SBS Outside Sales Interview

Anonymous Interview Candidate
Miami, FL

The process took 2 weeks - interviewed at ADP.

Interview Details – Interviews with Sales Managers, Field Ride, then met with VP Sales. They like high energy individuals with some experience and of course, professionalism. They look for a certain type of candidate. If you are not a social being and a go getter don't waste your time. Have multiple friends that work there and they all have similar qualities and characteristics. They all love their job too. Great resume builder or long term sales job with growth. I lacked the sales experience and the interview experience.

Interview Question – Basic behavioral interview questions. Try to "stand out". That which I did not do well enough.   View Answer

Client Service Interview

Anonymous Employee

I applied online and the process took 2 months - interviewed at ADP in April 2010.

Interview Details – Expect a long process, interviewing is highly behavioral questioning. Tell me about.... you, a time when you calmed down an angry customer, dealt with a belligerent coworker and so on.
Typically there will be more than one manager present for the interview, or you will speak with more than one manager throughout the process.

Interview Question – Why do you want to work here?   View Answers (2)
