    Employee Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Interview Details

    Slow, Dis-organised. Managed out of India. background check by HireRight (read the reviews about this company)
    The process took over 5 weeks and I heard very little throughout this time from CERNER, I suspect they think the Kansas City Induction will fill in the gaps.

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Sydney
    Application Details

    I applied through other source. The process took 2 months - interviewed at Cerner in March 2013.

    Interview Details

    Vague, misleading, mostly done over the phone via the US and one or two meeting in person in Sydney/Brisbane. Over sold in the process, too many steps in the process.

    Interview Questions
    • You don't ask enough questions. HR involvement was non existent, the managers questions were inappropriate at times.   Answer Question
    Negotiation Details
    Painful, it took 3 days to get a few extra thousand dollars approved, then very underwhelmed with the offer. Wouldn't budge on adding a bonus component.

    Systems Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took 4+ weeks - interviewed at Cerner in October 2011.

    Interview Details

    Were very polished and polite in the interview process. Actually persuaded me to join their company instead of taking the already-existing offer from Oracle. They also came up on salary from 55k to 57k starting. I would say that, in retrospect, they are probably the smoothest company I've ever interviewed with.

    Interview Questions
    • It was tremendously easy. The most unexpected question was probably when they asked me to describe wiki technology and why it's useful.   Answer Question
    Negotiation Details
    They came up a couple of thousand on salary because I had an offer elsewhere.
