Application

I applied through a recruiter – interviewed at Paycom.

Interview

Very lengthy process but after meeting the other sales reps you understand why. They are very selective and want the cream of the crop.

    I applied online – interviewed at Paycom.

    Interview

    First, there was a phone screening interview with normal questions such as "how did you hear about us", "why do you want to work here." Etc... Then there was an in person interview in their office. Their office was not as I expected and looked as if it was poorly maintained.

    I applied online – interviewed at Paycom.

    Interview

    Interview was rescheduled the day of, but understood that things come up, so I rescheduled. We agree on a different time, and I arrived for an interview the following day with Nico Chiapara of the Los Angeles office. I saw Paycom's reputation manifest itself. He kept me waiting over 30 minutes before I left. I might be entry level, but I understand professionalism, and I do not want to work for someone who does not have their act together. The fact that Nico Chiapara rescheduled then kept me waiting shows that: 1) He is unprofessional, considering I wasn't given a time frame when he would be available, and I wasn't greeted for that matter 2) He is disorganized. 3) That he has poor time management skills. I have interned at fortune 500 companies and was unimpressed, so I withdrew my application. This is a mid sized company, and I believe that this is not understandable for a company with as many resources as it does. I am a young professional and understands that these attributes are critical. Here is the thing: I carved two days to fit around the interviews, do you think you're the only person who is busy? I am busy, and I can stick to a schedule. I went into this knowing that this could be the case. NOTE: Most of the positive reviews for this company are fake. In this case, unfortunately, if it sounds too good to be true, it probably is.

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Paycom.

    Interview

    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.

    I applied online – interviewed at Paycom.

    Interview

    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

    The interview process I took part in was close to 8 weeks long. I had a first interview scheduled, and it was then rescheduled twice within the next 2 weeks. I finally received a first interview over 2 weeks later from when I was told they were interested in setting up a first interview. This was very unfortunate, because AFTER going through the entire phone canvassing and even NEXT interview process 2 weeks later, I was THEN told 1 week later that I would not be getting the offer (May I add that I even made the 3 appointment requirement). Very frustrating that I was led on throughout the whole process and it wasted 7 weeks of my time while I even have a full-time job.

    Interview Questions

    • The phone canvassing part was the most difficult, but also gave you a great feeling of what the job is going to be like. Although, DO NOT give your hopes up even if you schedule the 3 minimal appointments.   Answer Question

    Interview

    There are a few steps involved in the interview process, but the recruiters do a great job of walking you through what is involved for each step. You know where you stand at each point, and each step gives you a look inside the company from a different angle. If you take advantage of it, the interview process gives you a great idea of whether this is the position for you before you take that leap from another employer.
