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.
Interview Question – 5 things you are not Answer Question
Negotiation Details – No negotiation
I applied through college or university and interviewed at Epic Systems Corporation.
Interview Details – I submitted my resume through my school but also had to apply through the Epic's career page as well. There's a simple test that you have to take that is about 2-3 hours long. After a week, I got an e-mail to arrange a phone interview. The 30-minute phone interview took me to Epic headquarters at Verona where I spent the whole day touring through the campus and had 3 one-on-one interviews.
Interview Question – I can't remember any question being too difficult as they didn't require any technical knowledge. I remember most of them being simple behavioral questions that are used to test your fit. In short, I didn't make that fit. Answer Question
I applied through college or university and interviewed at Epic Systems Corporation.
Interview Details – I received an email from Epic, they were referred to me by my university's career website. I don't have a strong background in programming, so it was refreshing to be contact by a company. At first, they wanted me to fill out their application, then I got a phone interview. Afterward, I received an email from the recruiter to schedule the next portion of the interview, which was assessment tests. The assessment tests weren't too bad, I feel like I went too slow on them and they emailed me saying they are moving on with other candidates.
Interview Question – Where do you see yourself in five years? Answer Question
I applied online and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Epic Systems Corporation in December 2013.
Interview Details – Everyone was very efficient, it felt a bit like a cattle-call with so many people interviewing at once for the same position.
Interview Question – What would you do if your team lead wants to do something which you disagree with? What would you do if you want to take an action but your team disagrees with you. Answer Question
I applied online and the process took 4+ weeks - interviewed at Epic Systems Corporation in October 2013.
Interview Details – I applied through their website, a couple days later received an email to schedule a phone interview. Had a phone interview with a person currently working in QA. Basically she just told me about the job, asked why I was interested in the position, and reviewed information I'd already provided on my application (SAT scores, GPA, etc).
After that I was invited to take a test online. They make you have a proctor for the test via Skype. It's awkward. But the test wasn't too bad. There were four sections, one was a two-minute IQ test, one was math, one involved learning a fake programming language and basically just tested your ability to think programmatically, and the other one was an actual programming test. I don't think they usually give QA interviewees the programming test, but I have background in the area so I think that was why I had that part. It took about two hours. A few days later I got an email inviting me to fly out to Verona and interview on site.
There was a dinner with some Epic employees and other candidates the day before the interview day. The actual interview day's really casual, you don't have to dress up. They do an overview of the company, you talk to someone in the position, then you have lunch with Epic people in their cafeteria. After that I had an interview with another QA guy, a verbal test, and a generic HR interview. Very long process, all in all.

Interview Details – Very nice people, beautiful facility. Interviews were laid back.
Interview Question – case interview and behavioral interview Answer Question
I applied online and the process took 4+ weeks - interviewed at Epic Systems Corporation in November 2012.
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.
I applied through a recruiter and the process took 1+ week - interviewed at Epic Systems Corporation in October 2013.
Interview Details – Applied Monday, tested Thursday, Phone interview the following Wednesday. Test was similar to an ACT/SAT. Accuracy based and speed based so answer questions as quickly and as accurately as you can. Recruiter came to campus last week and talked a little about their open positions. There are not many positions open that are non-tech.
Interview Question – What made you choose your selected major? Answer Question
I applied online and the process took 3 months - interviewed at Epic Systems Corporation in November 2011.
Interview Details – After submitting an online application I was emailed a link to a personality test. Approximately 3 months after submitting my application I was called to schedule a phone interview. A few weeks after the phone interview my 1st on-site interview was scheduled. Another 6 weeks later I had a 2nd on-site interview. The 1st interview is a tour of the campus, lunch with a current employee who holds a position in the role you are applying for followed by some tests (math/english/programming). The 2nd round of interviews is conducted by approximately 3-4 current employees back to back (1 on 1).
Interview Question – Generic interview questions. Answer Question
Negotiation Details – No negotiations. They only offer starts on the 1st Monday of each month.
I applied through college or university and the process took 4+ weeks - interviewed at Epic Systems Corporation in January 2013.
Interview Details – I took an online personality test and gave them my resume, unofficial transcript, and possibly a cover letter. Within a week, I was contacted for a short phone interview, and then was invited to an on-site interview. Overall, I think it was a pretty quick turn around, probably took a little over a month.
Interview Question – List 5 weaknesses Answer Question
Reason for Declining – I liked Epic, but I wasn't sure about Wisconsin, the specific position I had been offered, and I was more interested in a job in the legal industry. This was a backup. If I had been offered a job as a project manager (and the extra pay/travel) I might have accepted.
