Your first interview is a group interview which consists of 9 other job applicants. You're given 5 minutes to get to know the person next to you. You then introduce them summarizing the information they provided. Next, they go around the room twice so that you answer two questions that are CBI (Critical Behavior Interviewing) questions which are randomly selected. The next and last interview is with the Manager and staff of the department for the position.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Kaiser Permanente in June 2014.

    Interview

    I easily applied online. Once you get your info in the kaiser Talent network its pretty easy to apply for other jobs within the company. I then received a call to come in and interview. I was interviewed by two managers who were very polite and professional. Interview went well but I think I may have been over qualified for the position at hand. That being said I am still applying in hopes to soon become part of the Kaiser family.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at Kaiser Permanente.

    Interview

    Panel interviews are conducted. No one other than myself, arrived at scheduled time, nor apologize. Promotes oftentimes form within, leaving those outside of the company little hope to become an employee. Often the temporary positions last 2 yrs or more, then are hired by another department full time, usually taking a pay decrease.

    Interview Questions

    • Wanted to know why I left a former employer and didn't stay when the company was being split into 2 companies.   1 Answer

    Interview

    Most interviews are conducted by panel and often involve a selection from pre-prepared list of questions, although some also involve some kind of performance testing as well. It's usually a lengthy process, so except for positions where they have an urgent need, don't expect quick results. Most are planned and organized through their in-house HR department.

    Interview Questions

    • I really don't recall, but it was probably something about identifying your own weaknesses.   Answer Question
