Project Manager/Implementation Consultant Interview

Application Details

I applied online – interviewed at Epic Systems Corporation.

Interview Details

I applied online for a PM role about a year ago. I was quickly contacted for a phone interview. The phone interview was pretty standard, took about 20 minutes, and just seemed to be about getting a feel for who I was and what my goals were. It was a long time ago and I don't remember the questions.

After that, I was asked to take a skills assessment test. As I had no prior coding experience, I found it extremely difficult. I didn't think I did well. Apparently I didn't, because I was emailed about a week after saying that Epic decided to move forward with other candidates.

About six months after that when it was all but forgotten, I got an email from Epic. I am not sure what was going on behind the scenes (maybe a lot of growth?), but they said that more positions had opened up, and they wanted to move forward with the process for an an on-site interview.

A few months after that I was finally able to attend (I was living abroad at the time). The interview was just as everyone else has described it. A long day, being shuffled from place to place, but overall I really enjoyed it. I applied for two different positions (PM and Technical Writer) so I got to talk to many different people and learn a lot about Epic. There were no "trick" questions in my experience, however I did spend time on Glassdoor reading interview questions and preparing answers. Do this and you will be golden!

The case studies were a bit difficult, but also intuitive and interesting at the same time. Everyone was very nice and helpful. Overall, it was some of the most fun I have had interviewing.

The wrap-up at the end of the day deals with logistical questions but also has some curve-ball real questions, so be ready for that. The most difficult part of the day was probably the fact that I had to take a two-hour writing test last, after I had been interviewing since for six hours prior. That was a little draining.

Unfortunately I didn't get to go to dinner the night before because my flight was delayed and got in late, but the hotel staff was very nice and helpful. Make sure you save all of your receipts for transport, parking and food because Epic will reimburse you. I didn't know this until after so unfortunately I hadn't saved my receipts which was a bummer, because with baggage and everything at the airport it got a bit expensive.

I thought my interview went very well and I left feeling extremely confident. I was offered a job as a Technical Writer after a little over two weeks. At this point I have not accepted or declined.

    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter – interviewed at Epic Systems Corporation.

    Interview Details

    Submitted my resume after a recruiter contacted me. A few days later I was asked to schedule a 30 minute phone interview and complete a skills assessment and Rembrandt Profile. The skills assessment was interesting, to say the least. It had four sections: math, grammar, programming, and a 2-minute timed test. It was proctored online via webcam which made it a little awkward. The fake programming part was the hardest for sure. Don't forget you can use a calculator! I made that mistake for the 2-minute part. Phone interview was pretty chill, but I was really nervous so I don't know how it went. I'm still waiting to hear back about whether I will move on. HR emailed me the day after my phone call and said it would take about 1 to 2 weeks.

    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took 4 weeksinterviewed at Epic Systems Corporation in February 2015.

    Interview Details

    A recruiter reached out to me the day after I applied and asked me to schedule a phone interview. Phone interview was simple and basic questions that you can find here on Glassdoor. They then asked me to take an online exam and later I received an email saying they have moved on. The online test was very tedious and time consuming. If you need help with that, google questions for the test and that kind of helped but I did not use it as I assumed that it wouldn't help. I did not like the fact that the ProctorU software was installed on my computer and it made me feel unsafe. Try using a public computer for this test.

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

    Interview Details

    First round - brief phone interview - basic questions to get a feel for your interest/skills. Second round - flew out to Verona, WI - ended up interviewing and interacting with at least 7-8 different employees in different roles (not just role I was applying for) which was a good way to get a feel for the company. Everyone was extremely pleasant and eager to help even though I was only one of about 15 interviewees. Day was demanding and long but seemed to fly by as you are moved quickly to different areas of the building and different interviews.

    Interview Details

    Throughout the process, HR was very good at informing me of my status in a timely matter. I submitted my resume online for project management and heard back in a few days. They set up a phone interview which was pretty standard where we talked about my background, Epic, the positions, and I was able to ask a few questions.

    I took the skills test a few days later and, because I'm from the area, was able to interview on site within the week. Epic flies in applicants from out of town and puts them up in downtown hotels. I drove to the interview where we had breakfast and learned about the software. Throughout the day, you speak one-on-one with many employees and in small groups. There are two more formal interviews, a case study, and a presentation throughout the day. Epic even provides a free lunch-- we even splurged on gelato!

    I heard back from my HR rep a week later.

    Application Details

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

    Interview Details

    I initially applied for TS and had a phone interview with a current employee in TS -- just going over your resume and getting a better feel for you as an applicant; very informal. I then took the online assessment, which I thought I did half-way decent on. Within a week I received an email saying that they were moving forward with applicants for the TS role, but said they thought I'd be a good fit for Quality Assurance. So I put in an application for quality assurance and within a week or two received an email saying that I'd been invited on campus for an interview and that they'd like me to hear about Project Manager -- no other assessment or phone interview was required before receiving this email. A travel agency booked all my travel arrangements and I signed up to have dinner with an Epic employee the night before the interview. However my flight was delayed in Chicago coming into Madison so I ended up missing dinner...The day of the interview was very relaxed. I was applying for both QA and PM on the same day, and my interview itinerary split times between meeting with QA and PM workers. First thing was an overview of the company and a brief introduction to the software. This was followed by a position overview with a current PM -- a brief description of the position and their day-to-day responsibilities. After lunch I gave my 10 minute presentation to a three Epic employees. Be sure to choose a topic that you're naturally interested and knowledgeable in. Following a quick 10-minute case study with a PM (time-management/client interaction based) I had a quick 15-minute wrap up interview with an HR employee. Overall the day was fairly informal, and feel free to dress casually as you won't be judged on your appearance.

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at Epic Systems Corporation.

    The process was relatively intense. The phone interview was simple and consisted of talking with a current PM about their job and why I was interested in working with Epic. The assessment test was long (3+ hours) but not incredibly difficult. The onsite interview consisted of beig shuffled around to different people in different positions. There were two interviews, a case study, and a presentiaton to current PMs.

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Epic Systems Corporation in March 2012.

    Interview Details

    The interview process consists of a group interview where you review situations, several one on one interviews with current employees and some tests. The tests cover basic english skills, logic puzzles and a programming test that no one passes. The one on one interviews are a great place to learn what the company does. The difficulty is a bit high because the interview lasts for a good part of the day.

    First you submit your resume, transcript, and the likes. If you pass this round Epic will reach out to you to take a Rembrandt Profile test as well as a skills assessment over Proctor U. Neither are difficult. Then you will have a phone interview with a current Project Manager, which is super laidback. You go through your resume and talk about why you are a good fit for the position and the company. Then, if selected, you will have an on campus. Haven't had the on campus yet!

    Interview Details

    Contacted by Epic after submitting application. Asked to set up a phone interview and complete the assessment- I don't think I did so well on the programming part. The phone interview was very straightforward- no tricky questions. After completing both was told they were moving on with other candidates but recommended that I apply for Quality Assurance position, which I did. I was then contacted about an on-site interview, which I have next week.
