Application Details

I applied online – interviewed at ADP.

Interview Details

submitted an application online, was contacted by a recruiter who asked basic questions and reassured me that i was a great fit for the position. when i arrive at the facility 15 minutes early they seat me in a shabby intake area. people (including the person who would later interview me) walked passed me, looking me up and down. it was slightly unprofessional, alas i'd probably be doing the same. after waiting for nearly a half hour my interviewer finally called me in. he too, looked me up and down as if to size me up asked a couple of questions and then announced that he wanted me to fight for the position because he 'was ready to end the interview' ...confused i reviewed my accomplishments and why i thought i would be a good fit to which he responded ' has anyone ever told you that you are hmmm sassy?...it's not a good thing.' I think it was the first time i actually rolled my eyes in front of a potential employer...two more interviews follwed with other managers--each trying to 'connect' with me. i didn't really give the company a fair shot after the initial interview as my counterpart's behavior was so offputting. i followed up with friendly e-mails --no one responded. i didn't get any notification that i had been turned down for the position just a request to evaluate the interview process.

Interview Questions
  • the interviewer--the first one, looked at my resume (clearly not reading it) and said why should i choose you when i could hire someone with a 4.0 gpa. ( my gpa was a cool 3.5) it was sort of off putting and said without reason. i felt he was trying to ruffle my feathers just because--if i wasn't a good fit why would the recruiter contact me in the first place. nothing really made sense....   Answer Question

    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at ADP in July 2014.

    Interview Details

    Was reached out to by a recruiter. Had a phone interview, an in person interview, and a ride along, followed by another in person interview.

    I was extended an offer at that point and signed all the paperwork. I even went through the benefit packet with my manager.

    The background check process was a complete joke. The staffing coordinator requested each W-2 separately, and on different days and kept requesting paperwork that wasn't necessary or that I had already sent before.

    I wound up having my offer RESCINDED because their legal team didn't "feel comfortable" with a minor citation on my background from 2007. Oh, and I found out my offer was rescinded by calling my staffing coordinator in Texas. They didn't even have the professionalism to call me first.

    My recruiter told me that if there were any red flags on the background, she should've been notified weeks ago. She wasn't and we were both in the dark. This company is too big for its own good, they have people sign offers and then take 3 weeks for background checks and then rescind an offer for something so ridiculously minor. Unbelievable lack of professionalism and I was treated disrespectfully.

    The process took 2 weeksinterviewed 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...

    The process took 3 weeksinterviewed 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.

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed 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.

    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.

    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.
