    Intern Interview

    Anonymous Employee

    Application Details

    I applied online – interviewed at Kaiser Permanente.

    Interview Details

    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.

    Application Details

    I applied through a staffing agency – interviewed at Kaiser Permanente.

    Interview Details

    I went for an interview first. There are two people interview me. Each of them had an interview list. They take turn to ask me question following the lists. I'm really excited to work for Kaiser, but when I told the agency that i'm done with the interview. She told me to take the Assessment Test before the process done. Next day, she called me and said I didn't pass the assessment test that mean I didn't get the job. Working for kaiser is my dream job, but it is so hard for me to get in. Hope one day, I can get the job in Kaiser.

    Business Consultant Senior Analyst Interview

    Anonymous Employee
    Application Details

    I applied through other source. The process took 3 daysinterviewed at Kaiser Permanente in March 2015.

    Interview Details

    Submitted an application online. I was called three days later to set up a phone interview with members of the KPIT RITO team: a manager, Lead Business Consultant, and a Business Consultant. The interview was driven by the Business Consultant. The Lead Business Consultant did not talk to me at all during the call. He didn't even say hello. The manager asked one question and did not speak again until the Business Consultant turned things back to her at the very end of the conversation. I found the Business Consultant to be condescending towards me during the call.

    There was only one general question related to my background asked by the manager (Tell me about yourself and what you're looking for). I tried to bring more of my background into the conversation. However, I was immediately cut-off to be drilled about databases and how to gather/analyze data using databases by the business consultant. There was no conversation about "fresh ideas", documenting requirements, analyzing business processes, or developing business cases as described in the job posting.

    I applied for a position with KP that I was qualified for based on the required and preferred qualifications, but I was "interviewed" for a different type of role. It was not a positive experience. I verbally withdrew myself as a candidate 15 minutes into the phone interview.

    Interview Questions
    • What do you know about databases?
      Do you know what SQL is? Tell me what it is.
      Tell me in detail how would you pull data from different sources using Excel?
      What do you know about Access? How would you pull data from a database using this tool?

    There group interviews are the WORST! You have 20 nervous girls in a room with a panel of 7 supervisors. They make you get in groups of twos and give a presentation of your partners work history.

    Interview Details

    After applying for multiple jobs, I received an email to complete a questionnaire then was asked about my minimum salary to confirm because they could pay below what I listed. Then phone interview with the hiring manager and now panel interview. Odd that they don't pay for parking when you come for an interview and then have to take a writing assessment. Crazy...
