    The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at ADP in May 2012.

    Interview Details

    I had been contacted by a recruiter regarding the position. The interview went well and was passed along to a recruiter for the company in which a 30 minute phone interview was conducted. She approved of me and passed me along to the next stage which was a field ride which gave me an undertanding of the company. The next step was a 1 on 1 interview with the Sales Manager which went well. 3 days later I was contacted and offered the position and was scheduled to fill out paper work in the next 48 hours. The day of the paperwork completion the Sales Manager contacted me and stated they had changed their mind and want to go another route. I have never been given a job offer and have the company turn around and take it away.

    The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at ADP in March 2011.

    Interview Details

    ADP is a great company. Everyone I came in contact with throughout the interview process was extremely professional and great to talk with.

    I got in contact with a recruiter through a personal reference. I was scheduled for an interview on a Friday, and it went well. Next step was meeting with the other 2 managers and then the ride along afterwards. The ride along consisted of meeting with businesses and banks to discuss their relationships and possible business opportunities.

    After the ride along, we did the role play. It was easy, just focus on how the product would benefit them and ask for the business (close)!! I was offered the position 2 days later.

    I applied online. The process took 1+ weekinterviewed at ADP in December 2009.

    Interview Details

    I applied online and a recruiter called me back within a couple days to hold a phone interview on the spot.
    From there she passed me along to an interview with the regional VP and then I had a field ride with one of the outside sales reps with a role play with one of the sales executives immediately after. The final interview was with the regional VP again and they made me an offer within a couple days.

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at ADP.

    Interview Details

    Interview with recruiter - Interview with sales manager - Trial day - Interview with sales director.
    This role was for outside sales to small businesses 1-49 employees.
    Interviews were all relatively straight forward with no tough questions. The process took around 3 weeks however I declined the role. The knock on door approach may work for Avon Reps or Girl scouts, this is I.T solution sales

    Interview Questions
    Reasons for Declining

    Compensation on offer is way below industry average and there is no territory. i.e knock on doors to make sales. This is IT solutions sales not avon rep. However this appears to be the approach taken

    I applied online. The process took 1+ weekinterviewed at ADP in January 2012.

    Interview Details

    First Interview: The first step is an in person interview with the branch manager and someone else.
    Second Interview: 1) Two consecutive 1:1 interviews, one 2:1 interview, 1 roleplay, 1 ride along. The interview process is from 8 am - 5 pm
    The interviews aren't too hard, but some people will try to be tough on you. It's some basic and some more in depth stuff.

    The process took 6 daysinterviewed at ADP in January 2012.

    Interview Details

    The recruiter was very nice and courteous. Once I had done all the paper work and online tests I had my interview. Process only took about 6 days. On the day of the interview I showed up 20 minutes early. Then 30 minutes after my scheduled interview time I was called into the interviewers office. She had been talking with a co worker about there weekend. I was furious about waiting but sucked it up and the interview went well. I was offered the job but turned it down out of the display of disrespect.
