    Application

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

    Interview

    Phone interview with a possible opportunity for a 1-on-1 with the VP of Sales.
    The lady was very nice and easy to talk with. Phone interview went over where you are in your life and why you want to be a sales rep and why ADP. Also goes over job description and make sure everything is good with you before meeting with the VP rep.

    Excited to see where it goes. The app made me pick if I got an offer or not, but I haven't made it far enough.

    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at ADP (Dallas, TX) in August 2015.

    Interview

    A phone interview, a face-to-face interview, and then a day of shadowing/role-play... Over the process, I sent great followup emails/calls and never heard a response.. After the last step, I tried to follow up with the employer, no response, and no feedback given as to why I wasn't selected. I was disappointed in the lack of communication and feedback that not getting an offer was fine by me...

    Outside Sales Representative Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Warwick, RI
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at ADP (Warwick, RI) in March 2015.

    Interview

    It seems like a great company. However, they are very disorganized for being global, and misleading. After three rounds of interviews (two of which were very strange). They advertise their 6 week sales program. I was never given definitive times of a follow up, there is a major gap in HR, and in turn they ended up not offering me the position due to "lack of sales experience". I have been in sales my entire life and was a Marketing Director. As a company, why waste my time and yours.

    In a positive light, it seems like a great environment and place for growth. However, being a sales representative; if internal HR never accommodates the customer or prominently responds to issues. You will never meet forecasted goals. It will also give you a bad reputation as a sales person.

    Their high technology systems is great, and everyone was more than friendly. Just be prepared for an interesting interview experience.

    Application

    Interview

    Interview Process was very straight forward. I had an initial phone discussion with recruiter, then came into the office for an interview with hiring manager, then was provided a job offer.

    They asked to provide specific scenarios in which case you would be a good fit for the role and managing yourself while out of the office.

    I just had a phone interview with ADP and their recruiting director could not have been more informative.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at ADP (Buena Park, CA) in February 2015.

    Interview

    I found the job posting on indeed. After I applied on the company website, I received an email the next day from a recruiter who set up a phone interview with me. After the phone interview, the recruiter told me I may be a good match for the position and set up a face-to-face interview with the VP of sales for the following week. I just had my face-to-face interview today (Thursday), and the VP told me I will hear back on Tuesday.

    The recruiter called me a day before my interview and gave me some helpful tips. She also called me after my interview and asked me how it went.
