    The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at Epic Systems Corporation.

    Interview

    The initial test is pretty difficult. You have to make sure to do well on this and your pone interview. You are then invited to Madison to interview on site. There is a day full of interviews and you leave wondering if you did well enough. I haven't found out yet and it's been a week today.

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Epic Systems Corporation (Verona, WI).

    Interview

    Quick turnaround, fair, good hospitality, easy case study. They give you a tour of the campus which they are very proud of. They have a rotation you follow to get interviewed by different positions throughout the company. My interview ended with a short discussion with an HR representative who laid out expectations and told me about the salary and time frame.

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

    Interview

    Sent in an application and resume online. I was asked to complete a logic test and personality test online before the phone interview. Make sure you take the logic test in a quiet place but its basic math and verbal reasoning stuff. There is a programming part that's just to see how you learn something new basically. The phone interview was pretty easy. Just why you want to work there? what experience you have etc. Pretty basic. Next is the onsite interview which i have later this week.

    Project Manager/Implementation Consultant Interview

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2+ monthsinterviewed at Epic Systems Corporation (Madison, WI) in May 2015.

    Interview

    First, I was contacted via e-mail to set up a phone interview with a current employee in that position. I initially was recruited for a Technical position. They asked about my resume, my interest in this role, how I handle success/failure, why I am interested in Epic, etc. It was a very simple interview and lasted around 20-30 minutes. Make sure to ask the person questions about their role. Next, I was set up to take their online test and personality test. There are 4 sections (Math, Verbal, Programming, and a time Standard section with a mix of all 3). You just need scratch paper and a calculator. I do poorly on standardized tests, so I'm surprised they continued the process but they had me apply for a different role: Project Manager. Lastly, I was invited to the on-site interview. They put you up in a nice hotel with other Epic candidates. I went to dinner the night before with Epic employees who were friendly and very excited to talk about their job and Madison. The following day, we had our interviews. The on-site interview takes up your entire day. Every minute is planned and extremely organized, there's always a different person meeting and/or interviewing you. You'll have an interview with someone in the current position, a case study, a presentation, lunch, a tour of the campus, and a final interview with HR. For the presentation, you should pick a topic you're really interested in, it'll be easier to answer questions. Practice beforehand, they're really judging your performance and ability to speak in public. Throughout the day, whether it's in the case study or the final interview with HR, make sure you emphasize communication, team work, flexibility, and being goal-oriented. Make sure you're dressed in business casual at least! For men, I recommend khakis, slacks, a nice button down dress shirt or polo. No tie necessary. For women, I recommend business causal slacks, a nice skirt and sweater, a dress. If you dress up professional, you will really stick out. Their attire is always causal and it's important they can see you fitting in there. Also, do not feel intimidated by the other Epic candidates. There will be at least 20 of you interviewing throughout the day. They are always hiring multiples for a position. It's great to make a friend and have someone to talk about the experience with, also it's good for the employees to see you feeling comfortable at Epic.

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Epic Systems Corporation (Madison, WI) in May 2015.

    Interview

    My interview lasted from 9:30 am to 3pm. The first part of the day included a software demo followed by an HR interview that lasted about 30 minutes. From the HR interview, I did my required 10 minute presentation and a group case study. Later in the afternoon, I had a project manager interview and a tour of the campus. I finished the day with a wrap up and exchange of paperwork with my assigned Epic recruiter.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

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

    Interview

    Pretty fast turn around. First a personality test. Then a phone interview to go over your resume and company. Then a long skills assessment involving math, grammar, coding and logic. Not too bad but do some research before. Then onsite interview. There are a few case studies, personality questions from HR, situational questions from someone in your position, tour of campus and an overview of the company and software.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Epic Systems Corporation in May 2015.

    Interview

    I had a phone interview and then completed a skills assessment, which took a little over 2 hours. I actually thought the grammar/verbal section was the most difficult because I noticed several errors that were spelling errors or just very awkward phrasing and it wasn't entirely clear whether they wanted me to correct these things as well as grammar. Math section was really easy. I only answered 5 or 6 of the questions for the 2 minute (10 question) speed test. The programming test was challenging and time consuming but I felt like I got most of it. I received an email 2 days after my phone interview saying that I was eliminated from consideration for the PM job but that I could apply for Quality Assurance. That's not really my thing so I'm moving on to other applications. Not to be conceited or anything, but I'm not really sure what I could have done wrong to be eliminated at this early stage--I have a high GPA from a top university and, though I'm not sure how I did on the skills assessment, I test very well (got a 2370 SAT back in the day) and I would be shocked if I did poorly enough to be eliminated. I thought the phone interview was very casual and they only asked a couple questions, so it's hard to believe that could actually have much of an impact. I suppose I could have said something wrong, and there were awkward parts. On the personality test I tried to emphasize that I'm extroverted and work well in groups, but maybe I missed something there.

    Application

    I applied through college or university – interviewed at Epic Systems Corporation (Verona, WI) in May 2015.

    Interview

    Typical interview process up until the online assessment. This is where it started to differ from the norm. If they like you in your first two phone interviews, they will send you a link to take a proctored online assessment. Overall, it wasn't too bad, typically takes about 60-90 min. After this, they invite you onsite, where they put you up in a pretty nice hotel in Madison, take you out to dinner with 3 or 4 other candidates along with an Epic employee. Then the interview day, which consists of campus tours, info sessions with employees in the positions you are applying for, case studies which morph into behavioral interviews, and typically a short presentation on a topic of your choosing. Overall, the whole on-site interview day was pretty comfortable and non-stressful, but you get the kind of idea the whole time that they are trying to sell the company to you a bit too much, which seems fishy. Red-flags everywhere when reading reviews of employees that work or have worked there.
