- Declined OfferNeutral ExperienceAverage Interview
I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 4 weeks – interviewed at Paycom (San Francisco, CA) in February 2015.
Introduced to Paycom by recruiting agency. Process included phone screen, interview with Sales Manager, four hours cold calling, and a final interview with VP. They look for you to show resolve when cold calling, don't set down the phone and be ready to overcome a lot of objections.
Reasons for Declining
I gage the value a company places on their people by their willingness to negotiate an offer. I asked for an additional $3k and a fully paid phone (they only offer $25/month credit). Paycom was unwilling to negotiate anything. Additionally, I do not like the idea of using my own vehicle as transportation to/from appointments. I was initially prepared to except an offer, but the negotiation process was red flag. If a company won't fight to get you on their team than it isn't a place you should want to work.

I applied online. The process took 5 days – interviewed at Paycom (Oklahoma City, OK) in March 2015.
I applied for a job online and was then contacted by a recruiter shortly after. She asked me what I was looking for job wise and sent me some online aptitude tests for excel, 10-key and typing. The day after submitting my scores, she called me in the morning eager to set up an in person interview with me. I went in on a Friday, took another assessment and then met with a team lead. The team lead let me know immediately after the interview that he wanted me to meet with his supervisor for a second and final interview. My recruiter called me back within 10 minutes to set it up. Over all it was a very streamlined process I think and I felt good about it.

- No OfferNeutral Experience
The process took a week – interviewed at Paycom (Denver, CO).
It wasn't too difficult. You just need to relate your past sales experience. They are looking for aggression and grit. You need to convey that you will stick with it no matter what. You then have an onsite interview and you have to set 3 appointments from 9 until noon. If you can do that you get to the final interview with the vp.

I applied in-person – interviewed at Paycom.
One phone screening, this is straight forward, behavior and guestimating your amount of skill level with coding. Next will be an interview. Then another, then finally one last interview. Overall, the process is not hard.

The process took a week – interviewed at Paycom (Charlotte, NC).
Interviewed with recruiter , he asked basic questions and gave a description. Next was being referred to the paycom office sales manager. She was very nice. A lot of detail oriented questions but I felt good coming out. I was the ideal candidate. Had massive successful experience in sales and thought I would hear back for the next round which was going to be a shadow with them, potentially making sales calls to see how I would do. Heard nothing back from them. No follow up at all. Not even a rejection. Seems they already had their candidate ready and we're just interviewing to interview. Moral of story they will likely have horrible communication throughout the whole process and leave you upset trying to figure out why

I applied through an employee referral – interviewed at Paycom.
Had phone interview a few days after applying. Phone interview seemed promising. Then was asked to come for in-person interview. Interviewers were not very friendly or enthusiastic. Continued to ask questions related to my current position versus why I wanted a career with Paycom. I knew walking out I would not get an offer. I felt like they did not even try to get to know me and what I could offer to their team.

I applied through college or university. The process took 2 days – interviewed at Paycom (Oklahoma City, OK) in February 2015.
Interview lasted 20 to 30 minutes. They asked alot of basic technical questions. It was pretty straightforward interview. They also asked about your previous programming experience and how you can contribute to this company.

I applied through a recruiter. The process took 6+ months – interviewed at Paycom (Indianapolis, IN) in February 2015.
Hounded on by three recruiters on LinkedIn, to months of phone calls and emails, meeting a hiring manager at Paycom felt necessary. Happily employed with my current company, the Glassdoor reviews (which, by the way, is fantastic marketing) appeared worthwhile enough to check into. After patiently waiting 25 minutes in the lobby of your stereotypical, suburban finance building, the hiring manager and I wasted another 45 minutes discussing golf.

I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 weeks – interviewed at Paycom (Oklahoma City, OK) in February 2015.
A recruiter called me after finding my resume on Monster.com and thought I would be a perfect fit for the CRR position at Paycom. She sent my information over to the internal recruiter at Paycom and had that person get in contact with me to set up a phone interview. We agreed on February 6th which was a Friday and I never heard from her. The following week, I received an email asking to set up another phone interview at another time early in the morning. The interview went well and we scheduled the 2nd phone interview which would then be with the CRR manager the following day. I prepared and followed all instructions online filling out a detailed application and questionnaire. Before I began to prepare for the 2nd phone interview, I received an email telling me that the Irvine CRR position had been filled and asking if I'd like to work in the LA office which is about 2 hours away. I politely declined because of the distance and commute, but asked to keep my information on file in case of any opportunities. Immediately, an opportunity arose for a transition/training position in Irvine. Unfortunately, I am looking for a sales/marketing career and I am not interested. The interview process was not very organized and lacked concern for the employee's best interest.

I applied online. The process took 5+ weeks – interviewed at Paycom (Oklahoma City, OK).
The process was promising and inviting. Good follow up and guide to the interview. Interview was done by Department topshots. The interview felt like a ritual they were tired of doing. Enthusiasm was not high on their part all through and it wasn't Friday.

The perks are amazing with a beautiful facility delicious lunches (only $4) and most of my team takes advantage of the boot camp at lunch! Everyone here smiles and is very happy. The leadership group is so encouraging and motivating to everyone. They offer very progressive compensation plans as you finish your training programs and take on more. I love seeing all of the employee referrals that start. You want to be friends with the people you work beside so it is great that Paycom recognizes this and they pay a $500 referral fee! I have already earned $1000!! Our sales force is so impressive. They are some of the smartest and most strategic minded professionals I have ever seen. I wish I could sell because I would want to be one of them for the money and just to be part of that team!” – Full Review
