Technical Services Problem-Solver Interview

Anonymous Interview Candidate

Application Details

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.

    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 5 weeksinterviewed at Epic Systems Corporation in December 2014.

    Interview Details

    I received an email from a recruiter telling me I should look at this position. I did and then sent in my resume. Heard back pretty soon afterwards to set up a phone interview. Super chill phone interview. More of a get to know you than anything else. Then I heard back (again, pretty quickly), to take a skill assessment tests. It was pretty intense. I hated the timed part. And the CS assessment was pretty intense and I've programed before! They emailed me a little later for the on-site interview. It was pretty great. The food and the campus is pretty spectacular. Make sure you're nice, engaged and ask lots of questions! I'm pretty sure every one you meet fills out an assessment of you, so be on top of it all day. I'm waiting to hear back and its been a week.

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 4 weeksinterviewed at Epic Systems Corporation in December 2014.

    Interview Details

    I was contacted by a recruiter, then submitted a formal application. Then the first step was to do the initial phone interview (I am not from WI). Next steps included waiting to hear from the recruiter. If you made it past the first step then you take a technical assessment either at a test location or by computer (more recently). The final step includes going to Madison, WI for a day and meeting with Epic employers and touring the campus.

    Interview Details

    Talked to some reps at a university career fair, and applied for the position based on my conversation with them. After an initial phone interview, I had to take a skills exam that was about 2.5 hours long. I was later asked to interview on-site and it really didn't feel like an interview at all, but I thoroughly enjoyed my visit!

    I applied online – interviewed at Epic Systems Corporation in August 2014.

    Interview Details

    Applied online and was contacted for a phone interview a week later. Phone interview went really well and was asked to answer the candidate profile questions and take a skills test. While taking the skills test, I realized that I wasn't the type of person who wanted to sit in front of a computer and program all day for 40-60 hours/week. Was told later that they were pursuing other candidates.

    I applied online. The process took 6 weeksinterviewed at Epic Systems Corporation.

    Interview Details

    Their process was quite thorough with a personality test as well as a skills test online. The interview on site included another skills test, a presentation, a one on one interview and then a couple get-to-know-you interviews with a couple applicants (for different jobs). The HR team gets back fairly fast regarding any questions. My biggest concern was the work-life balance, which all of the interviewers danced around.

    Interview Questions
    • There were a couple brain teasers involved in the skills test. Some interview reviews list them.   Answer Question
    Negotiation Details
    There was no negotiation. Their offer was "[their] best possible offer".
