I applied online. I interviewed at ADP.
Very quick and to the point the process moved very quickly from beginning to end. Very professional group of sales executives. Started with a conversation with a recruiter through the ladders.

I applied through college or university. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at ADP (Roseland, NJ).
I applied through my college and got an interview call within a week. There were three rounds one at my college and one round with a team member who wants to recruit me and the third with my manager.

Helpful (20)Accepted OfferPositive ExperienceAverage Interview
I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at ADP (Portland, OR) in May 2015.
Process depends on the recruiter. I previously applied for a different position at ADP and the recruiter assigned seemed uninterested and never followed up/let me know next steps. For thai position, the recruiter was very prompt, moved me along in the process quickly, and ensured it was a positive experience. After the phone screen, the 1 hour onsite interview was scheduled 2 days later. The interview went 2 hours but it was because the hiring managers wanted me to sit with a "peer" for 15-20 min to get a feel for the company. Right after the peer, they asked that I interview with the Vice President. I received the offer the next day.

Long and detailed. It was an average interview at first then they do a three panel interview. It's not bad at all. The on boarding process was lengthy but typical stuff including drug test, background check, and employment verification.

I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 5 days. I interviewed at ADP (Dallas, TX) in July 2015.
I first had a phone conversation with the agency recruiter, then she sent my information along to ADP. I received an email a couple of days later from ADP requesting an interview in-person. Once the interview was set-up I visited the campus and proceeded with the 1 hour interview. The woman who interviewed me was a Senior Director. She was very welcoming and nice. She asked me a list of behavioral questions, allowed me to ask questions, then went on to talk about how great it is to work there. The interview went so well that I wanted to give her afterwards.

I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at ADP in July 2015.
Two phone interviews were used. The recruiter interviews and then sets up an interview with the HR director. If you are a top candidate after speaking with the HR director then you interview with the hiring manager.
- Tell me about a time you coached someone to success Answer Question

I applied through a recruiter. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at ADP (Austin, TX) in July 2015.
Female interviewer was over 40 minutes late to begin our interview session... seemed entirely disinterested and disengaged the entire process. Although I am still a young professional, I was made to feel as if I were already too old for the position being that I was not a fresh college graduate. Interview process was standard and the actual interview was shorter than the time I sat waiting for the interview.
- What differentiates you and makes you a better candidate than someone coming directly from college? 1 Answer
- No OfferNegative ExperienceEasy Interview
I applied online. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at ADP (Bloomington, MN) in July 2015.
I interviewed with a recruiter, then with the hiring manager a few days later. The hiring manager asked me to come in for an in-person interview less than a week after that. The in-person interview was very straightforward (ie: Why do you want to work here?). At the conclusion of the interview, I was asked to be an observer of two real live demos as part of the process. I received those invites within a matter of days and spent more than four hours of my own time observing these demos and providing feedback on them. I was told that I would be asked back to pitch a final presentation a few days later... And that is where all communication ended. I was very, very angry about this. I followed up with the hiring manager three times and received canned "we'll get back to you soon" replies. And that's it. After that kind of investment of my time and energy, along with a promise that the next step is coming, that next step should actually come, even if ADP does ultimately select someone else. I will never interview with ADP again and will do whatever I can to ensure that my organizations do not select them for business solutions either. It was a very unprofessional waste of my time and resources.
- Why are you thinking about making a career change now? Answer Question
- Declined OfferNegative Experience
I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at ADP (Pasadena, CA) in July 2015.
Overall, the actual interview experience was just OK. The company seems large, operates in silos, has tenured folks with extensive industry experience but no urgency to deliver results given anticipated red tape before anything can actually begin.
- Explain your background in Agile development and how you'd work across divisions? Answer Question
Reasons for Declining
Not a cultural fit. Also, I was never reimbursed for my $300 in travel expenses after 20 weeks. After inquiry, still be told it's "in process" .... Amazing that a payroll company takes this long to process a payment! Buyer beware :-)

I applied through a recruiter. The process took 6 weeks. I interviewed at ADP (Parsippany, NJ) in July 2015.
The process took at least 6 weeks and I had three different internal (2) and external (1) recruiter contacts. They accommodated me in terms of my work schedule for the phone interviews but the in-person interview was in the middle of the day so I had to take the day off. The in-person interview went very well in my opinion but was too short (1 hour). I felt they were honest which I appreciated. It was not behavioral but theory based - how do you handle stress, how would you get up and running, what are your strengths, etc. ADP HR sent me a candidate survey in the middle of the process but not at the end. I liked that. I gave positive reviews. After the in-person interview, I followed up 4 times with the recruiter over a 2 week period and she didn’t reply until she send a system generate rejection letter that initially went to spam. I thought given the long process, she would at minimum call me back. The in-person interview indicated that I was a final candidate and could receive an offer. After the Hiring manager and spoke 2 weeks after the in person (she offered I could call her any time, which was great), she said there was a change in the Business unit and she did not know if she could hire, but I was still being considered. The recruiter did not want to follow up with me on the phone when I asked to speak to clarification on how we might move forward, but emailed me to ask my questions via email. I really felt like I was bothering her. She never replied to this day. Professionally I have a lot of experience both on the candidate and internal (HR) side in hiring / recruiting and this process was really mixed. I am impressed with the staff and hiring manager who clearly are dedicated and love their jobs. The talent / recruiter part was disappointing. I really felt like I was bothering the recruiter. When I was assigned to the third recruiter, I actually also received a system rejection letter and was surprised to receive a Follow up from the 3rd recruiter that I was still a candidate in the pipeline and was invited in to interview in-person with the hiring manager. I would love to work at ADP – it is an excellent organization and to this day, I am not sure where I stand in the process. In summary, confusion about the process, inconsistent, lac of transparency but clearly employee love to work there and that kept me motivated to stay on top of the process – they have excellent benefits and opportunity to grow. I hope I will be considered for further positions.
