Application

I applied online. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at Epic Systems Corporation (Madison, WI) in April 2015.

Interview

The first process is the phone interview, the questions are all quite simple, and introduce one of your projects listed on your resume, maybe there will have some technical questions, maybe not.

Then is the Online Assessment, the OA will focus on critical thinking, math, and programming skills.
After the OA, is the onsite, this is the last step.

    I applied through college or university. The process took 3 daysinterviewed at Epic Systems Corporation in March 2015.

    Interview

    The interview process are the same as described by other users.
    First round is phone interview. The interviewer asked what is your favorite project, how do you expect your ideal job to be. No technical questions were asked.
    Second round is the online assessment of four parts: two parts of math, one part of new programming language learning, and one part of coding. The first three parts are not hard, but the coding part is time consuming. I thought I did well, but still got rejected, maybe because I took too much time to do the coding.

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 5 weeksinterviewed at Epic Systems Corporation.

    Interview

    One phone interview that last for less than an hour and one online assessment test.
    After giving my resume to them, i was declined after two weeks.
    the online assessment test was easy and the interview went really well. They just told me that nothing about why i didn't get the internship.
    One of my friend gets it, but it was nonsense. I majored in computer science and math. I was really good at everything. I am better than most of them. But they just declined me.
    It was nothing, because i got offer from google and amazon later on.
    I know i might be overqualified for them and they are afraid to take me.

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at Epic Systems Corporation in January 2015.

    Interview

    1) Submit online application: submit resume and transcript online
    2) Phone Screen: The interviewer will ask you non-technical questions. Be prepared for questions like Why Epic? Describe your project and what challenges did you face? What would you do differently if you had a second chance? At the end, the interviewer will allow you to ask him/her questions.
    3) Online assessment: This one is very very tiring. Be mentally prepared for 3-4 hours long online assessment proctored by ProctorU. There are four sections. 1) 2 minute math/iq test 2) math/brain teaser test 3) in this section, they teach you a new programming language (they are confusing and quite different from common languages like C, Java, C++, etc.) and you will be asked to determine the output given the syntax. 4)This one is programming test. For Com Sci major, you are expected to use C,Java, C++. For non-Com Sci, you can these languages or others like Python, Ruby, etc. (They will give you a list of program languages allowed. They recycle questions, most of which can be found in CareerCup.com)

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at Epic Systems Corporation (Madison, WI) in February 2014.

    Interview

    Very long. First there's a phone call which was pretty standard. Next there's a proctored online test involving some math, logic, and programming. The math questions were easy but very brainteaser-y, which was annoying. The on-site interview was more of just showing you around campus, with only one real interview type component.

    Interview

    The interviewer asked me the worst question to start off a phone interview: Where do you see yourself in 5 years. It seems he had a list with him that he was sticking to. The conversation was not stimulating and that rather made it hard for me. He kept telling me about what Epic does in their work. The details which did not pertain to my position.

    They gave me a phone interview asking about details about my personal things and also background information. They asked me about the willingness to relocate to Wisconsin Madison. It took almost thirty to forty five minutes. Later, the interviewer asked a question about how do you solve a Sudoku game.
