over 40 in Oconomowoc, Wisconsin

Madison dweller in Madison, Wisconsin said: Just because they didn't hire *you* doesn't mean that they don't hire people over 50. I know several people who work at Epic that are older (i.e. 50+) The CEO, Judy, is over 50, I know that for sure. Bitterness and slander are the path to the darkside.

I didn't see many "over 50" people when I went in to interview. Also was told by one of the employees that they have a very high turnover rate. So their hiring practices (campus fairs, extensive tests during interviewing) are backfiring on them.

Whoa, dude. Anybody who went to an Ivy school, or even a
second/third tier school would be a total loser to apply
to work for Epic.

state school grad in Madison, Wisconsin

85 months ago

I graduated from a state school in Wisconsin and I work at Epic, I also know quite a few who graduated from my school that work at Epic. It's true they look at GPA, especially from people right out of school. If you can't do well in school, what would make people think you can do well at work? I don't know if they look at GPA as much for experienced people though. I don't know why some of you are so bitter about not getting a job, there are a lot of jobs I didn't get when I was applying after graduation.

I can give a little insight. If you are willing to work, they are willing to pay. Been working there for 3 years - good bonus every year - if the price of hiring college grads goes up - everyones salary gets increased. Lots of travel but I knew that ahead of time. Got offer from IBM right out of small ivy and EPIC was comparable. Been here 3 years and not thinking of leaving. Been offered jobs at sites using our software so there are places to go after epic that are looking for EPIC experience. I feel I made a great choice out of college.

even I have no clue but what i heard was that they ask like 5 programming questions and you should try to finish in as less time as posssible. You can choose any language. Which language do you think you are going to use? I am thinking of VB. GOOD LUCK with your test though. PLease do share your experience with us. Just the experience I am not expecting the questions from you.

Sreekanth, interview was pretty casual as mentioned by some in this forum. Don't have to stress too much about it, the interviewer was very nice and friendly. I think the HR will confirm with you the phone interview time. You better check with them, I don't think they will call you anytime without confirming the time. Good luck in your phone interview.

Hi Sumit,

Could you tell me how long after taking the Skills Assessment Test should one expect to wait for the results? If its more than 2 weeks and yet not heard from them, is it ok if you asked them about your status? Can i know how many days it took for you to know the results after taking your skills assessment test?

Thanks.

i completely agree with you. Tats OK if you are not selected. Looking at GPA is a very common thing throughout the industry. I did my masters from NJIT with GPA of 3.5 and i have been selected at Epic. Environment of the company is cool, fun loving, casual. I love it.

For all those who are seeking for questions coming in skills assessment test, DO NOT worry about it. Those are not difficult questions, and you can do it if you have ever done any kind of programming (coding). You dont even need to have correct syntax. you can write pseudo code. You should be logically sound. You can solve them without using OOPS concepts.I was also worried before the test and wanted to get some questions, but didnt get any and cleared the test. Try to do it quickly though. May be in 70-80 mins. Writing comments always helps.

Jaydot in Tempe, Arizona said: Yea I too got an offer from Epic, I was wondering what kind of money is good to get from them, and if I can use this job to move into consulting for the software in the future.

Epic requires a non-compete agreement that will keep you from working with hospitals for about a year after you leave their employment and they some non-hire agreements with partnered consulting companies that could make that tough. They don't really mention the non-hire agreements when they hire you so it can surprise some of the employees who don't have those provisions in their contacts.

Seems like there is a-lot of doubt on the credibility of the posts. I recently (3 days ago) applied to Epic, applying for the Corporate Educator position. My ACT score (SAT equivilant) is high but my GPA was not. I did not attend an Ivy league school. Also I'm not fresh out of collage but I do have some quality teaching experience with excellent references. We'll have to see if I get an interview or not. My goal is to give readers a play-by-play of my success or failure to getting hired on. If I get the job then I would think you'd have one source of evidence that GPA, University and age are not important. If I'm not hired then maybe the concerns are accurate. Good luck to all.

