After application, there's a personality test, e-mail interview a few weeks later, phone interview a few weeks after that, skills assessment a few weeks after that and a response a couple weeks later. Whole process took ~2 months.

Interview Details –
Epic does fantastic work at getting the right people in the door and through the process. They also make a point of letting you know your status (accepted, rejected, etc), which, for rejections, is unusual for most employers. This makes a huge difference, and is one indicator of why they're such a great company. If you're coming form college, look for career fairs or job-board postings, and contact any alums that work there. If you're post-graduation, go to their website and apply online. If your GPA is greater than a 3.5 and you've done impressive work related to the applied-for role, then you're likely to get a phone screen. the Phone screen makes sure both parties understand what the job entails, and that there's nothing obvious that disqualifies a candidate. If that goes well, you'll take some tests. These are super-important, as Epic uses metrics to systematically (and thus unbiasedly) critique your application. If you aren't used to logic-based tests, brush up on those skills...but other than that, there's no way to study for them. If you get an in-person interview, dress comfortably (no suits required) and presentably, and be yourself. If you're trying to play a role, you'll come off awkward -- be your awesome self, and hopefully it'll be a good fit.
Epic usually responds to all candidates, through all stages, within 1-2wks of the last milestone.
Interview Question – What's the most significant achievement in your life so far? (and then all the subsequent follow-up questions related to that) View Answer
Negotiation Details – There's very little negotiation. But that's fine, as once you get in the door, there's lots of opportunities for increasing your salary and responsibilities by doing great work.

Interview Details – Epic has a detailed and long interview process. Expect it to take some time. You take an online personality test, have a screening phone interview, and then take some written assessments. If you pass each of those steps, you are invited to interview at their campus. They show you the company and the onsite interviews consist of a couple one-on-one interviews and an oral presentation.

Interview Details – Started with a phone interview which was very simple and straightforward. Then was invited to an in person interview in Madison. Started with a dinner and tour of Madison with an employee followed by a full day of interviews. Included a presentation, many 1-1 interviews, and a part where I had to read through a scenario with one other candidate and we had to take turns giving a response to questions. Also had to do some computer work and tests.
Interview Question – Tell me about a time that you failed. Answer Question

Interview Details – First they conduct an over the phone interview which is rather 'lax, mainly they just want to introduce themselves and the company. After that they will contact you for a skills assessment which has multiple parts, including some programming. If they are still interested they will send you out to Madison. I didn't make it past the skills assessment, they contacted me a few weeks after I took it to let me know that I didn't get to the next phase.
Interview Question – They were all standard questions, just be prepared to ask them questions I think they like to hear that you have done your homework and know about Epic. Answer Question
