Average Interview

I applied in-person. I interviewed at Kaiser Permanente (Harbor City, CA).

Average but I knew the interviewer from a prior position. I was comfortable. I had to go take a typing test too to qualify. And the ski TB test because it's a hospital

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Kaiser Permanente (Pasadena, CA) in April 2014.

    Interview

    It was a panel interview - once you passed the panel, then a one on one interview was granted. A panel interview is always a bit nervous because you have to answer to several indivudals at once.

    Interview Questions

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Kaiser Permanente (Oakland, CA) in March 2017.

    Interview

    Phone screening process was very good. In person interviews more challenging because staff are not well trained to conduct interviews. Offered little time for candidate to present and the panel talked constantly which made it difficult to find an entry point without appearing rude.

    Interview Questions

    • Not very well thought out questions. Low level administrative staff feel empowered to "screen" you without the benefit of having experience to it.   1 Answer

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at Kaiser Permanente (Pasadena, CA) in April 2019.

    Interview

    Regular, normal one on one. There is a parking lot for visitors there and you must check that you are in the correct place. Make sure to arrive 15 minutes earlier because I was almost late.

    Interview

    Most interviews are conducted by panel and often involve a selection from pre-prepared list of questions, although some also involve some kind of performance testing as well. It's usually a lengthy process, so except for positions where they have an urgent need, don't expect quick results. Most are planned and organized through their in-house HR department.

    Interview Questions

    • I really don't recall, but it was probably something about identifying your own weaknesses.   Answer Question

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at Kaiser Permanente.

    Interview

    Panel interviews are conducted. No one other than myself, arrived at scheduled time, nor apologize. Promotes oftentimes form within, leaving those outside of the company little hope to become an employee. Often the temporary positions last 2 yrs or more, then are hired by another department full time, usually taking a pay decrease.

    Interview Questions

    • Wanted to know why I left a former employer and didn't stay when the company was being split into 2 companies.   1 Answer

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Kaiser Permanente in June 2014.

    Interview

    I easily applied online. Once you get your info in the kaiser Talent network its pretty easy to apply for other jobs within the company. I then received a call to come in and interview. I was interviewed by two managers who were very polite and professional. Interview went well but I think I may have been over qualified for the position at hand. That being said I am still applying in hopes to soon become part of the Kaiser family.