So I got a response via e-mail. I was told that they would "move forward with other candidates". I'm really bumed especially after reading about so many good things about Epic. I presume they had some great candidates to consider which is to their loss. It would have been nice to at least get an interview. I think this shows that they look at the application, resume and steeply consider GPA & SAT scores. I would have given their hiring process more credit with an interview. However the credit given supports the theory they judge an applicant by their cover and not by their interview. Good luck to all.

Using GPA as a basis for selecting a person in industry is outright ridiculous. There are way too many variables involved in GPAs. I don't think they even take into account the courses a candidate has taken; so essentially in Epic's eyes, a person who took all the easy courses and coasted through their program with a 3.5+ GPA is "better" than a person who chose to take the toughest courses and ended up with a 3.0+ GPA. I guess Epic deserves the ones who take the easy way out. Good luck to them :)

Using GPA has proven to be a good predictor in future commitment and success. I am an outlier here so I am not "tooting my own horn". Epic hires extremely bright people, in my current position I work with a few of them and they all are in the upper percentile in regards to intellect and work ethic.

It's funny reading all of the negative responses from people that didn't get hired/offered. It's alright, there are other things to do out there but try not to kick too much mud. Much of the behaviors displayed on here make me think that these people would have been the early burnouts if they had been hired.

This company runs a cult-like atmoshpere and very much prefers guest workers from India who they can pay less and control more. They want to process lots of American applications so they can justify this practice.

First they will make you jump through a hundred hoops in the hiring process. This will include taking a proctored test that lasts several hours. The test they give to potential guest workers is much easier and geared for them to succeed. They may invite you up to Wisconson for interviews, but this is once again just a ploy to say they are trying to hire American workers.

If you should somehow get a job there, they have a "campus" that is just a carpeted 60 hour per week prison. Their software is called "Kashmere", which is a proprietary language geared for workers from India to learn easier. It is a dead end for a career because it is not applicable anywhere else AND they will force you to sign an air-tight non-compete contract. Finally, if you do work there and dare question anything at all, your termination will be immediate.

They should be investigated for their practices.

You are just wasting a LOT of your time if you fall for their pitch and apply.

Wow... these and all the rumors and responses of disgruntled people that didn't get hired or didn't last long at Epic (for whatever reason) make me laugh.

Ok here is the honest truth for a ver realistic 37 year old (I've been with Epic just under 4 years, meaning they hired me at age 34) with 4 kids (3 when I started at Epic, but since then we had another child).

Epic does hire people of all ages, shapes, sizes, ethnic background, and any other category around which you might think. It does however attempt to hire the brightest people possible (however no system is perfect). This means they do look exceptionally closely at your academic records and performance, and they do additional testing of candidates (that many places don't). However none of this is written in stone. They do also hire experienced people (that are very bright). I came to Epic with more than 10 years of work experience and considerably less formal education than most of the people here.

I've been here almost 4 years and I can tell you this. Epic is a GREAT PLACE TO WORK! No place (and I've worked at quite a few when I was an IT consultant) is perfect. But out of all the great places I've worked (several of which were Ranked in the top 100 places to work), I am extremely statisfied working at Epic. You are given a lot of responsibility and expected to be self-motivated, self-managing, hard working, and to make intelligent decisions. If you are capable of doing those things, you will enjoy working here! You will be treated exceptionally well, work with very bright people, and enjoy what you do (again though no place is perfect, it's ok to agree to disagree about some things).

I'm an Epic customer, and I've been to Verona. Cult-like atmosphere, perhaps (I used to work for a consulting firm with one LOL), but there are 5000+ US employees who work at this campus, so I can't imagine how much they could be outsourcing to India. It's a predominantly young crowd, but there are certainly older/experienced people there. I had to take their personality test and pseudo-programming/math/verbal tests to even be on the customer implementation team! Yes, they are really tough for some people (I thought they were kinda fun), but tests like that can really show the spectrum of talent and differentiate for hiring purposes - I give them kudos for using it to not only select but to place people. It's not for everyone...
