    The process took a day - interviewed at ADP in July 2010.

    Interview Details

    I was first contacted by e-mail after submitting my resume online. After receiving a response, the HR administrator set up a time for the phone interview. The interview primarily consisted of questions regarding my prior experiences and why I would be a successful sales representative. The interviewer was very considerate and easy to communicate with.

    Application Details

    I interviewed through an employee referral. The process took 4+ weeks - interviewed at ADP in June 2012.

    Interview Details

    Applied via ADP's website then had an ADP employee refer me, email confirmation a couple weeks later, ADP sales administrator called me to discuss resume and to set up time with one on one interview with sales director, sales director in person interview, group interview in person with multiple sales directors. The in person interview went well, but they wanted someone more aggressive and experience with a quota requirement sales position. According to the sales director I was to meet again for a ride along and final interview, but I was notified via email that ADP will not be moving forward with my employment.

    I interviewed through an employee referral. The process took 4+ weeks - interviewed at ADP in July 2014.

    Interview Details

    1. Submitted resume through an employee referral, got an email asking to set up a phone interview.
    Phone interview was easy and brief- gauging interest in sales and asking questions about your resume.
    2. Passed phone interview and set up an interview with VP of sales
    Seems like a high pressure environment, but they call it "fun and competitive"
    3. Passed that and set up an interview with district manager
    4. Passed that and went for a ride along with an outside sales rep
    Did not follow up- chose a different job
    Make your own schedule and hours, but have to hit weekly quota

    Outside Sales Representative Interview

    Application Details

    I interviewed through a recruiter. The process took 2 weeks - interviewed at ADP.

    Interview Details

    Do not go to this interview if you are a recent graduate. I made the trip to interview for an outside sales position. The person I was supposed to meet with was not able to because she was in a meeting. I spent only fifteen minutes with another person as they told me they do not hire recent graduates. I was not given the opportunity to explain my qualifications, as I did have sales experience. I was also not asked any interview questions. I was very disappointed and thought the whole process was very unprofessional. Save your time and money.

    Application Details

    I interviewed through other source. The process took 1 week - interviewed at ADP in April 2013.

    Interview Details

    Applied through linkedin. Performed a phone interview with someone in HR, and was directed to fill out an application online. It was for the small business, new business development position. A couple of days later I was contacted by the HR rep and scheduled an interview at their office in Richmond, VA. I interviewed with the VP of sales of Virginia. The interview involved your basic Why Sales? Why ADP? What do you know about the position? What is an example of overcoming adversity from your life? How do you feel about cold calling? How would you open up a sales conversation?

    I was not offered the position because I did not have sufficient prospecting experience (as in I'm a B.A. with no sales experience). Or maybe they just said that as an excuse because I might not have appeared as enthusiastic as they would have liked. I tried my best.

    I interviewed through an employee referral. The process took 3 weeks - interviewed at ADP in July 2014.

    Interview Details

    I posted online, and reached out to people in the company through linkedIn. The HR recruiter was extremely pleasant and took the time to explain the company, position as well as expectations for the interview process. After the phone Interview I met with the Regional VP who provided me with his vision for the program and market. He was professional and represented the company very well. I then interviewed with two Sales Managers one who had recently been promoted. The recently promoted Sales Manager asked great questions about my experience and took a general interest in my background and what I could bring to ADP. My final interview was a generic sales presentation about BRO (Business Resource Outsourcing). I received praise from both of the Sales Managers and the VP of Sales for my presentation skills and business acumen. I reached out to the HR Recruiter on the following Monday and was told that I was overqualified for the position. I agreed with their assessment, with 17 years of Management experience it would have been a taking a step back in my career.
