Application Details

I applied online. The process took 4 weeksinterviewed at Epic Systems Corporation.

Interview Details

Applied online and was contacted within a week or so. The next steps included a 30 min phone interview and an online assessment. The online assessment was mostly problem solving (word problems and math) and some coding as well. A next or so later I was invited for an on site interview. I'm currently at this stage in the interview process.

    I applied online – interviewed at Epic Systems Corporation.

    Interview Details

    I applied through their website after seeing their software being used in a hospital. They responded with a behavioral test and a proctored online test, which was broken up into sections. They also scheduled a phone interview.

    After the tests and the interview, they informed me that they were considering me for a different role (I had originally applied to be a Project Manager). I sent in another application, and they scheduled an on-site interview.

    They took care of the flights and lodgings, and I met some other applicants at the hotel. We went to dinner with a current employee, which was very relaxed and fun. The next day, I went out at the scheduled time to the actual campus, which was about 20 minutes out of Madison. We had a quick introduction and presentation about Epic, then we went to talk to a current Technical Services person about the position. Next, I had a "case study" about customer service and prioritizing urgent issues. Then, we went to lunch in their cafeteria and went on a tour of some of the campus (it's huge, and they're continuously expanding). After the tour I had an interview with an HR representative. Lastly, I had a programming assessment. I am not a programmer, so this was somewhat difficult for me, but it was not timed and you could just write pseudocode. It was not multiple choice like the proctored exam.

    Still waiting to hear about an offer.

    Interview Details

    It is a phone interview. The first 1/3 is about me and my resume. The next 1/3 is about TS and HR's experience at Epic. The last part is about me asking questions. HR really expects my questions, so it is important to have some interesting things about Epic in your mind.

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at Epic Systems Corporation.

    Interview Details

    I was first contacted by them through my university's career services. Then I applied online, and set up a phone interview for a few days later. After that I took the online exam, which wasn't too bad. The coding section was a little rough, but as long as you write some understandable code you should be good.

    About two days later I was invited on site for an interview. The campus was beautiful, I had never seen anything like that. Being there you just got a very motivating type of feel. The interview started pretty early and consisted of a software demo, a interview with client systems (I was also interviewing for that position), lunch, a chat with a TS person, a tour, case study, grammar assessment and an exit interview with HR.

    It was a great experience and everything that they wanted from me throughout the entire process was very clear.

    I applied through college or university – interviewed at Epic Systems Corporation.

    Interview Details

    Focused on personality questions. They give a tour of the campus and have two main interviews mixed in. The first interview was you were given a typical day of work. You walk and have three messages. You discuss your approach, who would contact first, and why. The next interview focused on what your good and bad qualities are. We also discussed what how you would act in different team situations.

    Interview Details

    Applied via career fair at school, got a phone interview and online test. The coding part of the test is not very easy for a non programmer, but the other sections are fine. Then I got invited to a on-site interview. The on-site schedule is well organized but packed up. There will be interviews with a technical service employee, a grammar test and a interview with the HR.

    I applied online – interviewed at Epic Systems Corporation in February 2015.

    Interview Details

    I applied online and a few days later was emailed by HR asking to schedule a 30min phone interview. The phone interviewer was a person in the Technical Services division, not an HR representative. He asked questions about my resume, a few behavioural questions, and provided me with more details about the HR process. I was able to ask about the company and the position. Less than a week later I recieved instructions for the online assessment.

    Still waiting to continue in the process.

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeksinterviewed at Epic Systems Corporation in February 2015.

    Interview Details

    I discovered about Epic during a campus recruiting visit and applied online. They responded very fast (2-3 days) and quickly setup a phone interview that week. Phone interview was pretty basic; essentially background information about the job and your resume.resume. Next I was contacted do to a technical assessment exam where there were 4 parts: a quick answer section, Math/problem solving section, a technical learning question and programming section. The only section that seemed difficult was the programming section, partly because I don't have much experience in that area. Next is an on site interview. They are fast with the job process and respond quickly

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at Epic Systems Corporation.

    Interview Details

    The overall interview, to me, consists of total of three rounds:
    1) Phone screening/interview
    2) Online assessment
    3) On-site interview

    Everything happened to me relatively fast; from first applying to getting an offer only took me exactly one month. HR responded my emails very quickly and were very nice and helpful along the entire process.

    Applied at the beginning of December for software developer, heard back from the HR the next day about setting up for a phone interview, but for TS. The phone interview was just some basic behavioral questions and going over your resume. The interviewer (a TS employee) will answer any questions you have towards the company and job, go over the basic duties of the position you apply for and make sure you still want to continue in the applying process.

    Two days later, received an email to take an online-proctored assessments. I was freaking out about this test because I heard it can be hard. And like the others say, you can't really prepare for this. I think as long as you have some background in coding (I did MATLAB in Freshman year and that was it), you should be fine. If not, read some basic pseudo code introduction and you should be able to pass this round. The assessments consists of a speed test on math, math, verbal, introduction of a new programming language and the actual programming part. Only the first section has a two-minute limit and the rest is based on your accuracy and speed. I would recommend spend no more than three hours and no, you wouldn't know your score at the end.

    Two days after the assessment, I was invited to the on-site interview. They put me and a bunch of recruits in a very nice hotel, all expenses paid(including everything you eat during the trip!). Got there the day before my interview and had a dinner with some Epic employees, it was super relaxed and they'd answer all your questions.

    My interview started around 10. There was a demo showing the software, a tour around a small portion of the huge campus of Epic, a casual meeting and Q&A with a TS, lunch, some more verbal test, a case study, and a wrap-up interview with HR. The schedule was really tight but nothing really technical. All the interview questions can be found here on Glassdoor so I won't repeat them. Just be really nice and proactive in your tone and you should be more than fine. And you don't need to wear suit and tie for this day, just business causal or a button-up shirt would be good. Epic hires about 250 fresh college grads per year and they are constantly expanding, so chances are you will be hired!

    Interview Questions
    • The case study was perhaps the most difficult portion for the entire interview. Be ready to tell how you prioritize different emails and voice mails in the given scenarios. The interviewer will add constraints and extra conditions that make your previous answer seem inappropriate and inconsiderate, just be ready to work your brain really fast.   Answer Question
    Negotiation Details
    Not much negotiation was needed since the salary they offered was in the upper range of my proposed salary.
