    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.

    Contract Administrator Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Hoffman Estates, IL
    Accepted Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at ADP (Hoffman Estates, IL) in May 2010.

    Interview

    Initial communication was a phone call, and short phone interview, followed up by two interviews with the Director of the department and the hiring manager. Nothing specifically difficult, or odd, pretty much a straight up interview.

    Corporate Sales Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in San Francisco, CA

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at ADP (San Francisco, CA) in June 2009.

    Interview

    Employee referral was strong but the hiring manager had another candidate preselected. He was just going through the motions.

    Corporate Strategy Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Roseland, NJ
    No Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at ADP (Roseland, NJ) in February 2015.

    Interview

    First interview was pretty good but the interviewer provided misleading information during the interview. I expected that the case interview would be more like a discussion instead of a question and answer. I did not get an opportunity to showcase the full breadth of my business skills.

    Second interviewer was helpful during the process. It felt more conversational and relaxed.

    Looking bad, they probably employed the good cop-bad cop model typical of consulting firms.

    Outbound Sales Representative Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Del Mar, CA
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 5+ weeks. I interviewed at ADP (Del Mar, CA) in October 2017.

    Interview

    Applied, took a month to be contacted, had a phone interview which was relatively easy and fluid. The lady said I would be moving on to the next round and that the VP of Sales would call me in two days; they didn’t. I tried to follow up a week later by calling and leaving a message, she didn’t return my call. I emailed her twice, still no response. Extremely unprofessional to say that you’re excited to meet me and that you are sending me to the next round of interviews and then completely ghost me. What a joke.

    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at ADP (Columbus, OH) in July 2017.

    Interview

    Phone screen followed by in-person interview. Interviewer made me wait 20 minutes past the scheduled start time. Began the interview saying there were no open territories. Interrupted the interview to get coffee. Very unprofessional atmosphere

    OUTSIDE SALES Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Culver City, CA
    No Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 5 days. I interviewed at ADP (Culver City, CA) in May 2017.

    Interview

    I interview at the Culver City location. After reading all the pessimistic experiences and reviews on this site, I expected the worst of my interviewer. After the interview, I can say it has been the most comfortable and authentic interview I have been in. Not only did the interviewer who was the vice president of sales got to know about my professional experience, I also got to know his personal and professional background which is rare in an interview due to their position. I encourage interviewees to avoid negativity and focus on their personal experience rather than reading about other peoples' experiences. I made it through the next process and I will be shadowing a sales rep as part of the final interview.

    OUTSIDE SALES Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Rockville, MD
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at ADP (Rockville, MD) in December 2016.

    Interview

    I applied online and I was contacted by a recruiter by phone who immediately administered a mini interview with basic personality questions. The recruiter liked me so helped me to schedule a FaceTime interview with a VP who was hard to get in touch with. Eventually I FaceTimed with the VP, it was a basic interview (name a time of success, failure, adversity, when you were a good friend, etc.) The VP seemed uninterested and rushed, I definitely didn't think I was going to hear back, but two weeks later HR requested I come in for the final in-person two day ride along & roll play. The ride along was awesome because I just shadowed all day, but the roll play day was very intimidating; I sat before 5 VPs and they all rattled off questions and follow up questions on every answer. Role play was good, I prepped and performed, and then the VP gave me a few tips to improve and wanted me to do it again with his advice.

    OUTSIDE SALES Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Parsippany, NJ
    Accepted Offer
    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at ADP (Parsippany, NJ) in January 2016.

    Interview

    Had a standard phone interview that went extremely well. Came in for an interview with two Sales Managers, I confidently answered their questions. They had me come in again to shadow with one of their current "top sales people", which was fine except it was basically half the day of me cold-calling into gas stations, etc. selling them payroll to see if I could "do the job". I got the offer and started at the company, but left as soon as I accepted a higher offer.
