I applied through college or university and the process took 3 months - interviewed at ADP.
Interview Details – I am a college student and got an entry level sales job with ADP. I got in contact with a recruiter and they were extremely helpful throughout the process. I did a phone interview with the recruiter and then had to do a digital interview, then a month later I interviewed with the VP of small business and we talked for about 30 minutes about why sales is for me, and why I want to work for ADP. I ended up getting a 6 week internship, which means I could potentially get the job at the end. (I was told that about 90% of the interns get the job)
Interview Question – Sell me this pen. Answer Question
I applied through an employee referral and the process took 3 weeks - interviewed at ADP in November 2013.
Interview Details – I was emailed by the recruiter and asked to complete an automated video interview. You set up your computer and camera and begin the interview. Once you press start for the first question, you have 30 seconds to prepare before the video begins recording. The you can take as much time as you want before starting the next question. There were 8 questions asked, here are a few: 1. Tell me about yourself. 2. Name 2-3 things that motivate you. 3. Which do you prefer Account Management or Sales and why. 4. Describe your biggest achievement 5. Give an example of a time when you had to negotiate.
The automated video interview is awkward. I did not feel like I did very well on it, but I got an email from the recruiter setting up a time for us to speak on the phone. During this phone meeting she explained the job a little bit and asked if I had any questions. We then set up a meeting with the VP of small business sales for 8 days later.
The interview with the VP lasted about an hour and he seemed like a nice/cool guy. He talked to me about my resume and asked me about my achievement that I was most proud of. He then asks a few personality questions which have right and wrong answers, so do not get them wrong:
1. If I were to hire you and your buddy from your hometown, given that you both put in the same amount of effort, same hours, neither is smarter than the other... You are both exactly the same. After 6 months one of you if performing better that the other... Why is that?
-During my time at work I learn, take the path of least resistance (sell to restaurants bc thats where my experience is). Is some of the ways he answered the question.
2. Would you rather be the 8th highest salesman and have everyone in the office like you or be #1 in the office and everyone hates you.
-Answer is to be #1 bc that is why you are there, to make money for yourself and the company. "In sales you have to be competitive."
3. Which would you prefer:
To spend a day with a mentor setting some appointments and have the mentor accompany you to the businesses to sell for one day.
Have an operation manual given to you for a week to study before you start.
-The correct answer is to go with the mentor
At the end of the interview he told me that everything went well, but that next time he wanted me to show him that I could match someone's energy that's more enthusiastic (I'm a laid-back guy).
The following day I received a call from his assistant scheduling a ride-along with one of the top performing sales reps.
The ride-along is went well and it was an interesting experience. We visited a bank that she uses to get referrals and went door to door prospecting at different businesses and we got along great. I expected to have to try and prospect myself, but she never asked me to do it and she wanted to go back to the office bc it was raining. At the end of the ride-along the sales rep assured me saying that she was going to recommend me and that I should get a call to set up the panel interview in the next few days.
After three work days I got an email saying they were not going to offer me the job. I have asked all 4 people that I had contact with for some feedback, but none has been provided. I guess I should have been more enthusiastic during the ride-along!
If you are moved forward, past the ride-along, there is a panel interview with all of the sales managers and sometimes a role-play.

Interview Question – Name three strengths and three weaknesses View Answer
I applied online and the process took 3 weeks - interviewed at ADP in November 2013.
Interview Details – I was initially contacted by a recruiter after submitting a resume and cover letter. We set up a phone interview. The recruiter was engaging, asked solid / typical interview questions, and was an all around pleasant experience. From there, I was set up to have an in person interview with the hiring Manager / VP of the office.
Here is where things began to change. I drove 3 hours for this interview, which was fine. I am looking to relocate so I should expect that. I told the recruiter where I lived and had all my current addresses on the material I sent in (Resume, Cover Letter, etc...). I am told immediately when I meet the manager that it will be a brief interview, so don't be worried. Ok, fine, I understand they have busy jobs. Short, brief, and to the point. Sounds good to me.
However, during the course of the 15 minute interview. I am asked really only three questions 1) Tell me about this on your resume 2) Explain how this relates to ADP and what we do 3) rank these 4 terms ( listening, closing, etc...) in order of importance. I understand this is for a sales position so I ran with it. I interjected as much info as I could, expanded with specific examples from my experience, and sold myself. There is only so much you can do without being asked specific questions.
To say the least, I was very disappointed with the interview. I was not asked any behavioral questions like it stated I would be in the preceding email. In addition, the lack of enthusiasm in the interview for a company that thrives and wants "high energy" was saddening. My phone interview was longer, more in depth, and more engaging. I was expecting nothing less then that from an in person interview.
I sent a follow-up email thanking them for their time and that I looked forward to hearing back from then and so on. A few days later I got a generic response from an office email saying they were going a different direction ( though at this time it didn't really matter as I had decided they weren't a company I wanted to work for anyway). But the lack of professionalism to respond to my direct email to the manager I met with was shocking. Surely, I figured, when you get down to a round of interviews with less then 10 candidates they have the time and decency to respond directly. Unfortunately, I was proven wrong. I still think ADP is a good company overall, but the culture and atmosphere certainly seem to change depending on the office.
Interview Question – Not enough questions Answer Question
I applied through an employee referral and the process took 3 months - interviewed at ADP in February 2012.
Interview Details – Long, drawn out, interviewed first Monday in Feb of 2012, next step heard back end of Feb and then nothing until April of 2012 only because I kept hounding them on a decision because I needed to know whether or not to accept another offer. Seemed like they dragged their feet and were still interviewing in April.
