I applied online. The process took 6+ weeks – interviewed at Paychex (Rochester, NY) in March 2011.
The interview process consisted of the exam (stupid leftover remnant of the Golisano days) and many in person interviews. I was initially brought in for another position then they changed their minds and had me interview for something else. Thankfully I was prepared.

I applied online. The process took 2+ months – interviewed at Paychex.
I thought the interview process was exhausting and thorough. I interviewed with 5 different people. It took at least two weeks to hear back after each interview. I did one phone interview and four in person interviews. After the interviews I did a one hour job shadow. I thought I had the job in the bag, but they told me they went with an internal candidate after I went through two months of interviews. It really disappointed me.

I applied online. The process took 2+ months – interviewed at Paychex (Phoenix, AZ) in June 2015.
I applied on the Paychex website and was called by a recruiter out of Albuquerque. Great guy asked a lot of questions regarding experience, resume and behavioral questions. I also took the online assessment and passed. The recruiter informed me he would email local Phoenix office for an interview and was definitely giving me an excellent referral. Two weeks later never heard back. Emailed the recruiter... his response oops I will email them and I will have a manager contact you right away. Got an interview within 1 week. I was interviewed for both jobs at the same time by two people. One lady who took notes and said barely nothing and the other main interviewer lady who asked questions..resume, experience, situations etc. I was then Informed by main interviewer she would decide what position in the company I should be in due to so much experience & being in the corporate world and my interview was excellent.., . I said Ok thats great. I felt good. Days later I saw more jobs ads up on Paychex website in Phoenix and thought hmmm.. well which one are they interested in me for since interviewer stated wow so much experience and this interview was excellent we will get back with you. I called the recruiter out of Albuquerque and got voice mail left message to inform him my interview went well and I had questions about jobs at Paychex. Well guess what within not even 10 minutes I received a email saying we are not interested in you at all to work at Paychex. Whats this all about. Talk about a head game.. I"m disappointed. OH well. I left a major corporation due to reduction nationwide in force after 20+ years of an excellent employment. Very unprofessional experience.. Not just because I did not get the job. DONT GO THERE IN PHOENIX!!

I applied through a recruiter – interviewed at Paychex (Chicago, IL) in January 2013.
Interview process was not good. I was not given any date/time when they would do them. They came up to me and said time to interview. Would have been great to prepare and have time to clear your head before the interview. Unfortunately , I was thinking about what I was working on during the interview.

lenghty but through. Began with a phone interview and then a face to face. There were several people invloved prior to the ultimate hiring manager. Tough questions and some personality test but nothing too difficult. Typicall successes and areas of improvement questions. Be prepared to discuss the reasoning behind why you left any other companies and chose to move to other companies.
