    Interview

    Hiring process is a pain if you are an external applicant, it takes at least 3 weeks for your background check to go through, plus the time it takes for all the paper work to go though, it can take anywhere between one month to almost two from the time you get the offer until you get hired.

    Interview Questions

    • One of the most interesting questions I got asked for my interview was this : If you had the person that loved you the most and that hated you the most in this room, what would they say about you?

    Administrative Coordinator Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Seattle, WA
    No Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Kaiser Permanente (Seattle, WA) in February 2017.

    Interview

    There was a panel that interviewed me and it was a behavioral interview, a lot of 'give me an example of a time when you did this or that". They all took turns asking questions. At the end they indicated they would contact me further if they decided do a 3rd interview, or just contact me in general to let me know, but I never heard back from them. I even emailed after a week went by to ask. I was ok with not moving further along in the process, but I think it was dis-respectful to not at least respond to my email letting me know they hadn't chosen me to go further.

    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.)

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ months. I interviewed at Kaiser Permanente (Oakland, CA) in November 2016.

    Interview

    The interview process consisted of three parts. First was the initial interview with the recruiting officer. It was comprised of interview questions which are to be submitted to the supervisor of the legal department and a series of test to establish your proficiency and Word, Excel, and PowerPoint. If you pass that part your resume and application will be submitted to the supervisor in the legal department. That is when the second part I have the interview process comes in; meeting with the direct supervisor. If you are chosen beyond that interview you will then meet with whom you will be working under to see if you would fit personality wise.

    Medical Technologist Interview

    Anonymous Employee
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    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.
