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.

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Cerner in October 2015.

    Interview

    First off, I have entry-level experience only so this may not be the same for everyone. Started with a typical HR phone screening, double checking resume info and all that. Then had a remote, Skype-esque 'technical' interview with a current Software Engineer. Question was the Allergy class like everyone else has said. In my opinion, it was a very poorly worded question that gave little to no direction.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Cerner.

    Interview

    basic question and simple answers.
    Easy to get through. The hiring process was of three rounds. The first round was the aptitude test. On successful completion of this round, they called for face to face interview. It was a bit difficult to tackle this round. They expect each and everything in depth. Overall the interview was good.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Cerner in October 2016.

    Interview

    The interview process was fairly straight forward. I spoke with a recruiter at my university, and the next day I had a online interview using Hirevue. In this interview I was asked a few situational questions (How would I go about fixing code that was reported as not working right by a client, etc.) and a couple technical questions (Design a class, etc.) After this interview I was told I would hear back in about a week and it was exactly a week when they contacted me and wanting me to come onsite for Experience Cerner Day.

    At ECD there were two hour long interviews. Much of the same situation and technical type questions. However, the technical questions were a tad bit more difficult to me than the ones asked during the initial interview.

    Overall, I really enjoyed the experience I gained going through ECD and I give Cerner's interview process two thumbs up.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Cerner (Kansas City, MO) in April 2016.

    Interview

    Was reached by a recruiter over the phone, who went through some generic details and then asked some OOP questions like Class Design and Data Types. Later, She arranged a Technical Interview Session (HireVue). Decent difficulty level, however, was caught off guard with questions from Data Structures and Algorithm.

    Conclusion, did not get past the second round.
    Good Luck to Others!
