    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Cerner (Kansas City, MO) in November 2019.

    Interview

    I applied through university job portal and got a HireVue video interview the next day. Then a few days after completing the HireVue, the recruiter scheduled me for a two 1-hour interviews back to back with 2 different engineers. I had a choice to go on-site (paid by Cerner) or do a remote interview. I chose remote because I live in the west coast and going on-site would delay the process by a few weeks.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    The process took a week. I interviewed at Cerner (New York, NY).

    Interview

    I was scheduled to have an interview on a Wednesday morning. Five minutes before the interview, I got a rescheduling notice to the next day, at a time I wasn't available for. I requested to move it later in the day, but it ended up getting rescheduled to Monday...shortly after, she came back and pushed it to Tuesday at 10am.

    Come Tuesday, 5 minutes before the interview, I received an email stating that I was no longer under consideration for this position.

    This experience left me with a bad taste in my mouth, where the recruiter showed a a lack of consideration and empathy for the candidate and their time.
