    Outside Sales Representative Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Application Details

    I applied through other source – interviewed at ADP.

    Interview Details

    I can tell you the recruitment department has no idea what they are doing so they clearly seem to take anyone they can and see who the managers will like. They were all over the place when talking to me, and never sent me the correct information. I was asked to drive to the city where I was interviewing for a day and they asked me to come super early so I did. I met with the VP of sales who gave me general questions, and at this point I learned that they were a low performing office. After I met with a manager and did a sales pitch which was quite easy (he told me I did really good) I went on the field ride. Which is where the red flags came up the sales rep was late to the business, and was in the business texting friends while talking to the client. If this is how a good sales rep acts I wouldn't want to work for this company. I walked out not wanting the job, and got my rejection letter days later

    SBS Associate District Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Phoenix, AZ
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Phoenix, AZ
    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.

    The hiring and interview processes were good. The interview went about 3 hours with very demanding questions. I met first with what would be my colleagues, and then I met with my manager. He was very keen to hire – I could tell quickly. After the interview he gave me a tour of the office.

    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.

    District Manager- SBS Outside Sales Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Application Details

    I applied online – interviewed at ADP.

    Interview Details

    submitted an application online, was contacted by a recruiter who asked basic questions and reassured me that i was a great fit for the position. when i arrive at the facility 15 minutes early they seat me in a shabby intake area. people (including the person who would later interview me) walked passed me, looking me up and down. it was slightly unprofessional, alas i'd probably be doing the same. after waiting for nearly a half hour my interviewer finally called me in. he too, looked me up and down as if to size me up asked a couple of questions and then announced that he wanted me to fight for the position because he 'was ready to end the interview' ...confused i reviewed my accomplishments and why i thought i would be a good fit to which he responded ' has anyone ever told you that you are hmmm sassy?...it's not a good thing.' I think it was the first time i actually rolled my eyes in front of a potential employer...two more interviews follwed with other managers--each trying to 'connect' with me. i didn't really give the company a fair shot after the initial interview as my counterpart's behavior was so offputting. i followed up with friendly e-mails --no one responded. i didn't get any notification that i had been turned down for the position just a request to evaluate the interview process.

    Interview Questions
    • the interviewer--the first one, looked at my resume (clearly not reading it) and said why should i choose you when i could hire someone with a 4.0 gpa. ( my gpa was a cool 3.5) it was sort of off putting and said without reason. i felt he was trying to ruffle my feathers just because--if i wasn't a good fit why would the recruiter contact me in the first place. nothing really made sense....   Answer Question
