    Senior Statistical Analyst Interview

    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Cerner.

    Interview Details

    Initial communications were positive but seemed that recruiters were spread too thin and too busy to keep up. Interview was very different than what I had done previously. You have to give specific examples of a time when you encountered a scenario - an actual story - not a 'what I would do'. Very HR oriented questions without specific skill set questions about the position.

    Interview Questions
    • Why do you want to work for Cerner? Tell me about a time you used several resources to improve a process and what the impact of that was (lots like these).   Answer Question
    Negotiation Details
    yes, I negotiated 5% higher. I wish I had gone higher because my first annual raise was only 2.4%!

    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter – interviewed at Cerner.

    Interview Details

    This was an easy and straightforward interview. I submitted my resume and cover letter online and was asked to do a phone interview with a member of HR. After that, I had two back to back 30 min interviews with Cerner employees in similar or previously similar positions. I was offered the position 3 days later and given the opportunity to fly out and visit Kansas City and the Cerner headquarters.

    Interview Questions
    • Why Cerner (over other companies/places--the interviewer knew I had been through many other interviews that week)?   Answer Question
    Reasons for Declining

    I received another offer at a similar time with a shorter, non-flexible deadline that had a higher salary and was for a position I was more interested in.

    Software Interview

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 6 daysinterviewed at Cerner.

    Interview Details

    I applied online and got invited for brief phone interview with an HR worker first. This consisted entirely of behavioral questions and points about my resume. About 1 day later, I had a more comprehensive interview with one of the Software engineers over skype. I don't particularly like doing this sort of thing over the internet, but the guy was quite nice and to the point. There were a few behavioral questions here, but mostly technical. Still waiting to hear if I get to go to the next step.

    Interview Questions
    • Most of the questions asked are posted on glassdoor. I recommend not skimping over the behaviour questions though, as Cerner seems to value these more highly than other companies I have encountered.   Answer Question
