Major Accounts District Manager Interview

Major Accounts District Manager
Milford, CT

I applied through a recruiter and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at ADP in June 2014.

Interview Details – Recruiter found me on LinkedIn. I wasn't really looking but she said this was a great opportunity. First I spoke with her for about 30 minutes. I thought it went well and she thought it went very well. Next step was in person. Met me the manager. I thought this went very well too but the manager did not

I applied online - interviewed at ADP in July 2010.

Interview Details – Difficult to start a process without going through HR recruiters and week out HR interview first. My process was 8 years ago and it didn't seem to change much. There is a test although that may be going away. Somehow ADP has this linked to the stremaline division and I worked for the US Employer services division and streamline is a product offered by that division. It would not surprise me to learn that they have ensured that the US portion is as difficult as possible to review on Glassdoor. enough said.

Interview Question – Nothing unexpected or terribly difficult, you will have to make a presentation, again not difficult or unexpected.   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – Attempted too but there was and is no give in this area.

I applied through an employee referral and the process took 4+ weeks - interviewed at ADP in December 2013.

Interview Details – A standard phone call with the sales recruiter was the first step. Reviewed the resume, discussed why ADP, why leaving current positions, and what my previous positions entailed for responsibilites and accomplishments. Next was a conversational interview with the district vice president. AFter that, I was assigned a presentation on the affordable care act and met with the district vp and hiring manager to present. Again, conversational. Noting behavior per se.

Interview Question – I was asked what my progression path at the company looked like, so be comfortable with the other positions in the company and what your options are.   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – No negotiation for this role. Base was 55K with a one year training subsidy of an additional 1250 per pay check for 6 months, then 750 a pay check for the last 6 months.

I applied through an employee referral and the process took 3 months - interviewed at ADP in October 2012.

Interview Details – I had first contact with a recruiter that was very helpful in preparing me for the next steps. I had a 3 step process with two in person interviews starting with the VP and next with the Sales Executive. The final step was a presentation that the recruiter gives you the topics for. After my presentation, I had to make some dials for the manager to let him hear my gaining access pitch.

Interview Question – How do you sell what we do while making an HR person feel comfortable and not threatened?   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – easy, they gave me what I specified.

I applied through a recruiter and the process took 4 weeks - interviewed at ADP in October 2013.

Interview Details – 1) I was contact via LinkedIn and setup with an interview with the Regional Manager.

2) I had an interview with the Regional Manager one week later that lasted about an hour. I received a call later that day for the next interview.

3) Interviewed with two of the location manager (one of whom I would be reporting to) one week later that lasted about 30 min. I received a call later that day asking me in to do a presentation for them on outsourcing in 3 days.

4) I gave them a presentation on outsourcing (no specifications were given for the project) that was about 5 min long. At this step, make sure that the presentation is actually a sales presentation and make them believe in whatever you are trying to sell them, no matter how little feedback they are giving you during it. I received a call back about an hour later telling me that they were going to extent me an offer. I received the offer later that afternoon.

5) YOU ARE NOT HIRED - They will do a very thorough background check on work history, criminal, drug and education. Make sure you call your previous employers and that all information they have is the same as what you have. I passed the background.

The whole process is long, but smooth if you keep the conversation light during the interviews and know every metric from your past. This is not an entry level position, so you should know a lot about prospecting, pipeline management and closing deals. If you are an ideal candidate, they know you will be interviewing them as much as them interviewing you and expect it. Once you know it is the right fit, tell them and then sell, sell, sell.

Good Luck!

Interview Question – Nothing new here. If you have interviewed with any technology, pharma, med device, etc. in the past 3 years it will be similar. Behavior based, 'tell me about a time when...'

Don't ever mention that you are viewing this as a 'stepping stone' (even though it is!).
  Answer Question

Negotiation Details – Fairly limited. You might have 5k worth of wiggle room in the base.

Major Accounts - District Manager Interview

Major Accounts - District Manager
Clackamas, OR

I applied through a recruiter and the process took 4 weeks - interviewed at ADP in November 2011.

Interview Details – contacted by recruiter, brief interview with recruiter, phone interview with ADP hiring rep, panel interview with local managers, presentation to local managers, final meeting to discuss offer. I was impressed with the process as it was very professional but the people were approachable, good blend of professionalism and personality. My advice for other candidates would be to be yourself (not necessarily looking for a cookie-cutter individual) and ask questions.

Interview Question – How would you Describe yourself and what you will bring to ADP?   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – I didn't negotiate as the real income in this position is generated through sales, so I was less concerned with the base (which is not significant enough to take the position on that basis). The opportunity to make money through commission is why it is a good job.

There was a phone screen, a 1 on 1 interview with a manager, a personality test, and a group interview with a required presentation you give to them selling ADP's solutions.

Interview Question – An in depth review of your business acumen and how your prior experience has set you up for success in this position.   Answer Question
