    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.

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Cerner (Kansas City, MO) in July 2017.

    Second round was on hirevue where the Allergy class question was asked. A lot of behavioral and design level questions on internships and work experience.

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Cerner (Saint Paul, MN) in January 2016.

    Interview

    My interview process was fairly quick. Given that I had another job waiting for me, Cerner expedited the interview process. It consisted of the initial phone interview, then I had a video conference interview where I could present a topic of my choice (to demonstrate my presentation skills). I was given the offer a week later.
