I applied through a recruiter. The process took 6 days – interviewed at ADP (Pittsburgh, PA) in March 2015.
I was contacted by 2 recruiters for an open position in Pittsburgh office. Set up an interview for the following week. I sat down with 2 managers separately for 2 different department positions. The interview was casual yet challenging.

I was contacted by a recruiter from LinkedIn through a employee referral. I had a telephone on with her to discuss my prior experience and was then moved to the next step of interviewing with the VP over the phone. I passed that and was offered to ride with another sales rep to see "a day in the life". Then next step was to have a face to face interview with the VP and do a presentation. The presentation was basically a overview of the company. The offer was given several months later.

I applied through a recruiter. The process took 4 weeks – interviewed at ADP.
I worked with a recruiter and had an initial phone screening interview, then I came in and interviewed with the VP of sales. The next step was to come back and interview with the individual managers and you would be working for one of them. Once you pass that step they have you do a ride share with someone. The last step is to come in and do a power point presentation in front of VP and individual managers. If you make it to the ride share and presentation they really want you on their team it's just a matter of weather you can present or not.

I applied online. The process took 2 weeks – interviewed at ADP (Buena Park, CA) in July 2014.
I was so excited to be considered for a position withing ADP. It was the standard phone interview which lead to another phone interview with the manager of the department. He loved my experience with Insurance before and asked me to come in for a sit in with one of the top producers. That day came, and i was in awe with the opportunity to be able to work with this company. I loved the atmosphere and the energy. While sitting with the producer, i learned the day to day activities and also the culture and it fit my personality perfectly. After an hour, i sat down with the Manager and what I assumed to be his supervisor. The manager asked to to explain my situation and expierience to the supervisor so he can be updated with who i am. After that they asked me a few questions and they asked me if i had any questions which was just one since the phone interview, me and the manager pretty much had a Q and A over the phone. I asked what would prevent me from getting this position, and they had had a small concern but believe that I can do it and fit in perfectly and that I would be a top candidate. They let me know that they would let me know that Friday or the following Monday.
Today about a week and half later no word from anyone. I have emailed and contacted the manager and the recruiter and no callbacks or email replies. After reading everyone elses repsonses, i thought i would have known by now the decision but i am assuming that they went withj someone else. But how hard is it to keep the timeframe or either call or respond to give an update to the candidate? This is very unprofessional and now what I expected from this company who I researched has a great reputation. I'm very dissappointed.

I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 weeks – interviewed at ADP (Milford, CT) in June 2014.
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

As far as their hiring and interview process is concerned, I didn't agree with the hiring practices at ADP. I was asked to take an exam where I was informed that I wouldn't be an ideal candidate for the position yet I would make a fantastic manager of that team. That made absolutely no sense to me.

I applied through an employee referral. The process took 4+ weeks – interviewed at ADP (Tucson, AZ) in December 2013.
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.

I applied through a recruiter – interviewed at ADP (Overland Park, KS) in November 2013.
First phone interview was with the recruiter. Second phone interview was with the VP of Sales. Third interview was a face to face meeting with the VP of Sales and two Sales Managers. I'm still waiting to hear what the fourth interview will consist of.

I applied through a recruiter. The process took 4 weeks – interviewed at ADP in October 2013.
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.

I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 days – interviewed at ADP (Salt Lake City, UT) in September 2013.
Was referred by VP of Sales from child company that had previously worked in this department and he said that I was well suited for this position. This was a second attempt to apply. First time just got a denial just after submitting application. Another position opened up and tried again. Contacted recruiter from previous attempt and was given an online interview. This was kind of suspect because it was an interview I did at any given time, no interviewer. What was to give me a real chance and them a real feeling of my ability to interact (since this is the basis of the position)? I had my hesitations but did my best and thought that I did an exceptional job answering questions and presentation of what I bring to the table. I strongly felt that I would get another interview, if this was even viewed. Recorded it on Friday at 2:00 and by Monday at 1:30 I had received notice that they were going to consider different candidates with more qualifications that closely match. I feel like I wasn't ever seriously considered. Though my experience is well above the requirements, I was very disappointed with the overall handling of the application.
