    Psychologist Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Los Angeles, CA
    Accepted Offer
    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at Kaiser Permanente (Los Angeles, CA) in November 2013.

    Interview

    Years ago I interviewed for a psychologist position. It was worse then the horrible oral exam I went through to get my psychology license. Fortunately, oral licensing exams are gone, and horrible job interviews with Kaiser Permanente are very rare. (I passed the licensing exam because I showed great restraint. Same with the job interview.)

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 6 weeks. I interviewed at Kaiser Permanente in February 2015.

    Interview

    Recruiter contacted me via e-mail with links to several problem solving/multitasking/behavioral tests. Do not shrug these off. They are crucial to the interviewing process. If you don't meet a minimum score your application will not be considered for 6 additional months. They're also intense--and take a couple hours to complete--so take them seriously. You will be required to perform logic-puzzle type questions (very similar to an IQ test), perform multitasking (this one was actually extremely challenging), and some behavioral questions. About two weeks later I was contacted by a manager for a brief chat and invited to interview. Expect a panel. 5-6 people were present at mine. The majority of the interview involved behavioral-based questions. They give you a particular scenario and frame the questions like, "tell us about a mistake you made at work and what did you do to resolve it?" or "tell us about someone you worked with and you witnessed them do something they shouldn't have, what happened and how did you act?" Also, expect a few technical questions related to your profession. If offered a position, you will be required to pass a background check and drug test.

    The first part of this process was an interview with two individuals, being called back for a 2nd interview with one of the individuals from the first interview and Kaine Kerkhoff, head of the unit.

    Informatics Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Silver Spring, MD
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Kaiser Permanente (Silver Spring, MD) in June 2014.

    Interview

    Applied online. Asked to come in about 2 weeks later. Hated the process though. No one talked to me they just placed me in a room to take an assessment that was very weird. It felt like the LSAT logic test, but programming-type questions. Weird and really complicated questions. After the test, someone just showed me out. They are very impersonal with their interview process; at least, that's the experience I had.

    Interview Questions

    • I didn't have a person-to-person interview, but the assessment asks math-related and programming-type questions.   Answer Question

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Kaiser Permanente (Harbor City, CA) in August 2016.

    Interview

    Received an email for the schedule of the group panel interview.
    The interview process was the most intense I've ever been into. There were 5 panels and 2 from HR and there were 10 applicants. After the group panel interview, they called us one by one and stated they'd let us know in a week about their decision. But I received a call same day that they have chosen me.
