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 Details – Met a recruiter at a career fair--he set me up with a phone interview a few weeks later. The phone interviewer asked me about a past project I worked on, what I learned from it, what was the most challenging problem I had to solve--questions of that nature. Then, he asked me an open-ended technical question about building an application on Google Glass. It didn't require any coding; I just described on a higher level how I'd use the hardware to design this application. I was then offered an on-site interview, which I found strange as I had not done anything technical on my phone interview.
The on-site interview was very accommodating. They placed me in the Madison Concourse hotel and I had dinner with an Epic employee the two nights I was in Madison.
The interview itself was very long. Mine began at 8:45AM and I left the headquarters at around 4PM. The technical aspect of the interview was all done on a computer. They had a coding section, a quick 20 questions section, a math section, and a reasoning section that involved slowly being introduced to a new programming language and answering questions about it.
Since the coding part is done on the computer, it could really hurt candidates who don't remember a small piece of syntax.
The math section had brain teaser questions. I did not know companies still asked these kinds of questions--the use of dated interview questions reflected badly on me.
The other "interview' portion of my visit was a 20 minute interview with an employee about a project I had done. It was informal and pretty casual.

I applied through a recruiter and the process took 5 weeks - interviewed at Epic Systems Corporation in October 2012.
Interview Details – I initially spotted Epic at an internship fair at my university. They asked about my GPA as well as my SAT/ACT scores. One of their first questions was something along the lines of "What percentage of the time are you willing to travel?" Which I thought was interesting for a software company, but all full-time employees are required to participate in immersion trips to help educate you on how the end-user is actually using the software. (I think it's a great idea). and some positions in the company do require a lot of travel. Anyways, so I left my resume and was later contacted to take a qualifying test, a 3 hour exam with subjects of math, learning a new programming language, and 4 coding problems. They tried calling me twice to do what I assume would have been a phone interview, but I was in class both times and they didn't leave a message. A week later I got an e-mail asking when would be the best time for them to fly me to Wisconsin for on-site interviews. They flew me out, got me a hotel room, covered all of the costs, and I had an enjoyable interview process there. The first night an Epic employee gave me and two other applicants a brief tour of Madison and took us to dinner. The next day, there was an interview with a developer which was more of less what you'd expect. There was a "group interview" which really was just a setting for applicants to ask a developer any questions they might have about the job, company, etc. There was also an interview with HR going over the basic HR sorts of questions. They also gave us a tour of the campus, and it really is amazing and beautiful.
Interview Question – At the end of the HR interview they gave me a 2 minute quiz. There was a page with 10 math questions on it, and you had exactly 2 minutes to do as much as you could. View Answer
Negotiation Details – They made me an excellent offer which I accepted. The only thing that was more unique to my situation was that in addition to a great pay, they put all of the interns in The Regency, located in downtown Madison. I opted to take the $700 living stipend and find housing of my own closer to Epic.
I applied through college or university and the process took 2 days - interviewed at Epic Systems Corporation in November 2012.
Interview Details – I was invited to Epic's Campus for an interview about 2-3 weeks after their recruiter had visitied my University and I took some of their tests. (Programming, Math, and Logic). They flew me out to Madison/Verona for a couple days; 1 was spent exploring the city and surrounding area (my choice, self-lead), and the other was spent doing the all-day event that is the interview process. I was in a group of probably 50-75 other candidates being interviewed that day. Some of the day was spent seeing demos of their software, talking about what interns get to do during their time working, and having actual one-on-one interviews with other software developers. Dress code was as relaxed as I've heard. No suits, no ties. T-Shirt, cargo shorts, and sandals are perfectly acceptable. I was regularly offered snacks and refreshments which were readily available just about anywhere.
The best way I would describe the process is very warm and friendly. It didn't feel like an interview at all; like they were more focused on getting me to like them instead of vice-versa.
Interview Question – I don't think any were unexpected or difficult. They'll ask you about past project experience. They'll prompt you to go into the details of your personal design and development process. Nothing I hadn't expected, and nothing that wasn't reasonable to be asked. Answer Question
Negotiation Details – They made me an offer, and while I was deciding they asked me to keep them informed if I received any competing offers. I did receive some, but none that compared to Epic's offer.
