    I applied online. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Cerner in March 2015.


    First Round:
    I have applied though the career website and received an email from a recruiter to schedule a telephonic interview. In this one I was asked very basic HR questions which are mentioned in the "Interview Questions" section:
    Then he told about the “Academy Learning” program for the new hires. And asked whether if I had any questions. After that he told me schedule an appointment for a video call with an engineer.

    Second Round:
    This round was conducted using a tool called HireValue which allows video calling and online code editor. The Engineer who interviewed me first talk about the company and life at CERNER. Then he asked the following questions which are mentioned in the "Interview Questions" section

    After that I was given a chance to ask some questions. Still waiting for the result.

    My Suggestion: Be 100% prepared for all the questions posted on Glassdoor and improve your design skills for questions like design a class for allergy, person.

    Wish you all the very best :)
