I applied through a recruiter and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Paycom.
Interview Details – I first started interviewing in the Dallas office. The manager there was great but I found out that the Bedford office was closer so I talked to the recruiter I was dealing with and he got me an interview at the Fort Worth office without any issues. The manager at the FW office was great-they were professional and very respectful of my current job. The next step after the initial interview was a phone canvas session where you need to book three appointments. I did not have any issues with this as I have experience with outbound calls. Next was my video interview with the regional manager- Paycom was once again very sensitive to my schedule making arrangements to interview me at 6PM my time, (7PM where the regional manager was). After the video chat was a ridealong which seemed to me to be strictly an opportunity for the candidate to see if the company was a good fit for them. The sales rep I shadowed did very well and had excellent delivery.
Unfortunately at this point I decided to pursue a job in a different region of the country so the interview process stopped here for me. I would recommend looking into Paycom for anybody looking to excel in their sales career. I could not be any more impressed with the three managers I dealt with.
Interview Question – What books have you been reading? Answer Question
I applied online and interviewed at Paycom.
Interview Details – I got a phone call from the recruiter after I applied online and asked me a few questions then set up a meeting with the Sales Manager. He was uninviting and unprofessional from the start. He had a stack of resumes so it seemed like he was interviewing many people. His negative attitude of not wanting to be there in the interview and his pride was the biggest turn off. I felt like I was being attacked as opposed to trying to find out about the my qualifications. The position has been open for a very long time and is still open after I interviewed a while ago and with those stacks of resumes I can't imagine them all being unqualified, his negative mindset of not finding the right person to fill the position will produce that result, and he should know that in sales. I left upset and unheard and insulted.
Interview Question – How many interviews have you gone on? How many of them did you get a second interview? which companies? Answer Question
I applied through a recruiter and the process took 4+ weeks - interviewed at Paycom.
Interview Details – Made it to the preliminary first step in the process, had an online webcam interview. Was short and hiring manager seemed disinterested from the beginning.
Interview Question – Why do you want to work for Paycom? View Answer
I applied through a recruiter and the process took a day - interviewed at Paycom.
Interview Details – I applied online directly through the website. I received an email a few weeks later saying that they "decided to pursue other options for this position at this time." A few weeks after that I was contacted by the corporate recruiter on a Friday saying they had come across my resume on CareerBuilder and wanted to talk to me about Paycom. She conducted a brief screening over the phone and said that she wanted to have me meet with the Sales Manager at the nearest branch office the following Monday. She said she would email me information confirming my interview. I did not receive the email till Saturday night (which I thought was odd). I went in to interview with the sales manager. Typical sales interview questions. He said he would let me know if I make it to the next step via the Corporate Recruiter. Later that week I was emailed the same email that I had received the first time I had applied saying again that they "decided to pursue other options for this position at this time."
I applied through a recruiter - interviewed at Paycom in April 2013.
Interview Details – This had to be the most unprofessional interview I have ever encountered. The manager was about 10 minutes late, it lasted all of 10 minutes, and not only did he not ask me any questions about my background, but whenever he did decide to speak up he wouldn't even look me in the eye. He said he did have a concern that I was coming from Pharmaceutical Sales and the sales are different, but sir...look at my resume, I clearly had the experience in transactional sales, way more than my 2 years in pharma. I closed for the next steps at the end of the interview and his response was, "its too early to tell" but got received a rejection email the next morning. I would have declined the offer, anyway.
Very Easy Interview
I applied online and the process took 1 week - interviewed at Paycom in October 2009.
Interview Details – They seem to be more interested in what's on your resume rather than actually talking to the candidate to learn about them. The sales manager asked me 2-3 questions and sat there reading my resume most of the time. That is either poor interview preparation on her part or just a lack of interviewing skills altogether. The interview was only 15 minutes long and there was no value at all in driving down to their office to watch someone read my resume in front of me.
Interview Question – What do you know about PayCom? View Answer
Very Easy Interview
The process took 2 days - interviewed at Paycom in July 2009.
