    Applied online and then had a phone interview with a nice lady who asked basic questions. I was then given a personal interview with the VP of the company. After this I was not contacted at all and did not know if i was going to go any further in the interview process.

    Interview

    Pretty straight forward interview that included a 15 minute sales pitch to the hiring manager. Asked basic questions as well as in-depth questions about experience. They're looking for both a culture fit and a specific skill set as well as potential.

    Interview

    Contacted by recruiter after an employee referral. Set up a phone interview which was more like a conversation than an interview. Next was an on-site interview with sales manager. Pretty easy interview as well. Stopped the process when I was offered a different job.

    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at ADP (Salt Lake City, UT) in June 2008.

    Interview

    Was sent to an ADP recruiter by a third party recruiter
    Had phone interview with ADP recruiter
    Was sent to interview with local sales manager
    Had ride along with another sales rep
    Had another interview with regional sales manager
    Had a web conference interview with a Vice President of the company

    Had a really hard time getting the "Final word" because of illnesses, managers travelling, etc. Then, they ended up not even hiring anyone for the position because they didn't have it in their budget. It was a really long process only to be let down, but I understand that sort of thing happens in large corporations. The recruiter was really good to keep me in the loop, and I could tell this was definitely a "professional" organization.

    Interview Questions

    • Typical sales questions.....how do you get to the decision maker? What are your strengths? weaknesses?   Answer Question

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at ADP (Buena Park, CA) in August 2010.

    Interview

    The interview process was nothing out of the ordinary. Phone interview, face to face, ridealong, and then a rols play. I was not offered the position because they didnt think sales was the number 1 career path in my eyes. They are nothing but sales driven! Sell, sell, sell.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I interviewed at ADP in August 2013.

    Interview

    Received phone and then in person interview. Phone interview was very general asking questions about qualifications and reason for looking for a new job. In person interview was all over the place in questions. Asked questions about when I graduated High School and College, He even tried to guess my age, asked when I got my married and what my spouse did for a living. Completely unprofessional interview and those questions asked were 100% illegal and irrelevant to the job.

Chuck Lacy is an inspirational leader and makes the success of his team as a priority before himself. A true leader. On my first day I was welcomed and introduced to everyone in the office. What I enjoy most about ADP is you become family right away and EVERYONE is there to answer questions and help you succeed. As an ADM you also take part in a training class of other ADM's who started at the same time as you across the nation! I have made a lot of relationships with those in Seattle and those in my ADM class. I also have met a lot of great clients as I strive hard to meet my goals and find those businesses that can benefit from ADP!” – Full Review
