Executive Sales Representative Interview

Anonymous Interview Candidate in Denver, CO
Accepted Offer
Positive Experience
Difficult Interview

Application

I applied online. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Paycom (Denver, CO) in May 2011.

Interview

The interview process is very challenging. Only about 1 of every 12000 applicants get hired. The interview process is a four step interview. 1st is with the branch manager. After that they put you on the phones and phone canvass for 4 hours. If you set 3 appointments, you move on to interview with the regional manager. If you survive that interview, then you interview with the CEO of the company. In each interview they want a high pepped up version of you. You will have to close each interview by overcoming objections and asking to move forward to the next step. Do research on the company. This is a great opportunity if you get hired but the first year working there will be the toughest. Good luck

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 1+ weekinterviewed at Paycom (Saint Louis, MO) in May 2013.

    Interview

    It's a challenging interview process, but I was able to get through in less than 2 weeks. Started off with a phone interview then I was able to go into the office to meet the manager (wear a full suit or you will stand out). I liked the energy in the office and everyone seemed to like being there. Everyone was really professional and helpful which was important to me. After a detailed interview with the manager, I was invited back from the phone calling session. I had to get there at 7:45, but was able to meet the team and get advice from them. From there I interviewed with the VP. They are obviously looking for a very specific person and there was a lot of competition for the position. The job seems pretty high-level; I guess that is why they pay so much.

    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter – interviewed at Paycom (Dallas, TX).

    Interview

    Initial communication and planning of my interview was strong. The recruiting department always contacted me in a timely manner. It was a tough interview process, but it was thorough and well worth it. I feel as though the interview prepared me best for the position I now currently have, and I feel that the interview ensures no one gets hired that does not meet the Paycom criteria.

    Negotiation

    I did not negotiate salary because it is a generous offer that I approved of.

    The interview process is hands-on. You come in, meet the team, make cold calls and interact with the other sales reps. Paycom values their culture and you must have a positive attitude, strong worth ethic and drive.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Paycom (Denver, CO).

    Interview

    Phone interview w recruiter and then multiple interviews with sales managers in person and via video conference. The in person interview was with the sales manager and then there was a video conference interview.

    Offered a ride along but declined to continue the interview process based on the 1st and 2nd interview. Their sales office is newer in Denver, seemed as though high turnover which is why they were hiring.

    Interview Questions
