Problem Solver/Technical Consultant Interview

Difficult Interview

Application

I applied through a recruiter. The process took 6+ weeks. I interviewed at Epic Systems Corporation in May 2015.

Interview

Great HR, friendly people, and an astounding company mission and purpose with flawed recruitment techniques. I was contacted by a recruiter to apply for the position via email. Once applying, I received another email to schedule a phone interview and take a management skills assessment test. Upon completion of these tasks, I was prompted to set up a time to take the Epic Skills Assessment test, where things went awry. The "Non-Technical Assessment" is in fact very technical, and I only had the opportunity to take two assessments, both having to do with programming and its related logic. This detail is very different than the "four assessment" non-tech test which you will read about in other reviews. To this affect, the online proctoring service reaffirmed this 4-part assumption when providing exam rules before I began, and this information sounded like it would provide a much more holistic view of a candidate (writing/logic/math with a hint of coding). Brush up on your coding if you're going to pursue this recruiting process, because it appears they don't appreciate mixing and matching; moreover, prepare to be deduced to a painted picture of binaries and not that of an individual. Overall, it proved to be a waste of my efforts in countless hours spent scheduling/rescheduling due to technical difficulties, researching the company, and completing the tasks required. I wish them the best in adapting their recruitment methods to achieve a more balanced profile for such a customer-facing role!

    Interview

    I was emailed by who worked at Epic suggesting that I apply to work there after graduation. I applied, had a casual phone interview, took a three hour long test, and went to Epic for an on site interview. The on site interview was pretty casual and everyone was nice. I received a phone call two weeks later telling me that I did not get the job.

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Epic Systems Corporation in May 2014.

    Interview

    I applied through career center job posting at my university. First, there was a short phone interview which was super easy, nothing unexpected. Then, I was scheduled to take an online assessment test which consisted of several parts. Some logic, math etc questions. The most difficult part was a programming assessment where you had to write a program in the language you know (or a pseudo code) to solve a given problem. It consisted of 3 problems and I did only one. I am guessing this hurt me since I wasn't advanced to the next stage of the interview process.

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at Epic Systems Corporation.

    Interview

    They found my resume posted on my college's career site and contacted me. Getting notification for setting up interview times was quick and efficient; they really love using e-mail. The interview was the most awkward thing I have ever done; the interviewer didn't seem to know what she was doing. But that process is the easiest. I ended up taking the online exams and it took over 2 weeks for them to get back to me.

    Interview Questions

    • As someone who doesn't know how to program at all, the programming portion of the exam was very difficult.   Answer Question

    Application

    I applied through college or university. I interviewed at Epic Systems Corporation.

    Interview

    Initial phone interview, basic behavioral style and basic questions about resume/background info. Interviewer seemed like he just wanted to make sure I was interested in the position. Online computer programming test that used a generic programming language to test technical skills/capabilities. Will be invited to visit the Epic campus in Wisconsin if your performance on the test meets their hiring standards.

    Interview Questions

    • Some technical problem solving required on programming test.   Answer Question

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took a week. I interviewed at Epic Systems Corporation.

    Interview

    Was approached at a career fair and was called for an interview 2 days later. The interview was basic, just a discussion of your background, etc. Received an email the next day to take an online assessment. Took the assessment yesterday, it was about 2 hours long. I have serious reservations about a company that uses a intelligence assessment online for someone with a PhD. I am now waiting to hear back from them.

    Reasons for Declining

    I don't like the vibe I get.. sounds like everyone is just running around putting out one fire after the next, poorly planned and run in large part by people too young to manage a group of people.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Epic Systems Corporation.

    Interview

    The whole interview process was very long. It started with applying online. Around a week or so later I was asked to do an online survey. Almost like a personality test. About two weeks later I was called to do a phone interview. This is the basic interview you would normally think of. Best qualities, worst qualities, etc.. Another week or two and I was sent to a testing center to take a test. Fairly easy if you're good at logic questions. I was then flown out to Madison. They treat their recruits very very well. I had a great time when I was there. The interview process while there is very scheduled. Exactly as the other reviews have said.
