    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Kaiser Permanente (Fontana, CA) in December 2015.

    Interview

    Went through the first interview by phone, the next day I received a call from the office Director to schedule an in-person interview. 5 days later, I was in room with director and administrator. Very relaxed atmosphere, questions were asked from a bullet list and they wrote down my answers word for word. Not as bad as I would have imagined.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at Kaiser Permanente (Clackamas, OR) in December 2015.

    Interview

    I submitted my application online and did not get a confirmation email back. I attempted to call HR to follow up and was told that I wasn't permitted to "cold call" unless I had a contact name. Two silent weeks went by and I was surprised, yet excited when I received a phone call to set up an interview. I was told it would be a panel interview made up of three nurse managers asking interpersonal type of questions. The interview was without a doubt difficult. Four nurse managers were present and I was told they perform behavioral based interviews. They handed me the outline of the interview so I could follow along. There were several questions with multiple parts, I felt nervous but confident with my answers. Toward the end of the interview they gave me a two part case study with a handful of written questions to be answered as well as verbal questions from the panel on what my nursing judgement would include. After the interview, I received a tour of the unit. I followed up with thank you email, but recieved a rejection phone call one week later.

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Kaiser Permanente in January 2016.

    Interview

    No organization. A total of two interviewers and four candidates. The last candidates to answer would repeat a lot of what the previous ones said. Lots of bouncing around, bouncing off answers.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at Kaiser Permanente in November 2015.

    Interview

    After applying online for the San Francisco Bay Area, I heard from a recruiter in a week. She emailed me a questionaire, a pharmacology test, and a telephone link for a phone interview. After completing it, I was asked to come in for an interview. Strange concept: it was in a conference room with separate tables. Each table had a representative from each department. You go to the table in which department you interviewed for. It was like a job fair. Other applicants from different departments were interviewing at their department tables at the same time I was interviewing. It was 30 minutes. After a week, I was contacted again by nurse manager for an interview.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Kaiser Permanente (Oakland, CA) in February 2015.

    Interview

    I had a great experience with my one on one interview with a manager at a recent job fair the new hospital in Oakland had. I felt at ease, no intimidation, comfortable and welcomed. The recruiting staff had all been amazing and answered every question I had during the hiring process.

    Interview Questions

    • The manager asked me various standard interview questions like: where do you see yourself in 5 years, tell me why you want to work for Kaiser, why do you enjoy being a nurse, tell me a time when you almost made a mistake and what did you do to prevent it, have you ever had conflict with a doctor and how did you resolve it? She also asked me to simple clinical questions, nothing too hard.   Answer Question
