    New Grad Global Product Technology Program Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Alpharetta, GA
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 5+ months. I interviewed at ADP (Alpharetta, GA) in February 2017.

    Interview

    Applied back in November and didn't hear back until February. Which was fine, because of my circumstances at the time. Talked with the recruiter about the position and expressed my interest. First interview was in person, in office. Two very, very nice people talking generally over my resume. They told me then they wanted a second round. Heard back about that a few days later. Scheduling through the process was... a Struggle. I was in contact with 4 recruiters through the process so it made things strained as it was hard to know if everyone was on the same page. There was an instance where they didn't know what I was applying for and was giving me info a different position. I chalk this up to this is the first time this program has existed so I'm sure process will get better with time.

    The second interview came away from my resume more but it was still the focus. Everyone I talked with was incredibly nice and supportive of the fact that I was still pursuing other companies at the same time. They (the interviewers) said that they though that we were good fits for each other. Got a (very generous) offer 3 business days later. They allowed me 2 weeks to make a decision and even extend that deadline when another company started signalling they were going to make an offer.

    What sealed the deal for me was when one of my recruiters called me just to see what was on my mind and see what i was thinking, and obviously see what she could say to get me to go with ADP. She ultimately told me to go with my gut, even if that wasn't ADP. I can't tell you how much that meant to me. I went home and signed the offer that night, other offer unseen. I felt pursued, like they were fighting to get me which really helped that decision.

    Payroll Specialist Interview

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at ADP.

    Interview

    I applied on their website and it took a couple days to get a phone interview. The phone interview was very awkward, they asked standard interview questions but because the person was typing while I talked he kept telling to wait so he could type. He said it would be about a week to hear something back if they wanted to move forward. I got an email within a couple hours to schedule a in person interview. I thought it went great but I never heard back. I contacted the recruiter a month later and she said the position was filled but they were trying to get approval for another. They got it approved and had me come in to talk to another manager, he told me I would know something within 2 weeks. It has now been 2 months since the phone interview and 2 weeks from my last interview. I still have not heard anything.

    Outside Sales Representative Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Interview

    The interview process was entirely too time consuming and unnecessary. Following a phone interview and in person interview with the VP of sales, if asked to continue in the process, you're required to go on an unpaid, 8 hour long field ride with a sales representative. My perception of the environment was unprofessional, unorganized, and unpassionate about all aspects of the job besides making money. I see no personal or professional growth stemming from this environment due to the nature of the managers and employees.

    HCM Consultant Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Alpharetta, GA

    Neutral Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at ADP (Alpharetta, GA).

    Interview

    I’ve applied for quite a bit positions and got a few phone interviews. After the repetitive phone interviews, a hiring manager never calls. Seem like my applications just remain active, never receive a rejection letter which makes it so weird. At this time I feel like they’re wasting my time with setting up phone screenings. I even called the recruitement hotline to get an update but get limited info. Heard lots of good things about the company but it seem like winning the lotto would come before I get hired

    Solutions Specialist Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Jacksonville, FL
    Declined Offer
    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at ADP (Jacksonville, FL).

    Interview

    A person from outside of the US called for initial screening and made it clear it was not an official interview. She asked questions, to which I answered with specific examples, and the outcome, and it was as if she didn’t understand and then asked me the question again. It was confusing to answer the question again without trying to sound too talkative or like you are trying to explain to a foreigner.

    Waste of time at least at this office. They bring you in, grill you, bring you back. Then you literally work for them as your seat ride which is ridiculous.
