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!
