    Application Details

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

    Interview Details

    The reviews on here are all very accurate and helpful when entering Epic's hiring process. I initially applied online (very easy application- pretty much just upload your resume). After a few days, I was contacted to set up a 30min phone interview with a Project Manager. During the phone interview, we talked about my resume and experiences, the project manager position and what it entails, and then the remainder of the time was for any questions that I had. After the phone interview, I was contacted to do online assessments which took about 2 hours to complete via a Proctor website. Then I was contacted to come in to Epic for an in-person interview. Onsite I had 2 interviews (1 with a project manager and 1 with an HR Recruiter), a case study, and gave a short presentation on whatever topic I desired. In addition, we were given a demo of the software, a tour of the campus, and lunch. If you read these reviews, prepare for your presentation, and have a good attitude, the day will be fine! Everyone I met was very nice and friendly and I enjoyed the day (although it got pretty tiring by the end). Good luck!

    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2+ monthsinterviewed at Epic Systems Corporation.

    Interview Details

    I was contacted via a recruiter for another position (keeping the details somewhat vague so I don't out myself). After applying I was switched to a project manager candidate. Standard process:
    1 - Phone interview which went decent
    2 - Proctored testing. The programming test isn't really programming heavy, most of the tests are just logic related.
    3 - In person interviews. There were about 4-5 interviews I think, a presentation, software demo, tour. Hotel was awesome, and the dinner was cool. Most people you meet will be pretty socially awkward, get used to it. The exception is project managers. If you aren't very outgoing and extraverted you probably won't be selected for implementation.

    I got an offer for a third position about 1-2 weeks after the interview process. Don't be surprised or offended if you end up in another position you didn't initially apply for. They do a good job of matching candidates up with jobs that will be the most mutually beneficial, and I'm kinda glad I didn't end up a project manager.

    No negotiation. They have ranges for each role and you'll get something in the range based on your interview process scores and background.

    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at Epic Systems Corporation.

    Interview Details

    The interview process at Epic is very thorough and planned. It is pretty clear that Epic holds potential employees in high regard. The three-step process involved a phone interview, an off-site test (logic/math), and an on-site interview. All logistics were handled by Epic, and the process was very professional and well-organized. The campus itself is incredibly beautiful, the atmosphere was very friendly, and everyone throughout the interview process (and you meet a lot of people) were very helpful.

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 5 weeksinterviewed at Epic Systems Corporation in October 2012.

    Interview Details

    The process is very straightforward, but a little lengthy. I initially submitted my application online for Project Manager. I was contacted within a few days to set-up a phone interview and do a Rembrandt questionnaire. Before the phone interview, I was asked to submit a timed writing sample. The prompt was given to me at the time of the testing. After finding out that I passed the tests and phone interview, I was contacted to set-up a proctored exam. Luckily, I was able to take it with students at my school. The test was pretty basic, logical reasoning problems, verbal and programming. Programming for me was an optional test. After I found out that I passed this portion, I was contacted to interview on site in Madison. The day of interviews is pretty intense and lengthy, but overall, it's a really positive experience. Be well-prepared for behavioral questions as well as follow-up questions. Some people have to give a presentation, but HR will let you know beforehand if that's necessary. If you are interested in a position other than the one they want to hire you for, make sure and let them know.

    Interview Questions
    • The presentation isn't difficult as you know about it beforehand and you get to pick the topic. Just make sure that you don't let your "audience" (3 people) fluster you with their questions. Be well-prepared to talk about yourself and "imagine" yourself in situations.   Answer Question

    Project Manager Interview

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at Epic Systems Corporation in July 2012.

    Interview Details

    Applied online and heard back from HR within a week, asking me to take online Rembrandt exam - I suspect there isn't any right fit they are looking for.. just looking for consistency in your answers. I then had a phone interview with an HR rep within the next week.. went over basic resume stuff (also seemingly unnecessary details, like SAT and GRE score.. GPA...) and the Project Manager/ IS role - she stressed this position is VERY travel-heavy .. they do not hide this. I have a few friends who had this position and they all burned out within 2 years... I explained that I was well aware of the highs.. and lows.. of the position.. and very willing to take it on! I then got an invitation to take some assessments remotely (I live in NYC) .. took a basic math test and a simple programming quiz (they explain their made-up language.. no need for actual programming skills.. just looking to see if you can learn new things quickly). After a week and a half (I had thought I failed!).. I head back from HR and was invited to fly out to Madison and visit the campus. The whole process went very smoothly and was quite nice. I was put up at the Hyatt and very comfortable. The interview day is rather intense.. starts at 8am and they have a full agenda for you.. tour.. software demo.. and three 1-on-1 interviews, a case study, and a presentation you lead. The presentation was the part I was most afraid of.. but turns out the three folks in the room you speak to are really nice and don't put on any added pressure. Just pick a topic you are very knowledgeable in .. and comfortable speaking about freely - I didn't and regret it :( Also had a verbal assessment test (grammar.. etc) and a quick 2 minute test.. not sure what the point of that was.

    I just got done with this earlier this week.. so haven't heard back either way.. but I hear they call regardless of their decision o_O

    All in all, the questions asked weren't too difficult... but watch out, it's a marathon of a day, so make sure you are well rested!!

    Salary was not enough for the hours they expect (do not short change yourself! they will ask what salary you want during your interview, and I low-balled myself .. and they offered what I said.. there are folks who start at 65K, so don't ask for below that!!)

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2+ monthsinterviewed at Epic Systems Corporation in May 2012.

    Interview Details

    1. Preliminary Application
    2. Rembrandt Profile
    3. Phone Interview
    4. Skills Assessment
    5. On-site Interview - Consists of a case-study interview, a 10-minute presentation, an interview with HR, a couple Q&A/ Demonstrations from Epic Staff.

    Epic's campus is absolutely amazing - the architecture is ridiculously nice, and the employees get to help decorate it. From what I have seen so far, the people are pretty young (35 year olds looked ancient), there is no dress code, the food in the cafeteria is amazing, and Madison/Verona are also awesome (in the summertime). The presentation wasn't too bad - everyone was nice and didn't try to mess you up. They really just want to get a feel for who you are as a person. So don't just be yourself - be your best self.
