I applied through college or university and the process took 6 weeks - interviewed at Epic Systems Corporation in September 2013.

Interview Details – I caught their attention when they came to my campus for an on-site career fair. Their phone interview wasn't too difficult either - there weren't any coding questions.

However, the more annoying part of their interview process came a little afterwards. Some of the few things that bothered me the most was that they wanted my high school GPA and my ACT / SAT score.... which wouldn't bother me so much if I wasn't in college already.

Their online assessment wasn't any better either. The math portion of the online assessment made me feel even more insulted; it seemed to be annoying algebra or word questions people would ask middle schoolers.

However, once those were over, the on site interview was fantastic. They made me feel extremely welcome, and I can definitely tell it's one of the best places to work at.

Interview Question – Suppose you have a set of patients in the United States of who are at risk of heart attacks. Each person has a device on them that returns a set of 15 boolean values, each value corresponding to a risk factor for heart attacks. (You don't need to understand the hardware implementation of this device, just understand that it works.)

Describe a database that will help doctors understand when a patient is most likely at risk of a heart attack.

Difficult Interview

Software Engineer Intern Interview

Anonymous Interview Candidate

I applied through college or university and the process took 3 weeks - interviewed at Epic Systems Corporation.

Interview Details – First I did a phone screening which wasn't that hard. Some technical questions about how you did your projects and what would you do if you were to do that project again.

Then came the skill assessment test, which was harder. There were math and programming question. The math wasn't that bad, however the programming ones were tiring. Basically I needed to code 4 programs in 4 hours, however, completion time would also be considered.

I passed the skill assessment test and was invited for final onsite interview. Had a nice lunch and talked to smart people there, and finally talked with the HR. I mentioned several stupid things during the last part of the onsite interview, like how I would leave Epic after 3 years if I got the job (don't do that!).

Didn't get the offer and moved on.

Interview Question – Given a integer, which is the length of a string containing numbers, give a complete permutation of strictly increasing numbers.   View Answer

I applied through college or university and the process took 3 weeks - interviewed at Epic Systems Corporation in September 2013.

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.

Very Easy Interview

Software Engineer Intern Interview

Anonymous Interview Candidate

I applied online and the process took 2 months - interviewed at Epic Systems Corporation in March 2012.

Interview Details – The process was standardized.
The first step was a screening phone interview. The call was about verifying information on the resume, technical interests, etc. Took about half an hour.
The second step was a skills test at a test center of your choice. The alloted time was 5-6 hours. You can very well complete the test in under 2.5 hours. I feel that the skills test plays a decisive role in the selection process because interns donot have a strong technical interview. This phase would take upto 2 weeks for the results.
The third step was the onsite interview. It takes about half a day with a tour of Epic. A presentatino of what Epic does. An informal chat with an employee. A 1:1 talk with an employee about a challenging project what we had worked on. Last , but also one the most important part, the HR interview. The questions are a bit tricky. The Hr will try to test your personality.As a part of the HR interview there is a 2 mins skills test.
