I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Kaiser Permanente (Portland, OR) in September 2014.
Initially had a phone screen after being contacted by a staffing agency. Follow up phone screen then the interview was scheduled. 3 peers/managers conducted the interview in a conference room. Each had copies of my resume and a list of standard questions. They took turns asking them.
- They asked for specific examples of my experience with technical health care projects. Also asked general questions to discern my understanding of technical issues in networks, servers, and applications. Each discussion covered other health care positions that outlined on my resume. Verified my PMP certification and experience and verified I had a working knowledge of SDLC practices. Answer Question
Staffing agency quoted a good rate I was happy with after we discussed the offering range. I did not seek the maximum allowed.

I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Kaiser Permanente (Oakland, CA) in June 2013.
Interview Process consisted of an initial submission and rough quaification overview with the recruiter. Then a 15 minute phone interview with the hiring manager where we discussed the project I would be working on. Finally an in person interview with the one hiring manager that lasted about 30 minutes, again discussing the project, more so than my qualifications.
I didnt care to negotiate at the time because I wanted a job, although I would recomend at least trying to get the recruiter to get you more. I wish i did

I applied through an employee referral. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at Kaiser Permanente (Aurora, CO) in January 2012.
The interview process consisted of about 5-7 questions that could be answered without preparation. There was nothing probing or anything requiring thoughtfulness. When I asked about the culture to the hiring Director she didn't really have an answer or else didn't know what the culture is. I had the same experience when asking about the vision of the group. This should have been a warning, but I accepted the position anyway and was bored out of my mind and only stayed about 1 year.
I was able to negotiate a little on salary, but not on vacation.

The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Kaiser Permanente (Oakland, CA) in December 2008.
The hiring manager called in 15 candidates and conducted a group panel interview with all 15 candidates at the same time. They decided who would move to the next round and selected 3 candidates. Everyone else was told to go home. The three candidates were given in-person interviews. In my opinion, the 3 weakest candidates, who showed no originality of thought, were selected to go through.
