Step 3: Pre-Hire Assessments

For some positions, Kaiser Permanente conducts online pre-hire assessments to evaluate a combination of aptitude, behavioral competencies, skills (e.g., typing, data entry), and knowledge of candidates. We will contact you if a pre-hire assessment is required for the job you expressed interest in. Click here for more information on assessments.

Step 4: Candidate Review and Interview

If your skills and experience appear to align with those of the position, a Talent Acquisition Professional may contact you for additional screening. This may lead to further interview(s) conducted by phone, in-person, and/or video. Due to the high volume of submissions we receive, we cannot contact each person who submits a resume for consideration.

Identifying the right people for the right roles can take time, so thank you in advance for your patience.

Step 5: Candidate Selection

Once you’ve been selected for a position, your phone will ring and our Talent Acquisition Professional will make you a verbal offer. (Insert fist-pump here!) This conversation will be followed by a written offer letter.

Once you’ve accepted the offer letter and passed applicable pre-employment screenings and verifications — including drug and background checks — your start date will be confirmed and you’ll be part of our Kaiser Permanente family!
