    APPOINTMENT CLERK Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in San Jose, CA
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at Kaiser Permanente (San Jose, CA) in May 2015.

    Interview

    I applied online and received an email asking me to complete two online typing tests. After a week and a half they called and we set up an interview. I interviewed with two office managers. The questions were pretty typical. Make sure you know the company and the meaning behind "Thrive". They asked some situational questions, but not many. Make sure to ask what you are interviewing for. I applied and was interviewed for what I thought was a full-time position. They had actually hired the full-time position from within and hired me for the part-time position. This should have been clearer, but I am happy with the outcome and am excited to be working with this company. Hopefully I can be transitioned into full-time!

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at Kaiser Permanente.

    Interview

    I applied online and received a call within a week. I had a phone screening with a recruiter first, then received call from a manager for an interview. I had a panel interview, set questions were asked (standard interview questions), and a lot of scenarios were given. It was a good opportunity to meet other staff and get a sense of the working culture. I was asked to provide references after the interview and reference were called within a week. There is an extensive background check after receiving and accepting a job offer. I was advised to double check my employment dates and salary, applicants will be automatically disqualified if employment dates are incorrect. Background check agency may ask for copies of W-2s. I assume they ask when they are unable to reach former employers. Overall, it was a pleasant experience and I'm excited to be joining the agency.
