Law Interview (Neutral Experience; Average Interview)
I applied through a recruiter and the process took a day - interviewed at Allscripts in September 2008.
Interview Details – I interviewed for a legal position in 2008, under the prior General Counsel, not the person who is serving in that position today. I would expect the company was very different at that time than it was now. They were undergoing a great deal of change (it sounded like they had just acquired a company in NC), and they were looking for people with experience in integrating businesses. It sounded like a very fast-paced place. Electronic medical records seems like an industry with a high potential for growth. I would have been interested in progressing further with the process, but the company did not want to take the process any further.

Associate Technical Support Interview (Positive Experience; Average Interview)
I applied online and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Allscripts in January 2012.
Interview Details – I received my first phone interview after I applied through the company's website. It was a general interview about me and any related experience I have that fit the position. Some technical question also. I then received another interview invitation that I had to travel from one state to Raleigh, NC. Everything went really good with great organization and interviewer. Well organized!!!. Started with a presentation, we (28 candidates) started with 1 to 1 presentation with 2 different interviewers in 2 different room. I was able to answer all the questions and I think I did pretty good. very technical.
After 2 weeks, I received another call telling to that I will have another interview again (phone). I did the interview, and it went pretty good, and I was told that they will contact me soon.
I am not sure what really happened, but I almost got the job unless someone else had better qualification for this position. I recommend the company to anyone who want to apply because they really offer great benefit and great people working there.
