    APPOINTMENT CLERK Interview

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Kaiser Permanente (Fontana, CA) in March 2017.

    Interview

    I first applied in Feb didn't think too much of it. I had applied several times and had no luck. I got the phone interview in March. I passed the phone interview and was selected to go forward with a group interview. The group interview was in March 20 something. I got the phone call same day saying I got the job! I started training as of April.

    I personally had 2 different types of interviews. The first interview I had was a phone interview with someone from HR. She had asked many questions for about 30-45 mins. The questions were all different from what do you believe is good customer service to why why did you want to work for Kaiser Permanente?

    Luckily for me, I was chosen and they offered me the group interview. When I arrived at the group interview I was in a room with 35 other people. It felt extremely intimidating especially since I was in the room with 6 other supervisors. Overall it wasn't too bad just felt very intimidated. I left the job interview feeling nervous and scared but I got lucky enough to be told the same day I got the job! Once I finished all my paperwork and went for training the first day I realized out of the 35 people that were in the group interview only 4 of us were picked. Also, try to do your very best at the group interview turns out if you don't get offered this position you CANNOT apply for it again at any KP for 1 whole year and that includes the interview too. Some of the pre req they asked for was several different tests.

    Interview Questions

    • Why Kaiser? Tell me a time when you had a goal you wanted to meet what did you do to meet that goal? What would you do if you requested a weekend off and your manager decides to add you to the schedule what would you do about this situation? What is customer service to you? Who do you want to make proud? Where do you see yourself in 5 years?   Answer Question

    Clinical Assistant Interview

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

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Kaiser Permanente (Silver Spring, MD) in March 2017.

    Interview

    Uncertain of the hiring process. I've been called or e-mailed by them 4 times within the last year about positions I've applied for. Person interviewing me laughed multiple times as if I was telling a joke except I wasn't and was speaking openly and honestly about my experiences and where I am now. I used to think KP was the promise land after so many positive reviews from not only employees but patients within their system. I felt that my interviewer was for lack of better wording unprofessional. She said she would call my most recent supervisor and call me back and never did.

    Interview Questions

    • Basic questions. You understand this isn't full time? You undetstand where the location is in comparison to where you live? Talk about your most recent position and past positions and why you aren't with them any more. Discuss any gaps in employment   1 Answer

    Administrative Assistant Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Oakland, CA

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Kaiser Permanente (Oakland, CA) in March 2017.

    Interview

    Phone screening process was very good. In person interviews more challenging because staff are not well trained to conduct interviews. Offered little time for candidate to present and the panel talked constantly which made it difficult to find an entry point without appearing rude.

    Interview Questions

    • Not very well thought out questions. Low level administrative staff feel empowered to "screen" you without the benefit of having experience to it.   1 Answer
