    Implementation Consultant Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Atlanta, GA
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3+ weeksinterviewed at Ceridian (Atlanta, GA) in July 2015.

    Interview

    Online application followed by phone screen, manager interview (skype), and peer (phone) interview. Due to reorg, also spoke briefly with VP and had (in person) interview with Director, whom will report to. The interviews via phone and skype were relaxed and a good experience. The one in person was more confusing as to how it went and was more intense than the others.

    Interview Questions

    • Soft skills are critical to success in the role, explain how you handle items.   1 Answer
    • Being proactive is another success factor in the role, describe how you show this trait.   1 Answer

    Negotiation

    If you get an offer, get everything in writing before accepting the offer. I have found they promise more than they actually will give (with regards to time off) as well as pay below market rate for experience in field/industry. (For example with 7 years industry experience and 9 years field experience, plus degrees/certifications in my city, according to Kinexa my offer was $15-20K below the market rate (aka average for the range.)) When asking for various minor things - such as cell phone reimbursement or professional annual dues they also won't include that in the offer. They don't negotiate - you either take the offer as is or walk. There is a noncompete included in the pre-employment paperwork.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Ceridian (Minneapolis, MN).

    Interview

    Easygoing phone call screening and then an in-person with a manager and a co-worker. Overall, pretty conversational and friendly. I suppose it depends on who you interview with and the department. Seems like a good company to work for as the people were friendly and cordial.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online – interviewed at Ceridian.

    Interview

    Applied online and had an HR interview within 2 weeks. Followed by a manager interview 2 weeks after. About an hour each. Typical questions were asked by both. HR interview was a bit awkward as the lady was flipping through notes of her scripted questions and you can hear her typing what sounded like your answers verbatim.

    Operations Specialist Interview

    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Interview

    During interview, the Manager claimed that their department had prolific training materials which were updated each quarter. These included step by step instructions on how to perform each function. Also claims were made on teamwork being emphasized and on working together. After I accepted the offer, I found out that the Manager lied about almost everything. They were unprofessional and management constantly spoke badly about previous management and previous employees with whom I had no dealings.

    Interview Questions

    Negotiation

    There was no negotiation. I was told a salary range, and I provided a salary within the range. I was made a low ball offer with no room to negotiate.

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeksinterviewed at Ceridian (Saint Petersburg, FL) in August 2014.

    Interview

    The initial job posting contained very little information regarding the job itself. After applying, a recruiter reached out to me from another state and conducted an initial phone interview, followed by another phone interview with the hiring manager. Next, a 1:1 interview with my manager, followed by an introduction of who my colleagues would be and a side by side discussion with a potential colleague. Finally, a phone interview at the executive level, that led to a final discussion with the hiring manager and offer provided by the recruiter.
