I applied online and the process took 2+ weeks - interviewed at Epic Systems Corporation in December 2013.
Interview Details – Applied online, got an email for a phone interview. After phone interview, flew out the their HQ for a day of interviews. Was one of the easiest interviews I've ever had. The "case question" was pretty much a joke, but then again I have done TONS of case interviews for management consulting interviews.
Interview Question – Nothing unexpected Answer Question
I applied through an employee referral - interviewed at Epic Systems Corporation in January 2014.
Interview Details – The process is really streamlined, and the HR people stay in constant contact throughout the process. Might be that they just pump a lot of people through it. Regardless, the other reviews are spot on as to what the process is. Application submit, 30 min telephone 'interview', assessment (on-line), and then on sight.
I applied through an employee referral and the process took 3+ months - interviewed at Epic Systems Corporation in December 2012.
Interview Details – The process has several parts. First the initial application is pretty standard but includes sending an academic record if applying directly out of school. After this you are required to take an off site knowledge / aptitude test that for me was administered at my local library. If that goes well then they do a phone interview and finally invite you to their campus for an in person interview provided all the previous rounds go well.
Interview Question – One question you should be prepared to answer both during the phone interview and while on site is what is the thing that frustrates you most. View Answer

Reason for Declining – Wasn't the best choice for me
I applied through college or university and the process took 2+ weeks - interviewed at Epic Systems Corporation in November 2013.
Interview Details – I received an email from a recruiter. Got one round phone interview and talked with a developer. Heard back from them 3 days ago and scheduled an assessment. I felt the assessment was not hard. The programming part was ok. The math part and new language part were kind of tricky.
Interview Question – How to determine if there are any automobiles in a picture taking on a intersection? It's an open question. Answer Question
I applied through other source and the process took 6 weeks - interviewed at Epic Systems Corporation in December 2013.
Interview Details – The recruitment process started many months earlier when I received a message through LinkedIn encouraging me to apply. Eventually I did and was contacted very shortly after to begin the process.
I had an HR phone screen to determine basic eligibility. The only weird thing about that was that they were obsessed with my GPA and SAT scores. I did not get my undergrad in the US and explained this to them. We moved on.
I was "invited" to take 3 hours worth of online assessments (uncompensated) and did. They were mostly math and logic with a few programming exercises (pseudocode so they could evaluate non-technical candidates with the same process). Later in the week I received notice that I would need to take their personality assessment in the next 48 hours in order to proceed. I did and ultimately was invited to Verona, WI for an on-site interview.
The night before the interview there was a group dinner set up with fellow candidates and an Epic employee. The other candidates weren't competition so it was relaxed and comfortable. It was a great way to see a little bit of the city too.
The next day was interview day and the taxi took me and other candidates out to campus. It's definitely an impressive campus and very modern looking. At least three times during the day there were people who showed up and gave us yet another campus tour!
The interviews went well. I had been asked to give a presentation (apparently all applicants are) and since I'm an educator it was easy to present an engaging topic. Turns out the hiring manager made the mistake of giving me her copy of the agenda which had her notes on the back from my presentation! It said "great opening", "good structure", "excellent question answering", etc. so I felt pretty good.
We wrapped up the day with a typical HR session asking what my salary expectations were. Since this was the very first time I was asked I assumed that they were price inflexible. When I asked what range the position paid, I was told that it's a wide range so I quoted less than I was making, knowing that the cost of living is less in WI. All seemed good. I was again confused that they asked for transcripts from my university (I graduated 20 years ago), but I provided them plus references.
Throughout the process, the HR logistics team were great.
I was surprised when I abruptly received a phone call telling me "we had to make a difficulty decision but we're going to proceed with other candidates". The message was left to voicemail so I emailed back asking for clarification on two points: would I be considered for other opportunities at Epic and was there feedback they could share that would make me better?
That was what turned this otherwise positive experience sour. Keep in mind I've done several hours of uncompensated assessments, I interrupted my holiday vacation to come to Wisconsin, it was them that reached out to me to encourage me to apply.
HR's response to my question was that I could apply again but I "should wait 2-3 months to see if their requirements change". What does that mean? I don't even know why I didn't get the job?!? And that "Epic receives 130,000 resumes a year from highly-qualified applicants and we only hire the top 1% so they won't give specific feedback". This seemed very unprofessional to me. Tell me you were looking for a more technical person, or someone with more healthcare industry experience. Lie to me! But to give me some rhetoric about how Epic is such a great place that they don't have to give feedback to their applicants? I've worked for several high-tech companies and never experienced that.

Interview Details – Applied online (short, basic questions), attached resume and cover letter
Heard back from HR within the week, set up phone interview.
Phone interview <30 minutes, with a current employee that mostly introduced himself and the company, very pleasant to talk to. Asked me about my interests and some stuff on my resume. Next, received the Rembrandt profile assessment and other skills assessments (mostly logic reasoning, grammar, SAT math type of questions).
Got a phone call the next day that I received an on-site interview with Epic!
Still waiting for the email confirmation to set up travel dates.

After a year working here, I became a Team Lead and was running projects of upwards of 20 people. This can be a con too (see cons) but in terms of career development, Epic gave me fantastic skills in a short amount of time. 3) The standards for hiring at Epic are absurdly high. This means you'll be consistently working with extraordinarily smart people. Motivation levels vary, but in general those people are committed to their jobs and doing well at them. 4) It's always mentioned, but the food is fantastic. I miss the cafeteria so much. 5) Breadth of opportunities out there is great. One day, you might be presenting to 100 people, the next working with VBA Macros in Excel, the next testing a new database report. Epic stresses that 'your career is what you make it' and this is absolutely true for the company. 6) The Team Leads for QA are a really strong group with excellent leadership. 7) The culture here is a double-edged sword, (see hours, etc.), but in general is a really positive force on work experience. I felt proud to work for Epic, and do the work I was doing.” – Full Review
