SBS Associate District Manager Interview

SBS Associate District Manager
Denver, CO

I applied through a recruiter and the process took 3 weeks - interviewed 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.

Associate District Manager Small Business Services Interview

Associate District Manager Small Business Services

Interviewed at ADP

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.

Interview Question – During the role play: "I don't want to change. Everything I have works fine."   Answer Question

SBS Associate District Manager Interview

Interview Details – The process is very detailed, and worth every second. There is an initial phone interview to see if you're confident, what motivates you, is sales for you or not. After the phone interview you will get passed to either the VP or SE for more detailed interview. After that interview you will be asked to go on a ride with a District Manager. On that ride day you will detailed to go gather some business cards, and "The Four Corners"...

Interview Question – In 30 seconds tell me why I should even pass you on to the ride day?   Answer Question

Easy Interview

SBS Associate District Manager

I applied online and the process took 1 week - interviewed 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.

Associate District Manager Interview

Associate District Manager
Minneapolis, MN

I applied online and the process took 4+ weeks - interviewed at ADP in January 2010.

Interview Details – The interview was generally behavioral. You meet with group managers where they basically decide if you are personable enough for sales and whether they like you. If you pass that round, the next round is a meeting with the VP to do a mock sales call. This was unexpected. I was given a packet of information and 20 minutes to put together my pitch. Then the VP comes in and you sell him whatever the facts tell you to sell how the facts tell you to sell it.

Interview Question – The case was completely unexpected but goes well. The VP does not try to embarrass you or bring you down. Additionally, it is essentially what you will be doing in the job itself so it is good practice.   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – The salary was set in stone and the benefits were solid without negotiation.

Very Easy Interview

SBS Associate District Manager Interview

SBS Associate District Manager

Interviewed at ADP

Interview Details – Process took about a month. Basic phone interview first and then video interview. The video interview flashes a question on the screen and you have about 30 seconds to prepare an answer. A couple days later I was brought in for a 1:1 and asked to come back for a final interview, ride along, and role play. Be sure to ask a lot of questions during the ride along phase and practice the role play so you are prepared to perform when you get back to the office. Be sure to smile and have fun!

Difficult Interview

Associate District Sales Manager Interview

Associate District Sales Manager
Rancho Cucamonga, CA

I applied online and the process took 4+ weeks - interviewed at ADP in November 2012.

Interview Details – There were 7 interviews total; 1- by telephone with the recruiter, 2- panel interview with mentor/manager, 3- in-person interview with a manager, 4- ride along with top rep, 5- ride along with new rep, 6- interview with VP, 7- interview with management team.

The KEY to all of these, there exhibit ZERO follow-up. Don't take it as being rude. They want to see that YOU have the follow-up and closing skills to obtain the job, and use these skills to obtain business for them. When you're at the job, business owners are busy and generally don't call you back. You must set the pace of the sale with their consent, and move it forward.

Important notes; at the conclusion of each interview step, ask if you've answered their questions to their satisfaction, ask if the examples and stories you've shared overcame the obstacles they laid out for you, and if its a "yes", then ask for their support moving forward, and ask what the next step is. Make sure to tell them you're excited to work with them and take diligent notes.
