    Interview

    xpect very functional questions during a screening interview. Often, interviewers at this stage are recruiters or hiring managers, not the manager for this position. Their goal is to create a shortlist of appropriate candidates, who will then continue on to the next interview.

    Interviewers are looking to see if you have the necessary skills for the position and if your salary expectations match the budget allocated for the role. Typical questions during a screening interview include being asked to tell them about myself.

    Interview

    The interview process was very simple. I met with two different interviewers for 30 minutes each and answered a series of basic questions about my experiences and qualifications. They asked a lot of about how I handle certain situations, to explain ways in which I have dealt with difficult co-workers or teammates, and other similar situation questions. The whole interview was very casual and both interviewers were extremely personable and took a genuine interest in me as a candidate.

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Cerner (Malvern, PA) in November 2015.

    Interview

    Very comfortable and warm environment in comparison to other interviews I have had, but perhaps it was because it was a Friday interview. There were two interviews, back-to-back, in a suggested hour time slot, given by two members of the company. The man and woman that walked through the door for each interview was as excited as they were business casual. Well it's technically "jeans casual" as they call it at Cerner. Every question given felt genuine, but challenging. I did feel like my performance was at its strongest when the interviewers would engage in the dialogue and add their own pieces of information to the conversation. When offered to ask a question, I inquired about the feeling of work-balance felt by each interviewer. Both invested in personal stories involving their early adulthood, their loved ones, and families now. Overall, it was an eye-opening experience that led to an email with an offer only three days after, claiming the offer would have been announced sooner if it had not been for an early dismissal for Thanksgiving Holiday. leaving no employees at their desks over the weekend.
