OUTSIDE SALES Interview

OUTSIDE SALES
Minneapolis, MN

I applied online and the process took 3 weeks - interviewed at ADP in June 2014.

Interview Details – Applied through linkedin and got a call from a recruiter about a week later, prior to the phone interview you need to do a quick online interview, Pretty basic questions (Why ADP, Why sales, Time you had to negotiate, etc. Then went in for an in-person interview with the VP of sales in my area. Thought the interview went really well and he asked me to reach out to him in a weeks time but after I tried calling twice I never got through and havent heard back from them since. Overall, it was a great experience.

Interview Question – Have you ever had do negotiate? If so, how did that work out?   Answer Question

OUTSIDE SALES Interview

I interviewed at ADP in August 2013.

Interview Details – Received phone and then in person interview. Phone interview was very general asking questions about qualifications and reason for looking for a new job. In person interview was all over the place in questions. Asked questions about when I graduated High School and College, He even tried to guess my age, asked when I got my married and what my spouse did for a living. Completely unprofessional interview and those questions asked were 100% illegal and irrelevant to the job.

Interview Question – What does your spouse do for a living?   Answer Question

OUTSIDE SALES
Buena Park, CA

I applied through a recruiter and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at ADP in August 2010.

Interview Details – The interview process was nothing out of the ordinary. Phone interview, face to face, ridealong, and then a rols play. I was not offered the position because they didnt think sales was the number 1 career path in my eyes. They are nothing but sales driven! Sell, sell, sell.