Interview Details – They triple booked the meeting, and then rushed me in and out of the office. I was seen by someone in mid-20's who was very unimpressive. When I went to the job fair, had spoken with the regional manager - well above the guy who opted not to continue thre process with me. Hit it off with the RM..don't know why they then had my interview with an idiot.
Very Easy Interview
I applied through a recruiter - interviewed at Paycom in October 2012.
Interview Details – If you feel like the base salary is too good to be true… that’s because it is. I went to this interview, seemed like a shell of an office with not many people at all, just a big empty space. It was dull and depressing... You only need a 2.5gpa to get this job… if your desperate go for it.

Very Easy Interview
I applied online and the process took 4+ weeks - interviewed at Paycom.
Interview Details – Recruiters were very nice and energetic. Made Paycom to seem like a very friendly environment. My interviewer was a young woman who recently relocated from North Carolina and what turned me off of the company was her comment about being shocked that people refused to speak English to her in Miami. The comment was inappropriate for an interview sounded almost racist towards Hispanic. Being a caucasian Hispanic woman myself, I was taken back and shocked that a manager would have the gumption to mention that in an interview. She seemed moody and arrogant upon her late arrival to the office and nobody appeared happy in the office. You could hear a pin drop and everyone seemed new.
Interview Question – Questions were normal, nothing off base but interviewer did not seem interested in the interviewer. Answer Question
Very Easy Interview
The process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Paycom in January 2011.
Interview Details – I received a call from the recruiter, nice guy, scheduled in a face to face in Irvine, California. The day comes for the big interview in which I so diligently prepared and the door is locked; I knock, no one answers. I call the recruiter and he gives me the number to my interviewer for me to call to have her open the door...OK, cool, kinda weird, but whatever. The interview begins and the interviewer couldn't be more uninterested and distracted. I was asked NO questions regarding sales, none! She asked me "Who I admire the most" and went over my resume and college education. She wasn't interested about the statement on my resume about how I made my current company almost half a million dollars (verifiable) in revenue in a single quarter in 2010. I honestly think I was interviewed because she was forced to. As awkwardly as the interview began it was over. She had a meeting to go to, she told me.
The interview was simple and I nailed it. In short, I'm a good interviewer and I nailed her questions, not that they were challenging, especially the one at the end when they ask you, "Do you have any questions for me"? For those who don't know, this is the time to close the deal, or interview rather.
After the interview, I called the recruiter and we chatted about the interview, good conversation. He says he'll call me the next day to let me know how it went and give me information about the next interview. He never does. If fact I didn't hear a word form him for over two weeks despite my attempts to contact him. I ended up having to call my interviewer to get some closure as I had other offers standing by but was really wanting to work for Paycom. She was surprisingly awkward on the phone, not what you you'd expect from a sales manager, and told me their offices in Oklahoma were interrupted due to the recent inclement weather and she would email him. I didn't hear from them for a few more days to receive an email from a man in their HR department whom I've never spoken with telling me I didn't get the job. Paycom is very unprofessional and might be stepping on their own feet by creating a bad reputation stemming from their interviewees who may or may not have large personal networks of small business within Paycom's target geographical area of operation. Novel complete.

Pros: “Paycom offers the best product and service in the industry so you can be proud of the work you do whether you are recruiting talent, developing software, selling, marketing or serving…” “Paycom offers the best product and service in the industry so you can be proud of the work you do whether you are recruiting talent, developing software, selling, marketing or serving clients. High growth company that offers incredible leadership opportunities with clear career paths, solid training and a "hard work gets rewarded" culture. I have seen a 3000% growth rate in our company size since I started and it's been awesome. Leadership truly cares about employees and offers many perks and benefits that you just don't find at most companies. The high standards in work ethic and attitude have helped build a workforce that is well-liked, respected, appreciated and embraced by those who are part of it. Slackers and bad attitudes don't make it which is refreshing if you have ever worked someplace where management didn't care. Paycom is not just stable, but successful. Budgeting red tape never slows down progress for worthwhile projects and initiatives. Having worked in the non-profit industry it is empowering to know you have the resources you need to be successful.” – Full Review
