Anonymous Interview Candidate
I applied online. The process took 5 months. I interviewed at Kaiser Permanente
5 month's until selected for interview. Interview was 15 minutes long. 6 hours later not selected for job position . The reason, because I did not have prior experience working in a hospital setting. If they had looked at my application, They would of seen this in my job descriptions. A total waste of time and effort.

I interviewed at Kaiser Permanente (Oakland, CA)
Very straight forward. Wanting to know how you deal with difficult personalities and patients. Usually if you get to the interview stage you already have the job they just want to make sure you will speak to patient safety, evidence based practice and excellent quality of car.

It’s come to my attention that Kaiser in Moreno Valley and Riverside (both under same management Linda and Tara), are purposely denying applications from Hispanic Social Work applicants. I have many friends who work at both locations and they are in need of social workers yet several applicants have come forward reporting they have been declined. All applicants met and even surpassed the job requirements yet they are denied. They have only been hiring applicants of Caucasian decent.

Anonymous Interview Candidate in Denver, CO
I applied online. I interviewed at Kaiser Permanente (Denver, CO)
In person interview with a nurse manager, audiology supervisor, and some staff audiologists. I was asked standard interview questions along with technical audiology questions. Many questions seemed to be judging the protocols of my previous workplace, rather than my skill set. The supervisor made it clear that she did not have very much respect for my previous workplace, and that she did not think highly of audiologists outside of her hospital. Due to this clearly toxic environment and management style I declined the job when offered.

They perform a panel interview with about 3-6 other supervisors. The questions are about day to day things, such as how to deal with heavy amount of work and work place conflicts. My only complaint is that they don’t really notify you when they don’t want to move forward.

I interviewed at Kaiser Permanente (San Francisco, CA)
Did a presentation in front of manager and director. They asked a few questions about presentation style and dealing with different personalities. The presentation that I did was an old one that I had used at my old job, they don't care what you're presenting on they just wanted to see you present.

Anonymous Interview Candidate in San Rafael, CA
I interviewed at Kaiser Permanente (San Rafael, CA)
I received an email inviting me to complete a virtual interview. It was an automated interview where the questions were read to me by a computer generated voice and my answers were recorded via video. I did not hear back about the job from the organization. Not even a generic email saying that I was no longer being considered. I had to regularly check the online portal, where it eventually was updated to note the position had been filled, but only after 2 months of it saying my application was still under consideration. The process was very impersonal.

Very long and tedious. Too many interviewers whose feedback is not even valid. The interview is somewhat relevant to the position you are applying for but mostly it is very general and sometimes during the process you feel that
