The process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Epic Systems Corporation in November 2011.

Interview Details – Most reviews already covered the relatively intense interview process. There is an intense computer-programming test, among other tests including English grammar, etc. If you have no computer programming experience, this test will be extremely difficult. The interview process is very intense and tiring, probably representative of the job itself. It is well organized though and you meet many people working there, and get to have lunch with an employee.

Interview Question – Tell us about a situation where you faced someone doing something you thought was wrong, and what you did about it.   Answer Question

I applied online and the process took 8 weeks - interviewed at Epic Systems Corporation in April 2011.

Interview Details – Very long process that starts after application submission. Then phone screen and personality and IQ assessment. If you pass the assessment then you go to Epic for a 1:1 interview, tour of complex, lunch, case study, presentation, and more assessments. Typically takes 6-8 weeks.

I applied online and the process took 4+ weeks - interviewed at Epic Systems Corporation in December 2012.

Interview Details – They flew me out to interview in Madison, WI and I had a lovely weekend. The interview day was jam-packed and high-paced. I was interviewing with someone, giving presentations, or taking written tests constantly from 8:30am to 5:30pm. My perception of the people working there was just the same, friendly, great, but very fast-paced.

I applied through an employee referral and the process took 5 weeks - interviewed at Epic Systems Corporation in January 2013.

Interview Details – Applied to the company and submitted my application online. Had phone interview that was a standard HR screen; interviewer didn’t sound all that tough nor all that interested. If you have a decent enough resume, it seems like a formality. They got back to me within a week to invite me to an on campus interview in Verona. I sent them back a form with my preferred visit days, and then waited. That wait was the longest wait as far as not hearing anything, and then finally about a week after sending them that form they got back to me with a travel itinerary. I accepted, then visited Verona.

If you’re from out of town, they’ll put you up in a nice hotel downtown by the capitol, pay for your flight and cab ride to and from the company HQ. The HQ itself looks like Disneyworld (and has a slide, themed buildings, treehouse, etc.), and is mostly full of young people and former farmland that is very nice. You’ll be put through a couple HR interviews 1 on 1, a presentation with several staff audience members, and a case study discussion with a few people and a computer-based skills assessment—those are the hard parts. The rest of it consists of guided tours and basic info sessions and adds up to a long day. The HR interview is standard, the presentation is very casual, and the case study is mostly common sense. The computer-based skills assessment was fairly ordinary, but try to take it at a testing site before you get there rather than the day of the actual interview.

The work culture is very laid back in style but the job doesn’t seem to have that much upward mobility (they advertise a “flat” corporate structure). Agreed with most of their approaches towards creativity, fun, and customer service but didn’t get any indication of the long-term direction of the company no matter how many times I asked. I was interviewed by mostly veterans of the company who had been there 7+ years, but got tours from HR people a few years younger than that. Had a few older folks in the interview group, but most of your interviewees there are those with math or science backgrounds.

I applied online and the process took 3 months - interviewed at Epic Systems Corporation in February 2012.

Interview Details – Fill out an application online including submitting a resume and cover letter. Complete many forms and quizzes that are emailed to you. Have a phone interview. Have two in-person interviews - the first one includes sitting for three different quizzes plus one three-minute-twelve-question math test, and the second in-person visit includes a bunch of scenario questions where you need to give the best solution and then a ten minute presentation on whatever you want.

Interview Question – An apple costs 40 cents, a banana costs 60 cents, and grapefruit costs 80 cents. Under the same circumstances, how much does a pear cost?   View Answers (7)

I applied online - interviewed at Epic Systems Corporation in January 2012.

Interview Details – You begin by taking several personality tests online. This is a series of tests where they ask you situational questions on how you would handle certain scenarios. You then have a phone interview with someone in the position. This is basically for them to see if you are a sociable person. You then go on-site to Epic and have a full day interview. You get there around 8 and stay until around 4. During that time you will meet with several people in the company, do a presentation and take several tests where you solve math problems.

Interview Question – The most unexpected thing was doing a group interview session where you have to each answer how you would handle a certain scenario.   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – Very quick. They offer you generous pay so it doesn't take long.

I applied online and the process took 3 weeks - interviewed at Epic Systems Corporation in May 2014.

Interview Details – Phone interview was pretty basic. They just ask a little bit about your background and your experience on your resume would be a good fit, but be prepared to answer a few questions about how you found out about Epic and a what you expect to get out of it. The next step is an exam with a number of logic based math questions and a verbal section. It's very similar to the SAT/GRE. There's also a section with a fake programming language that's pretty challenging. If you do well, they'll invite you an onsite interview. I really feel they're missing out on some talented individuals by basing it all on an exam score. Onsite you take another exam, give a presentation, talk to a few people from HR and the department you applied for.

Interview Question – None really, exam was difficult though.   Answer Question
