Project Manager/Implementation Consultant Interview

Application Details

I applied online – interviewed at Epic Systems Corporation.

Interview Details

I applied via the Epic website, received an email to set up a phone interview a couple of days later. The phone interview was pretty informal, spoke with a current Project Manager about my resume and was given a chance to ask questions about the role. Follow-up for an on-site interview was a few days later. At the on-site interview, in the morning the candidate group was given a company overview and software demonstration, then we sat down with a current Project Manager to hear more about the role and ask questions. After that we interviewed 1 on 1 with a Project Manager, which entailed typical interview questions (i.e., difficult coworker, working on teams, etc.). Then we had to give a short 10-minute presentation on the topic of our choice (no powerpoint) to 3-4 Epic employees. After this was a case study interview, where we were given 10 minutes to read through a healthcare scenario and were then asked questions about resolving issues from the case. Finally, we had the HR interview (notable questions: What are your 5 greatest weaknesses, what are misconceptions people have about you upon first meeting you), and lunch/facilities tour and the day was over.

    The interview process was really nice and informal. First I was interviewed by human resources and then I got to talk to an actual project manager at the company were she spend most of the time talking. In addition, part of the interview requires you to take to different exams.

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

    Interview Details

    Just had a phone interview so far. All I had to do was submit my resume. The interview was straightforward - just questions like "where do you see yourself in five years?" and "how did you hear about us?" Before that, there was incredibly difficult SAT-like exam, that I thought I did poorly on, but they invited me to Madison, WI for a second round of interviews.

    Interview Details

    1. Phone Interview: Do your research! When I was contacted for a phone interview, I reached out to two of my LinkedIn acquaintances working at Epic so when my interviewer asked how I heard about Epic, I really impressed him off the bat. The interview is very straightforward but be prepared to ask a lot of questions at the end about the specific position to show your interest.
    2. Skills Assessment/Personality Test: Again, I recommend that you read the reviews on here as some of the "tricky" brain teasers that could take you forever are listed on here. For the coding section, I simply wrote a list of how I would code the program and that was good enough.
    3. Onsite Interview: It was a blast! Go through the questions on Glassdoor and you'll be more than prepared. Just be yourself and have fun at their beautiful campus! If you're interviewing for PM, make your 10 minute presentation interactive and engaging.

    The interview process was a blast but I received a significantly better offer in a more desirable location that took my major into account.

    Interview Details

    Round 1: 30 minute phone call w/ HR. Went over resume/background
    Round 2: Online examinations and writing sample. The test had three sections (math, reading comp and programming logic). Overall ~4 hours
    Round 3: On-site visit to Madison. Full day of behavioral interviews w/ presentation and one case study. Toughest part was actually the final HR interview -- they asked some pretty challenging questions that didn't necessarily have a right or wrong answer.

    Interview Details

    Met with the recruiter at a campus career fair. They had me apply on the spot via iPad, which was extremely quick. From there, I received notice within two weeks that they wanted to conduct a phone interview. This process was relatively simple. I spoke with a current project manager, who had me lead through my resume and then asked a few basic interview questions. After this however was an online skills assessment, which was quite lengthy and tiresome. It asks questions regarding coding logic, along with concepts such as grammar.

    Interview Details

    Initially got a generic e-mail from Epic saying they were interested in me. I applied. They told me to take a personality test, which I did. Afterwards I had a 20 minute phone interview. It was very casual. Then I took an assessment test which was pretty hard in my opinion. Which is probably why I got the e-mail saying that they were going to move forward with other candidates. On a positive note, they were pretty fast with their responses.

    I applied online. The process took 6 daysinterviewed at Epic Systems Corporation in September 2014.

