    Application

    I applied online – interviewed at Kaiser Permanente.

    Interview

    The interview was a very brief phone interview that lasted about 5-10 minutes. It was pretty casual and asked the generic interview questions, such as about projects I've worked on and what I want to do in the future. After the interview, they emailed me back a couple days later with an offer, but I had to decline for other reasons.

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at Kaiser Permanente (Sacramento, CA (US)).

    Interview

    I was directed to a hotel where I was told to sit in the hallway and wait. After entering the interview room I was directed to two people who ask me a multitude of different questions. It was a pretty comfortable situation and they were very nice. I didn't feel as though I was being interrogated being as though that Is how it feels when more than one person interviews you. The interview was more like a conversation. Aftwe the interview I was told they would be doing call backs within the next couple weeks. It was like hell waiting on the phone call. I had given up as I had waited close to 2 1/2 weeks, even emailing the recruiter to ask if she had heard anything in which she replied no. I had given up hope when I received an email saying thanks but no thanks but I had applied for so many of the same position that I still had a glimmer of hope. I was pleasantly suprisee when I got the call saying I was chosen as a yes!I am just waiting for a call to let me know when I have to come in for the drug test and finalize everything !! Don't give up hope. I had applied for a number of years but more frequently because I got fed up with my current job. My whole family works for kaiser and they could not even get me in. Best advice is don't give up and apply fast as soon as they post the job because they are gone in leat than 5 minutes!

    I applied online. The process took 7+ weeksinterviewed at Kaiser Permanente in April 2015.

    Interview

    It's a lengthy process, got first call to set up phone interview, you must pass phone interview in order for your information to get sent to the hiring supervisor. Then it's up to them if they want to interview you face to face. I passed the phone interview, They ask generic interview questions, tell me what you did at your previous positions? What is customer service to you? . They wish you luck and encourage you to reapply in case you don't get called in. A week later I heard nothing still, so I gave them a call, the lady told me it's just a waiting game now, it's up to them if they want to bring me in. The very next day I get a call asking to come in for an interview. Interview day comes and get interviewed by RN and Supervisor. They has a list of about 20 questions some usual interview ones, and the other Clinical ones, so know your stuff! They said they were looking to make a decision next week. The very next morning they called me and asked me a few more questions and I was offered the position, best day of my life, aside from when my son was born of course.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeksinterviewed at Kaiser Permanente (Portland, OR (US)).

    Interview

    A 3 step process - HR, Director followed by a Peer interview.
    Applied for 2 separate jobs and The HR team was terrific in both cases.
    In one the interview with the director went great but was up against a Peer team that was not upto the mark. Very cynical and it was clear that they did not possess the experience to do justice to their roles.
    Their bad feedback denied my case.
    In the second one - did not get thro' the initial interview with the director. Went on expected lines except for one Q that didn't meet expectations.. including mine. That probably settled it against my favor. No complaints though. I probably deserved it for not being ready for it.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through a staffing agency – interviewed at Kaiser Permanente.

    Interview

    I went for an interview first. There are two people interview me. Each of them had an interview list. They take turn to ask me question following the lists. I'm really excited to work for Kaiser, but when I told the agency that i'm done with the interview. She told me to take the Assessment Test before the process done. Next day, she called me and said I didn't pass the assessment test that mean I didn't get the job. Working for kaiser is my dream job, but it is so hard for me to get in. Hope one day, I can get the job in Kaiser.

    It was more in depth than I was anticipating. A lot of questions that required an example. They wrote on a sheet that had questions pre wrote on them as they asked questions. They started with the basic tell us about your work history then started the questioning.
