Application

I applied online – interviewed at Kaiser Permanente.

Interview

The interview was a very brief phone interview that lasted about 5-10 minutes. It was pretty casual and asked the generic interview questions, such as about projects I've worked on and what I want to do in the future. After the interview, they emailed me back a couple days later with an offer, but I had to decline for other reasons.

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Kaiser Permanente.

    Interview

    Interview process took one phone call. Employer asked me typical questions (tell me about yourself, why do you want to work for KP). SInce it was an intern position, I don't think it was as high stakes. Relaxed interview process.

    When hired, they told me right at the end.

    Application

    I applied through college or university – interviewed at Kaiser Permanente.

    Interview

    Went though an organization through school. I spoke with two employees in the department and they only asked behavioral questions. The interview took about 30 or 45 minutes. Once I spoke with them, I heard back a few weeks later. Hiring took a few weeks because I had to get drug tested, a physical, and return paperwork in person.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at Kaiser Permanente.

    Interview

    I applied for the position online and after about a week I got a call from the HR individual. She left me a message, and I called her back. We set up an in-person interview time for later that week. I arrived at the interview 15 mins early and was taken in ten minutes before the interview. They asked me question about why I wanted to intern at Kaiser, what I knew about the trends in healthcare and what I could contribute to their company. I got a call back within 3 days with the internship offer.

    Interview Questions

    • They asked a lot of behavioral questions that were unexpected. Like how would you handle a supervisor who isn't treating you well.   Answer Question

    Interview

    Was called for a pre-screening "interview," which was very informal, asking about my interests.

    It was followed by the actual interview, which was a panel of 3 people. They were interested in why I wanted the job, previous leadership experience, and my coursework. Last about an hour

    Interview Questions

    Interview

    Interviewed with two people. Manager and associate. Described job and some questions. Took 1 hour. And went very in depth about making it seem like job is super hard and actually said "we try to break our interns" after that I was done. No thank you
