    Consulting Analyst Interview

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Cerner (Kansas City, MO) in June 2016.

    Interview

    Overall a very professional process. I applied online for the position and received an email for a phone interview a few days later. The phone interview was relaxed, a sort of "get to know you" type of interview. My recruiter basically went over my resume, told me a bit about Cerner, and asked me a couple of basic questions about why I applied for the position.

    Right after my phone interview, I received an invitation to go to KC for an in person interview. I accepted and was flown down to KC on a Thursday and interviewed the following Friday. There were about 20 other candidates who were all being interviewed for the same position (there were multiple openings for the position). Cerner made the interview feel very professional and informative. I learned what the position was about, we got to ask questions about working at Cerner, and we got to speak with current consulting analysts about what they do at Cerner.

    The actual interview was 2 one-on-one sessions with current employees. The questions were basic behavioral questions, and before you go to your interviews, Cerner will tell you to answer in the STAR format. If you study over the questions on Glassdoor and do a quick google search on STAR questions, you'll get a really good idea of the type of questions to expect. At the end of the second interview, you have to give a presentation to your interviewer. The point of the presentation is to get to know your presentation style.

    They told us that we would hear back from them in 2 weeks regarding a decision, but I had another offer so I told my recruiter that. My recruiter was very accommodating and made me an offer within a week. I really enjoyed Cerner's professionalism and the nature of the job, so I accepted it.

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Cerner (Kansas City, MO) in August 2016.

    Interview

    Applied for position and was invited for a phone interview the next day. I had my phone interview with a very nice lady and it lasted about 20 minutes. She reviewed my resume and asked me simple questions about my past experiences, then went on to several behavioral questions. Three days later, I was invited to attend Experience Cerner Day- all expenses paid for. It was a wonderful experience. They flew me in, and reserved a room for me in the Presidential Hilton hotel. The next day, they gave us a one hour tour of Kansas City, then brought us to Cerner's world headquarters for our interview.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Cerner (Oklahoma City, OK) in May 2016.

    Interview

    I was not selected for an onsite interview. However, I was contacted by a recruiter and had an phone interview which I admittedly, was not prepared for. I believe being prepared for this will lead to an onsite interview. I was granted an official interview but they were set up via online. The first one, my interviewer could not use Cerner's video chat so we had a phone interview and the second went well. Answer all questions in STAR format and you'll be good to go!
