The process took 3 months - interviewed at Epic Systems Corporation in September 2011.
Interview Details – As people have stated, Epic's hiring process can be exceptionally convoluted and drawn out. After submitting my resume, I had an incredibly routine phone interview. The interviewer seemed nice and competent enough, but at the same time he was mostly reading off a script and just checking off boxes. (I suppose this is understandable, as they seem to interview a huge amount of applicants.) Then, a week later (the process never moved faster than a week at a time, generally it would take much longer) they emailed to schedule a skills assessment test at a remote location, in this case my local library. It was in two parts--one introducing you to a fictional computer language and testing your aptitude and the second giving you five programming questions. Though my position's posting only recommended programming experience (and its description made it seem like most "programming would be in SAS or a similar stats package), the test seemed like it was the same whether you were applying for the Healthcare Analytics position or, say, Software Developer, which made it rather difficult for me (who had almost no programming experience) but would probably be really easy for the kind of person who would be applying for the Developer position. Anyway, it took me around a month and a half (with emails back and forth each week) before they let me know they weren't interested. I imagine my programming test results were the biggest problem in my application, as I was a relatively strong candidate otherwise.
