Project Manager/Implementation Consultant Interview

Anonymous Interview Candidate
Anonymous Interview Candidate
Application Details

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

Interview Details

I applied on their website by filling out a basic information form and uploading my resumé. I was contacted two days later to schedule a Skills Assessment test and a phone call with a current employee. I scheduled the Skills Assessment test for the 21st of December and the phone call for the 22nd of December, very soon after I received the initial email (17th of December) asking me to schedule all of this. The Skills Assessment test was tricky and graded for time and accuracy (all of the questions can be found on Glassdoor if you look hard enough, which I didn't take full advantage of). The phone interview went fine for me, my interviewer being very personable and helpful in answering my questions about Epic, etc. I received an email on the 5th of January (today, not even 30 minutes ago) stating that they had decided to proceed with other applicants.

My advice: Put all of your marbles into the Skills Assessment. The phone interview is a very, very insignificant part of the first-round process. Make sure you do your research on Glassdoor before you take the Skills Assessment test. Almost every question on the Skills Assessment can be found on this site.

About me: 3.6 Arabic major from Dartmouth College. Involved in medical research, a member of Varsity Crew and other extracurriculars.

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

    Interview Details

    Initial Contact: I met a recruiter at a campus career fair. Then, I got invited to do a phone interview that was really straightforward and not difficult. In the week after my phone interview I did a comprehensive skills and IQ test. This evaluation was proctored through the computer and much too lengthy (about 3-4 hours).

    The first step is taking online assesements. There is one that is purely behavioral and the other is divided into four parts. One tests speed, another English, Math skills and finally one tests how quickly you learn new concepts. Then there is a phone interview that is pretty easy. They just ask some behavioral questions.
    The second interview is in person and at the company headquarters. That is all day. You go through different interviews with different people. Have to answer how you would solve problems in a specific case study and have to give a ten minute presentation on a topic of your choice.

    Application Details

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

    Interview Details

    Phone Interview was easy and basic. However, instead of an HR rep, it was someone who had the position I was applying for. He was NOT helpful in the slightest, all of my questions went unanswered because he wasn't "privy" to any HR information. They also focus a lot on GPA. The tests that they give you were unnecessarily difficult, and very creepily proctored. They stopped my test multiple times because my dog was making noise and they wanted to be sure no one was in the room helping me cheat. Seriously though, those tests were INSANELY stressful. Binary, and software coding questions even though I was not applying for nor have I had ANY experience in software engineering. Very intense, very stressful.

    After submitting my resume I took a personality test and a different exam and a phone interview. I would recommend taking a basic programming class for the exam because I found it difficult without any programming experience.

    Applied online, was contacted a few days later to schedule a phone interview, and non-technical assessment, and to take a Rembrant personality test. Non technical assessment was done via monitoring software, and contained 4 parts, evaluated on speed and accuracy. Phone interview was 30 minutes in length and relatively informal.

    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 Details

    I applied through my university's career database. I received an email back saying that they had looked at my resume and wanted me to take a personality profile, skills assessment test, and conduct a phone interview. I took both tests within a few days of receiving the email and had my phone interview a week after the initial email. The assessment test wasn't bad. The math, verbal, and logic were all similar to SAT sections. The hardest part was the programming which I thought I did horribly on. The phone interview was very relaxed and was mostly softball questions (more of a conversation than an interrogation). They told me they'd get back to me in under two weeks and the next day emailed me asking me to come out for an onsite interview. I haven't gone yet but will update what the onsite was like.

    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

    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
