    Outside Sales Consultant Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Lewisville, TX
    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter - interviewed at Paycom in April 2013.

    Interview Details

    This had to be the most unprofessional interview I have ever encountered. The manager was about 10 minutes late, it lasted all of 10 minutes, and not only did he not ask me any questions about my background, but whenever he did decide to speak up he wouldn't even look me in the eye. He said he did have a concern that I was coming from Pharmaceutical Sales and the sales are different, but sir...look at my resume, I clearly had the experience in transactional sales, way more than my 2 years in pharma. I closed for the next steps at the end of the interview and his response was, "its too early to tell" but got received a rejection email the next morning. I would have declined the offer, anyway.

    Sales Representative Interview

    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 5 days - interviewed at Paycom in February 2013.

    Interview Details

    Paycom has a long interview process. It is my understanding that they are trying to make sure that the company is a good fit for them and for you. My first interview was a phone screen with a recruiter I was working with. They told me the details of the position, comp plan, etc. I was excited to learn more about Paycom because it is a growing company and I wanted to get into outside sales. I then went to an in person interview with the hiring manager. We spent about 30 minutes discussing my background and more details about what I was looking for in a career. I was then moved on to the phone canvassing session. This is a 4 hour block of calling with the rest of the sales reps on the team. You are calling into prospects using other outsourcing companies. I really enjoyed spending time with the rest of the staff, but was not able to set appointments. I actually appreciated the session, as I realized that maybe I wasn't cut out for sales and had no desire to cold call in the future. Overall it was a great experience and I enjoyed my time in the interview process here. I believe that had I made it past the calling I would have had an interview with a vp, a ride along, and a web cam with the CSO.

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2+ weeks - interviewed at Paycom.

    Interview Details

    I met a recruiter at my university career fair. Called by HR the week following, had a 1:1 interview a few days later, & now it's going on 2 weeks without feedback. From my understanding it is a lengthy interviewing process

    I applied online - interviewed at Paycom.

    Interview Details

    First, there was a phone screening interview with normal questions such as "how did you hear about us", "why do you want to work here." Etc... Then there was an in person interview in their office. Their office was not as I expected and looked as if it was poorly maintained.

    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Paycom in March 2012.

    Interview Details

    Contacted by a recruiter by phone and after a 20 minute conversation was asked to schedule a 1:1 interview with regional sales manager. The interview was a standard behavioral interview. During the interview, the interviewer acknowledged that they had been searching for a candidate for the position for several months and no one had "fit the bill" that they were looking for. I received no response after the interview even after attempts to follow up for several weeks. A few months later, I was called by another recruiter interested in scheduling me for an interview for the same position.

    Outside Sales Consultant Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate  in  Miami, FL
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Miami, FL
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Paycom.

    Interview Details

    phone interview, then a face to face interview with the sales manager, then a face to face with a regional manager, then a 4 hour session of phone canvassing (cold calling), then possibly a ride along with a current sales rep, then a final interview with a head hauncho. Honestly, I may have missed a step...its a grueling process!

    Interview Questions
    • Just your typical interview questions about past sales experiences and a "tell me how you handled a challenging situation in your sales career" etc. Honestly, I was not a fan of this company. They miss communicated my interview date and time (frustrating) then, they wanted me to come back in for another phone canvassing session after I had already proven I could do it. Lastly, the sales manager was a huge B****. You could definitely tell she was on her high horse and was not coming down. Obviously not all their managers are like this, but this one def was!   Answer Question
