    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at Kaiser Permanente (Novato, CA).

    Interview

    I was very nervous for my interview, kaiser is, of course, a dream company to work for if you are looking for good retirement benefits and job security. I wasn't coming in with a lot of experience and was concerned about how this would be perceived. The interview was similar to others I have been through, a lot of team and management and troubleshooting questions. It definitely felt like there was a specific template, but was rather routine. The nurse manager made me feel surprisingly comfortable, but I'm sure this is not always the case. My best advice would be to over prepare and know as much about the company that you can... And be able to throw that out during the interview. Good luck!

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 5 weeks. I interviewed at Kaiser Permanente (San Francisco, CA) in June 2015.

    Interview

    Went in to the office twice, met the team. It was mostly laidback for the first interview, and formal for the second. The questions the team asked were not very technical, just behavioral and really emphasizing what Kaiser has to offer and if this role still seemed like a good fit to me.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Kaiser Permanente (San Francisco, CA) in April 2015.

    Interview

    Began with an informal phone all with a consultant, then had a case interview, and after that went well, a behavioral interview, each with two consultants. The entire process took about a month, and I ended up with an offer to intern for a couple months before the possibility of continuing full-time. I had connections to another employee at Kaiser, which I believe really helped.
