Systems Engineer Interview

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.

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

    Interview

    It was pleasant. Half behavioural half technical. Different definition of systems engineering than what I am used to. They are looking for network engineers and harder technical skills than what I have been trained with.

    It was a very quick interview process. Was contacted by a recruiter via email. Setup an hour long phone screening. Explained my background and recruiter recommended roles based on my experience and skill set. Interview was a week later. The interview process was unique as it was 3 interviews back-to-back each lasting an hour. Each interview was for the same position title, though on different teams. Process went very smoothly and I heard back from my recruiter in just under a week with the offer.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Cerner (Kansas City, MO) in September 2016.

    Interview

    The interview with Cerner was super cool.

    I applied for multiple jobs through LinkedIn and I was contacted by a recruiter and we discussed regarding the different opportunities within the organization and she asked by my past experience. At the end of the call she was impressed and told that I should fly to Kansas for a face to face interview for three job opportunities.

    My flights tickets were booked by the company and their treatment was top level. I was provided with a limo service from airport to Sheraton. On the day of interview, I was again picked up by the limo and was dropped at their north campus.

    I had three consecutive interviews with a span of one hour each. Interviews are not too technical and they examine you to get an idea about your Linux standards and experience. The session is also included with some behavioral questions.

    At the end of interview, I was given 50-dollar gift card and was dropped at Kansas airport again by Limo

    The total experience was really awesome and I am waiting for the results

    Fingers Crossed!!!

    Update: after a week from the interview, I received the offer
