I applied online – interviewed at Epic Systems Corporation.

Interview

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.

    Interview

    The phone interview was very easy. As everyone has mentioned, you simply have a phone conversation with a current project manager. We went through my resume, and was given the details about the job, as well as the application process. It lasted about a half an hour.

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at Epic Systems Corporation (Verona, WI).

    Interview

    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.

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

    Interview

    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.

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Epic Systems Corporation (Madison, WI) in March 2015.

    Interview

    A recruiter had reached out on LinkedIn and I applied online. About a day or so later they asked for my availability for a phone interview. When I got my phone interview confirmation, I was prompted to take an online assessment through ProctorU. I made the mistake of thinking I could get it done right then and there rather than scheduling the assessment a couple of days out. ZERO preperation: MAKE SURE YOU HAVE SCRATCH AND A CALCULATOR. The assessment was through a third party, took about an hour or so and was pretty tough. With zero background knowledge on coding, I found it extremely difficult, but there were four sections and that was only one so it hopefully the others will even out the score. From there, I had another Rembrandt profile to complete which was pretty fun but took about 30 minutes. I had my phone interview a couple of days later, pretty standard and straight forward. First fifteen minutes a junior project manager asked questions and then the last fifteen is then talking about the role, what it's like to live in Madison, WI and I had like 30 seconds to ask a question.

    Interview

    Talked to a recruiter at a university Career Fair and was contact via email a few days later. I was offered a first interview (more like a phone screen) to chat with a current employee about myself and why I was interested in Epic. It was extremely laid back and conversational. They told me a little bit about the culture at Epic and more about the specific job.

    Interview

    It was essentially an orientation to the company. Most of the day was spent allowing you to ask any and all questions about the company while giving you the rundown of the operations there. Spread out throughtout the day, they ask you to complete exercises that help them see your problem solving processes. Then they ask you to prepare a small presentation about just about anything.

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 5+ monthsinterviewed at Epic Systems Corporation in March 2015.

    Interview

    I originally applied of October, and went through all the typical processes starting with the initial resume drop, filled out the form online, and then was invited to take the computer testing that everyone talks about. About a week and a half after, I was notified that I was no longer being considered for the position.

    Fast forward about four and a half months, and I get an email inviting me to "reconnect with Epic" and inviting me to continue my interview again. A week later- I was onsite for a full day interview both interviewing for Project Manager and Quality Assurance. I had a wonderful time talking to people, and they really make you feel comfortable. It was my understanding that if you make it to the onsite interview- they're quite interested. Don't feel uncomfortable or intimidated with the group interview-aspect, because there are plenty of roles to fill; you're not competing! Also- for PM/IS- make sure you present on something you're 1- knowledgeable about, 2- passionate about, and 3-able to field questions. Some topics on my day include Irish Dance and Wine Tasting.

    Less than a week later (interviewed on a Friday and got the call on Wednesday), I was offered a PM/IS job.

    Application

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

    Interview

    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.

    No negotiation -- what I listed as my expected salary is what I was offered.

    Interview

    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.
