    Project Manager Interview

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2+ weeks - interviewed at Epic Systems Corporation in October 2010.

    Interview Details

    Online application with a initial test upon submission. Followed up promptly with email the next week to set up phone interview. Phone interview was 30 minutes with a current employee, not with HR - gave some perspective on their job role and how they like the company and working there. Then came onsite for the in person interview - it was a half-day long process with a pre-prepared presentation, group interview/overview of the role and additional testing and 1:1 interaction with HR.

    Application Details

    I applied online - interviewed at Epic Systems Corporation in January 2012.

    Interview Details

    You begin by taking several personality tests online. This is a series of tests where they ask you situational questions on how you would handle certain scenarios. You then have a phone interview with someone in the position. This is basically for them to see if you are a sociable person. You then go on-site to Epic and have a full day interview. You get there around 8 and stay until around 4. During that time you will meet with several people in the company, do a presentation and take several tests where you solve math problems.

    Interview Questions
    • The most unexpected thing was doing a group interview session where you have to each answer how you would handle a certain scenario.   Answer Question
    Negotiation Details

    Project Manager/Implementation Consultant Interview

    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took 6 weeks - interviewed at Epic Systems Corporation in April 2014.

    Interview Details

    Read in other posts for more details about the process. Overview provided:
    1.) Initial Screening/ Additional Application Questions
    2.) Phone Screen (Easy interview, resume based questions)
    3.) Skills Assessments (You'll make yourself nervous if you try to prepare)
    4.) Paid trip & airfare up to Epic in Madison- Day long interview

    The day long interview was simultaneously the most enjoyable interview I've ever had and the most stressful post interview process I've had. I had a great time. You go around campus, see the software you could be working on, give a presentation, do some basic case studies, talk with an HR rep, and then you leave. After leaving, I was anxiously waiting by the phone. 5 days later, I got the call with an offer.

    Pieces of Advice: Enjoy the process. The more relaxed you are, the more you will be able to be yourself (which can easily translate into getting an offer). DO NOT show up in a suit. I was wearing nice slacks and a polo shirt and I would guess I was better dressed than 60% of the current employees.

    Interview Questions
    • Nothing crazy. Some stuff about working in teams and about personal work preferences are oddly stressful.   Answer Question

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 6 weeks - interviewed at Epic Systems Corporation in March 2014.

    Interview Details

    I submitted an application through their website and they got back to me a week later to set up a phone interview. I spoke with a current project manager who asked typical interview questions - how'd I hear about Epic, tell about some things on your resume, where do I see myself in 5 years, etc... I then was set up with an online proctored assessment (about 1.5 hours, very much like an LSAT/GRE/SAT type) which tested logic, math and English skills.

    A week later, they invited me to an all day on-campus interview. They pay for the flight, cabs, hotel, and the night before, a current employee took other candidates and I out to a very nice dinner in downtown Madison. The next morning, a cab took us out to Epic's campus. There were probably 35 other candidates there that day, and the entire day felt like a college visit again. We sat down for a software demo, met with a project manager to find out more about the job and gave a 10-minute presentation on any topic. The main interview was a case study with another candidate about dealing with different types of hospital employees, and another interview with HR at the end of the day asking typical interview questions.

    Reasons for Declining

    I did not like the area and the job would not have given me any type of long-term career benefit (however, it seems that if you are interested in healthcare management or IT, then this would be a perfect entry-level opportunity for you).

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 6 weeks - interviewed at Epic Systems Corporation.

    Interview Details

    First step was a phone interview after submitting my application through their website, after the phone interview I had to take some online assessments that were fairly challenging. After passing the assessments I was invited to an on-site interview which included dinner with a host, a short presentation, a tour, case study, position overview, position interview, and HR interview. It was very well organized and it was clear that Epic has gotten really good at hosting large groups of recruits. It was fun to meet so many new people throughout the process and it was definitely a unique interview experience that you won't likely find anywhere else. I loved their campus and everyone there seemed happy to be there. I am still waiting to hear back from them about the position.

    Application Details

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

    Interview Details

    Standard interview questions, nothing out of the ordinary, punctual when calling. By asking the right questions, I was able to determine whether I was a good fit or not. Listen very carefully, particularly to what's not being said... Evaluate thoroughly. It's also interesting to note the tone of the interviewer: how knowledgeable and comfortable they feel when selling their organization (mine was nervous and acting like s/he was still in college...

    Interview Questions
    • I surprised them by asking so many questions!!! I came prepared! I read over 200 reviews of interviews/offers/site visits and knew what they might ask as well as what I should be asking... Get their opinion on what THEY dislike about their own organization... You might be surprised!   Answer Question

    Project Manager Interview

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

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Epic Systems Corporation in September 2010.

    Interview Details

    A recruiter contacted me which lead to an initial phone interview. She immediately invited me to the campus for an interview. They flew me out to Madison, and I was there for a couple of days. There was an informal dinner the night before the interview with a group of recruits and a current employee.
    The next day, they sent a taxi to drive a group of us to the campus. We attended a presentation where they explained their software and more details about the company. They gave us a tour of the campus (amazing), and had lunch in the cafeteria with some current employees.
    After lunch, I had my first interview with a current project manager. It was mainly a case analysis, and I was asked to give my opinion on what I would do if I was the project manager in the given situation. I was given 10-15 minutes to read over the case and organize my thoughts. I then had to discuss my reasoning with the interviewer.
    After the case study, I had to give a presentation to a group. I was also interviewing for a "teaching role", so my presentation had to be 20 minutes long, and it could be about anything I wanted. I just had to teach the group something.
    After the presentation, I had another interview. It was more traditional, focused on behavioral based questions. It lasted maybe 20-30 minutes.
    After that interview, I had to take an IQ test.
    After that, they called a taxi, and I was driven to the airport.

    Project Manager/Implementation Consultant Interview

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

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 months - interviewed at Epic Systems Corporation in February 2014.

    Interview Details

    Starting in december I applied through an employee referral. A week later I received an email to schedule a phone interview. The phone interview was very relaxed, and more for them to get a feel for you, not your skills. They asked about things on my resume, but more to hear how I spoke about them.

    After the phone interview I was given a chance to schedule a skills assessment. The skills assessment is on math, logic, programming, and grammar. In regards to the math/logic it is nothing you can study for. The math is very simple and testing your ingenuity, not your grasp of algebra. Each question has some sort of trick to it. However, If you learn the basics of c++ or javascript it will help you breeze through the computer test. It asks about concepts like strings, arrays, variables, etc. anyone with minor programming knowledge will ace it no problem. I would highly recommend this as it is basically free points. The grammar is pretty standard too, nothing you should have to study for.

    A few days after submitting my test I was scheduled for an onsite interview. They fly you out, put you in a nice hotel, take you to diner all the night before. The actual onsite interview was really relaxing to me. I was told at dinner that if you're flown out the company is 75% sure they want you. Now they just want to make sure you're a good fit for the culture. As far as what you do:

    Interview with someone who is in the position you're applied for (project manager in my case) this was pretty standard interview with some fluffer HR questions.

    Give a 10 minute presentation on a topic of your choosing. expect questions and be confident.

    Receive a 30 minute demo of the software.

    Receive an overview of the job position you're applied to.

    Take a tour of campus/eat lunch.

    Have a case study interview.. less business oriented, more ethics and how to handle an angry client.

    Have an interview with HR and that's it.

    they don't want to see you stiff and boring. For project management you are expected to be traveling with your coworkers 75% of the time.. no one wants to be stuck in ORD for 5 hours with a genius that can't hold a conversation about something other than work or studies.
