    APPOINTMENT CLERK Interview

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed 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!

    Staff RN Interview

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at Kaiser Permanente (Novato, CA).

    Interview

    I was very nervous for my interview, kaiser is, of course, a dream company to work for if you are looking for good retirement benefits and job security. I wasn't coming in with a lot of experience and was concerned about how this would be perceived. The interview was similar to others I have been through, a lot of team and management and troubleshooting questions. It definitely felt like there was a specific template, but was rather routine. The nurse manager made me feel surprisingly comfortable, but I'm sure this is not always the case. My best advice would be to over prepare and know as much about the company that you can... And be able to throw that out during the interview. Good luck!

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. I interviewed at Kaiser Permanente.

    Interview

    Hard to get to the interview. I knew someone via a recommendation, but before an interview process occurs, one must pass the personality test. The personality test is by far one of the most pre-hiring tests that I have encountered. I am unsure whether or not I had to take one when I worked as a traveler with another KP, but it was stressful given that I really wanted the job.

    Interview Questions

    • No specific interview questions, it was more so experience and what would you do. I will say be able to recall a time that you made a mistake and had to own up to it by having to notify the physician and charge nurse etc.   Answer Question
