    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...

    Executive Assistant Interview

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 6 weeksinterviewed at Kaiser Permanente in February 2015.

    Interview Details

    This was a phone interview; they emailed first requesting time and day. I was unprepared for this interview thinking I could do it without preparation so I learned a lesson from this interview which cost me the job or second, face to face interview. Overall these interviews at this company are looking for one or two things and if you do not seem to have this one thing (even though you have the 50 other things and 15 years experience) they start getting negative. Had two interviews with this company and both were negative.

    Interview Questions
    • Why do you want to work here; describe yourself, describe your experience. Did you have experience scheduling calendars, working for one person specifically? Describe conflict with coworker and how you handled it. Describe how you handled a stressful situation   Answer Question

    You take a typing speed accuracy test and audio data entry test.
    If you fail you can retake it again in 3 weeks.
    I was hired in 2002 so I'm sure the testing is much different now

    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3+ monthsinterviewed at Kaiser Permanente.

    Interview Details

    Hire process took a very long time, several month to be exact. HR was very thorough on background screening, and initial phone interview included a skills test. After which I was invited to a 1:1 interview with the hiring manager. A follow up interview was set up with a panel of leads from the department. Both Interviews itself was conversational, but had many real life scenarios and I was expected to describe my experience or how I would handle a situation.

    Consultant - Market Strategy Interview

    Anonymous Employee
    Anonymous Employee
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at Kaiser Permanente in January 2015.

    Interview Details

    Applied online. HR person responded back with a questionnaire to fill out stating salary requirements and to respond to a few questions. Got a response back that the max salary for this was well below my current salary. I decided to proceed anyway. Did a 1 on 1 with a sr mgr (1h). They are quick to schedule you in but did not tell me it was 1h long. Luckily I could push back my other meeting. But the call was a very structured interview, not a lot of time to answer questions about the organization on their part though. Easy case study. Second round included coming into their office. I met with the same senior mgr again for an hour. Lot of open-ended questions, no structure to the interview this time. Where do you see yourself in 5 years, etc. Questions seem to come on the fly. Again, not a lot of time to answer questions so I can understand their organization. In the end she cut it short, as it was probably evident that this was my practice interview as I was gearing up for other interviews not related to health care. They want someone dedicated to health care market strategy (not too many job openings in this realm so if this is truly what you want, then make sure you do your research around this). I think a market strategist coming from a CPG, CE or any other industry could be a good fit to this role, just have to be be nimble enough to respond to the current regulatory issues around healthcare but all industries will have constraints.
