    Clinical Trials Manager Interview

    Anonymous Employee in San Diego, CA
    Accepted Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 6+ weeks. I interviewed at Kaiser Permanente (San Diego, CA) in January 2017.

    Interview

    Hiring process is long and cumbersome. Used a recruiter who wasn't at all familiar with the Kaiser HR system. Multiple interviews and hundreds of miles driving to and from canceled and rescheduled (Kaiser staff) interviews over a 6 week period.

    Interview Questions

    • Mostly flexibility and leadership questions.   1 Answer

    Negotiation

    Zero negotiation. Hard set salary plus the recruiter takes a chunk which could have gone to the boost candidate rate.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Kaiser Permanente (San Diego, CA).

    Interview

    I was only asked to participate in one interview with a two person panel. Prior to the interview I completed a writing assignment. I was offered the job right away, but the required background check delayed my start date. Overall it was a great interview experience. I would rather complete a writing assignment than do numerous job interviews.

    Accounting Administrative Representative Interview

    Anonymous Employee in San Diego, CA

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at Kaiser Permanente (San Diego, CA) in December 2015.

    Interview

    This position received 750 applicants. They called me about 1 wk after applying and had me take a test online. After that, I was scheduled for my interview about 4 days later. It was a panel style interview with Managers from Nationals, Large, Phone Team & Membership Accounts. There was 4 managers and they had a 2 page sheet with about 6 questions. As soon as you answer, they start writing down everything you say, even if you ask a question like "When can I expect to hear a result", they will answer you, but not until they wrote it down first. I heard 2 days later from the recruiter that I was offered the position & I accepted. Background check took about a month, and since they have new hire training only once monthly, my start date was pushed back 2 months.
