Project Manager/Implementation Consultant Interview

Anonymous Interview Candidate

Application Details

I applied through college or university. The process took 4 weeksinterviewed at Epic Systems Corporation.

Interview Details

I met an Epic recruiter at my university's career fair and gave her my resume. A few days later, I received an email saying that they wanted to set up a phone interview.

The phone interview was pretty straightforward - I was asked to explain my background, my interest in Epic, answer the ole "where do you see yourself in 5 years" question, and given plenty of opportunity to ask questions about the job and Epic in general. I had prepared quite thoroughly by researching Epic and developing a list of back-up questions to ask, so my interviewer and I talked for a long time. I'd recommend also asking questions throughout the interview if you think of them, so they know that you're actually listening while they're talking and can engage them in conversation, not just ask prepared questions.

About a week later I took the infamous Epic skills test.The math section is mainly composed of word problems/tricky "math riddles". There is a writing section which asks you to correct grammar mistakes (fairly easy, this is something you could study for), a logic section (analogies and puzzles - take your TIME to think through the puzzles and don't panic!) and a programming section where they teach you some basic concepts of a language and you answer questions based on their mini-lessons/examples. My understanding is that if you have programming experience, the section should be a breeze. I have zero programming experience, and the questions got increasingly more difficult, so by the end I was really struggling to come up with answers.... but I guess I did well enough to pass.

A few days after I took my skills test, I received an email saying that they wanted to bring me in for the on-site (final round) interviews. They flew me into Madison and I had dinner with a couple of Epic employees along with 4 or 5 other job candidates the night before my interview. This was a fun, informal time to get to know some people from Epic and ask them pretty much anything we wanted to know about the company and the area.

The on-site interviews: First I attended a presentation where Epic software was introduced. I then had a one-on-one session with a current PM/IC who talked to me specifically about what the position and answered my questions about it (this was not an interview.) Next I had a case study. They gave me and another candidate a case to read, and after what felt like only 10 minutes (but was probably longer than that) the interviewer came back into room to ask us questions about the case. She asked the same questions to both of us, and we switched off giving her our answers. I don't think the case questions were difficult; they just required some common sense and decisiveness. It somehow morphed into a full-blown behavioral interview, and she asked lots of "give me an example of a time that you....." questions. After the case study was over, I immediately went to another behavioral interview. This was non-stop behavioral questions for about half an hour and it was somewhat exhausting, especially since it was right after the case study. I highly recommend preparing for this by thinking of your major accomplishments and difficult situations at work/school/activities that you've tackled. Afterwards, I went to give my 10-minute presentation that I'd prepared. There were just a few Epic employees as my "audience" and they were very friendly. Make sure to pick a topic that you find enjoyable and comfortable to talk about. Have fun with it!
After lunch we were given a partial tour of campus, and then I had my HR interview (last interview of the day.) This included a few more behavioral questions, and some questions about whether or not I'd be willing to re-locate, the salary I was expecting, etc.

I received a call one week later from my HR person with an offer.

    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at Epic Systems Corporation.

    Interview Details

    The first litmus test to qualify for this position is the following:

    ACT score above 30 (or SAT equivalent)
    GPA above 3.3
    good impression on first phone interview/in-person interview
    Perform well on the online test where they give you situations and ask you to prioritize in which order you would process or address things

    If you meet the marks in the above you will likely get an on-site interview.

    On-site they basically issue a mini-SAT test, give you a case study and ask you to make a presentation

    Interview Questions
    • None, They don't care to ask the dumb and common questions, 3 strengths, 3 weakness? etc. One question that was unexpected is this:

      "Name five things you are not" (can't use physical descriptors)

    The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at Epic Systems Corporation.

    Interview Details

    Applied through an employee referral and got an email about 4 weeks later asking me to take a Personality test, to schedule a phone interview, and to take a skills assessment test that was proctored through and online company. The skills test was like a general problem solving consulting test mixed with an ACT or SAT style of test. There were four sections to it: speed, Quantitative, English questions, and a sample programming section.

    The phone interview screen was pretty informal and standard. It was more for you to learn about epic

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Epic Systems Corporation.

    Interview Details

    The process consisted of an informational interview, a personality test, an extended test (3 hours long) with subjects that included grammar, mathematics, logic puzzles, and computer programming. It is a seriously flawed process. I would recommend not wasting your time.

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Epic Systems Corporation.

    Interview Details

    This has been kind of a roller coaster experience. I was initially contacted by an HR recruiter who found my resume on my school's career website. My degree has nothing to do with healthcare or software but apparently my grades were good enough. I completed the personality profile, online assessment (4 parts: 2-minute speed test, verbal, math, intro programming), and phone interview within about a week of my official application to the position. I received an email later that they were moving on with candidates for PM/IC but were considering me for Quality Assurance. After applying for QA, I received an email saying that they would like me to complete a writing sample assessment as well, which I hadn't anticipated based on the other QA reviews on here. I assume it may be because I'm also being considered for a writing position? I am preparing to take the writing assessment soon and am anticipating an on-site interview for some position, at least.

    Interview Questions
    • The phone interview was very chill, basic "where do you see yourself in 5 years" questions. The assessment had some tricky math logic questions but was otherwise fine. Some of the questions can be found scattered throughout these reviews.   Answer Question

    Interview Details

    The hiring process consisted of (1) a very casual phone interview with generic questions, (2) an approximately three-hour long assessment test with logic questions and questions that test your ability to learn a fake program, and (3) a day-long on-sight interview. The on-sight interview includes a tour of the campus, lunch, a rather simple case interview, and a presentation, during which you are allowed to present any topic of your choice. My only regret is not preparing for the presentation. I winged it. Be confident and personable.

    Long, tedious, multiple steps. The tests took a lot of time that I didn't necessarily have and the interview was fine, but I did not end up getting the offer. This may be good, because I don't really feel it would have been a good match.

    Application Details

    I applied online – interviewed at Epic Systems Corporation.

    Interview Details

    Applied through their website with a basic application. Took me about 5 minutes to fill it out. No cover letter required. Then I heard back from them in a day or two that they were interested in me. They had me schedule an online assessment (math, read comprehension, brain teasers, SAT-like but trickier) and a phone interview. Phone interview was really easy but the online assessment was pretty difficult and I didn't expect that. I thought the assessment was just to make sure you had a pulse and knew 2+2 = 4 but I think they actually put a decent amount of stock in how well you do on it.
