    Reporting Engineer Interview

    Application Details

    I interviewed through college or university - interviewed at Epic Systems Corporation in January 2013.

    Interview Details

    The interview process took a while, but partially because I was still in college while partaking in it. I applied for essentially anything software related, and after gathering information about me through the interviews and my coding test they gave me two options: Reporting Engineer and Integrated Engineer. The first interview was over the phone with an HR person, and the second phone interview was with a Software Developer. Next I had a written coding test that I was able to take on campus. Next I went to a day-long event at Epic that consisted of information sessions, a tour, a basic reading and problem solving test, and multiple interviews. Once that was complete I heard back in about a week with a very competitive offer.

    Interview Questions
    • I did not think anything was very difficult. The coding test was fairly straightforward and you are able to choose any language you wish. The worst thing about it is that you are just using a text editor, and are unable to check syntax or find stupid errors. However they seem to grade this leniently in that regard. All the interviewers were very nice and as long as you are somewhat prepared it is not difficult.   Answer Question
    Reasons for Declining

    I had two other offers. Epic offered the highest salary and best benefits, but what I heard about the company and working experience turned me away. Either employees love it or hate it, and most developers work very long hours and are encouraged to spend as much time on campus as possible. I heard it can be difficult to balance work and a social life. The company I interned with over the summer gave me an offer so I took that instead.

    Interview Details

    I received an e-mail requesting a phone interview. The phone interviewer asked random and weird questions like my SAT and GRE scores. I was then told I was going to take a skills assessment, which involved an analytical section and coding sections.

    I interviewed online - interviewed at Epic Systems Corporation in August 2014.

    Interview Details

    I applied online and was invited to a phone interview. The phone interview was pretty low-stress, mostly verifying info from your app and basic questions. Then I was invited to complete the online assessment which was longer and more involved than I had expected. I was just recently invited to an on-site interview.

    Technical Writer Interview

    Application Details

    I interviewed through a recruiter - interviewed at Epic Systems Corporation.

    Interview Details

    Online application didn't take very long, and the phone interview was low-stress. The interviewer was very friendly and informative; she was a technical writer and therefore able to provide specific details with regards to what the job entails. I was then required to take an online assessment, at which point your overall application is evaluated before Epic decides whether or not to extend an offer for an in-person interview at their campus.

    Project Manager/Implementation Consultant Interview

    Application Details

    I interviewed through an employee referral. The process took 3 weeks - interviewed at Epic Systems Corporation in October 2013.

    Interview Details

    I was referred by someone internally and Epic reached out to me and asked me to complete a quick questionnaire along with my resume. After about 5 days they reached out to schedule a phone screen which had multiple easy questions. Much of the phone interview was more their explanation of the company itself. After this, I was asked to complete a personality profile. About 5-7 days following this, I was asked to take an English & basic computer programming assessment. Being a business major with 0 computer background, this didn't go well for me and I was not asked to continue. I know the next and final step would have been a strenuous in-person interview at Epic for which they fly you out.

    Application Details

    I interviewed through an employee referral. The process took 4+ weeks - interviewed at Epic Systems Corporation in July 2014.

    Interview Details

    Had resume forwarded to HR by a friend who worked there. Filled out an online application, got a phone interview, where they basically asked about my resume and other personal information to understand who I was as a person.

    Next, I took an online assessment that basically gauged my ability to learn new concepts and the speed at which I learned them. After that they invited me to an in-person interview, which was a full day of meeting with employees, doing cases, meeting with HR, etc. (All expense paid).

    Finally, waited for an offer for about two weeks. Whole process took about a month.
