I applied online and the process took 2+ weeks - interviewed at Epic Systems Corporation in October 2013.
Interview Details –
First had a one hour long phone interview. Was asked simple data structures questions (linked lists, BFS of Binary Tree, Hashes).
Just took a 3 hour long test for them as well. The first two sections were SAT type brain teasers and questions, third section was based off of a made up programming language, and the fourth section was 4 problem problems that took about 30 minutes each.
Interview Question – Word Search: Given an NxN grid of characters and a word to find, find all instances of that word and print out a list of the coordinates of each character in the word. Answer Question
Interviewed at Epic Systems Corporation
Interview Details – Was contacted by them to submit an updated application, which I did. I then was asked to do a phone interview. Pretty straight forward, asked me about my past experience and then a general question about creating a calendar system. Was emailed back to take the online test that everyone else has mentioned. Got an email a couple weeks later letting me know that they would be moving on to other candidates.
Interview Question – The most difficult question was the coding part of the online test Answer Question
I applied through college or university and the process took 8 weeks - interviewed at Epic Systems Corporation in October 2013.
Interview Details – After you submit an application, you will be contacted for a phone interview and later on for online screening (skills and personality tests). The skills test is proctored online. You may be contacted afterwards for an on-site interview, which includes an overview of the company, your role, etc.
Interview Question – Perhaps the most unexpected component of the on-site interview was the Technical Services Case Study. You are presented with maybe 3 or 4 issues that you might face on a typical workday and asked how you would address each of them. Answer Question
I interviewed at Epic Systems Corporation in October 2013.
Interview Details – Overall I thought the process was very thorough. The initial personality profile was interesting and pretty straight forward. The next step of a phone interview consisted of pretty basic questions with a current project manager. The programming test was a little difficult. I'd recommend brushing up on some basic math!
Interview Question – I thought the programming test was a bit difficult. In a way it was similar to the math section of the GRE. Answer Question

Interview Details – The first interview was easy they asked how to go about finding correlations between n groups of viruses. I used a nxn array. They then asked what if memory was constrained so I said hash map. The second interview was a little harder and you need to know recursion. First you were asked to do a method where you take in a number and print the first ten terms of a sequence which shows the number of numbers such as 11 then youd have 21 then 1211 then 111221 ect then last question was hardest you had to say how to take one string and get another string using only letter flips like bad to bda to dba to dab.

I applied through college or university and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Epic Systems Corporation in October 2013.
Interview Details – I had given resume during career fair. The entire process took 2 weeks. I got the call for a phone interview and it was more like confirming things written on my resume. After that, they ask for skills test which is of around 3 hours. Finally onsite interview where you need to discuss about anyone project you are most excited about.
Interview Question – Not really. All were straight forward except the skills test. Lot of tricky and some difficult programming test. Answer Question
Negotiation Details – They dont do negotiation
I applied online and the process took 4+ weeks - interviewed at Epic Systems Corporation in September 2013.
Interview Details –
They are fairly unfocused when they bring you for an interview as to what role would fit.
The roles are:
Dev- builds the software, Comp sci or similar grads only, 50k/yr->who knows, depends on skill, 45-55hr/wk, stress depends on assignment, 'upper crust' works on design
QA- tests the software, 40k/year with slow raises, 42hrs/wk, low stress, low prestige
TS- babysits customers with up-and-running deployments, sci or tech majors only, 53k/yr with medium raises, 45-55hrs/wk, stress varies wildly depending on assignment, medium-low prestige
IS- deploys software to new customers, ambitious and accomplished grads only, 53k/yr with high bonuses and fast raises, 45-50hrs/wk at home, travels up to half the time, 55-80hrs/wk when traveling, stress on the high side but varies by assignment, high prestige
Those are the high volume hiring roles. There are other smaller roles I don't know enough about for intelligent comment.
There is an SAT-like intelligence test with verbal, quantitative, and pseudo-code programming sections. It takes about 1.5 hours altogether and is not grueling but is very tricky. Much of the interview day is spent giving you a feel for the company and the setting, and inviting you to consider which role would fit you best.
Some standard stuff, behavioral questions, discussion of your past accomplishments, etc.
Interview Question – Being asked outright what role you want. I think this gets considered pretty strongly unless they feel you are a poor fit for one or more, because the pluses and minuses of each cancel out well. Have a plan for how to answer it, with the salary and lifestyle you want in mind. Answer Question
Negotiation Details – No negotiation invited, I didn't try but imagine it would be shot down with no negative effect unless you were a jerk. Starting salary is 38k, bumped to 40k upon completion of 6-mo regs (usually at 3 mos), raises of about 2-3% per year.
Interviewed at Epic Systems Corporation
Interview Details –
I submitted a resume after the school job fair and one week later I got an email to schedule an assessment test. The assessment test had four sections: programming, 2 minute section, math and 20 questions.
The programming section had 4 questions. One was about the chess. Two were about finding passwords, and I could not remember the last one.
The 2-minute section had 10 logical questions to be solved in 2 minutes. I did not finish all of them because of the limited time. All of them were basic logic problems.
The math section had 14 questions, and had pretty easy ones too, but 2 questions confused me.
Finally, the 20-question section introduced a new programming language. It was easy, but there were many tricky questions. You have to read carefully for every question.

I applied through college or university - interviewed at Epic Systems Corporation in October 2013.
Interview Details – Talked to university recruiter at career fair, got email requesting a phone interview within the next week. Phone interview consisted mostly of him telling me what Epic was like and asking me if I had any questions in particular. One technical question that is mostly aimed at seeing how you approach a problem and what steps you take to solve it.
Interview Question – If you had to design a database that stored clients' records based solely off of a list of conditions and whether or not the patient is at risk for a heart attack (think boolean flag where True = at risk and False = not at risk), how would you design it and how would you prioritize things?
