    Interview

    There are three parts- a phone screen, a remotely-proctored online assessment, and an on-site interview. I made it to the online assessment.

    The phone screen is actually very straightforward. They just want to know why you're interested in the company, and have you walk them through a project you've done in the past to demonstrate good background.

    The online assessment was the worst interview experience I've ever had but not because of the assessment itself. If you're not familiar with ProctorU, it's a remote proctoring service where you screen-share and have your room monitored for the entirety of an examination. You get one bathroom break and a fairly intrusive environment where you need to open up a port in your computer for them to view incoming/outgoing traffic. The exam involves having you solve some standard programming questions, a speed-focused logic section, and an interesting section where you learn Epic's internal language on the fly and answer some questions about it. So this assessment seems to take people 2-4 hours.

    My issue had less to do with the assessment itself (which I thought was interesting and quite fair) and more to do with ProctorU. If your connection bugs out for a few seconds, your assessment is paused and you may wait anywhere between 5 to 20 minutes for a new proctor to show up, during which you aren't allowed to go and take a bathroom break. So I spent a total of about an hour dealing with technical difficulties during/between sections because my bandwidth was about average and not capable of keeping up a constant, good-quality stream to a remote location while taking an exam in real time.

    Overall if they figure out some way to ensure compliance without using a program like ProctorU, or just defaulting to onsites, that'd be great. I think the online assessment was actually a pretty interesting and otherwise useful system. But the online assessment was, for me, a pretty bad experience just because of the proctoring software.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Epic Systems Corporation (Wisconsin) (Madison, WI).

    Interview

    Extremely disappointed with the professionalism of this company. Applied and got response next day to schedule phone interview/assessments, which was great - but on day of scheduled phone interview, no one called after waiting for 45 minutes. Sent email to HR and got no response after several days, before sending another. Finally several days after second email, finally got response to reschedule without any kind of apology or mention of the mishap or delay. I get they were having a busy week for their international conference, but this kind of sloppiness was totally unprofessional. Had to spend lots of time doing their online assessments too. Overall, it was a total waste of time, should have known something was up after the phone call no show.

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at Epic Systems Corporation (Wisconsin).

    Interview

    The phone interview was more informal than I thought, helped to learn the role better. The profile assessment that I completed before the interview was actually kind of fun to take. The turn around time from when I applied and got a phone interview was only a few days.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. I interviewed at Epic Systems Corporation (Wisconsin) in October 2017.

    Interview

    I met with Epic Systems representatives at my college's career fair. From there, I received an email to schedule a ~35 minute phone interview with "x" person. I schedule said interview.

    Come the specified date and time I did not receive a phone call until 45 minutes after the interview was supposed to start from someone other than "x" person. By this point I could not begin the interview because I had an obligatory group meeting for a class project in 10 minutes. The interviewer asks me to follow up with the head recruiter to schedule a new interview time. I sent an email immediately after the call and never received a reply. Needless to say, this is highly unprofessional behavior, and I did not expect this from a company like Epic.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Epic Systems Corporation (Wisconsin).

    Interview

    Applied online. Within two hours I received an email asking to schedule a phone interview. Then took the personality test and the proctored online skills assessment. Then the day after the phone interview I received an email saying they would like to bring me to Wisconsin to interview for both the project manager and technical problem solver role. Skills assessment was tough but there was nothing you could study for, just quick math skills and logical reasoning. Phone interview was very casual and helped clarify the role of the project manager.
