    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 daysinterviewed at Epic Systems Corporation (Madison, WI) in March 2015.

    Interview

    It was essentially an orientation to the company. Most of the day was spent allowing you to ask any and all questions about the company while giving you the rundown of the operations there. Spread out throughtout the day, they ask you to complete exercises that help them see your problem solving processes. Then they ask you to prepare a small presentation about just about anything.

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral – interviewed at Epic Systems Corporation.

    Interview

    I initially applied for TS and had a phone interview with a current employee in TS -- just going over your resume and getting a better feel for you as an applicant; very informal. I then took the online assessment, which I thought I did half-way decent on. Within a week I received an email saying that they were moving forward with applicants for the TS role, but said they thought I'd be a good fit for Quality Assurance. So I put in an application for quality assurance and within a week or two received an email saying that I'd been invited on campus for an interview and that they'd like me to hear about Project Manager -- no other assessment or phone interview was required before receiving this email. A travel agency booked all my travel arrangements and I signed up to have dinner with an Epic employee the night before the interview. However my flight was delayed in Chicago coming into Madison so I ended up missing dinner...The day of the interview was very relaxed. I was applying for both QA and PM on the same day, and my interview itinerary split times between meeting with QA and PM workers. First thing was an overview of the company and a brief introduction to the software. This was followed by a position overview with a current PM -- a brief description of the position and their day-to-day responsibilities. After lunch I gave my 10 minute presentation to a three Epic employees. Be sure to choose a topic that you're naturally interested and knowledgeable in. Following a quick 10-minute case study with a PM (time-management/client interaction based) I had a quick 15-minute wrap up interview with an HR employee. Overall the day was fairly informal, and feel free to dress casually as you won't be judged on your appearance.

    No negotiation -- what I listed as my expected salary is what I was offered.

    Interview

    Throughout the process, HR was very good at informing me of my status in a timely matter. I submitted my resume online for project management and heard back in a few days. They set up a phone interview which was pretty standard where we talked about my background, Epic, the positions, and I was able to ask a few questions.

    I took the skills test a few days later and, because I'm from the area, was able to interview on site within the week. Epic flies in applicants from out of town and puts them up in downtown hotels. I drove to the interview where we had breakfast and learned about the software. Throughout the day, you speak one-on-one with many employees and in small groups. There are two more formal interviews, a case study, and a presentation throughout the day. Epic even provides a free lunch-- we even splurged on gelato!

    I heard back from my HR rep a week later.

    Application

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

    Interview

    I sent in a very brief application after speaking to a recruiter at a job fair. I didn't think anything would come of it because the application was extremely brief but they contacted me about five days after saying they were interested in having me complete an online assessment and phone interview.

    The interview is mostly for you to familiarize yourself with what the position entails, the programming is some pretty tough stuff that starts out very simple and gets confusing quickly if you have no experience with the topic. They do teach you everything however so you don't need coding knowledge, but it would help guarantee accuracy.

     I heard that the GPA requirement for them is a 3.3 but they contacted me despite the fact that my GPA is a little lower. I'm also not a programmer so I think it might actually help if you have a more diverse skill set for the role of project manager: the person who I talked to told me that she didn't have any technical knowledge either when she applied.

    I'm still waiting for a response back but I feel fairly optimistic. The test took about two hours for me and it was proctored by a company that watched me via webcam. It was very exhausting though, but I guess that's relative and I'm sure it would be a breeze for certain people.

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at Epic Systems Corporation (Madison, WI).

    Interview

    The process was relatively intense. The phone interview was simple and consisted of talking with a current PM about their job and why I was interested in working with Epic. The assessment test was long (3+ hours) but not incredibly difficult. The onsite interview consisted of beig shuffled around to different people in different positions. There were two interviews, a case study, and a presentiaton to current PMs.

    I applied online – interviewed at Epic Systems Corporation.

    Interview

    I had to take a online proctored nontech assessment which consisted of 4 parts : speed, verbal reasoning, math, and technical. The phone interview lasted 30 min and I was asked common behavioral questions like what was your 5-year plan and why I was interested in the project manager/implementation consultant position. I am still waiting to hear back for the next step.

    Interview

    I submitted my resume and quickly received an email about scheduling a phone interview. I completed the phone interview and then was asked to partake in an online logic exam. This was tough for me personally and after taking the exam I was notified that they have moved on in the hiring process.

    Interview

    The interview process is long, but don't stress too much about it! Everyone there is extremely kind and welcoming. It took all day, a case interview, some meetings to learn about the position, and lunch too! The first few meetings were to learn about the software, and what the position entails. Then I gave 10 minute presentation, got a tour, had lunch, then had a case interview and an HR interview, then took another skills exam. Make sure to get a good night's sleep before!

    I applied through college or university. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at Epic Systems Corporation in February 2015.

    Interview

    Contacted by Epic after submitting application. Asked to set up a phone interview and complete the assessment- I don't think I did so well on the programming part. The phone interview was very straightforward- no tricky questions. After completing both was told they were moving on with other candidates but recommended that I apply for Quality Assurance position, which I did. I was then contacted about an on-site interview, which I have next week.

    Interview

    First you submit your resume, transcript, and the likes. If you pass this round Epic will reach out to you to take a Rembrandt Profile test as well as a skills assessment over Proctor U. Neither are difficult. Then you will have a phone interview with a current Project Manager, which is super laidback. You go through your resume and talk about why you are a good fit for the position and the company. Then, if selected, you will have an on campus. Haven't had the on campus yet!
