I applied in-person and the process took 7 weeks - interviewed at Kaiser Permanente in January 2014.

Interview Details – It was only a one on one interview with the manager of the group. The interview lasted maybe a few minutes, I was allowed to come back in the following week to be briefed on compliance and privacy.

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

Interview Details – 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.

Interview Question – Nothing too difficult.   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – Internship so none

I applied online and the process took 3 weeks - interviewed at Kaiser Permanente.

Interview Details – 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 Question – 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
