Project Manager Interview

Project Manager
Los Angeles, CA

I applied through an employee referral and the process took 6+ weeks - interviewed at Kaiser Permanente in January 2010.

Interview Details – Was refereed by a former colleague who worked there. He helped me tweak my resume to point out the need of this employer. I can 't emphasize how important it is to modify your resume each time to point out what it is that you can provide them based on their needs and not forward a boiler plate. .He forwarded the resume to his boss. I received a call for an interview. Once I interviewed them, I submit my resume on line officially to HR.. I forwarded a thank you email after the interview which the supervisor graciously responded and said they are still in the process of making a decision. A few weeks later I received a call from HR. The HR person was not very polite. She was so rude and pushy to the point that I considered declining the offer. But my colleague reminded me that I will never see or work with that person because she is in the headquarter. And that was true. 7 years later and I am still at thee company and have never seen that person.

Interview Question – Provide an example of a project or task where you saved money for the client. provide an example and what was your role in the decision.   View Answer

Negotiation Details – They offered me a salary. I counter offered the salary plus asked a signing bonus. Both of which was accepted. However, my salary counter offer was really not that much. It was only 2-3K more per year.

Administrative Specialist III Interview

Anonymous Interview Candidate
Pasadena, CA

I applied online and the process took 2 months - interviewed at Kaiser Permanente.

Interview Details – Applied, was called in for testing, then group interview then finally 1 to 1 interview with the legal department. I made it to the final round however the job ended up being canceled. It was extremely disappointing considering all the steps that needed to be taken. I took a lot of time off to go in for everything only for the position to be canceled a few weeks later. It was very disheartening.

Senior Business Specialist Interview

Anonymous Employee
Pasadena, CA

I applied online and the process took 4 weeks - interviewed at Kaiser Permanente.

Interview Details – Interview process was initial HR contact with a list of qualifying questions to complete. Thereafter moved on to panel interview 3 weeks later. Was hired maybe 3 weeks later. Background search company is terrible and acts for the same information over and over. You will not receive a written offer until after you pass the background search, so its not official until then.

Interview Question – None. Typical interview questions. Lots of group or panel interviews. This is what lots of depts. like to do at Kaiser.   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – There was none at the time. We were in recession conditions and they didn't negotiate.

DQC Interview

Anonymous Employee
Downey, CA

I applied online and the process took 4+ weeks - interviewed at Kaiser Permanente in August 2011.

Interview Details – it's a one-on-one interview with a senior management member and your future supervisor. The interview was relaxed as they were expecting someone new to the field. As long as you are keen to learn and appears to be a team player, you are in. Just don't try to be outstanding in any area. To this company, team player is valued more than heroes.

Interview Question – how much would you like?   View Answer

Negotiation Details – better start high than low.
