    Average Interview

    Application

    The process took 6+ weeks. I interviewed at Kaiser Permanente.

    Interview

    Had two phone calls from the manager, took an online assessment and went in for an on-site a week later. It was a panel interview and everyone was friendly. Manager said I should hear back in a week. Over 4 weeks, I sent two emails to check in. Never heard back and got a generic automated email saying the position was cancelled.

    I spent hours for those interviews and they couldn’t spend a minute to contact me directly to let me know the job was cancelled.

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Kaiser Permanente in January 2017.

    Interview

    It was a group interview. There were 7 other people interviewing for a job. We had to sit in alphabet order. There was four interviewers. We went around the whole table and introduce ourselves. Then we had to pair up and ask or partner what customer service skills/jobs have they had, and then present them to the room. We then had two out three questions that were written on the board out loud one by one. Why do we want to work at a call center? How do we handle stress? Lastly we were asked four questions by the interviewers one by one. One question at a time. We were all asked the same questions. Why should we hire?

    I applied online. I interviewed at Kaiser Permanente (Clackamas, OR) in January 2017.

    Interview

    I applied in October for the new grad program but didn't hear back till the 2nd week of December. I got an email saying that I was selected for a phone interview. Phone interview lasted for about 15 minutes (4 questions) and I got a call back the next day that I was going in for the second round which was the panel interview (lasted about 45 minutes). Panel interview was with 9 nurse managers from the Medical-Surgical team. The nurse managers were so awesome and nice about the entire process. I've never felt such a welcoming feeling in a nursing interview (and this was with 9 people!!!!!). After my panel interview, I got a call and an email that I got the job the next day.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Kaiser Permanente (Pasadena, CA) in January 2017.

    Interview

    Applied for the job on January 9, 2017 and received an email from the hiring manager on January 11th for a 60-minute phone interview. I was offered several time slots, but I chose the last time/date to get a better feel of what my competition was like. The interview lasted about 1 1/2 hours and the questions were pretty straightforward. The hiring manager was pretty friendly, and she said she would be in contact with me to schedule a panel interview within the week. I will update this thread if I hear back from them. I also mentioned that I had one other SOLID offer on the table.
