    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Epic Systems Corporation in June 2015.

    Interview

    The process was fairly straightforward. I was referred by someone who works there, applied, and heard from HR shortly thereafter. I scheduled a short phone interview with someone in the position, which consisted of easy questions like how much are you willing to travel, why this position, etc. I then took their online exams and personality assessments. For the most part I thought they were okay, but the programming section was difficult for me (no programming background). I must not have done well, because they emailed me after receiving the results saying they were pursuing other candidates. Fairly frustrating because my phone interview was great and the young lady I spoke to liked me enough to say she would gladly recruit me to her team once I got there. I would recommend going fairly quickly through the tests. They are not "timed" but there is a generous time limit. I took a lot of it and maybe that was my downfall. Good luck!

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

    Interview

    I met an Epic recruiter at my university's career fair and gave her my resume. A few days later, I received an email saying that they wanted to set up a phone interview. The phone interview was pretty straightforward - I was asked to explain my background, my interest in Epic, answer the ole "where do you see yourself in 5 years" question, and given plenty of opportunity to ask questions about the job and Epic in general. I had prepared quite thoroughly by researching Epic and developing a list of back-up questions to ask, so my interviewer and I talked for a long time. I'd recommend also asking questions throughout the interview if you think of them, so they know that you're actually listening while they're talking and can engage them in conversation, not just ask prepared questions. About a week later I took the infamous Epic skills test.The math section is mainly composed of word problems/tricky "math riddles". There is a writing section which asks you to correct grammar mistakes (fairly easy, this is something you could study for), a logic section (analogies and puzzles - take your TIME to think through the puzzles and don't panic!) and a programming section where they teach you some basic concepts of a language and you answer questions based on their mini-lessons/examples. My understanding is that if you have programming experience, the section should be a breeze. I have zero programming experience, and the questions got increasingly more difficult, so by the end I was really struggling to come up with answers.... but I guess I did well enough to pass. A few days after I took my skills test, I received an email saying that they wanted to bring me in for the on-site (final round) interviews. They flew me into Madison and I had dinner with a couple of Epic employees along with 4 or 5 other job candidates the night before my interview. This was a fun, informal time to get to know some people from Epic and ask them pretty much anything we wanted to know about the company and the area. The on-site interviews: First I attended a presentation where Epic software was introduced. I then had a one-on-one session with a current PM/IC who talked to me specifically about what the position and answered my questions about it (this was not an interview.) Next I had a case study. They gave me and another candidate a case to read, and after what felt like only 10 minutes (but was probably longer than that) the interviewer came back into room to ask us questions about the case. She asked the same questions to both of us, and we switched off giving her our answers. I don't think the case questions were difficult; they just required some common sense and decisiveness. It somehow morphed into a full-blown behavioral interview, and she asked lots of "give me an example of a time that you....." questions. After the case study was over, I immediately went to another behavioral interview. This was non-stop behavioral questions for about half an hour and it was somewhat exhausting, especially since it was right after the case study. I highly recommend preparing for this by thinking of your major accomplishments and difficult situations at work/school/activities that you've tackled. Afterwards, I went to give my 10-minute presentation that I'd prepared. There were just a few Epic employees as my "audience" and they were very friendly. Make sure to pick a topic that you find enjoyable and comfortable to talk about. Have fun with it! After lunch we were given a partial tour of campus, and then I had my HR interview (last interview of the day.) This included a few more behavioral questions, and some questions about whether or not I'd be willing to re-locate, the salary I was expecting, etc. I received a call one week later from my HR person with an offer.

    Reasons for Declining

    I ultimately declined the offer because of location - I received an offer from a firm closer to where I live.

    Interview

    The initial test is pretty difficult. You have to make sure to do well on this and your pone interview. You are then invited to Madison to interview on site. There is a day full of interviews and you leave wondering if you did well enough. I haven't found out yet and it's been a week today.

    Quick turnaround, fair, good hospitality, easy case study. They give you a tour of the campus which they are very proud of. They have a rotation you follow to get interviewed by different positions throughout the company. My interview ended with a short discussion with an HR representative who laid out expectations and told me about the salary and time frame.

    Interview

    Sent in an application and resume online. I was asked to complete a logic test and personality test online before the phone interview. Make sure you take the logic test in a quiet place but its basic math and verbal reasoning stuff. There is a programming part that's just to see how you learn something new basically. The phone interview was pretty easy. Just why you want to work there? what experience you have etc. Pretty basic. Next is the onsite interview which i have later this week.

    Application

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

    Interview

    First, I was contacted via e-mail to set up a phone interview with a current employee in that position. I initially was recruited for a Technical position. They asked about my resume, my interest in this role, how I handle success/failure, why I am interested in Epic, etc. It was a very simple interview and lasted around 20-30 minutes. Make sure to ask the person questions about their role. Next, I was set up to take their online test and personality test. There are 4 sections (Math, Verbal, Programming, and a time Standard section with a mix of all 3). You just need scratch paper and a calculator. I do poorly on standardized tests, so I'm surprised they continued the process but they had me apply for a different role: Project Manager. Lastly, I was invited to the on-site interview. They put you up in a nice hotel with other Epic candidates. I went to dinner the night before with Epic employees who were friendly and very excited to talk about their job and Madison. The following day, we had our interviews. The on-site interview takes up your entire day. Every minute is planned and extremely organized, there's always a different person meeting and/or interviewing you. You'll have an interview with someone in the current position, a case study, a presentation, lunch, a tour of the campus, and a final interview with HR. For the presentation, you should pick a topic you're really interested in, it'll be easier to answer questions. Practice beforehand, they're really judging your performance and ability to speak in public. Throughout the day, whether it's in the case study or the final interview with HR, make sure you emphasize communication, team work, flexibility, and being goal-oriented. Make sure you're dressed in business casual at least! For men, I recommend khakis, slacks, a nice button down dress shirt or polo. No tie necessary. For women, I recommend business causal slacks, a nice skirt and sweater, a dress. If you dress up professional, you will really stick out. Their attire is always causal and it's important they can see you fitting in there. Also, do not feel intimidated by the other Epic candidates. There will be at least 20 of you interviewing throughout the day. They are always hiring multiples for a position. It's great to make a friend and have someone to talk about the experience with, also it's good for the employees to see you feeling comfortable at Epic.

    I applied through college or university – interviewed at Epic Systems Corporation.

    Interview

    Pretty fast turn around. First a personality test. Then a phone interview to go over your resume and company. Then a long skills assessment involving math, grammar, coding and logic. Not too bad but do some research before. Then onsite interview. There are a few case studies, personality questions from HR, situational questions from someone in your position, tour of campus and an overview of the company and software.
