I applied through an employee referral and the process took 2 days - interviewed at Epic Systems Corporation in March 2013.
Interview Details – They paid for my flight out, hotel, cabs, meals, etc. Were very organized and communicative leading up to and during my visit. They planned a whole day for recruits (there were a lot of us) which included interviews, presentations, tours, and Q&A sessions. They definitely treated us well and made the company look desirable. As a writer recruit, I had to take some writing tests. For the Trainer position, I had to do a presentation on how to do something. I thought both of those went very well, as well as my interviews, but didn't get the job. Got no feedback on why I wasn't hired but everyone I dealt with treated me very well. Would've worked for them, but not bitter that I wasn't hired.
Interview Question – Even for the writer position, had to take math skills test. Answer Question
I applied online and the process took 4+ weeks - interviewed at Epic Systems Corporation.
Interview Details – Fairly easy and laid-back interview. Online assessment/behavioral quiz, phone interview, on-campus interview (lasts all day) with multiple interviews and a tour of the facilities. They give everyone a weird programming test, so be expecting that even if you are not going for a programming role. All-in-all it was a long but fun day.

Negotiation Details – No negotiation
I applied through college or university and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Epic Systems Corporation in January 2012.
Interview Details – SUMMARY: My impression of Epic was that they were a college recruitment machine, hiring young and inexperienced employees, working them to death and then replacing the burnouts with more fresh, naive faces.
I was offered an interview at Epic after having a conversation with a company recruiter at a college career fair––what position I would be interviewing for was not yet clear. I was flown out to Madison WI, put up in a nice hotel room and then joined a dozen other college students the next morning to be driven out to the corporate campus by a company shuttle.
I felt like I was touring and interviewing at a college all over again. Applicants were put in groups (they see at least 200 applicants each day), then given a structured itinerary. We were lead around Epic's mammoth corporate campus, ate in their cafeteria, sat for interviews, gave presentations to a panel, took exams in rudimentary math and programming (even for non-programmers). We would be dropped off at their huge recruiting office between each itinerary item, then picked up for the next by some other chaperone.
My recruiter was cold and uninterested. My interview with her was dull and the conversation lifeless despite my best attempts.
I left with a an uneasy impression. Epic claims that they don't do any marketing, that "advertising sucks." Maybe they don't market to customers, but they sure as hell are marketing to college recruits. Just look at their company website and then compare it with their careers site. I felt uncomfortable with a company that seemed to put more effort into hiring employees than building their product. In fact, not once during my visit to Epic was I even shown their product. Never. I honestly didn't even mind when I got a call a few weeks later that I had been turned down for the job.
Interview Question – Nothing difficult or unexpected. Just plain old boring questions. Answer Question
I applied through college or university and the process took 3+ weeks - interviewed at Epic Systems Corporation in February 2014.
Interview Details – First off - getting your resume to a recruiter at a Job fair fast-tracks the process. I was contacted via email to complete my online application. After that was a brief phone interview. Then online assessment tests were administered that were fairly difficult. In my case, I first applied for a quality assurance position in November and was told I wouldn't go any further in the process. But when I submitted another online application in February, I was told to further complete it, then invited in for an in-person, on-site interview for both positions (educational trainer and project implementer). It was from 9:30-3:30, but despite the length, there were relaxing components like lunch and a tour to take the edge off the day.
I'm assuming they have more availability in the spring than fall/winter so I would advise applying then.
Interview Question – The questions were rather easy in my case, but I've heard a difficult one is "Tell me 5 things you are not." View Answer
I applied online and the process took 3 weeks - interviewed at Epic Systems Corporation.
Interview Details – Applied online. Was contacted within a week and set up a phone interview. Phone interview was really laid back and was just basically a review of the information on your resume and any questions you may have about the position. About a week later was asked to take an online assessment. Afterwards I was emailed back saying they were going to continue on without me.
I applied through an employee referral and the process took 2 months - interviewed at Epic Systems Corporation in February 2014.
Interview Details – Starting in december I applied through an employee referral. A week later I received an email to schedule a phone interview. The phone interview was very relaxed, and more for them to get a feel for you, not your skills. They asked about things on my resume, but more to hear how I spoke about them.
A few days after submitting my test I was scheduled for an onsite interview. They fly you out, put you in a nice hotel, take you to diner all the night before. The actual onsite interview was really relaxing to me. I was told at dinner that if you're flown out the company is 75% sure they want you. Now they just want to make sure you're a good fit for the culture. As far as what you do:
Interview with someone who is in the position you're applied for (project manager in my case) this was pretty standard interview with some fluffer HR questions.
Give a 10 minute presentation on a topic of your choosing. expect questions and be confident.
Receive a 30 minute demo of the software.
Receive an overview of the job position you're applied to.
Take a tour of campus/eat lunch.
Have a case study interview.. less business oriented, more ethics and how to handle an angry client.
Have an interview with HR and that's it.
they don't want to see you stiff and boring. For project management you are expected to be traveling with your coworkers 75% of the time.. no one wants to be stuck in ORD for 5 hours with a genius that can't hold a conversation about something other than work or studies.

Negotiation Details – I did not try to negotiate as the job was a huge step up from my current position.
I applied online and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Epic Systems Corporation.
Interview Details – I applied online and got a response fairly quickly. I'm abroad so they scheduled a phone interview with me. He asked normal questions, probably just for screening. After the interview, I was emailed asking to do a skills test and Rembrandt profile.
I stopped the process there as I do not plan on working 60 or sometimes 80 hours a week for the same income while traveling all over.

I applied online and the process took 4 weeks - interviewed at Epic Systems Corporation in February 2014.
Interview Details – Phone interview asked basic questions about yourself and educational background as well as told you interesting information about the position, Epic's campus and Verona. I was also asked to complete three writing prompts prior to the phone interview. This was then followed by a difficult assessment exam and personality test.
I applied through college or university and the process took 4+ weeks - interviewed at Epic Systems Corporation.
Interview Details – I applied through a career fair held at my university.
First round was a phone screen, which was a "get to know you better" sort of interview.
Second round was a timed online skills test (I believe you can take them offline as well), which tested programming knowledge, learning ability, quick thinking, and outside of the box thinking. This round was the toughest part, but I thought it was pretty enjoyable overall. There is not much you can prepare for, which is a sign of a good test.
Third and final round was an on-site interview. If you've gotten this far, you're pretty much guaranteed a position (as long as you don't screw up). Epic flies you out to their headquarters and gives you a pretty nice tour of their facility. There is a really simple one on one interview where you're asked to describe a project you've worked on.
Once complete, you should hear back within two weeks.
Interview Question – There is a section on the skills test that requires you to think outside of the box. Answer Question
