Project Manager/Implementation Consultant Interview

Anonymous Interview Candidate in Verona, WI
Anonymous Interview Candidate in Verona, WI
Application Details

I applied online. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at Epic Systems Corporation in November 2014.

Interview Details

I have had a great experience with Epic so far. They have the hiring process down to a science, yet I still felt that the majority of people I met with actually did care that all my questions were answered and I was kept well informed. From the time I applied to the time I was flown in for an on site interview, about 3 weeks passed. I consider this very quick for such a huge company with an amazing number of applicants.

The night before the interview, there was a dinner offered with a current employee which was extremely beneficial! It made me less nervous and more well informed about Epic.

The interview day was quite long, but fairly casual. Software demo, project manager information session, project manager interview (probably the most formal of the day), presentation (very awkward- nobody made any facial expressions), site tour (the facilities are amazing, huge, and VERY impressive), lunch, Go-Live group scenario, break, HR final interview/wrap up, then driven straight to airport. Currently still waiting to hear back.

Everyone was very nice and overall the day was a great experience! Epic seems to actually care about their employees, the community, and the world around them- which I love.

P.s. Reading through MANY Glassdoor posts helped me be extremely prepared for all questions I was asked.

Interview Questions
  • What makes you most nervous: talking to 30 strangers, 6 people you've previously worked with, or the VP?   Answer Question
  • Case study: you have 3 weeks left until go-live and the hospital informed you they want to add another application and forgot to tell you. You have 30 mins to discuss and come up with options to present to the CIO.   Answer Question

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

    Interview Details

    The whole interview process was very extensive. Took the test that they require everyone to do. Don't worry too much about the Programmer part, it is crazy difficult. The test has four sections total. Give it your best shot. After the test, I had a phone interview with someone in HR. Very basic interview questions, nothing too crazy. I was given the chance to fly to Madison for an onsite interview. Very long day, you talk to several different people. Didn't get the position but would consider reapplying to their company

    Interview Details

    Applied via website. You receive a general notification advising that your resume had been received and being reviewed. Received an email in a couple days requesting to set up and schedule a phone interview. Phone interview is scheduled and coordinated via email. Had a phone interview where I talked to a current project manager. We went over my background and I was asked why I was interested in the position and what I new about Epic. The interviewer then gave an overview of the position. Next you schedule the Epic examination. Wait about 2 weeks after test results to be contacted for on-site interview

    Application Details

    I applied online – interviewed at Epic Systems Corporation in November 2014.

    Interview Details

    Applied online. Swift response requesting a telephone interview. Recruiter asked me to go over my resume/background. They asked why I chose my major, why I wanted to work for epic and where I saw myself in five years. Then they asked if I had questions. I asked this person what the greatest challenge was facing this role. They responded that there are no room for errors. I also asked what they liked best about working for epic. They said they liked the people they worked with. I was asked to complete an online proctored non technical skills assessment. This took about an hour and half. There was a timed speed section, grammar/logic, math, and a programming section. Independently of the skills section is a Rembrandt personality profile that must be completed online as well. After these were completed I was told I would hear back within 2 weeks. One week later I received an email from a recruiter stating they were considering other candidates.

    Interview Details

    So far, I've only gone through the phone interview. I applied through their website after a campus info session, about a week afterwards I got an email from HR to do a Rembrandt profile and a non technical proctored assessment. Proceeded to schedule a phone interview which was very basic, where do you see yourself in the next 5 years? and going over my resume in general. Followed by job overview and questions.

    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at Epic Systems Corporation in November 2014.

    Interview Details

    Completed an initial profile at an information session at my college. Was contacted two weeks later to schedule a phone screen. Pretty standard HR questions here. Then completed a series of online tests (these are not easy but not hard and you can't prepare for them so don't waste your time). I thought I did terribly on the tests, but they still called me for an on-site interview day. The on-site day is very long, but I actually thought it was fun. There's an HR interview, a PM interview, a case interview, a 10 minute presentation on a topic of your choice, a tour, and a lunch. It's packed, but each component is pretty useful and you get to interact with many Epic employees in the process. There's also a dinner you can go to with other interview candidates and an employee the night before your interview. Overall just be genuine, able to articulate why you want to be a part of the company, and the specific aspects of your experience that make you a good fit for the PM position.

    I applied online – interviewed at Epic Systems Corporation.

    Interview Details

    I applied via the Epic website, received an email to set up a phone interview a couple of days later. The phone interview was pretty informal, spoke with a current Project Manager about my resume and was given a chance to ask questions about the role. Follow-up for an on-site interview was a few days later. At the on-site interview, in the morning the candidate group was given a company overview and software demonstration, then we sat down with a current Project Manager to hear more about the role and ask questions. After that we interviewed 1 on 1 with a Project Manager, which entailed typical interview questions (i.e., difficult coworker, working on teams, etc.). Then we had to give a short 10-minute presentation on the topic of our choice (no powerpoint) to 3-4 Epic employees. After this was a case study interview, where we were given 10 minutes to read through a healthcare scenario and were then asked questions about resolving issues from the case. Finally, we had the HR interview (notable questions: What are your 5 greatest weaknesses, what are misconceptions people have about you upon first meeting you), and lunch/facilities tour and the day was over.

    Very professional process. Quick. Started with a phone interview and was followed by an on-site visit. Visit included many fit and technical interviews followed by a computer assessment. The entire process was very organized and clean, which was impressive given the sheer amount of interviews and information sessions you were put through in such a short period of time. Definitely one of the more personal and inviting interviews I've ever been a part of.

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at Epic Systems Corporation in October 2014.

    Interview Details

    1. Phone Interview: Do your research! When I was contacted for a phone interview, I reached out to two of my LinkedIn acquaintances working at Epic so when my interviewer asked how I heard about Epic, I really impressed him off the bat. The interview is very straightforward but be prepared to ask a lot of questions at the end about the specific position to show your interest.
    2. Skills Assessment/Personality Test: Again, I recommend that you read the reviews on here as some of the "tricky" brain teasers that could take you forever are listed on here. For the coding section, I simply wrote a list of how I would code the program and that was good enough.
    3. Onsite Interview: It was a blast! Go through the questions on Glassdoor and you'll be more than prepared. Just be yourself and have fun at their beautiful campus! If you're interviewing for PM, make your 10 minute presentation interactive and engaging.

    The interview process was a blast but I received a significantly better offer in a more desirable location that took my major into account.
