Interview Questions

  • everything is in negative form. They don't focus on any of your strengths, they just want to see what you suck at.   Answer Question

Reasons for Declining

the company is a churn and burn company. They throw a nice salary at you, but they work you like a dog in return, thus making the salary less valuable. I have friends that work there and everyday they want to jump off a bridge. They also brag about their campus and how nice it is, which is just sickening because when you work there, you never get to enjoy it. I also hear there is a ton of high school drama among the employees. Lastly, from what I hear they have performance reviews, but you never get to them and receive any direct feedback.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 5 weeksinterviewed at Epic Systems Corporation (Madison, WI) in December 2011.

    Interview

    The interview process started with a personality and basic math test, followed by a brief phone interview. The phone interview was fairly basic consisting of mostly questions about my interest in Epic and educational background. I was then selected for the on-site interview day in Madison. The day was long, but very structured and organized. There was a 2 person case analysis, one on one interview, 10 minute presentationa and some testing. The testing is basically SAT type questions related to verbal and math skills. The process took about 5 weeks and I was offered the position after recieving a phone call from the recruiter. Be prepared and you will do fine.

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 5 weeksinterviewed at Epic Systems Corporation (Verona, WI) in November 2011.

    Interview

    A friend of mine who works at Epic submitted my name through Epic's internal referral process. (I highly recommend this to anyone interested in working at Epic. Your contact will get a bonus for successful referrals, and you are four times more likely to get hired.) I was emailed by someone in HR and sent links for online assessments and position application. About two weeks after completing all of that I had a phone interview. At the end of the interview the interviewer scheduled a day the following week for me to fly out to Madison and interview in person at their Verona campus. The night before the interview I was taken to dinner by an Epic employee along with several other applicants. This was a chance to ask questions without worrying about the person being in HR. (Really this person does not make any hiring decisions, so try to relax a bit.) The day of my interview I took a shuttle from the hotel to the main Epic campus with several other applicants. Once there we were given a tour by someone in HR and told all about Epic. The campus is really cool, so the tour was a lot of fun. I was applying for both a project management and training position, so I was interviewed by a project manager and a trainer. I also gave a 20-minute presentation to an audience of four employees to showcase my presentation skills. The topic of the presentation was up to me. After the interviews I took a number of written evaluations. I can't give any details about the evaluations, but I can say that they are quite challenging and there is really no way to study for them. After completing the evaluations I had one more interview with someone in HR. That interview lasted about 20 minutes. After that I was able to take a self-guided tour of the campus before taking a taxi to the airport. It took about two weeks to hear back on the job. When they offered me the job they told me how much the job paid. There was no pay negotiation, which was a relief. The amount offered was actually much higher than I would have asked for.

    Interview Questions

    • If you had a customer analyst who was not completing assignments, what would you do?   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    No negotiation, but you really don't need it. The compensation is quite high.

    Interview

    I first had a one on one interview and it went wonderfully. The man that interviewed me was extremely nice and was knowledgable of the company. I then promptly took a personailty test which consisted of various scenarios and how I would handle it. After that I had to complete a few forms online and another questionaire. I then had to wait 7-10 business days for a response. The next step in the interview process being flown to Madison and taking a logistics exam.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeksinterviewed at Epic Systems Corporation (Verona, WI) in October 2010.

    Interview

    I was contacted online by Epic's HR, suggesting I apply for the Project manager position. There was a phone interview about a week later, and they invited me to Verona for an interview in person. So I flew out a week later, was put up at a nice hotel with 8 other prospective recruits, and taken out to dinner in a group of 2 other recruits and an employee. The next morning, we were ushered into a conference room on Epic campus in the Andromeda building, given a company overview and software demo. There was a small group interview followed by a skills assessment with a single recruiter. Next was a presentation, then lunch at Epic's cafeteria, and another, more focused 1:1 interview. A ~2-hr aptitude/intelligence test followed. I am still waiting to hear back from Epic; it has been a week and a half. I really don't know whether they eliminate candidates one by one and call the recruits they want at the end of the two-week call window or if the process is the other way around--let's hope that barely over a week isn't a bad thing. The campus was very nicely laid out, and employees seemed fine. An ex-employee at the airport warned me and another recruit that the company is not kid-friendly, so if we wanted to start a family, it would be tough to get enough time with them while traveling 4 days per week. Thank god I don't want kids. Overall I like the company, and am hoping I get the call.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at Epic Systems Corporation (Madison, WI) in October 2010.

    Interview

    I first had a one on one interview. It was very laid back. I had a friend who works at Epic, so we mostly just talked about her and why she chose Epic. Then he told me about all the travel perks of Epic and asked me a couple of questions about my resume. They also asked for my expected salary, which I wasn't prepared for. Then I took some tests, similar to the LSAT. I got an email a couple of weeks later for an on-site interview. We had a tour, case interview, presentation (which they did not tell me about in advance! Their mistake, but I had to do it anyway), HR interview and they made me re-take the tests.

    Interview Questions

    Reasons for Declining

    I am wanting to go to law school, but also because I got a weird vibe. They stress how fun Epic is to work at, but everyone has their office doors closed and not very many people ate lunch. Also, I have heard from past Epic employees that they burn you out and you move on, but with no skills.

    Application

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

    Interview

    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.
