    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2+ monthsinterviewed at Paycor.

    Interview Details

    The Paycor interview process is a lengthy process. You will usually start off by meeting the Regional Sales Manager for a casual conversation to get to know more about the company and the culture. If you and the RSD think you are a good fit you will the move on to meeting the Regional Vice President of Sales (typically in person or via phone). If you pass the VP interview you will be asked to complete a personality test that consists of 200 or so questions about your personality and some math problems. The final step is an interview with an HR executive. After that all the people you interview with have a summit to say Yes or No. Then you will receive an offer.

    Interview Details

    Technical interview by Adam Koch and Adam Leisring on coding approaches, some things about Test Cases, no real surprises. I was asked about my approaches to identifying objects, a few things about Selenium. I was asked how to store data, some more things about SQL, stored procedures. If I remember correctly there were also come Coded UI questions and object oriented principles.

    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2+ monthsinterviewed at Paycor.

    Interview Details

    Very thorough. Mulitple points of contact and many steps.It seemed that they place too much power in the hands of field-level management. Nearly empowering them to pick who they want to work with. Last interview I had felt almost like a sorority/fraternity rush party. Had great rapport with hiring manager.

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Cincinnati, OH
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Paycor in May 2014.

    Interview Details

    Submitted resume. Received call from HR department and scheduled phone interview. Phone interview never happened as HR person had multiple commitments and could not get free. They require you to take online personality profile assessment. Per interviewers, no one actually looks at or uses the assessment. Scheduled meeting for in person interview with existing application development managers

    Interview Questions
    • There were no questions related to managing developers, projects or growing developers. All questions were related to architecture. Position description is for a team manager, but interviewers are looking for a tech lead.   Answer Question

    Interview Details

    interview process was very poorly conducted. Rescheduled several times, Regional Manager was not very impressive. Although they made the position sound like one of extreme importance, it was suited to young inexperienced candidates. Pay was well below industry averages

    Major Markets Account Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Atlanta, GA
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Atlanta, GA
    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2+ weeksinterviewed at Paycor in January 2014.

    Interview Details

    I was contacted by the corporate recruiter through LinkedIn. He sent a short video about the company and why it was a good time to join the sales team. I had never considered a payroll company in my search but I like what I heard in the video. Also the recruiter was SUPER passionate about the company and he got me excited to explore the opportunity further. If it wasn't for him I wouldn't have. I had back to back phone interviews with each Regional Sales Manager (2 total in Atlanta alone) and then I had back to back in person interviews the following week. After that I met with the District Manager and he vetoed me (big mistake!). They have a policy that if anyone along the way veto's a candidate then that's it. See ya, thanks for coming out. If I continued on I would have had to do a role play in the office and then a phone or skype interview with the Corporate office as the last step.

    Although I didn't get the job, the process was fair and professional. No complaints whatsoever (again, b/c the recruiter was fantastic).

    Interview Questions
    • I didn't have industry experience but I have 13 years of outside sales experience so a lot of time was spent discussing who I prospected, how I conducted meetings, and how I managed my assigned territory. No really unexpected or difficult question but they really want to make sure you are cut out for the job. There's a lot of canvassing and prospecting and it's a very competitive space. They are up front and good about managing your expectations.   Answer Question

    They Ever Let Me Know - In Fact Was Never Told Up Front If IT Was An Interview Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Cincinnati, OH
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Cincinnati, OH
    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3 daysinterviewed at Paycor in November 2013.

    Interview Details

    I went in on the advise of a third-party recruiter. After the first urgently scheduled appointment a second appointment was, again urgently, scheduled. 1st- their internal recruiting team at one point almost seemed to be trying to under cut the external recruiter. 2nd- I was never offered a job title or job description. In the first interview it was apparent I was brought in to asses my fit into a specific set of technical skills. In the second, I met with three people. The first person, was assessing my personalty, the second my technical skills (of a job I was never certainly told what it was), and the third person - a director who seemed largely disinterested in being there as she hunted and pecked her iPad; appeared to only be there as filler; I guessing while the others discussed my "application".

    Interview Questions
    • There was a certain amount of trying to reach my technical in SQL development but nothing seemed to ever satisfy. Perhaps I would have done better if I could have screens in front of them to explain what they need to know in order to effectively ask their questions.   Answer Question

    Major Markets Account Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at Paycor.

    Interview Details

    Applied to job online through the typical process of entering information and uploading resume. Was contacted by an internal recruiter, whom I had contact with about a year prior when he was looking for people, so I felt good about my chances at that point. Also had a friend who did some consulting work for them and had him put in a plug for me. I was trying to hit all the boxes from the outside and inside. The interview was with the hiring manager and the VP of the division. Spent about an hour with each person and they took me through their sales process, which was very similar to what I was used to: Prospect, Qualify, Gather Requirements, Propose, Negotiate and Close. They did not ask me the typical behavioral questions that I was prepared for, rather the second interviewer asked me to take me through the highlights of my career. I took this as an opportunity to show him that I can work at all levels within an organization, communicate inside and outside, be professional and close business. While I did not get to the next stage, I was a bit miffed that I got a very standard form letter of rejection and no personalization. Looks like a great company to work for with their growth and I will continue to try to get in.
