Solutions Architect Interview

Anonymous Employee in Kansas City, MO
Accepted Offer
Negative Experience
Easy Interview

Application

I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at Cerner (Kansas City, MO).

Interview

Good interview. Telephone interview and then in person interview at the corporate headquarters. Most of the day was about the culture. However, I was low balled with a masters degree. I rescinded my offer due to finding out a classmate with a much lower GPA was offered more money.

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at Cerner (North Kansas City, MO) in June 2014.

    Interview

    I was contacted by a senior recruiter for the Solution Architect position after I had previously applied for a position with Cerner. After being contacted by this recruiter, I went through the first-level application on the Cerner website. I was then provided a phone interview within 5 business days with the senior recruiter to discuss the basics of the job. After completion of the initial phone interview, I received an e-mail about 3 business days after the phone interview from another member of the HR team at Cerner to schedule my on-site interview. I was scheduled to meet with three individuals (2 Directors and 1 Manger) and was told the process would take about 2 hours and 15 minutes.

    The first person I met with shared the basics regarding travel, expected knowledge level, desired knowledge/skills/abilities, and some info about the team I will be working with. She also shared her experience of "a day in the life" of a Solution Architect and her general experience at Cerner.

    The second person I met with shared a few more technical aspects of the position and he also shared his experience of "a day in the life" of a Solution Architect and his general experience at Cerner.

    The third person was more cut and dry, sticking primarily to interview questions, etc. She did, however, provide her experience of "a day in the life" of Solution Architect and her general experience at Cerner.

    ALL three of these individuals had several behavioral or situational questions which seemed like standard interview questions to me.
