    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

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

    Interview

    The interview process consisted of two phone screens, one with a director and one with a senior manager. I was then asked to come in for a physical interview. I was asked pretty easy questions and asked to describe my background and why I wanted to work for the company. Both phone calls were very quick. I asked questions, however I don't feel my questions were answered directly. I was given more generic responses.

    Marketing Interview

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 6+ months. I interviewed at Kaiser Permanente (Oakland, CA) in July 2017.

    Interview

    I applied for a job online. 3 months later a recruiter called me and said they were interested and would coordinate over email. Three weeks later I get a call from a senior-level person in another group saying someone had passed him my resume and he wants to bring me in to discuss. Excited I said yes without thinking - bring me in for what job?! So, I go in at the appointed time and had a 1:1 meeting in a tiny room where our knees were inches from touching. He asked me generic questions, and when I pressed for more information about the specific role, the team, anything, he clammed up and suggested I hadn't known what I was applying for... which was correct! When I reminded him of how I'd come to get the meeting, thinking he'd gotten me confused with another candidate, he started nit-picking my word choice. It was totally bizarre. I left definitely NOT wanting the job, but still followed up with a nice thank you email, asking that he keep me updated, and if not for this role perhaps another one! No response. When I checked in 3 weeks later he never responded. Definitely relieved it didn't work out, but was shocked at my experience as I was pumped at the idea to work for such an awesome company!

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at Kaiser Permanente (Oakland, CA) in April 2017.

    Interview

    Interview was very straight forward and easy. Hiring process is not that exhaustive in Kaiser. They made me feel at ease. Didn't try to make nervous. Kaiser is hard to get noticed but they interview you only if they are serious about you.

    Administrative Assistant Interview

    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
