    Project Manager/Implementation Consultant Interview

    Interview Details

    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.

    Interview Details

    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.

    Project Manager/Implementation Consultant Interview

    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

    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Epic Systems Corporation in November 2014.

    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.

    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.
