    Interview

    The interview process was long, they will lead you on like crazy, then give absolutely no feedback if you are not hired. There is no variety in the interview process.

    Outside Sales Representative Interview

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at ADP (Ontario, CA) in May 2020.

    Interview

    1. Phone Screening 2. VP Sales Interview (Another Screening) 3. Virtual Ride Along (an hour with a current sales rep) & Same day Panel Interview followed by a Role Play Scenario. Overall it was a good interview however they definitely know what they are looking for. If you do not have a strong sales background you need to have an employee referral. They say the want people with carious backgrounds but they really want people with previous sales experience. I had a referral and even then I was not offered a position. Everything was done either on FaceTime or their version of Zoom due to COVID-19.

    During my final panel interview/ role play I was prepared for a 45 minute time frame which was in the email however the manager leading the interview was rushing along and not very professional. Besides that it was a great opportunity.

    Account Executive Interview

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    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?

    Outside Sales Representative Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate

    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at ADP in April 2020.

    Interview

    Contacted by a recruiter and had a phone screen with him. Then had an interview with the VP of sales. Then I had to cut out a two-hour block to have three thirty-minute interviews with three separate managers. The final half-hour was a conversation with someone with the job title I was applying for. The last interview was a role play with the same three hiring managers.

    Nice and all but they led me on a lot. They made me wait a while to hear back too. Said this job has a lot of turnover which was concerning to me.

    Major Accounts District Manager Interview

    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at ADP (Kansas City, MO) in April 2020.

    Interview

    1st conversation with a recruiter. 2nd interview over the phone with the hiring sales manager. 3rd interview with the VP of Sales. 4th interview I was asked to prepare a 15 minute PowerPoint presentation for a sales call role play in addition to a 10 minute slideshow presentation on why I was a good fit for the role. A week and a half later I received an email letting me know they decided to go in another direction. Although the interviews themselves were not difficult, the amount of time put into building a PowerPoint presentation just to receive a rejection via email may be a bit too much to ask for some.
