    Software Developer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Madison, WI
    No Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Epic Systems Corporation (Wisconsin) (Madison, WI) in December 2016.

    Interview

    Had a phone interview with HR then a skills assessment. I'm a CS and EE major and do well in all of my programming classes including the CS ones and I still found the programming portion of the skills assessment to be very difficult. I believe it's a good thing the skills assessment is so challenging so that you can prove your worth, I believe I'm a competent programmer compared to my peers but still didn't pass this stage of the interview process.

    Interview Questions

    • The skills assessment included string manipulation, challenging mathematical problems, and asked me to write code that would optimize a move in a given board game layout.   1 Answer

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at Epic Systems Corporation (Wisconsin).

    Interview

    I actually applied for another company who was going to send someone to Epic for training. Epic required assessment testing. I had to take the test. I have been an implementation consultant for an Occupational Health system for 10 years and never needed these skills. Epic just likes the power to rule the world. Why should they decide by their assessment test who should be trained in their system. I would never work for Epic because they treat their employees like garbage. I did want to be a consultant for another company to implement Epic but since Epic requires the assessment and I didn't pass the assessment I could not be part of the 50 person team this firm was looking to hire.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through other source. The process took a week. I interviewed at Epic Systems Corporation (Wisconsin) in July 2016.

    Interview

    Ridiculous process of applying for a position. You may have 10-20 years of experience and they will still require you to get your college transcript. First they will email you asking for the transcript and if no response, they will personally call you BUT not even a hint of an interview -- just a request for the transcript. After going through the trouble of getting your transcript, and if your GPA is not good enough, despite having the experience, you will not be interviewed.

    Technical Service Representative Interview

    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through other source. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Epic Systems Corporation (Wisconsin) (Verona, WI) in April 2012.

    Interview

    Initially contacted by email to answer a timed questionnaire with some logic, puzzle, and opinion-based questions. Round 2 was a scheduled phone interview with someone working in the role I was applying for. Round 3 was an optional dinner with a couple hosts from the company and other interviewees the night before the on-site interview. Round 4 was finally the on-site interview which began at 9 AM and lasted until 3 PM. It consisted of the following:
    - A scenario-based interview with a staff member in the role you are interviewing for
    - One-on-one Q and A with a senior staff member in the role you are interviewing for
    - Multiple timed tests on math, logic, and grammar
    - Lunch in the cafeteria with 1 staff member and a couple other interviewees
    - An interview with a member of the Human Resources Department
    - A non-timed test on coding ability where you are presented with a task and need to write the code that would accomplish it.

    I received a call with the job offer from the same HR person I interviewed with about 2 or 3 weeks after the on-site interview.

    Project Manager Interview

    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3+ weeks. I interviewed at Epic Systems Corporation (Wisconsin) (Madison, WI) in January 2016.

    Interview

    The recruiter emailed me, then I applied online. Then I did a phone interview and the assessments with ProctorU. There were 30 logic questions times in 5 minutes. I was irate because the proctor said that the video dropped and he didn't stop the time or anything. I told Epic about it, but obviously they didn't care because more than a week later they rejected me for whatever reason. The never got back to me when they said they would. That's a sign of a company I don't want to work for. Plus, I never want to move to Wisconsin. I have been to their office before and it's awesome but good luck surviving in Wisconsin.

    Intern Interview

    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Epic Systems Corporation (Wisconsin) in September 2015.

    Interview

    Met at career fair. Phone screen a couple of weeks later. Then this very long online coding assessment while a third-party proctoring services watches you. The test locks out if you click outside the screen. I had issues with my proctor being late and getting locked out without support. It was grueling and inconvenient to take during the work week. The questions were of fairly high difficulty (harder than companies like Amazon, Microsoft, EA where I received offers). Waited a few weeks for a result and was rejected.

    Felt like the process was very impersonal. At worst, a failed interview can allow you to learn and practice your skills. Instead, I had to take this grueling test in my free time with no feedback on what I could improve on. Given the company's reputation and caliber, I felt that the demands were not reasonable while juggling many other less-demanding internship interviews with superior compensation and opportunities.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

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

    Interview

    Applied online and was contacted about a week or so later to set up first round which is a phone screen. That lasted about 30 minutes, and was with a current integration engineer. He was very positive about my chances and wished me luck. That same day I got an invite to the their infamous online assessment test which is their big weed out test. I scheduled to take it a few days later, and took their advice that "no advanced knowledge in any technical subject was required. No studying needed. " Well, I'll be honest that test was hard as hell. I literally made up stuff and laughed because you definitely had to have prior experience in some coding language. I know very basic Php and I thought that would be enough. Nope. Got denied two weeks later, but was expecting it. Overall, the process was alright. I really hate those assessment tests, but that is their prerogative.

    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at Epic Systems Corporation (Wisconsin) (Norfolk, VA) in October 2015.

    Interview

    The process started with a phone interview that lasted me about 40 minutes. It was basic interview questions like "Where do you see yourself in five years?" Then I was sent a personality exam to fill out. After those materials were reviewed, I moved onto the technical exam. The technical exam lasted four hours for me because I had 30 minutes of technical issues with the proctoring software.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Epic Systems Corporation (Wisconsin) in October 2015.

    Interview

    First was a resume drop then a phone call screening. Asked basic stuff about resume in line with what every else said. Next was a programming test consisting of 20MC based on their own programming language then 4 coding questions. I thought the last 2 were relatively difficult; they felt like homework problems that we'd have 3 days to work on, not 30 minutes (for coding ability wise I attend a top 3 school for CS so i'd like to think i don't suck that bad :/ )
