    Consulting Analyst Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Kansas City, MO

    Positive Experience
    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.

    Academy Consultant Interview

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Cerner (Kansas City, MO).

    Interview

    The first round was a 25-minute phone interview with the HR recruiter. Pretty simple questions (Why Cerner? Why did you choose your major? Are you willing to relocate to Kansas City?) Basic stuff. About a month and a half later I was invited to interview in Kansas City. The interviewers were so nice and the interview was more of a conversation (they use the STAR format). After interviews, you hear various people talk about how great it is to work at Cerner and live in Kansas City. Despite not getting an offer, I learned a lot from this interview and it was a fun experience too!

    Interview

    Applied in January 2018. That same day I was removed from consideration when I more than met their qualifications. Really wonder what they look for/at when looking at candidates. The same thing happened when looking at applying to other careers that Cerner offers.
