    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Kaiser Permanente (Los Angeles, CA).

    Interview

    Got a call from Kaiser to fill out a questionnaire. The questionnaire was emailed to me and I sent it back same day. Was told I'd hear back within 10 days for an interview. I heard back 1.5 months later requesting an interview. I had forgotten I even applied. I had already accepted a job with another very well known hospital making much more money than Kaiser would ever pay me. I kindly told them to go away. They really need be much faster with recruiting.

    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took a week. I interviewed at Kaiser Permanente (Los Angeles, CA) in March 2016.

    Interview

    I have always wanted to work for Kaiser. I finally was called to interview. I was interviewed by six people. They made me feel extremely uncomfortable. They were not welcoming at all. I have been a nurse in the operating room for eighteen years and have specialized in open heart surgery. They never even asked me a question about surgery. After that interview, I realized that Kaiser isn't somewhere I want to work.

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a staffing agency. I interviewed at Kaiser Permanente (Los Angeles, CA) in February 2016.

    Interview

    I responded to an email and submitted my resume and was called right away by the agency and was told about the position available with Kaiser Permanente and that I would be called shortly for a phone interview. It was relatively quick. They asked about my previous positions, what I did there and for how long and what were my reasons for leaving. They were more interested in the kind of personality I had to see if I would be a good match for the company. As soon I hung up I was called by the temp agency and was told the job was mine.

    Interview Questions

    • I disclosed to the person interviewing me who would later be my supervisor that I left one position because I did not like the work environment. He asked me to elaborate on that and describe the specific work environment that I did not like and why I felt that way.   1 Answer
