    Application

    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.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at Epic Systems Corporation (Wisconsin) (Verona, WI) in December 2015.

    Interview

    The interview process for Epic can take a long while from when you first apply.
    Phase 1, a phone screening (short 10 minute conversation over the phone) took place approximately 1 week after applying online.
    About another week later, I was notified by email to take a skills assessment (programming skills and math/reading skills)--- the programming skills assessment is more important if you are looking for a more technical project manager role, rather than a software implementation role.
    Two weeks after this assessment, I was invited to take a personality test as part of the screening process. About a week and a half later, I was notified of a hiring freeze, but that Epic would be holding on to my application. A month or so later, I was contacted by phone with an invitation to go to Epic headquarters for an interview.

    The in-person interview process is a day long event- the first part of the morning is dedicated to learning more about Epic as a company, benefits, etc. Next, there are breakout sessions where applicants can ask questions about the job/work environment. Towards noon there a problem solving session where you and another applicant are evaluated by an experienced employee on case studies of how you would handle certain situations. After this, there was a personal discussion with another employee, this time 1:1 where they asked questions related to professional goals and interpersonal working styles. A small break for lunch (free of charge) proceeded with one more short conversational type screening and then there was a final presentation that you prepare ahead of time with a duration of 10 minutes. This is presented to a panel of employees in addition to your main HR person with whom you have a final 30 minute "traditional" job interview at the end of the day.

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Epic Systems Corporation (Wisconsin) (Madison, WI) in August 2017.

    Interview

    Phone interview was super easy, just talking to someone who has the job currently. Assessment is annoying. In person interview is long and tiring but no part of the day is particularly tricky

    Easy Interview

    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.

Received a third email asking to set up an assessment test that 'everyone' must take. Took the test and two weeks later received an email telling me they were pursuing other candidates.

    Interview

    They got back to me within a few days after submitting my resume to schedule a phone interview and skills assessments. The phone interview was relatively straightforward and casual. You speak to a current project manager and it's a good opportunity to learn more about the role while they also learn more about how you would fit into the company. I found the skills assessments to be fairly difficult, but not impossible, SAT style questions. Overall I had a good experience with Epic's interview process.
