    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at Paycom (Oklahoma City, OK) in January 2015.

    Interview

    Very easy process! Phone interview, in person interview and shadowing. They made sure to go into detail about their expectations, job requirements and give me a tour. I felt very welcome even before joining the team. Paycom is very good about making sure it a good fit for both parties. They want people to join their team who want to be here.

    Sales Representative Interview

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at Paycom (Seattle, WA) in October 2013.

    Interview

    Challenging yet very helpful for understanding the role...Several levels of screening and a cold calling session to demonstrate the ability to set quality appointments. This definitely pushed my comfort level but I think it is an excellent metric for both the company and applicant in determining a whether the role is a good fit or not.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Paycom (Oklahoma City, OK) in June 2015.

    Interview

    I applied online for a couple of different positions & received a call from a recruiter within a couple of days. She asked me a few questions about my background on the phone. At the conclusion of the call she sent me an email with a typing test, 10 key test, excel test, & a personality assessment. I was contacted the next day after completing these and offered an interview for a different position than I had applied for based on my test scores & I was set up for an interview. I had to take a reasoning & math assessment when I came in and was told if I didn't score high enough I would be interviewed for a different position. I scored high enough & had roughly a 10 min interview where I was asked about previous work history, future plans, etc. I was told I would receive a call or email in the next business day or so. The next day I was contacted for a second interview with the department head. That interview was more in depth and lasted around 25 minutes. At the conclusion of the interview my recruiter came in & offered me a job offer contingent upon a background, credit, & drug screening.

    Application

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at Paycom in April 2015.

    Interview

    This was the strangest interview I have ever been a part of. When my interviewer saw that I had a list of several questions prepared, he stopped interviewing me and had me just ask my questions. He then proceeded to dodge most of them. When I asked about the characteristics of management in the company, his response was, "Why would you need to know that? What if I was the worst manager in the country but you could still pay cash for a Range Rover?" Well, then I'd be an unhappy person in a pointless car. It made me very uneasy. He asked several other questions around that theme, "What if you were constantly micromanaged but made 200k?" "What if I was a great mentor but you could only make 70k?"

    First, a couple of phone interviews from the recruiter. The recruiter explained the process in-depth, letting me know there would be a drug screening and credit check if chosen. Then a 1-1 typical on-site interview of job related questions was conducted in which I showed an online portfolio.

    Went through a head hunter who contacted me. Brief phone screening to see if you would potentially be a good fit. Met with the branch manager who interviewed me for about an hour. Asked me to come back for a phone canvassing session. Came in at 8 and worked until 12. You need to get 3 confirmed appointments. Was able to accomplish this. Came back for an interview with the regional manager.
