    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at Kaiser Permanente (Oakland, CA).

    Interview

    Got called about the position, and got the job offer in 36 hours! Incredible turn around! There were two interviews, one behavioral over the phone and one panel. Most of the questions were general behavior questions. I had to do my panel over WebEx since I was still in university, but they were very understanding and cooperative.

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 6 days. I interviewed at Kaiser Permanente (Oakland, CA) in July 2016.

    Interview

    I applied for the position online. A few days later, I received an email stating they would like to schedule a phone interview. After scheduling the interview, they called me on-time the day of the meeting. We talked for about 15 minutes and the interviewer answered all of my questions. I was told if I was not going to move onto the next phase of the hiring process, I would receive notification by the end of the week. It was an average interview; short and informative.
    I have been on other interviews for different positions. All of them are about the same. Kaiser is on-time with their meetings/appointments and very professional. Listen carefully to the questions they ask, so your answer cover everything they asked. Have questions to ask them about the position! Dress in comfortable casual business attire.

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Kaiser Permanente (Oakland, CA) in April 2016.

    Interview

    Responded to a posting on Facebook by an alumnus of my school and was leaving the position. She asked for my resume and a cover letter, 2 weeks later contacted me about an on-site interview. First interviewed with the manager; very casual and friendly. Then took an assessment, ~1 hour, then had a panel interview, about 1 hour. One member on the panel in particular was very unprofessional, made a lot of unnecessary comments, and overall seemed suspicious of me, for some reason. One of my worst interview experiences ever.

    Manager Interview

    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Kaiser Permanente (Oakland, CA) in March 2016.

    Interview

    After a phone screen with the in-house recruiter, I met with the hiring manager and someone deeply familiar with the role. Within a couple of days I met with another key executive. Then a few business partners in a series of 1-on-1 interviews. The first few interviews were a mix of behavior-based and ''how would you..." questions. Later interviews were conversational, seemed more like vetting me, influencing me with their interests and helping me get a sense of key stakeholders, which was welcome and helpful.
