    Interview

    I received an initial call from a Adp recruiter via email ask for my availability for a non technical interview. The next day I received a call. It was brief; questions about past jobs and how they relate to the one I'm interviewing for. Two weeks later I got another email saying Congratulations I made it to the next round and when was unavailable for a in person interview with two managers. Within 2 days I went to the Adp office. Interview was technical but there was no right or wrong answer, more of how you handle a situation. Later that week I received another email asking my availability for a phone interview with a VP. Very brief, more of a do I have any questions that was not answered during my interview. Next day I received a call from HR providing me feedback, then offering me the position

    Interview Questions

    • How would you handle a situation with no manager available.   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    HR asked me what was my ideal pay. I gave him a number and he pretty much met me half way. Which I think was awesome.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at ADP.

    Interview

    It all depends on the need. ADP is big on hiring back ups to fill in for open positions. If they have all positions filled the process can be multiple steps (3 interviews after HR). If they need someone urgently they tend to skip steps.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at ADP.

    Interview

    Had an interview with seven people from different teams. Went through a role-play sales call. Offered to come back and do a job shadow as well. That gave a really good idea of how days are spent and what type of role it was. It felt like it was a laid back atmosphere and a fairly average interview overall.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at ADP.

    Interview

    Initially interviewed by A member of Talent Aquisition. Very friendly and informative. She set me up for the live interview and was spot on with what I should expect at the interview. The interview was professional, positive, and informative. While I was expected to talk about my skills and experiences, the interviewer also shared his role in the company as well as how I would fit within the team. I left feeling very aware of the job and the next steps.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at ADP.

    Interview

    Very competitive four step interview process. The first step is an over-the-phone interview with an ADP recruiter. The second step is a face-to-face interview with the office VP. The third step is a field ride with a Senior District Manager to test your comfort and confidence level with foot prospecting. You'll also have a chance to see a full sales call. The fourth and final step is a sales call with the office VP, and you must sell an ADP service to receive an offer.

    Interview Questions

    • Tell me about a time when you won a competition. Then discuss the steps you took to prepare for the competition.   Answer Question

    Interview

    2 interviews (one with sales executive and one with VP of region); not intimidating, really straight forward and recruiter guides you every step of the way i was an intern and then interviewed for a full time position so it was little less than what is normal for an interview process from what i came to understand but as long as you show you are motivated it will go well for you as this is an entry level sales job
