Associate District Manager Small Business Services Interview (Neutral Experience)
Interviewed at ADP
Interview Details – 1. Phone Screen (say you're money motivated, results-oriented, and talk confidently and ask to be moved forward). 2. 1v1 with VP (you must follow up STRONG after this interview). 3. 2V1 with Sales Executives (Don't give them any red flags - show your personality, too). 4. Ride Along, ask lots of questions and make sure you get the rep's recommendation 5.) role-play (make sure you ask the "client" lots of questions! The client will probably be the VP of sales. They are looking for personality, probing questions, and asking for the close. They won't let you close - they'll try and shut down anything you say. Try and stay strong).
Was told that I did well and I should receive word if I get the job in a couple days - it's now the end of a couple days and I have received no word. ADP interviews a lot of people and they will show no respect for you or your time, so be prepared. You're going to have to kiss a lot of you know what to get this job, with lots of follow up emails after every step in the process.
Interview Question – During the role play: "I don't want to change. Everything I have works fine." Answer Question
SBS Associate District Manager Interview (Neutral Experience)

After the phone interview you will get passed to either the VP or SE for more detailed interview. After that interview you will be asked to go on a ride with a District Manager. On that ride day you will detailed to go gather some business cards, and "The Four Corners"...
Interview Question – In 30 seconds tell me why I should even pass you on to the ride day? Answer Question

I applied through an employee referral and the process took 4+ weeks - interviewed at ADP in December 2013.
Interview Details – A standard phone call with the sales recruiter was the first step. Reviewed the resume, discussed why ADP, why leaving current positions, and what my previous positions entailed for responsibilites and accomplishments. Next was a conversational interview with the district vice president. AFter that, I was assigned a presentation on the affordable care act and met with the district vp and hiring manager to present. Again, conversational. Noting behavior per se.

Outside Sales Representative Interview (Neutral Experience; Average Interview)
I applied online and the process took 3 months - interviewed at ADP.
Interview Details – The interview process with ADP was very long. I had a first interview in December and finished the process in March. The hiring manager told me on my last interview that he was going to hire me. I had not heard from the company in over a month even though I had contacted them multiple times. I finally heard from the recruiter and was told they wanted to hire me for an internship. I found this insulting because I was told many times that I was the perfect candidate for the job from multiple people I interviewed with. I always had to contact the recruiter or the hiring manager myself after an interview. I felt like the whole process was very unorganized and really turned me off from the company.
Interview Question – A lot of behavioral questions. Tell me a time when you were patient? Tell me a time when you were persistent? etc. Answer Question
Senior Configuration Analyst Interview (Neutral Experience; Difficult Interview)
I applied through an employee referral and the process took 4 weeks - interviewed at ADP.
Interview Details – Very tough interview process. They conduct it panel style and don't give many breaks in between questions. There is some aptitude testing that helps them gauge your analytic skills.
Interview Question – Majority of them were based around "Tell me about a time when..." and you would describe the situation and resolution. Answer Question

Pros: “Uncapped commissions is great considering the salary is lower than the typical sales job. They are flexible with time off and for the most part you can have a good work-life balance…” “Uncapped commissions is great considering the salary is lower than the typical sales job. They are flexible with time off and for the most part you can have a good work-life balance. Training is great and they have great benefits. Ability to move to different aspects of ADP. Ability to be an off-site rep and not have a manager asking about your every step.” – Full Review
