    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at Kaiser Permanente (Portland, OR) in May 2015.

    Interview

    I spoke with two women in the field and it was more informal than I was expecting. They asked questions back and forth and constantly made sure to see if I had any questions. It lasted only twenty minutes. It was very easy to talk to them as people, but it was challenging having three people on the line at one time.

    Average Interview

    Application

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

    Interview

    I applied for the position online, and a couple of days later I got an email for an assessment test to take online. The test is timed. After that, I got a call the same day for an interview that would be scheduled for a week later. The interview lasted about one hour, I had a panel of five people (some are nurses and others professions) ask me questions about past job experiences. The basic interview questions that many jobs ask. KNOW SOMETHING ABOUT THE COMPANY PAST AND PRESENT! THEY LOVE THAT. I believe that set me above all the rest of the candidates and sealed the deal for me! They also asked me clinical situational questions. Also make sure you have basic knowledge of how to do the procedures that match the job description. Make the interview not to be an “interview”. Act like you interviewing them. Be confident going in, and don’t let them know you are shaking in your boots. Just think, it’s now or never. Relax, laugh, smile, and have FUN, and act INTERESTED in the panel and the company as if you known them for years. I knew that same day I had the job but needed confirmation first. Less than a week later I got the call that I got the job, and an offer was made to me, but I needed to pass the background check first. The background check took about a week and a half to complete. The whole process took about one month. Your salary is based upon your years of experience as a LPN in general.

    There wasn't any negotiation. I was just happy to get the job! They look at my years of experience and went by their pay scale. My starting salary is not bad at all!

    Difficult Interview

    Application

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

    Interview

    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.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a weekinterviewed at Kaiser Permanente (Sacramento, CA) in April 2015.

    Interview

    Many people interviewing for one job but it was just one on one. Very easy interview was expecting more technical questions like drug names and other pharmacy related questions but was nothing like that. All the questions were just situational questions like how you react to this or that. Really nice people.
