    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Cerner (Kansas City, MO (US)) in August 2016.

    Interview

    Applied for position and was invited for a phone interview the next day. I had my phone interview with a very nice lady and it lasted about 20 minutes. She reviewed my resume and asked me simple questions about my past experiences, then went on to several behavioral questions. Three days later, I was invited to attend Experience Cerner Day- all expenses paid for. It was a wonderful experience. They flew me in, and reserved a room for me in the Presidential Hilton hotel. The next day, they gave us a one hour tour of Kansas City, then brought us to Cerner's world headquarters for our interview.

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Cerner (Kansas City, MO (US)) in August 2016.

    I applied through a referral from an alumni of my college. I was contacted for a phone interview and was immediately asked to come for a final interview during the phone call. The final interview is part of what they call Experience Cerner Day. It's a series of two interviews (30 and 45 minutes) - they two interviewers were project managers and they each asked 2-3 behavioral questions. The second interview ended with a 10-15 minute presentation on a topic of my choice - the goal is to get a feel for your presentation style/ability.

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Cerner (Kansas City, MO (US)) in October 2016.

    Interview

    I applied and heard back to set up a phone interview. The Recruiter was very friendly and easy to talk to asked basic HR questions and then one behavioral question. Invited to Experience Cerner Day during phone interview and she explained everything that would happen that day. I attended ECD and it was awesome! They were so accommodating Thursday night went on KC tour and dinner to ask other consulting Analyst about the job and questions. We were free to do as we pleased after the dinner and tour. Next morning breakfast was provided at the hotel and they bussed us to World HQ. There was a presentation and then they sent us to individual rooms for interviews. You have 2 30 minute interviews both which are so conversational and easy to talk to. There is nothing to stress as long as you looked through Glassdoor questions. The second interview you give your presentation at the end (it's just in front of one person) and they don't care about the topic just wanting to see if u are able to present in front of somebody. Then they provided us with lunch in the cafeteria and more Analyst were there to answer questions. We then went on a tour of the fitness and physicians office at WHQ. Came back and there was another presentation. And then they took us to our cars for us to head home. They said we would hear back in 2 weeks. But I heard back within a week and half.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Cerner (Kansas City, MO (US)) in September 2016.

    Interview

    First, I spoke to an on campus recruiter. Within the next week I was contacted by the recruiter by email and offered an opportunity to travel to Kansas City to interview on-site at Cerner headquarters. They flew me out to KC and that night we had a tour of the city and a networking dinner. The next day we were taken to the campus. In the morning we had our interviews.

    There were two interviews. The first interviewer I had was a younger woman, and she was super laid back and only asked me about 3 questions from the packet of questions that she had in front of her. The rest of the time we talked about normal things and life in general. The next interviewer was an older woman, and she asked me two questions off of every page in the packet (so about 6-7 questions) and was much more serious than the other woman who had interviewed me. At the end of the second interview, you are asked to give a 10-15 minute presentation on a topic of your choice. I brought notecards, but they are not required. Be prepared to answer questions throughout your presentation.

    Overall, I had a great experience intervewing with Cerner. They got back to me with an offer within a week of the interview.
