    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Cerner (Lowell, MA) in October 2017.

    Interview

    I applied online to an opening, and was scheduled for 2 hours of face to face meetings with people. I spent perhaps 35 minutes with two people and the technical interviewer never showed.

    The interview process felt rushed, and no real technical questions were asked of me.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at Cerner (Kansas City, MO).

    Interview

    I was contacted by a Cerner recruiter through linkdIn. I filled out the application per the recruiters request and I was contact via email soon after. I had a preliminary interview with the recruiter so they could get a feel for my interests, resume read, and behavioral questions. After that, I was informed that I'd interview with a Systems Engineer for a behavioral/technical video interview. Once I passed that, I was told I would be moved on to the final stage which is a 2 day trip to the HQ in KC. It consisted of a tour the first day and then two back to back interviews the second day. Every Cerner employee I came in contact with was very friendly, open, and most importantly professional.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Cerner (Kansas City, MO) in April 2017.

    Interview

    Laid Back> I expected technical questions but they were more behavioral than technical. I guess because of the type of questions asked I was focusing more n responding to them with personal examples than with work experience examples. That might have been why i was not offered the job. I am not sure.
