    Financial Analyst Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Interview Details

    Got email notification from HR within days of applying. Answered basic screening questions, a repeat of screening questions already asked and answered when applying online. Interview appointment was set up pretty quickly and casually. Standard canned interview questions, practically like an online questionnaire (why do you want this job, how do you deal with hostile coworkers, what do you do if your boss's peer wants you to do something...). There was a long quiet period until second round interviews. People seemed generally very nice, but very guarded at the same time, as if they/we were always being recorded or watched.

    Interview Questions
    • Estimate annual demand for batteries in the US. A typical Google interview question, like how many golf balls fit in a school bus.   Answer Question
    Reasons for Declining

    One interviewer said they were constantly fighting with IT to get data access, equipment and software upgrades. And losing.

    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 6 daysinterviewed at Kaiser Permanente.

    Interview Details

    I got an email to attend an interview in about a week and had time to prepare for it. The interview wasn't too difficult or out of the ordinary, but be prepared to speak for a group as there tends to be 2-3 interviewers. The head interviewer didn't think I was ready, but the other two liked me as a candidate. Oh well. Took them 4 weeks or so to get back to me after that.

    Application Details

    The process took 2+ monthsinterviewed at Kaiser Permanente.

    Interview Details

    Kaiser's hiring process can take 3-6 months, be patient. They make a point of having interviewees speak with only relevant personnel. Since KP's marketing group uses focused analytics in its preparation for, execution and testing/measuring, a member of the analytics team will surely be part of the interview. The process takes a while, but it's to the point.

    Interview Questions
    • Kaiser nurses are striking at KP's medical facilities in Southern California. KP has been made aware of the pickets. What resources and processes will you use to communicate to members and employees on the situation and what to do if you encounter the strikers?   Answer Question
