    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Kaiser Permanente (Portland, OR) in February 2017.

    Interview

    I got a call from the hiring manager about a week after applying. He wanted to schedue an in-person interview for the next day (no screening). It was a panel interview with the hiring manager and several other team-adjacent personnel-- introductions and the usual interview questions.

    I had the general background to do the job, but I think it was clear to everyone that I may not be a good cultural fit. At the end of the interview they said they had "no timeline" for next steps. Five weeks later I received a canned notice that someone else had been selected for the job.

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Kaiser Permanente (Portland, OR) in February 2017.

    Interview

    Applied online, received an email back about a week later asking me to fill out a personality questionnaire, wrote about 2 full pages in response and sent it in. A few days later I was contacted by the underwriting department to set up an interview. I had 3 interviews, mostly personality and experience questions as they did not expect me to know much about underwriting. Received an offer but decided to go in another direction. Positive experience overall, very nice and helpful and understanding people.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Kaiser Permanente (Portland, OR) in August 2016.

    Interview

    Panel interview with 3 nurse's asking the questions. I felt very comfortable. They each took turns asking me questions relating to how I handle a variety of situations and then asked me in the end if I had any questions... I thought up, rather quickly, 3 good questions to ask them. I was told they had a few more to interview so I would know by next Tuesday... That's a week from today... I will check back when I hear something... I hope to hear good news!!!

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Kaiser Permanente (Portland, OR) in May 2016.

    First they start with a phone interview, then if they like you, they'll call you to schedule an in person interview. At the in person interview it could be panel, one on one, or a group interview--it's based on the position and dept you'd be working with. A lot of behavioral questions are asked.
