Project Manager/Implementation Consultant Interview

Interview Details

The initial interview is with a current Project Manager at Epic. The interview consists of behavioral questions, simple "get to know you questions," and the current project manager discussing more specific details about the job. The interview is very laid back. The second part of the interview consists of taking four online tests. These include a math section, and english section, a "speed" section (answer as many questions as you can in 2 minutes), and a basic computer programming section. Many of the other descriptions on here discuss the test in length. Look at those. I am still waiting to see if I go to the second round.

    Application Details

    I applied online – interviewed at Epic Systems Corporation.

    Interview Details

    I first discovered Epic through my university's career services page, but the listing suggested I apply through the Epic website itself for faster consideration. I applied on a Saturday night and was contacted by a member of HR Monday evening. The email contained instructions for setting up a phone interview, Rembrandt personality test, and a skills assessment, suggesting that all three be completed within 5 days.

    Rembrandt personality test: (approximately 20-30 minutes) contained one question type that listed a statement where you were then asked to rate whether you agreed, somewhat agreed, somewhat disagreed, or disagreed with it; another question type listed a series of four varying statements and you had to rank all of them from most similar-least similar to you.

    Phone interview: (approximately 20-30 minutes) I was paired with a current PM. We first went over some logistical questions where she asked me to confirm some of my credentials, whether I would be willing to relocate, if I started college immediately out of high school... We then went on to questions concerning my interests and experiences. I was asked how I heard about the job, what I liked most about the job, where I saw myself in 5 years, and we also went in depth into 2 of my experiences (what was the most fulfilling part and most challenging part). This was a very quick interview with all of the remaining time left for me to ask questions.

    Skills assessment: (approximately 2 hours) The skills assessment is administered through a third party called ProctorU. The entire process only took about 2 hours for me, with the first half hour just waiting for my proctor to appear and set everything up on my computer. There is a 2 minute speed capacity test to start where you try to answer as many of the 10 questions as possible. The verbal section contained some logic problems, grammar corrections, and analogies. The math section contained brain teasers and logic problems. Finally, the programming section. A lot of the reviews online suggested that I would actually have to pseudocode, but instead the section consisted of multiple choice questions that progressively built on each other. Each question would give a brief overview of some programming concept and then ask that you apply it (though the applications were much more difficult than the examples they provided). I agree that previous experience would be beneficial during this section, but it progresses in such a way that even someone with zero experience could pick up the pseudocode language and be able to think through the problems. I definitely had some trouble at the end, but a lot of it was second guessing myself.

    I haven't heard back from HR yet on my next step, but it has been a very streamlined process thus far and not as intimidating as you would expect!

    Interview Questions
    • Honestly the grammar section made me second guess myself the most. It was very similar to the SAT/ACT though, so if you are feeling rusty like me practice questions would be helpful.   Answer Question

    I applied through a recruiter – interviewed at Epic Systems Corporation in January 2015.

    Interview Details

    I was contacted by a recruiter through university career center, and she asked me if I am interested in this position, I could apply online. So I submited my resume and transcrip to their career website. A few days later, they emailed me to schedule a phone interview. He, HR, just went over my resume and confirm with me about the information I submitted. I remember that he did not ask me any behavioral questions. He did ask me about the expected salary. I am still waiting for the phone interview result.

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2+ monthsinterviewed at Epic Systems Corporation.

    Interview Details

    The online assessment everyone takes should take 2 hours maximum. I don't think it's nearly as hard as some people in other forums might say. They just want to make sure you have a decent grasp of grammar, logic, and basic math skills. The coding component probably tests how well you learn new skills, in my opinion. There was a 30 minute phone call that was very basic ie walk me through your resume, what do you see yourself doing in 5 years, etc. A current PM will interview you. Mine was very friendly and even chatted with me at the end a bit about Madison. The on- site interview includes a short 10 minute presentation (to make sure you can talk to people), a non-technical case, a fit interview with a current PM, and another interview by your recruiter. You get to eat lunch with current workers and take a tour of the campus (which is awesome). The night before a PM will take a group of interviewees out to dinner in Madison. It's a great chance to ask any questions you have about Epic, the role, or Madison.

    Not much room for negotiation. They are a big company and don't need to really go out of their way to attract top talent (it comes to them). It might be different if you're a coding wizard though.

    Phone interview is very easy. Assessment is very difficult and you have no way of preparing for it. Ultimately the second interview is based on how well you do in the assessment.

    I applied through college or university. The process took 6 weeksinterviewed at Epic Systems Corporation.

    Interview Details

    Epic's interview process is long but not necessarily hard if you know what to expect. Doing my research on Glassdoor paid off, so I hope this helps someone else!

    The best advice I can give for the whole process is to talk a lot and ask questions - real questions about things that concern you (that high turnover though) are okay, because it shows you're seriously considering the position. Be sincerely engaged. Also, go out to dinner with the Epic employee the night before. Mine answered my questions candidly and was very helpful.

    I submitted my resume to a recruiter at my college career fair and filled out an online form. A couple days later, I had an email to set up a phone interview for the following week and took a brief personality quiz. After that, it was a skill assessment in logic, reasoning, and programming. After that, they flew me in for an on-site interview. Everyone was extremely friendly and available through the whole process.

    Phone interview: Super chill, 20-30 min. Your interviewer will walk through your resume with some questions about your experience. Be ready to answer why are you interested in working at Epic and/or in the healthcare tech industry. Most importantly, half the interview is set aside for YOU to ask questions. Take advantage of this and show your interest!

    Skill assessment: Not chill, 3 hours. Definitely the rough part of the interview process. Honestly, you'll either be good at it or you won't, so don't stress out about studying. The programming test seems crazy hard, but I have 0 experience in programming and passed. They mostly want to see if you can pick up new things quickly and think logically. Not everyone's cup of tea.

    On-site: 1) 10 min presentation over literally anything. I choice a topic that was not technical or business-related at all - Epic's culture is quirky, so geeing out about something interesting for 10 minutes probably worked in my favor. 2) Case study. Not at all like scary consulting case studies, more ethical and customer-service related. If you have common sense, you'll be fine. 3) PM interview. Questions about your leadership style, work ethic, dealing with difficult people, and giving/receiving criticism. 4) HR interview. You'll bring a list of 3 references - be prepared to give a good and bad thing they would each say about you. More behavioral questions. They'll ask for salary expectations. 5) Lunch and a tour - not a formal interview, but stay friendly and interact with your group.

    Interview Details

    Once you apply online, your interview is the next step which usually comes within a week or two after they review your credentials. The usual interview questions about your resume, how much of a people person you are, how you communicate and lead. However, the exam sorts out all the possible candidates obviously. Very intimidating online exam...

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

    Interview Details

    Went through campus recruiting. Submitted my resume and transcript through their website portal. I was emailed within a couple of days of submission requesting a phone interview and also was asked to take their online assessment. The phone interview was simply behavioral and was not stressful. The online assessment was a bit difficult and the live proctoring via webcam added pressure.

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

    Interview Details

    I applied at a college career fair. I was contacted to schedule a phone interview and a skills assessment test. I did the phone interview first. It was very straight forward - questions about my resume and any questions I might have about the company, position, and location. The women I interviewed with was very nice, and made a great impression on me concerning the company. Next I was asked to complete the skills assessment test. It is time consuming and somewhat difficult, but not nearly as difficult as I had heard it would be. There really is no way to prepare for it, just expect basic grammar, math, and logic questions. Also there is a section on pseudo code.

    Interview Questions
    • The skills assessment exam was the most difficult part. The pseudo code section can be difficult if you have no coding experience.   Answer Question
