    Consultant - Market Strategy Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at Kaiser Permanente in January 2015.

    Interview Details

    Applied online. HR person responded back with a questionnaire to fill out stating salary requirements and to respond to a few questions. Got a response back that the max salary for this was well below my current salary. I decided to proceed anyway. Did a 1 on 1 with a sr mgr (1h). They are quick to schedule you in but did not tell me it was 1h long. Luckily I could push back my other meeting. But the call was a very structured interview, not a lot of time to answer questions about the organization on their part though. Easy case study. Second round included coming into their office. I met with the same senior mgr again for an hour. Lot of open-ended questions, no structure to the interview this time. Where do you see yourself in 5 years, etc. Questions seem to come on the fly. Again, not a lot of time to answer questions so I can understand their organization. In the end she cut it short, as it was probably evident that this was my practice interview as I was gearing up for other interviews not related to health care. They want someone dedicated to health care market strategy (not too many job openings in this realm so if this is truly what you want, then make sure you do your research around this). I think a market strategist coming from a CPG, CE or any other industry could be a good fit to this role, just have to be be nimble enough to respond to the current regulatory issues around healthcare but all industries will have constraints.

    I applied online. The process took 7+ monthsinterviewed at Kaiser Permanente.

    Interview Details

    Contacted 2 months after applying online. Recruiter left a message for me and didn't return my calls until 3 weeks later. When I spoke to the Recruiter she did the phone interview screening and said I would hear back within 2 weeks. 1.5 months later I receive a call for a physical interview. Attended the panel interview and felt very comfortable with the Senior Managers who were very friendly and made the interview more like a conversation. At the end of the interview they set up 4 role playing scenerios to determined my leadership style. I was told I would hear from them in about 2 to 3 weeks as they had 20 more interviews scheduled. 1.5 months later I received and call to set up a group interview for the final candidates. When I attended the group interview it was set up with 4 Managers and 4 final applicants including myself. We were each asked a question and then went on a very detailed tour of the campus. After the tour we met with the Operations Director seperately for about 40 mins each. I was told in 10 business days I would find out the outcome. 47 long days of waiting- I received a call for the Senior Manager offering me the job. 3 weeks later my background check completed and then I was scheduled for my New Hire orientation.
