    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Cerner in June 2016.

    Interview

    Started with a phone interview and then an online web interview with some coding questions. Web interview was relatively simple but very open ended. Be ready to explain your reasoning. A lot of this came down to justifying your choices for data types and what kind of data to store within a class. Having a good understanding of Object oriented programming and Java was a plus here.

    • Design an allergy class, sanitizing input, data types etc.   4 Answers

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took a week. I interviewed at Cerner.

    Interview

    The interview process is well organized and swift. My hiring recruiter was very helpful and responded quickly to emails. The interview questions are not out-of-this-world difficult. If you do well in school and are a competent computer scientist, you will be able to give good answers. They will look for your skills and interests so they can figure out which team at Cerner (if any) you belong to.

    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!

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Cerner (Waltham, MA).

    Interview

    Interview consisted of some HL7 questions on how to design a class to hold HL7 information. Unfortunately I was supposed to have an interview with the Manager but I was passed off instead to a an unsuspecting software engineer who didn't seem that interested in interviewing. The interview lasted about 40 minutes of me explaining my software work history which I don't think the information was successfully relayed to the people in a position to hire.
