    Project Manager Interview

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

    I applied through college or university. The process took a dayinterviewed at Epic Systems Corporation in February 2010.

    Interview Details

    First a campus interview, then a phone interview, then they flew me in for a day to Madison. Had to give a presentation to a group, then take IQ and skills test, then some one on one interviews and a case study. Although I thought I was interviewing for a sales type of position, they gave me a programming test that I knew absolutely nothing about. The presentation, case study, and other tests went great but it went south when I interviewed with the HR woman and took the programming test. Although the company was impressive (the company campus is amazing), the company was way too informal for my liking and the position required WAY too much traveling. If you are a techie, you will probably love it but those I spoke to on the marketing side did not.

    Implementation Services Interview

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

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Epic Systems Corporation in March 2010.

    Interview Details

    Just as everyone else has mentioned. Phone interview, online personality test, flew me out to WI, gave me a one-on-one case study interview, I had to give a 10 min presentation, had a one-on-one behavioral interview with a recruiter, and a bunch of tests.

    Overall, I found their hiring process to be fairly ridiculous. First, I find the initial phone interviews to be a total waste of everyone's time. I was asked several questions I had already answered in my application, repetition of superficial details annoys me. The online personality test was a bunch of BS and could easily of been faked, assuming you have half of a brain.

    They flew me out, put me up in a hotel and bought me dinner. I opted to have dinner with an Epic employee and some other recruits. The Epic employee had zero personality, zero culture, zero style, seemed to have no idea what exactly healthcare was, immature, and well...useless. The other recruits were all still in college, immature, and fairly clueless. Not to mention had little to no personality. Also, I was annoyed at Epic's failure to pay for ancillary travel expenses (ie: airport parking). Other companies that have flown me around for interviews did just that, which is polite and the right thing to do for a poor graduate student with loans out the nose.

    One would make the assumption that putting recruits through this hiring process would find competent individuals capable of peddling a product in this field. However, I failed to meet a single Epic employee that would NOT be torn a new one should they be put in front of a physician. I'm not quite sure how they are in business! Anyways, I decided not to take the job. Epic does a great job of pampering their employees when they are at the "Intergalactic Headquarters," but the place just was not for me. It also seems like they constantly interview a steady stream of clueless college students who are entering the workforce yet have no intention of actually leaving their hardcore bing drinking ways for adult life.

    Project Manager Interview

    Application Details

    The process took 2+ monthsinterviewed at Epic Systems Corporation in February 2011.

    Interview Details

    I was contacted by Epic in December and was asked to submit an application for their project manager position. A month later I was given a phone interview, about two weeks later I was offered an in person interview in Madison. They flew me across the country and put me up in a nice hotel downtown covering all my expenses. The day of the interview I woke early and was taken by Cab to their headquarters, which is about 30 minutes away from downtown Madison. It began with a tour of the campus followed by a demonstration of their software after which we each began our interviews. The first interview was position specific, I cannot disclose the actual questions, but I can say you should treat the day as a marathon test but should not pose serious problems for those qualified. They followed up the first interview with a presentation to a group of young employees (most employees are young) which was basically to prove your communications skills. Lunch gave us a break followed by another round of interviews with HR, after which at the end of the day we began the exams, which last approximatively two hours. These exams make the interview process incredibly unique as after years of college and great grades (you need at least a 3.3 to even be considered) you must prove your intelligence they don't take it for granted. Finally you hand in your exam and they call you a cab. The whole day takes about 7 hours, and they say they will contact you in a week possibly two with their decision. Its been two full weeks for me and am still waiting for an answer, so don't expect a quick response they do have many, many candidates to consider.

    Software Developer Interview

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 6 weeksinterviewed at Epic Systems Corporation in March 2011.

    Interview Details

    1) Rembrandt Online Profile
    2) Phone Interview
    3) Skills Assessment ( About 2 hours to complete but speed and accuracy are factors )

    It was my very first interview as well as the skill assessment so I was really nervous and I didn't do well.
    I took the skills assessment at the school career center and it was paper-and-pencil based.
    It took me more time to write down clearly and edit them.

    Even though I didn't get the job, I got good impression from interview and hiring process.

    Administrative Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Verona, WI
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at Epic Systems Corporation in November 2010.

    Interview Details

    The phone interview was fine but as I read on several reviews that they clearly ask questions that would determine your age. The interview at Epic was LONG. The campus is amazing and there seems to be pretty awesome work perks. However, part of it almost seemed to good to be true. After a tour and a presentation, they have testing and a 1:1 interview. The 1:1 interview was pretty average. The testing, however, was VERY time consuming. It took around 3 or 4 hours? I don't even remember but it seemed like HOURS! One of the tests was clearly for people who would be working actual technical jobs so I was really put off by how I should try and complete it. After reading negative reviews, the testing and the long commute, I was no longer interested in the position. There are not opportunities for promotions or changing positions. Turn around seemed insane and it doesn't seem very good with work-life balance. Also, they require transcripts so lying about your GPA is a bad idea.

    The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Epic Systems Corporation in November 2011.

    Interview Details

    Most reviews already covered the relatively intense interview process. There is an intense computer-programming test, among other tests including English grammar, etc. If you have no computer programming experience, this test will be extremely difficult. The interview process is very intense and tiring, probably representative of the job itself. It is well organized though and you meet many people working there, and get to have lunch with an employee.
