    Account Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Saint Petersburg, FL

    Application Details

    I applied online – interviewed at Ceridian.

    Interview Details

    The in-house recruiter for this position lacks adequate interviewing skills. You would meet with the senior management team in a 2nd interview. This team tends to ask behavioral questions -- Tell me about a time where you had to deal with an unhappy client and how you solved the situation. The same question will be asked several different ways throughout the interview.

    Interview Questions
    • Be advised the behavioral questions become redundant throughout the interview process.   Answer Question

    Sales Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Minneapolis, MN
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Minneapolis, MN
    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at Ceridian in June 2012.

    Interview Details

    Three phone screens, intelligence/logic and personality type tests online, in person interview and presentation. Think the tests were important, never got to know results. Read the directions as they are timed. Prep for interview and ask HR rep for tips. I think process is flexible in some ways but not in others. Background check was extensive and took ages. Don't quit your current role until you have it all in writing as they pushed back my start date due to background check delays.

    Interview Questions
    • Nothing surprising or tricky, but this will depend on your hiring manager I suspect.   Answer Question
    Negotiation Details
    Not much negotiation possible. I scored a few extra bennies. Asked for more salary and was turned down flat. Total package was decent but their benefits aren't great.