    Interview Details

    Got an email from an HR guy saying that he is pleased to schedule a phone interview ( ThursdayI) I took a short assessment and waited for my phone interview. Right before the interview I took the Long 2 hour proctored assessment over that weekend. It was a horrible experience. I started with one proctor and got handed down by like 5 of them, none of whom were answering questions I had.
    Then I got interviewed by a fellow Project Manager on Monday.( non managerial position). Which I felt went quite nice. On Tuesday, I get an email from a different HR, that I never spoke to again that i am no longer considered for the position.
    I was shocked at how they manhandled me from one HR to another. Very impersonal. Very cold and though.
    This was the company I wanted to work for, for a long time and was willing to leave everything behind and move there.
    They judge you based on your 2 assessment, that resembles GRE/GMAT. It also has brutal programming section, which is very very rough!

    I am an honor student from one of the top universities, however I am a horrible test taker, and they overlook the fact that someone could be amazing at what they do simply because they do not have test taking skills. Very very SAD!!!

    Project Manager/Implementation Consultant Interview

    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at Epic Systems Corporation in July 2014.

    Interview Details

    I first submitted an application online which just asked for some general information, resume, and an unofficial transcript from your university. GPA is a really important component for them so keep that in mind (but I don't think it will necessarily make or break the entire process). I also had a friend of mine who currently works at Epic put in a referral for me to help out.

    Within a few days, they contacted me to set up a phone interview which was really basic and nothing very intense. Basically asked how you heard about Epic, why you want to work there, and then the person talked about the position and what it's like. At the end of it, there was time for questions and my interviewer asked if I had any other offers or things on the table. I told them about my other job offer (which I think, in the end, put some pressure on them to hurry up the process).

    For my situation, they got back to me within a week to take the skills assessment test. This. Was. Challening. I am not a math/logic/programmer by any means but I tried my best. It was a series of algebraic, word, logic, and grammar problems. They also have a programming section which EVERY Epic employee is required to take (regardless of the position you are applying for). Just have a calculator and scratch paper at the ready. There was also a personality test thing that you had to take so that they can gauge what kind of person you are and if you would be a good fit for the company.

    A few days after submitting the tests, they emailed me to set up an on-site interview. I lived close enough to their campus to drive but they did put me up in a hotel for the night before and paid for dinner (yay!).

    The on-site interview is like a six-hour sprint with breaks in between each of your "events". You'll be in a small-ish group of others who are also interviewing for positions at Epic (some for the same spot, others for different ones) at the start and then it seems like you get combined with another group or two. The day began at 8:30am with an overview of the software, then I went off to do my 10 minute presentation in front of my HR recruiter and two other random employees (not that challenging if you like public speaking, performance).

    Directly after my presentation, I had a sit-down interview with my HR recruiter. First she went over basic information, why you want to work at Epic, then looked at your references and asked what strength and weakness each of those references would say about you. Then she asked a bunch of situational and behavioral questions (mainly about group work) and then some other characteristic questions.

    After the HR recruiter interview, there was a case study which was a one-sided situation of implementing the software at a new location with a few problems arising as a result. You pretend like you're an actual PM and prioritize the problems and provide some possible solutions. This was done in a small office with another one of my "group members". After filling out the sheet, a PM comes in and asks you situational questions (i.e. If this were to happen, what would you do? Why?)

    Once I completed the case study, I had the opportunity to sit down with a current PM/IC and hear what a typical work day and week is like, challenges they encountered, travel expectations, etc. This is a great time to ask a bunch of questions and pick their brain.

    Then came lunch with an Epic employee and a tour by another Epic employee (which was pretty tasty and neat!)

    My day was finally winding down but then I had a final interview with an actual PM. He also asked about situational and behavioral type questions (again, highly focused on group work). If you haven't noticed this about Epic before, it's a highly group-oriented company. From my understanding, you will be working with the SAME close-knit project team for a very long time so they want to gauge what kind of person you are and if you can handle working with different personality types.

    My day finally ended with a touch-base conversation with my HR recruiter. She went over basic things, benefits, asked about your expected salary, and if you had other offers on the table. Don't give out too many details about your other offer(s), as you can use it as leverage in the interview process. It worked to my advantage because I told Epic I needed to notify the other company within the next week.

    I had interviewed on a Wednesday and they called me the following Monday, although from reading other experiences, don't expect this fast of a turn-around time for yours (unless if you also have other offers that you can leverage to your advantage!)
