    Interview

    After reaching out to HR through the website, I was quickly emailed by a physician recruiter. Next steps included a phone interview with HR. She sent out my CV/cover letter to the sites I was interested in. Also required 3 letters of recommendation. I was then contacted by interested sites for a phone interview and then on-site interview. On-site interview included tour and physician interviews.

    Physician Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in San Francisco, CA
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Kaiser Permanente (San Francisco, CA) in April 2016.

    Interview

    I was asked by the physician over phone to come and interview with them. Following the interview, there was no follow up or any response to the email or phone. Left messages for the recruiter and the physician with no response. This is unprofessional.

    For another interview at Kaiser again, the physician asked if I wanted to join them after full panel interview. There was no meeting with HR on benefits. How could anyone accept offer without knowing? When I did ask questions about benefits and had them answered and then expressed interest in joining, the interviewing physician said that they offered the position to another doctor!!!

    Declined Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Kaiser Permanente (Atlanta, GA) in April 2015.

    Interview

    initial exchange "tell us about yourself" and why you are interested in the job. Then given a mission statement about nursing in Kaiser. Asked "what does this mean to you?" Then there is a behavioral portion which examines specific aspects which I may or may not remember well.

    Interview Questions

    • Questions like "tell us about a time you made a mistake and how did you handle it?" Clinical knowledge" " you are about to administer a drug to pt so and so. What steps do you take?", " you are tasked with a project and not enough time to compete it on time. What do you do?",   1 Answer

    Reasons for Declining

    i got a better offer. I did not like the office environment. The space was in a cramped closet (literally) with no windows. Question the value of the employee to the organization.

    Application

    I applied through other source. I interviewed at Kaiser Permanente.

    Negotiation

    No negotiation: take it or leave it. Must sign all documents, or won't be hired, (including binding mandatory arbitration).

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Kaiser Permanente (Atlanta, GA) in May 2011.

    Interview

    Had an initial interview at both facilities with both groups and was asked a lot of behavioral questions and you also took a questionnaire to see your personality type. Interview is done in a panel or group format and everyone selects a question to ask you. You are given the questions beforehand to prepare.

    Interview Questions

    • How did you handle a difficult patient? How did you handle a difficult situation where a patient was not satisified?   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    There wasn't much of one. HR is not transparent. My salary was not accurate. If you take a position, make sure it is one that you want to do for years beacuse if another job becomes available, you will not be considered for it except for certain conditions.

    They are very courteous and always made sure that the interview process and my needs were taken care of. They even made accomadations for my overnight stay prior to the interview and gave me plenty of opportunities to ask questions, state my concerns, and even made time for me to meet other staff members and see more than one facility.
