Interview

I was contacted by there internal recruiter that found my resume online. I had one phone interview, one face to face, a ride along, and then had to do a 20 min sales presentation. Overall the process was straight forward and my recruiter was very helpful during the process too.

    Interview

    They first contacted me by phone and thats where we set up the phone interview. During the phone interview the woman I spoke to was very positive and gave me a set of guidelines to follow for the next interview. I then did an in person interview. They asked me to describe how the company works in my own way and then she asked me a series of questions about my self. The whole process took three days. The day after my in person interview I was contacted by email about another interview.

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at ADP (Phila, PA) in March 2015.

    Interview

    Without a referral do not waste your time; fortunately I have one. I was then contacted by a recruiter, and quickly told I will send you an email with a link for you to do a video interview (talking to your web camera answering questions you read yourself). This has to be the worst process I have ever seen put together by an HR team. Talk about making you feel like a number and not wanted. The only individuals who do not care about this process are those using the company for experience and looking to run to a better job as soon as possible. I went through with it just to see what kind of questions were asked for future job interviews, but lost all interest in wanting to be a part of ADP , as a result, and did not waste my time following up, as we all know you must do for a sales job. Good luck keeping talent with these practices.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through other source. I interviewed at ADP.

    Interview

    I can tell you the recruitment department has no idea what they are doing so they clearly seem to take anyone they can and see who the managers will like. They were all over the place when talking to me, and never sent me the correct information. I was asked to drive to the city where I was interviewing for a day and they asked me to come super early so I did. I met with the VP of sales who gave me general questions, and at this point I learned that they were a low performing office. After I met with a manager and did a sales pitch which was quite easy (he told me I did really good) I went on the field ride. Which is where the red flags came up the sales rep was late to the business, and was in the business texting friends while talking to the client. If this is how a good sales rep acts I wouldn't want to work for this company. I walked out not wanting the job, and got my rejection letter days later

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at ADP (Warwick, RI) in March 2015.

    Interview

    It seems like a great company. However, they are very disorganized for being global, and misleading. After three rounds of interviews (two of which were very strange). They advertise their 6 week sales program. I was never given definitive times of a follow up, there is a major gap in HR, and in turn they ended up not offering me the position due to "lack of sales experience". I have been in sales my entire life and was a Marketing Director. As a company, why waste my time and yours. In a positive light, it seems like a great environment and place for growth. However, being a sales representative; if internal HR never accommodates the customer or prominently responds to issues. You will never meet forecasted goals. It will also give you a bad reputation as a sales person. Their high technology systems is great, and everyone was more than friendly. Just be prepared for an interesting interview experience.
