No Offer – Interviewed in Rockville, MD Apr 2012 – Reviewed Apr 16, 2013
Interview Details – Went through several one-on-one and group panel interviews and met with day-to-day management personal which was last step in the process. They never got back to me to continue the process, or tell me I wasn't selected. I just dropped and never received confirmation on my status, or if they hired someone else.

Interview Details –
Found the opening through their jobs website. In person interview with a panel.
Overall, interview was pleasant and straightforward. Most of the questions revolved around team building, handling difficult situations and people. Was also asked about achievements with current employer and projects/products that I consider a success. Was also asked why those projects were my favs, my contribution to the projects.

Interview Details – Annoying. First, you have to talk to the recruiter to reiterate all the things which you already have spent hours cutting and pasting into your application online. Then, if everything checks out, you can interview with the department manager. The manager I interviewed with was EXCELLENT! But then, it goes back to HR.
Interview Question – Where do you see yourself ultimately. View Answer
Negotiation Details – Fine. But they rescinded my offer because I did not complete my drug test within 48 from the EXACT MINUTE that I accepted the provisional offer. I just couldn't clear my schedule. I tried to negotiate with them for more time but they said that they have a strict policy. This is a ridiculous way to treat a professional with 2 kids, other jobs and ailing parents. In fact, Kaiser actually contacted ME to apply for the position.. I had to jump through so many hoops and take time away from children and other jobs in order to jump through the hoops and then when I couldn't clear my schedule when they demanded that I do (without warning, BTW), they rescinded my offer. I am completely disgusted. I understand that a user may need that time to detox but I am clearly NOT a user. Test my hair and you can see. Do the drug test when you do pre employment physical. Yes, the less than 1% of people who have completed such a rigorous and time consuming interview process (including having to do an oral professional presentation to the hiring manager) may be able to detox prior to a pre employment drug screen BUT those who just want and job and would be great employees are being negatively affected by this. Shame on Kaiser Anaheim!!!

Accepted Offer – Interviewed in San Francisco, CA – Reviewed Mar 17, 2013
Interview Details – I had two interviews one phone interview and one in person interview with the supply chain director. The phone screen was very basic: tell me about yourself, why supply chain management, etc. Basically turned into a casual conversation. I was invited to go into the office and met the director of supply chain operations. He introduced me to some of the team members and gave me a tour of the workplace. No technical questions.

No Offer – Interviewed in Oakland, CA Feb 2013 – Reviewed Mar 8, 2013
Interview Details – The interviewer said, "I know I'm not supposed to ask, but...'ARE YOU MARRIED AND DO YOU HAVE CHILDREN?" Egad, EEO law has been clear for many years on the inappropriateness of these questions. I was extremely surprised and disappointed that the largest healthcare company in the US would so blatantly violate employment law. What else are they doing that's not right?
