Project Manager Interview

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

The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed 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.

    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 1+ weekinterviewed at Epic Systems Corporation in September 2007.

    Interview Details

    I was originally contacted due to my resume on careerbuilder.com. The first phone interview lasted about 15 min, we then set up the first in person interview, which took about 3 hours. The second interview took about 4 hours. The first in person interview consisted of 2 tests, an intelligence test and a programming test. The second interview consisted of a 10 min presentation and a personality test. Sometimes your personality test is what determines what role you will have at Epic.

    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at Epic Systems Corporation in January 2007.

    Interview Details

    I was asked to complete a phone interview and "logic" test. The test has two parts. One is basic logic, the second is basic programming logic. The programming portion is not technical, and can be done by anyone, its just an evaluation of your ability to comprehend new arbitrary rule sets. Next is an onsite interview where you're asked to do a 10 min. presentation to a group on any topic you choose. This is to evaluate your presentation skills, and should focus on concisely and logically presenting a topic to the panel as if you're introducing them to the subject for the first time (not teaching them, just introducing them to something new). Be prepared to answer a lot of questions during the presentation. The one on one interview are all about your ability to manage projects, and are mostly situational.

    Epic is notorious for formula's. You are hired or denied based on a combination of your test scores, your college GPA (weighted depending on the reputation of your college), and the evaluators marks on your in person interviews. Accordingly, you need not apply unless your GPA is good for your school (3.5 and above for most people is probably a fair assumption) and you can handle doing well on a test unprepared. You can always exaggerate your GPA if you're worried that you might be below the bar.

    Interview Questions
    • The interview went through and asked what each on of my references would say is my greatest weakness and strength.   View Answer
    Negotiation Details
    There isn't any chance for negotiation. All new hires start with the same salary offer depending on your position. If you have relevant expertise, such as work history in the medical field or programming skills you should receive a higher offer, but I suspect that's set through a pre determined formula and not negotiation.

    Application Details

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

    Interview Details

    30 minute phone screen including questions on why I chose my major, different elements of my resume, as well as my "life goals" and my "dream job." Got an e-mail 2 weeks later inviting me to come on-site for an all day interview. The on-site interview consists of a building tour, a software demo, then a bunch of interviews. one is a case study you do with another person, then you do a 2 hour assessment exam, you have other HR interviews. It's ultimately not that difficult.

    The process took 4 weeksinterviewed at Epic Systems Corporation in April 2011.

    Interview Details

    The process was really nice and they treat every recruit as if they will get an offer. A recruiter found my resume on monster and invited me to apply for the PM position. After that step, I took a personality test, and then had a phone interview where a PM asked me some basic background questions, discussed the position, and allowed me to ask some questions. Two days later, I received an invitation to fly out to their HQ in Madison. They flew me out, took me out to dinner, and put me up in a nice hotel. On the day of the interview, I took a cab over to their campus (about 30 minutes, and again paid for) it was beautiful, modern, and fun. The day consisted of learning about Epic and a whole bunch of interviews. There was a case study, a presentation that I gave, and an interview with HR. After all of that, I sat down and took some evaluation tests, and I'm not sure how well I did on those. Its been five days since the interview, and they told me that I would hear within a week or two.

    I applied through college or university. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at Epic Systems Corporation in October 2010.

    Interview Details

    The interview process at Epic was very straightforward. I was informed of how the process would unfold and it never deviated from that path. I was contacted by an HR rep after they had received my application to schedule a 20 minute phone interview. Then I was required to take a three hour skills test. The final step was an onsite interview in Verona, Wisconsin. It was very systematized. Epic clearly wants as many candidates to choose from as possible.
