    Administrative Specialist Interview

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Kaiser Permanente.

    Interview Details

    I applied on-line - very easy process. After about 7-10 days I received phone call from human resources telling me that they would like me to come in for a group interview. I then received a detailed e-mail with instructions and directions for group interview, including the expected attire. This was my first group interview - it was strange at first but I soon felt comfortable. Everyone I dealt with from the security to the human resources personnel to the managers were extremely nice and very proffessional. They made you feel at ease, we were in a large meeting room, there were three Kaiser staff members and about ten interviewees. They set us into groups to get to know each other so we could introduce each other, then they gave us questions regarding previous work experience, stressful situations and the like.

    Senior Director Interview

    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter – interviewed at Kaiser Permanente in July 2014.

    Interview Details

    HR couldn't get the interviews scheduled and kept cancelling. Finally schedule everyone with 6 hours notice. After the interview, no follow-up. A simple email saying thanks would have been nice. I followed up with multiple emails. I think larger company's forget that potential employees also are performing an interview.

    Interview Questions
    • None. The interviewers really didn't interview for subject matter experience.   Answer Question

    Application Details

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

    Interview Details

    1-hour phone interview and then an invitation to an all-day interview in-person. 1) I met with the Director, 2) had several individual interviews with research scientists, 3) was taken out to lunch; 4) gave a 1-hour research presentation; 5) followed by more individual interviews with research scientists.

    Interview Questions
    • The interview was so long along that I can't recall the exact questions that were asked...only the context. I was asked technical questions about my research during my presentation. I was challenged on my methodology such as study design (recruitmemnt, data collection) and implications of findings. The grilling was similar to what you would expect from a journal reviewer.   Answer Question
