    Difficult Interview

    Application

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

    Interview

    Applied on 8/22 and immediately received a non-technical phone call with HR. Was then invited to take a Coding Challenge which involved 3 questions (any language):

    1) Given an array of n (between 10 to 20) integers 1 through 9, return the index of the lowest unique integer (i.e. [1, 8, 2, 5, 2, 1, 6, 9, 7, 8] -> returns index 3 from value 5)

    2) Given a string with a mix of comma separated words and numbers, print out two strings which contain only words in one and numbers in the other separated by commas.

    3) Given numbers 1 through 52, take 5 unique numbers and determine if the number 42 can be made using any combination of addition (+), subtraction (-), multiplication (*), and division (/) on those 5 numbers.

    The interview experience was wonderful. The interviewers were very friendly, they made me feel comfortable and gave good insights on my solutions.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. I interviewed at Cerner (Kansas City, MO) in March 2017.

    Interview

    I applied through referral and the process took about 3 months. The HR process was too slow that you need to do a regular follow up to get the things done. They were very unclear about which position they are interviewing me. I was asked to apply for multiple job ID's by HR and will get a rejection mail. HR gives an explanation saying that I have to apply for a different job ID and need to re start my interview process.

    Finally after 3 months, the offer letter was released offering a very low pay. This is not actually matching the average salary range.

    Interview Questions

    • 1st round - HR call with some behavioral questions and my interest towards the position.
      2nd round - Online Coding challenge which I need to record and send them for evaluation.

      Questions:
      Least common sub sequence length.
      convert a number to binary format.
      Find an Armstrong value.

      3rd round
      Its an onsite interview. Two face to face interviews each scheduled for an hour each. General behavioral questions and basic questions on data structures. I was asked to design a class with specific requirements (Allergy and Prescription). The same glass door question on race condition was asked. Went through my resume and they learnt about my projects.   3 Answers

    Reasons for Declining

    The pay scale was too low and I felt that they do not respect freshers. They just played around with my application for 3 months with out even notifying me on what's happening with my application.
