Project Manager/Implementation Consultant Interview

Anonymous Interview Candidate

Application Details

I applied online. The process took 2 months - interviewed at Epic Systems Corporation.

Interview Details

I submitted an online application via their website, provided info about my experience, education, test scores etc. After this, I had an initial phone interview with basic questions about my interests, background, etc. I was asked to take a personality test and an online skills assessment test with analytical/math/problem solving components, and this was then followed up by a writing skills test. The tests were fairly time consuming, but not particularly difficult. Shortly after completing the tests, I was flown to Madison for a day of in-person interviews which included general info sessions, meetings with people in implementation and HR, a brief case related to project management, and a short presentation I had to give to a panel of three people (i was given advance notice to prepare my presentation). About a week after my interview, I received an offer. The in-person interview day also included a lot of info about working at Epic, chances to ask questions, etc. I think they were pretty honest about the job requirements during the process (i.e. requiring a lot of travel, number of hours per week and so on).

I marked the interview process as difficult on here because it's pretty intensive/time consuming, but I wouldn't necessarily call it challenging beyond that. I ended up declining my offer, but from what I've heard Epic hires relatively young/inexperienced people and gives them the chance to take on a lot of responsibility, so they're probably pretty serious about getting a sense of fit before hiring. They do a good job showing you around and answering questions, too, so it goes both ways.

Interview Questions
  • Nothing truly unexpected, skills assessment could be challenging if you're not strong in math, presentation could be unnerving if you're not used to presenting, but I didn't have too many problems with either.   Answer Question
Reasons for Declining

I'm not originally from the U.S. and chose to return to my home country.

    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral - interviewed at Epic Systems Corporation in May 2014.

    Interview Details

    The interview process was fairly straightforward. After a few phone interviews and an online assessment, Epic flew me out to their headquarters in Verona, Wisconsin for a day of 5-6 interviews. It was an enlightening process that permitted a lot of insight into their corporate culture. I found their company slightly odd - they continue to strive for a small, start-up feel despite the fact that they presently employ thousands. Additionally, I got a non-conformist, quirky vibe from many of the employees, with odd attire and strange piercings. If a small, hippy liberal arts college in the Northeast had a corporate baby, it would be Epic.

    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 3 weeks - interviewed at Epic Systems Corporation in October 2013.

    Interview Details

    I was referred by someone internally and Epic reached out to me and asked me to complete a quick questionnaire along with my resume. After about 5 days they reached out to schedule a phone screen which had multiple easy questions. Much of the phone interview was more their explanation of the company itself. After this, I was asked to complete a personality profile. About 5-7 days following this, I was asked to take an English & basic computer programming assessment. Being a business major with 0 computer background, this didn't go well for me and I was not asked to continue. I know the next and final step would have been a strenuous in-person interview at Epic for which they fly you out.

    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 4+ weeks - interviewed at Epic Systems Corporation in July 2014.

    Interview Details

    Had resume forwarded to HR by a friend who worked there. Filled out an online application, got a phone interview, where they basically asked about my resume and other personal information to understand who I was as a person.

    Next, I took an online assessment that basically gauged my ability to learn new concepts and the speed at which I learned them. After that they invited me to an in-person interview, which was a full day of meeting with employees, doing cases, meeting with HR, etc. (All expense paid).

    Finally, waited for an offer for about two weeks. Whole process took about a month.

    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Epic Systems Corporation in August 2014.

    Interview Details

    After receiving an employee referral I submitted my resume, transcript, and personal information I was contacted the following Monday by Epic HR to let me know my application had been received. About a day later I received another email saying that I would be receiving information on scheduling a behavioral assessment, skills exam, a phone interview. That week I completed the behavioral assessment (30 min) and skills exam (2 hrs). The phone interview was conducted that Friday with a current Epic PM. I was told I would be contacted within two weeks with further instructions. After one week I received and email saying they were pursuing other people for the position. While I didn't receive an offer I appreciated the expedited interview process and prompt responses.

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks - interviewed at Epic Systems Corporation in July 2014.

    Interview Details

    After filling out the application, I was given a phone interview one week later. The interview lasted for about 30 minutes, during which they explained to me about the position, it's responsibilities, and what is required from me to be a successful candidate. Nothing new from what is mentioned on their website. The guy on the phone asked for my GPA, what type of work environment I'd prefer to work in, where I see myself within five years from now, why I chose epic, where I heard about epic, and -as far as I remember- what other positions I would be interested in.
    After the interview there was the test. It was one week after the interview. It was a bit challenging especially since I have a poor mathematics/programming background so I struggled a bit at the math questions.

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

    Interview Details

    Initial phone screen was a basic walk-through of my resume, with particular emphasis on my thoughts about how EHR and Epic fit into the wider healthcare spectrum. Special attention seemed to be paid to roles which emphasized direct client interaction. Afterwards, the next round is entirely comprised of a skills assessment and behavioral questionnaires.

    Interview Details

    There was a phone interview a few weeks after applying online. Then an online assessment test measuring speed, critical thinking, ability to learn new material, and grammar. The next step was flying out to the Madison, WI headquarters. The night before the interview you have the option to go out to dinner with two employees and a group of candidates. The company will also put you up in a nice hotel for the night. The next morning, you will take a taxi to the facility and start a day long interview process. Some parts are done in groups such as the system demo, case study, tour, and lunch. There are two interviews done alone, and you have to give a 10 min presentation to a few employees on any topic of your choice.
