Human Resources Generalist Interview

Anonymous Employee
New York, NY

I applied through an employee referral and the process took 2+ weeks - interviewed at Paychex in November 2009.

Interview Details – Very quick to contact you although the process is rather lengthy. It is usually about 6 interviews before you know if you were hired.

Interview Question – They will typically ask you about how you would deal with problematic clients asking for more than the company can provide.   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – very unorthodox and unorganized.

Human Resource Generalist Interview

Human Resource Generalist
New York, NY

I applied through other source and the process took 3 weeks - interviewed at Paychex in March 2011.

Interview Details – I did not initially apply for the position; the manager that ended up hiring me found my information online. About 3 days after requesting my resume, she called me to tell me more about the position. She then proceeded to conduct what I would consider to be a phone interview. She asked about my background and several behavioral questions. At the conclusion of the phone interview, she asked me to come in to the office a week later.

The office interview was long and intense but not difficult. I spoke with the manager and 4 members of the team of people with whom I would work. The interview lasted about two hours. It was primarily conversational, but peppered with behavioral questions. The interviewers spent a great deal of time talking.

About four days later the manager called me to set up a time for me to meet two additional members of the team. This interview/meeting lasted about 1 1/2 hours. At the conclusion of the meeting, I was told that they really liked me and were prepared to make me an offer, but needed to contact my references. They contacted my references and within 3 hours of my second interview, I received an offer.

A background check and drug screen were required.
