Account Executive Interview
I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3 weeks – interviewed at Paycom (Chicago, IL) in January 2014.
I contacted a recruiter about the position and was told that I had a solid background for the position and setup an in-person interview at the office in Chicago with the Sales Manager. My first interview was straight forward, pretty basic questions. Tell me about a time... Why are you a good fit for Paycom?
Made it to the second round and had a webcam interview with the regional sales manager. Much more thorough of an interview, really checking to see why you want to sell payroll and work for them. I sold myself and was moved on to a phone canvassing session back in the Chicago office.
I showed up on a Friday morning for a 4 hour cold calling session. You are given a list of numbers to call, a brief script to practice with prior and left to your own devices. They expect you to land 3 confirmed appointments in 4 hours, which is incredibly difficult in that industry. I went on to cold call and land THREE appointments in the allotted time.
The recruiter reached out to me a few days later and told me they were going with someone else. I recommend following up and really getting to know the people in the office you visit as best you can. I feel like they have a strong influence on your hiring managers decision.

I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 weeks – interviewed at Paycom in August 2013.
Was contacted by a third party recruiter, had initial phone screen with recruiter. Then I had a phone conversation with the Business Office Manager, went down and met him in person, after about an hour interview he asked me to speak with his regional manager. Regional manager was in a different part of the country so I did a skype interview. After that interview was asked to come back for a "mock work day" where you had to try and set as many meetings as you could via cold calling before lunch. Finally after that half day, sitting with the team, and having final conversations with Office Manager, I was supposed to meet the VP for a final conversation. Ended up declining moving forward for personal reasons. However, seemed like a good opportunity for entry level, I already had a couple years of sales experience so I was conflicted to accept a new offer to start over. Good place to interview and work if you are looking to test out sales, interview process might be overwhelming for recent grads, but there looks to be long term opportunity and descent salary for entry level.
- Everything was pretty cut and dry. They want to know who you are, your ambitions, and if you're a right fit the organization as this is a tough sales job, but had good compensation from my understanding. Answer Question

I applied through college or university. The process took 2 weeks – interviewed at Paycom (Washington, DC) in April 2012.
I walked in for the interview and the environment was very loud, and I could easily overhear loud laughter and relatively inappropriate jokes coming from a group of 20-somethings (I myself am in my mid twenties) who were very near to the reception area of their office. During the interview the Sales manager whop interviewed me did not seem to want to be there. He consistently yawned throughout the interview and took out his smart phone, playing with the screen.
