    Interview

    I applied online and received a phone call from HR for an invitation to a telephone interview. The telephone interview was pretty straight forward, nothing tricky or unexpected. I was then informed that if chosen to move forward, I would receive an email invitation to a group interview. I received the invitation and had to respond right away. The group interview was well organized, nothing tricky.

    Interview

    Multiple rounds of phone interviews. Followed by in person interviews. Most of interview questions were basic and not very technical. Recruiting process was a bit disorganized. Overall I would expect this process to take a while.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 6 daysinterviewed at Kaiser Permanente in November 2014.

    Interview

    I went through 2 interviews: 1) with account manager at staffing firm. 2) with hiring manager and team at Kaiser. The team seemed uninterested from the beginning. In hindsight it is clear to me that I was a placeholder interview. I found out they already had candidates they offered the position to.

    Interview Questions

    • The hiring manager was back/forth with interview questions and actually nearly shouted a comment to me. I was very taken back by the gesture and emotions. It was very unexpected.   1 Answer

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Kaiser Permanente.

    Interview

    Very stressful, when you are already worried or nervous, it would be helpful to feel welcomed. Not a very good start. Hope that things will change so they can value good candidates. Never judge a book by the cover.
