    Outside Sales Representative Interview

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 6 weeks. I interviewed at Paychex (New York, NY) in July 2015.

    Interview

    The process is rather lengthy about at least 3-4 weeks. I was contacted by an outside recruiter who screened me then put me in touch with an in-house recruiter who screened me again. She put me through a personality/skills assessment that takes an 1 hour and 45 minutes. We spoke a second time about my background. I then interviewed with district sales manger. Second interview would be with another equivalent sales manager and then regional head of sales. They are very upfront and clear about the overall process.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through other source. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Paychex (New York, NY) in October 2013.

    Interview

    It was strange because I was already with the company so it was a fairly easy process and not much explanation other than you want me to be on your team. I made good numbers in my entry level role so much of the interview process was more me interviewing the office

    Human Resource Generalist Interview

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through other source. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Paychex (New York, NY) in March 2011.

    Interview

    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.
