The process took 2 weeks - interviewed at ADP in November 2010.

Interview Details – Recruiter contacted me, told me about the position. Scheduled interview at the location I work, had to do a role play and demonstrate sales talent. Went on an observation ride 1/2 day with a current District Manager, and had a final interview with the VP.

District Manager- SBS Outside Sales Interview

District Manager- SBS Outside Sales
San Francisco, CA

The process took 2 weeks - interviewed at ADP in December 2011.

Interview Details – Called by a recruiter. Recruiter set up a phone interview date. Recruiter called at the exact time she said she would, she was professional but not personable at all. I passed the phone interview and was scheduled to meet 1 on 1 with the VP of sales. I arrived about 15 minutes early. He came out on time and led me to his office. Not a personable guy at all, and I pretty much get along with everyone. He was very professional and didn't break character at all (I've been fairly successful at breaking interviewers character to make them at LEAST smile). He didn't budge much. He asked me the basics, and was like a tape recorder (and I was the first interview of the day...). I have a lot of energy, am very confident, and very personable (as a good salesperson should be) and he was like a history librarian.

He told me he'd get back to me by Friday (my interview was Wednesday). It was a holiday weekend so no follow up on Friday was understandable. Called him on Monday (1.2.12) with no answer. Got a reply on Tuesday (1.3.12) saying they are going ahead with another candidate.

Pretty basic interview, too uptight for me but after all you're selling outsourced payroll and HR services...

District Manager- SBS Outside Sales
Waltham, MA

The process took 3 weeks - interviewed at ADP in June 2011.

Interview Details – First had a phone interview with their recruiting department and it was more of a screening. The next interview was with 3 mid level managers and then the top manager. Mid level managers were all friendly and asked easy questions. Top manager asked a lot of challenging questions about past job situations and personal experiences.

District Manager- SBS Outside Sales Interview

District Manager- SBS Outside Sales
Seattle, WA

The process took 6+ weeks - interviewed at ADP in January 2009.

Interview Details – process was very long, un organized, and was not something i would recommend undertaking. people did not communicate between departments, and the interviewers had no clue where you were in the process. you could tell they run people thru interviews constantly and dont care about you at all. i got the job and accepted, worked for 2 years, and was a top performer. so this is not out of bitterness at all.

District Manager- SBS Outside Sales
Portland, OR

I applied through a recruiter and the process took 4+ weeks - interviewed at ADP in November 2009.

Interview Details – The interview process is pretty typical for this type of position. A recruiter contacts you and asks basic questions. There is a follow up interview a little more in depth that comes with several online assessments. If you get pushed on through here then they will do a fairly extensive background check of your work history, credit, criminal, and driving record background check (same a government official). There are two separate face to face interviews with a SE and a regional sales manager as well as a ride along with an associate. If this all goes according to plan a drug test and an acceptance interview later, welcome to ADP.

Interview Question – Can you read people?... What do I think of you?   View Answer

Negotiation Details – There is no negotiation. ADP is a huge company and the job hunting is tough. You either accept their offer or it is bye bye to you.
