Average Interview

Application

I applied online. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Epic Systems Corporation (Verona, WI) in August 2015.

Interview

Online application process is straightforward and easy. Shortly after applying qualified candidates receive an email to set up a phone interview with a Project Manager at epic. Call is about 30 minutes and not bad at all. Then you take an assessment and it is not easy. Then you get invited to their campus and they just want to see that you are personable. You are asked to do a 10 minute presentation on anything you want, so choose something actually interesting to you.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Epic Systems Corporation (Madison, WI) in August 2015.

    Interview

    Applied online then was asked to schedule a phone interview and take a personality test and proctored exam within the next week. Remember, this role is centered around technology but you are mostly managing relationships with people. Answer honestly but if you're a loner, easily irritated/impatient, or argumentative this may not be a great fit for you. For the proctored exam you take the programming portion first. This is very draining...make sure you check over your answers for the second part of this exam since you may be prone to making stupid mistakes after attempting to learn computer programming language. The second portion of the exam is logic problems, reading numerical charts and filling in missing values, and some math. The phone interview is very basic, they walk through your resume and tell you about the position. Take it and run with it. Emphasize good work ethic, collaboration, working well with different personalities, and professionalism. Remember if you get this position you would be working with higher up's at hospitals, so they don't want a total rookie. Ask your interviewer questions. A day later I got an email to schedule an on-site interview some time within the next two weeks. There's an option to arrive the evening prior to your interview and get dinner with a PM. DO IT. Every bit counts. Show enthusiasm for the position and Madison. It really is a cool town. The following day started around 8:30am and ended at 1:45pm. It included an overview of Epic, a casual overview with a current PM and another applicant, an interview with a project manager, a case study with one or two other applicants, lunch, tour, and an HR interview. You also have to give a 10 minute presentation (persuasive or informative). It can be on anything so do something that's easy for you to talk about and somewhat interesting. Make sure to keep to watch your time and not go over. Whatever salary you put in you application you will be offered if it is between $55-65. Maybe higher if you have another offer on the table that you can subtly bring up. I told them I had an offer and I needed to know ASAP...they called me with an offer the next day. Don't be nervous, everyone you meet is very personable and laid back. Half of the day is really casual and they just want to see if you're a good fit with the culture. The whole day is actually really fun too if you try to make friends with the other candidates. Epic is always looking to hire so it's not cut throat, be friendly! Your interviewers will probably notice. At least that's what I did and it worked out.

    Interview Questions

    • On a scale of 1-10 how critical are you...explain? Tell me about a time you were criticized...how did you work on this? You're in a group with other project managers who are just as experienced as you but you've been appointed as the group leader. They all want decision A, but you want decision B. What would you do?   Answer Question

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at Epic Systems Corporation (Boston, MA) in May 2015.

    Interview

    I scheduled a 30 minute interview with the HR representative. Before the interview, they asked me to complete a skills assessment as well as a Rembrandt personality profile. The interviewer called promptly from a blocked number. He was a current project manager and understood the monotony of asking some questions like my GPA and why I am applying for the position but quickly moved to understand who I am and my experiences.

    I am very impressed with how efficient and swift the Epic hiring process is. They get back to you within 2 weeks, usually within a week after online submission about setting up a phone interview. The phone interview is with someone who is at the position you are applying for; I got someone very friendly, professional, and informative. In general, this is a quick and smooth process.

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Epic Systems Corporation (Verona, WI) in February 2015.

    Interview

    Phone interview, followed by an on-site interview. The onsite was an 8 hour day meeting with people in the current position, HR reps, and eventually making a 15 minute presentation on something you enjoy. The whole day was pretty taxing, but EPIC is a rather demanding company. The interview fit the job requirements and expectations. A campus tour was included, and I had a chance to eat lunch with some employees currently in the position I was applying for.
