Getting an Interview
Getting an Interview
Helpful (48)Accepted OfferPositive ExperienceDifficult Interview
I applied through college or university. The process took 3+ weeks. I interviewed at Epic Systems Corporation (Madison, WI).
There were three phases to the interview. I would recommend doing plenty of research on this website if you want to advance. I spent hours looking at reviews on this website and I can honestly say it helped me tremendously. Phase 1) Met a recruiter at my college job fair and was contacted a week later saying they would like me to take the exam and do a phone interview. Phase 2) Exam and phone interview. Phone interview was very brief and was with a current PM. I could tell that it wasn't really about the interview and what mattered was how well I did on the exam. Phone interview was basic and lasted like ten minutes. Questions were things like "where do you see yourself in five years, what do you know about the role, how often are you willing to travel, why Epic?". The exam will take around two hours. It took me just under two. It's filmed and there is a virtual proctor making sure that you don't cheat. There are four sections - speed, math, comprehension/grammar, and programming. For this position, the programming part is more of a can you pick things up quickly and use logical thought. It was tough but if you do your research on here and on Google you'll come in with an idea of what the questions will be like. There's also a behavioral test that takes around 30 minutes of your time. It'll make you rank things and put what you're most like. Phase 3) If you make it through phase two, they'll email you and ask you to fly out within the next two weeks. That part is really fun. You can choose to get dinner with an employee the night before your actual interview and get a feel for the role. If you do this you'll meet other applicants and get to experience some of Madison's downtown cuisine. The process is pretty seamless and stress free. Epic is flying in tons of recruits so everything is very planned and orderly. If you're good with people, this is your time to shine. -The actual interview the next day consists of 4 interviews, one presentation, one case study, lunch, and an intro to the actual software. There's an informal interview with an actual PM where you just kinda talk about the role and ask questions. Then there's an HR interview where you'll be asked behavioral questions. Most of these center on how well you're able to work in a group --my advice is to emphasize the importance of communication and being a team player. This is where you'll need to think of your STAR format answers. After that, there's an interview with a PM where you'll be asked specific questions regarding how you'd handle things as a PM. The questions are more about how you think and how you react to things. The fourth interview is one with HR that's pretty brief. It just asks typical questions, all of which you can see on this website in someone's review. This is where the "list five things you're not" question comes in. I found this part to be the most exhausting because it was the end of the day and I was really tired. For some reason it was harder for me to think of answers during this interview than any of the others. They'll also ask you what you want your starting salary to be--and if you're just graduating college the correct answer is anywhere from the high 50's to the mid-sixties. That's the typical range for the position if you've got less than a year of professional experience. The presentation is pretty standard and you'll get to make it on anything you want. My advice is to pick something topical that the people will find interesting. There was a lady frowning at me the entire time I did mine which kind of threw me but eh. The case study is pretty basic and they're really just looking to see if you can think logically and back up your answers. You're given a scenario and ten minutes to review it before you've gotta write down the issues and their order of importance and what you'd do to solve them. Lunch is just in the cafeteria with a ton of other applicants and an employee. I was flown out on Monday and received my offer later that week. I also had another job on the table and that expedited the process. My advice to anyone reading this would be to do your research. Come in prepared by looking through all the reviews on this website and googling epic stuff. Also, if you're not good with people, practice(?). Although, this may not be the job for you if you're not a people person. I'm a people person so I made sure to talk to every employee and applicant and try to connect. Don't go overboard though, there's a delicate balance when it comes to working a room and seeming enthusiastic about the position vs trying too hard. I immediately accepted my offer because it seems like a pretty sweet deal. The campus was amazing and the people were really, really friendly. But if you're just starting the process-- make sure you take time and do well on those tests.
