Project Manager/Implementation Consultant Interview

Anonymous Interview Candidate in Madison, WI

Difficult Interview

Application

I applied through college or university. The process took 3+ weeksinterviewed at Epic Systems Corporation (Madison, WI).

Interview

There were three phases to the interview. I would recommend doing plenty of research on this website if you want to advance. I spent hours looking at reviews on this website and I can honestly say it helped me tremendously. Phase 1) Met a recruiter at my college job fair and was contacted a week later saying they would like me to take the exam and do a phone interview. Phase 2) Exam and phone interview. Phone interview was very brief and was with a current PM. I could tell that it wasn't really about the interview and what mattered was how well I did on the exam. Phone interview was basic and lasted like ten minutes. Questions were things like "where do you see yourself in five years, what do you know about the role, how often are you willing to travel, why Epic?". The exam will take around two hours. It took me just under two. It's filmed and there is a virtual proctor making sure that you don't cheat. There are four sections - speed, math, comprehension/grammar, and programming. For this position, the programming part is more of a can you pick things up quickly and use logical thought. It was tough but if you do your research on here and on Google you'll come in with an idea of what the questions will be like. There's also a behavioral test that takes around 30 minutes of your time. It'll make you rank things and put what you're most like. Phase 3) If you make it through phase two, they'll email you and ask you to fly out within the next two weeks. That part is really fun. You can choose to get dinner with an employee the night before your actual interview and get a feel for the role. If you do this you'll meet other applicants and get to experience some of Madison's downtown cuisine. The process is pretty seamless and stress free. Epic is flying in tons of recruits so everything is very planned and orderly. If you're good with people, this is your time to shine. -The actual interview the next day consists of 4 interviews, one presentation, one case study, lunch, and an intro to the actual software. There's an informal interview with an actual PM where you just kinda talk about the role and ask questions. Then there's an HR interview where you'll be asked behavioral questions. Most of these center on how well you're able to work in a group --my advice is to emphasize the importance of communication and being a team player. This is where you'll need to think of your STAR format answers. After that, there's an interview with a PM where you'll be asked specific questions regarding how you'd handle things as a PM. The questions are more about how you think and how you react to things. The fourth interview is one with HR that's pretty brief. It just asks typical questions, all of which you can see on this website in someone's review. This is where the "list five things you're not" question comes in. I found this part to be the most exhausting because it was the end of the day and I was really tired. For some reason it was harder for me to think of answers during this interview than any of the others. They'll also ask you what you want your starting salary to be--and if you're just graduating college the correct answer is anywhere from the high 50's to the mid-sixties. That's the typical range for the position if you've got less than a year of professional experience. The presentation is pretty standard and you'll get to make it on anything you want. My advice is to pick something topical that the people will find interesting. There was a lady frowning at me the entire time I did mine which kind of threw me but eh. The case study is pretty basic and they're really just looking to see if you can think logically and back up your answers. You're given a scenario and ten minutes to review it before you've gotta write down the issues and their order of importance and what you'd do to solve them. Lunch is just in the cafeteria with a ton of other applicants and an employee. I was flown out on Monday and received my offer later that week. I also had another job on the table and that expedited the process. My advice to anyone reading this would be to do your research. Come in prepared by looking through all the reviews on this website and googling epic stuff. Also, if you're not good with people, practice(?). Although, this may not be the job for you if you're not a people person. I'm a people person so I made sure to talk to every employee and applicant and try to connect. Don't go overboard though, there's a delicate balance when it comes to working a room and seeming enthusiastic about the position vs trying too hard. I immediately accepted my offer because it seems like a pretty sweet deal. The campus was amazing and the people were really, really friendly. But if you're just starting the process-- make sure you take time and do well on those tests.

    Interview

    Very structured process, definitely made a process out of it. Moved around the company during my time in Verona, talked to people of different roles. Definitely clear they selected the most loyal employees to handle this, as everyone was more hyped on Epic than average.

    Interview

    First part is an online application, followed by an online test. If they like you, they fly you out for an onsite interview. The online test is brutal, and you will feel like you did horribly, but I got an interview after that anyway and got to fly out. Still waiting to hear back.

    Interview

    A day after applying online I was asked to setup a phone interview and take an online assessment. Personally I thought the test was logical to follow however the time limits we slightly stressful. The phone interview was very low key and was basically just asking about my resume and past experiences.

    Interview

    I applied through their website and was contacted within a couple of days by an HR rep that wanted to do a phone interview. First, she asked me to take a couple of assessments. The first was just a personality test that I would guess was assessing leadership/teamwork skills. The second test was through ProctorU and took a few hours to complete. I have no programming experience, so I found the test to be pretty difficult for the programming portion. The math/reading/logic sections were fairly easy though. I had the phone interview the day after the ProctorU exam. I had written down a bunch of backup questions to ask at the end of the interview, and it was a good thing I did, because right after introductions, my interviewer asked me if I had any questions about the company. Essentially, she was looking to give me a description of the position through answering my questions, so make sure you prepare for that just in case! I thought the phone interview went well enough, but I didn't really expect a call back for an in-person interview because I think I did really poorly on the exam. A week after the phone interview, I received an email that said they decided to move forward with other candidates..

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 4 weeksinterviewed at Epic Systems Corporation in June 2015.

    Interview

    I was contacted by a recruiter. I received an email asking me to set up a phone interview and take two tests the day after I submitted the online application. The tests were not easy and took me about two hours. The phone interview was a about 16 minutes and asked questions that could be answered with very short answers. One week later I received an email saying they were moving forward with other candidates. The whole process was quick and clear except that the proctored test was inconvenient.

    Interview

    I applied online and they had HR reach out set up a time to take an online personality test and general test. Very straightforward and not difficult but time consuming. Then a phone interview was set up where they asked basic questions. The phone interview went into details regarding the resume as well as the the background of their company but limited in that sense compared to other interviews.

    I applied through college or university. The process took 5 weeksinterviewed at Epic Systems Corporation (Verona, WI) in June 2015.

    Interview

    I was first contacted after applying on my University's job link webite and was contacted by an EPIC recruiter. I then had a initial phone interview, then was invited to have a second phone interview. I was then sent a proctored assessment that you had to schedule to take with Proctor-U. At that point I was called and told that I was potentially a good fit for two positions, the implementation consultant as well as Quality Assurance (Software Tester). They told me that they wanted to fly me out for an in person interview. The campus was AMAZING and so were the people.
