Technical Services Problem-Solver Interview

Anonymous Employee

Application Details

I applied online – interviewed at Epic Systems Corporation.

Interview Details

You start off by scheduling a phone interview. It was very relaxed. The person who I talked to was actually kind of awkward. They just confirm details on your resume. They will ask you about your projects and classes. Probably a week later I got an e-mail asking to schedule an online assessment and personality test.

This online assessment is interesting. It is proctored online and has 4 sections: speed test, coding, fake code, and math.
The speed test is simple math problems and you have 2 minutes to answer them. The coding portion is self explanatory but I think it's unfair for people who don't have a coding background such as myself. The fake code section is testing you capacity to learn on the fly. It uses a made up coding language and you need to apply the rules they tell you to the questions they give. Not too bad besides using code jargon that I wasn't super familiar with. Finally the math assessment was a mix of word problems and riddles.

About 2 weeks later I was told they were looking at other candidates.

    Application Details

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

    Interview Details

    The first time I was contacted, I was asked to schedule a phone interview. The phone interview was more like a casual screening and focused more on helping the applicant understand the position's responsibilities and Epic's expectations a little better. I was only asked a few clarification questions about my resume and asked to explain how a few of my past experiences related to my current interests. The interviewer was incredibly friendly and helpful.

    The next step is an online assessment and a Rembrandt Profile. The Profile only takes about 20 minutes and is just an assessment of your personality - don't stress too much about your choices. The technical assessment took longer (about 3 hours for me). There are two math/logic sections, one timed, one untimed, which anyone that knows basic algebra can handle, but some logic questions can be tricky. The programming sections were most difficult for me since I'd only taken a class or two in coding, but I just did the best I could. Which I guess was fine since they also said I should consider a position as an Integration Engineer.

    I just got asked to come interview on-site which I've heard is also pretty relaxed but the interview questions do go more in-depth.

    I applied online – interviewed at Epic Systems Corporation.

    Interview Details

    Applied online, then got a email the next day asking to set up a phone interview which was very informal. Just go over your resume and career goals. Then set up an online skill test the next week. This had a speed test, math test, programming type questions, and then an actual programming part. The programming part is impossible unless you've taken a few programming classes (I only had one from 3 years ago) but I was told that it doesn't matter if it's complete or not it's more about the thinking process. This is last week and am waiting to hear back now.

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at Epic Systems Corporation in February 2015.

    Interview Details

    The process consisted of a phone interview, a skills assessment proctored online via webcam, and a day of on-site interviews. The skills assessment was not too difficult overall, if long. Also, there were only two actual on-site interviews; the rest of the time was spent being shown around Epic's campus, taken to meals, etc.

    I applied through an employee referral – interviewed at Epic Systems Corporation.

    Interview Details

    employee referral submitted my resume to a recruiter, who then asked me to fill out an online application. I was then offered a phone interview, which for the most part was informational but did have a couple of "where do you see yourself in five years", "what are you looking for in a company" type questions. I was just recently accepted to the next step, which will be a skills test. If I do well enough on that, I will hopefully be offered an on-site interview, which should be the final step in the process.

    Application Details

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

    Interview Details

    I applied through campus recruiting and filled out a very brief application at a career fair. A week later they emailed me about a 30 minute phone interview (which lasted 45 min). It was mostly him understanding my motivations for applying to this job and asking some brief questions about my educational background. 2 days after this they sent me the technical examination consisting of 4 sections. The math and logic sections were fairly straightforward. My programming section wasn't the best. I wrote some pretty inefficient code... but I suppose Epic was less pessimistic about my performance than I was. A week later they invited me to dinner and an onsite interview. The interview there was not technical at all. Questions asked were either personal or involved time management. Everyone was dressed very casually except a couple interviewees that stuck out quite a bit.

    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 1+ weekinterviewed at Epic Systems Corporation.

    Interview Details

    Referred by a current employee to apply for the position. Received an email from HR within 24 hours of my submitted application looking to schedule a brief phone interview. Confirmed availability and had a 30 minute phone interview with a current employee in the Technical Services field. Interviewer asked questions regarding my education and professional experience as well as some standard interview questions (Why do you want to work for Epic? Where do you see yourself in 5 years?). Overall, very easy-going conversation and seemed more like a phone screening than anything. I was told to expect information from the original HR contact about completing upcoming assessment and personality tests. Received email within two days of the phone interview about when and how to take tests. The interviewer explained that once the tests are complete, the final step in the interview process (if they decide to move me forward) will be an all day, on-site interview on the company's campus.

    Currently, the tests have been scheduled but have not yet been completed.

    I applied through college or university. The process took 5 weeksinterviewed at Epic Systems Corporation.

    Interview Details

    Applied through university recruiting. Within a couple weeks was contacted for a phone interview. This was very informational, conversational, and I've heard they (like most companies) are mostly interested in the questions you ask them and that you demonstrate legitimate interest. Within a few days following the phone interview, was asked to take a skills assessment. It took nearly 3 hours, so not my favorite, but it was problem solving in the area that I like so it wasn't terrible. A few days after I took the skills assessment I was invited on site. My onsite interview lasted from about 10 til 2. It was mostly fun stuff, with a technical case study interview thing and an HR wrap-up/interview. The campus was beautiful, the employees were friendly, the food was fabulous.

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at Epic Systems Corporation in December 2014.

    Interview Details

    After submitting an online application, I was contacted for a phone interview with one of their current TS employees. The purpose seemed to be mostly to tell me about the job rather than to evaluate me as a candidate. Then there were the online tests--the proctoring system is annoying, but the tests were not too hard. After that, they flew me out to Madison for a day of interviews -- there was a case study, an HR interview, a few tours of their campus, some presentations, etc. When they say dress casually, they mean it. I wore jeans and still got an offer.
