Project Manager Interview

Anonymous Employee  in  Madison, WI
Anonymous Employee in Madison, WI
Application Details

I interviewed through college or university. The process took 3 weeks - interviewed at Epic Systems Corporation in October 2010.

Interview Details

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.

    Project Manager Interview

    Application Details

    I interviewed online. The process took 4 weeks - interviewed at Epic Systems Corporation in October 2010.

    Interview Details

    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.

    The process began with an online personality test, after which I had a phone interview. I was invited to campus for a one-on-one interview, an overview of the software program, tour of the campus, etc. I was given three written tests (SAT style). A couple weeks later I was invited back to campus for a second interview, presentation, and several casual meetings with Epic employees. A week and an half later i was offered a position.

    I interviewed through college or university. The process took a day - interviewed at Epic Systems Corporation in March 2010.

    Interview Details

    I first had an on campus behavioral interview. After this interview, I was invited to an on-site interview in Madison. While there, I had a campus tour, an overview of the software, an overview of the position I was interviewing for, a one-on-one case interview for the position, a presentation, and a final interview with the HR person. Everyone was very nice and friendly throughout the process, and I felt like I learned a lot about what I would be doing at the company through their final round interview.

    I interviewed through college or university. The process took 3 days - interviewed at Epic Systems Corporation in March 2010.

    Interview Details

    Pretty much like the others have said.

    First, a phone interview, basically a preliminary vetting.

    Then I was invited onsite to take a skills assessment. You're graded on both time and accuracy. It's basically a baby LSAT, so if you took that, you're in good shape.

    Finally, there was a day-long interview where they also introduce you to the Epic campus and product. This is where you do a case study and make a presentation, and go through a series of 1:1 interviews.

    I interviewed online. The process took a day - interviewed at Epic Systems Corporation in February 2010.

    Interview Details

    I took the skills test. It was a 3 part exam with a reading, math, and skills part. It was an extremely analytical exam. The reading had a lot of analogy questions while the math part had a lot of questions that involved critical thinking skills. The last part involves learning a new computer programming software just to see how well you can follow directions.

    The process took a day - interviewed at Epic Systems Corporation in February 2010.

    Interview Details

    Interview wasn't too difficult, mostly questions about my experiences and why I was interested in the position. Asked my ACT/SAT score and whether I wanted to go to grad school. I think they wanted me to say no. I could relate well with the interviewer so it was very casual and not stressful. Made me even more interested! I have my skills assessment on-site coming up next.

    The process took a day - interviewed at Epic Systems Corporation in January 2010.

    Interview Details

    Was approached through school Career center where I had posted my resume. After the phone interview, I was flown out to Madison for on-site interview. Full day of getting to know the company and interviewing with a variety of people. A lot of questions based on your personality rather than past job experience. I felt like they had already decided that I was competent and was deciding if I would fit in.

    Project Manager Interview

    Application Details

    I interviewed online. The process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Epic Systems Corporation in August 2009.

    Interview Details

    I applied online for a position as a Project Manager, although the website has very vague job descriptions (intentionally, an employee told me) and I wasn't sure if that was exactly the best fit for me. I'm from the Milwaukee area and I had heard some good things (as well as a lot of negative things) about the company, which is why, as a recent college grad, I applied. Also, Madison is a great city, and I'd love to live there.

    After I submitted my application, I was contacted within a couple of days about taking an online personality test and setting up a phone interview. The interview was pretty easy--it lasted only about a half an hour and the woman I spoke with was very nice. The personality test was a little strange. I'm not sure if they turn down people based solely on their responses to it, but I hope they don't, because I don't think it could possibly give them much useful information about the applicant.

    A few days after the phone interview, I was emailed and asked to set up an on-site interview. The facilities are very nice, although it is way further outside of Madison than I had expected. Everyone I spoke to was friendly. And very young. I was given a quick, very uninformative tour and a company overview. Then I met with an HR person and had a rather short interview. He pretty much only asked situational questions. I would say it went pretty well, but then again he was so enthusiastic about literally everything I said/life in general, it was kind of hard to tell. After the interview I took three self-proctored tests, which took a little less than two hours, and were kind of tricky but nothing terrible.

    The whole place gave me a weird vibe, to be honest. And mostly, I decided I wasn't terribly interested in working at a place with such an insane turn over rate.

    The process took 4+ weeks - interviewed at Epic Systems Corporation in July 2009.

    Interview Details

    1 - Personality test. Online, maybe 30 minutes. Series of multiple choice answers where you must select the answer most like your personality. Answers keep getting narrowed down until only one "least like you" answer remains.
    2 - Phone interview. This is done by a HR screener, maybe 10 minutes. Focus on saying as little as possible. Goal is to not give them a reason to throw you out. Walked through my last three jobs and asked what I like most, hated most, and why I left. Asked about salary requirement and would not budge until I gave a response.
    3 - Skills/IQ test. Proctored test, about 1-2 hours.
