    The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at ADP (Houston, TX) in April 2020.

    Interview

    Never have I interviewed for an employer that led me down a hole of 5 interviews in the span of 2 weeks, to be told the position was filled. I literally did the final "all day interview" where you have two morning interviews then an afternoon presentation to then not get the offer. After requesting feedback, I spoke with the VP that said they filled the position DAYS AGO. I literally interviewed for a position that WAS FILLED. Who does that?

    Account Executive Interview

    Negative Experience

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took a week. I interviewed at ADP (Atlanta, GA) in August 2019.

    Interview

    I reached out to one of my personal contacts on LinkedIn to secure an interview, and within hours ADP's internal recruiter reached out to me via email to schedule time for a phone interview. I completed the phone screening with her, and on that call she told me that she would be scheduling me for a face to face interview as the next step. Later received an email from her where she informed me that they were going to backfill the a C-Level sales role before bringing me in for the interview onsite, so that she would need a bit more time to schedule that. I followed up numerous times via phone and email, and she never replied to me again. Literally ghosted me. I even closed the loop 1 month later to thank her for interviewing me and to let her know that I received and accepted another offer, but I would l still love to stay connected - no reply. Very poor experience and follow up. Unfortunately, recruiters like her are the reason that there is such a stigma against recruiters in general.

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at ADP (San Francisco, CA) in January 2019.

    Interview

    There was one initial phone call with the recruiter who then pushed me to the next round to meet who would be my direct report as well as the VP of Sales. After that round, I was invited to do a "field day" with another account executive to see what a day in the life would be for that position. The team was awesome and they answered all of my questions. Seems like a good company to work for.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. I interviewed at ADP (Columbia, MD) in June 2018.

    Interview

    Personal interview with hiring manager. Found hiring manager to be rather egotistical and I was told more about her accomplishments than asked about mine. I thought the purpose of an interview was to find out about the candidate. It was a waste of my time. Could never work for a manager like that!

    Phone interview. The lady called 15 mins late. Then asked questions to which I answered, and then she responds with, "but why," to everything. It was the most ridiculous phone interview

    Interview

    The interview process was very straightforward and overall a positive experience. I first spoke with their recruiting team, who asked me questions about my sales background, motivations and interests in the position. I then interviewed with the office manager, who asked me about relocation and experience [Still in interview process]

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at ADP (Louisville, KY) in January 2018.

    Interview

    After a phone interview with the recruiter and a FaceTime interview with the vice president, I was asked to spend a full day in the field. I emailed the vice president and recruiter three different times over the course of a month to set it up, and I received no reply (not even a rejection notice). More than a month later, the vice president emailed me, stating that the timing didn't work out then, but she'd "quickly" like to move forward now. I took an entire day off my current job to spend a day in the field, and then I was asked to come in for a final interview with less than 24 hours notice. This was a Friday, and I was promised a phone call by Monday. After receiving no phone call, I emailed them on Wednesday morning and received a generic rejection letter that evening. I politely emailed the vice president my concerns with the hiring process (outlining everything I stated here) and how I felt ADP was very disrespectful of my time and I . She replied, "Thanks for the feedback." Had I been extended an offer, I would have declined, based solely on the lack of professional courtesy I was given during the hiring process.

    Interview

    Interviewer was extremely rude to me. Felt less like I was being interviewed for my qualifications and more like I was being judged. I had graduated college the month prior and interviewer asked me why I did not yet have a job and what I should be doing to get a job.
