    Director Interview

    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 6+ months. I interviewed at Kaiser Permanente (Oakland, CA).

    Interview

    Very long process with a lot of hurdles to jump over. Almost overkill. A drug, personality and skills test for a non-operational role (i.e. backoffice Finance) does not apply for this role, but understand that this is a healthcare company.

    Psychology Interview

    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 5+ months. I interviewed at Kaiser Permanente (Oakland, CA) in January 2016.

    Interview

    Very slow. 3-6 weeks between interviews. Started with a phone interview out of the blue. Then contacted again 6 weeks later for initial in-person interview. Then second interview. Then it took months till I heard anything. The process was pleasant other than the awkwardness of having to wait so long.

    Financial Analyst Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Oakland, CA
    No Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Kaiser Permanente (Oakland, CA) in January 2016.

    Interview

    This was a phone interview (I was not invited back for an in-person interview).

    Scheduling the phone interview was more difficult than it should have been. The recruiter must have been extremely busy, as it took him a week to get back to me after our initial introductory emails. Once we settled on a date and time for the phone interview, I waited anxiously by the phone, but he never called. It took another two weeks for us to finally connect on the phone.

    The interview itself was fine; the questions were as one would expect, and lasted maybe half an hour.

    Interview Questions

    • Generic questions: Why are you looking to leave your current position? What type of computer programs do you currently use?   Answer Question
