It seems they hire from within a lot, or that you have to know someone to get an interview. Even with that interview, they usually have someone else in mind for the position.

It took them 4 months to call me for an interview. Then after being hired, I found out that the in-house applicants did not want to work with the hiring manager.

Literally took them 2 yrs to call me back. I was surprised they still had my resume and application. It's not easy getting your foot in the door with Kaiser. Most of the hiring is done from within the company. Once you do get your foot in the door then you're set. It pays well and the benefits are good, but the stress takes a toll on you. Unfortunately the Kaisers in Southern California are run by the unions. Therefore you have a lot of politics,thuggery and insubordination amongst you. It takes a heck of a lot for someone to get reprimanded or fired for not doing their job. A very hostile work environment at times. Kick the Union's out of Kaiser, and the company would be so much better.

Unfortunately no courtesy calls are made unless they are interested in continuing with moving you to the next step in the hiring process.

I had an interview last year. They initially told me they were down to 2 candidates for the position and then they confirmed my references. However, they never called my references and I was surprised they never called me back with any updates.

Call backs are depending on how many applicants. Not sure how long it takes for a call back. I believe that they do give a courtesy call.

After the 1st interview it took 6 weeks before the 2nd interview was scheduled, then I was advised it would be at least 5 weeks before they made a decision. I did not get a courtesy call and I did send a follow up email to the main interviewer but never received a response.
