    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at ADP.

    Interview Details

    A recruiter reached out after I applied. A couple days later an in-person interview came into play. I met with the manager of the entire Phoenix office. He asked normal sales questions. What has your year-to-date quota been? Have you reached it? Why Sales? What do you know about ADP?
    a few days later the recruiter called me and told me I would have a final interview. I met with a manager (who will be your manager if you get hired) at Starbucks. He asked me basic questions, "Why ADP?" "What have you been doing since you graduated?" Then I went out for half a day with a district manager on his team to see what a day in the life would be like. Afterwards, I went back to the office to meet with the manager I met previously and also the sales manager for the entire Phoenix area. I was given information to study for 15 minutes and then do a role play with both of them. Wasn't too bad. Ask for the job! They want to hear you are eager and WANT the position.

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 5 daysinterviewed at ADP.

    Interview Details

    Your first interview will be conducted in the office around 9:00 am, usually on a Wednesday. You will be interviewed by at least two different Sales Executives either together or separate. If both of the Sales Executives approve of you then the next step will be a field ride with a District Manager. You will ride along for a whole day and see what the job responsibilities look like. If the District Manager you rode with also approves, it then will likely go to the Vice President of Sales for the final approval.

    It was an at length interview process. They do an extended background check that takes months. The management that you deal with during the hiring process is very helpful. They do three interviews during the process and once you get to the ride along you pretty much have the job.

    SBS Associate District Manager Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Denver, CO

    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at ADP in July 2014.

    Interview Details

    Was hunted by an HR rep via LinkedIn then had a phone interview, a phone call with the branch's VP of Sales then they invited me to a field ride/cold call session. When I got there the person who interviewed me over the phone was gone, they didn't know what to do with me then they found someone to take me out and shadow them. Instead I just made cold calls for about three hours and was left alone. Terrible experience and company. I must add that I spent nearly $1,200 to fly in and stay in Denver and I all got in my rejection email was a simple cut and paste email. If a company will treat an out-of-state applicant that way, its no company that I would want to work for.

    Interview Details

    1. Phone Screen (say you're money motivated, results-oriented, and talk confidently and ask to be moved forward). 2. 1v1 with VP (you must follow up STRONG after this interview). 3. 2V1 with Sales Executives (Don't give them any red flags - show your personality, too). 4. Ride Along, ask lots of questions and make sure you get the rep's recommendation 5.) role-play (make sure you ask the "client" lots of questions! The client will probably be the VP of sales. They are looking for personality, probing questions, and asking for the close. They won't let you close - they'll try and shut down anything you say. Try and stay strong).

    Was told that I did well and I should receive word if I get the job in a couple days - it's now the end of a couple days and I have received no word. ADP interviews a lot of people and they will show no respect for you or your time, so be prepared. You're going to have to kiss a lot of you know what to get this job, with lots of follow up emails after every step in the process.

    I applied online. The process took a weekinterviewed at ADP.

    Interview Details

    Hiring process was fairly easy. Apply and recruiter will take a look at your resume. If there's a potential fit, you are scheduled for a phone interview. If you qualify, you meet the sales manager. If the manager likes you, you move on to a field day with a tenured sales rep who shows you a day in the life. They will get to know you and will provide feedback to the managers. The experience can differ base on the day that you have shadowing the rep based on their own calendar. Upon doing so, you will go in one last interview and asked to role play and if you can close the mock sale, you should get an offer.
