I applied through other source. The process took 2+ months – interviewed at Allscripts in April 2013.
Horrible company. Horrible interview process. Not organized. NO feedback. Had to keep asking over and over where the process was... No feedback. Difficult to deal with since it's oursourced.

I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 days – interviewed at Allscripts (Raleigh, NC).
Typically a team of four from the Product you are interviewing for will divide up several hours and interview you one-on-one. They will ask you typical questions rangind from how would you handle this situation to some actual questions specific to the position you are applying for. You will probably meet with a lead, project manager, clinician, and a peer and possibly a manager.
- If you know your job, you'll be fine. Nothing out of the ordinary. They mostly want to see if you will 'fit in'. Answer Question
Don't go in as a temporary employee here. They don't like temps for the most part. You won't be supported by your team members or anyone and you will be left to sink or swim. Make sure you negotiate your salary from the onset. From the interview to an actual offer letter takes up to 2 months so if you are in a hurry to get employed, nothing moves fast.

I applied online. The process took 2+ months – interviewed at Allscripts (Raleigh, NC) in April 2013.
The recruiter responded through email for my online application to share available schedule for an initial screening interview, and he kept on postponing saying he is busy and one day scheduled the interview but didnot inform me. The hiring manager was positive in understanding my concern and rescheduled. Successfully completed initial phone screening and was later informed to visit Raleigh office for f to f interview.
The hiring manager and director had a one on one face interview and on the following day was informed that they would like to offer me position. Background screening was done and salary negotiation discussions also happened between me and recruiter.
But after a week they informed me that due to hiring freeze cannot offer me a position at that moment.

I applied online. The process took 3 weeks – interviewed at Allscripts (Springfield, IL) in March 2013.
I submitted myself online. I went through two preliminary interviews that seemed to go well enough to get me the third interview. Two guys called me on google hangout and we did a webcam interview. It was awkward because they were typing to each other while I was talking and they were laughing while I was taking the tests. I passed two of them. The third was an algorithm problem. It was this: I tried but I wasn't quite ready to code that while these two guys are laughing and typing to each other.
