Application Details

I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Kaiser Permanente in June 2013.

Interview Details

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.

    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 1+ weekinterviewed at Kaiser Permanente in January 2012.

    Interview Details

    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.

    Negotiation Details
    I was able to negotiate a little on salary, but not on vacation.

    The process took a dayinterviewed at Kaiser Permanente in December 2008.

    Interview Details

    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.
