Sales Representative Interview

Anonymous Interview Candidate
No Offer
Negative Experience

Application

I applied online. I interviewed at ADP in September 2019.

Interview

I applied for an Enterprise level position but was interviewed for HRO for small businesses. I wasn’t aware of this going into the interview - I applied for one job but was interviewed for something completely different. My sales background is mostly large complex deals with C-suite level decision makers spending power. The interviewer was 10/15 minutes late to the screening call and was completely rude from the minute the call began. Every question asked was about cold calling - it became obvious that the position was more entry level and not a match to my skill set. When I was explaining my background it was obvious the recruiter has no experience at the enterprise level because she couldn’t grasp why I’m not making 50/100 cold calls a day. When I explained my sales awards she dismissed them as unimportant. Overall the experience was terrible - it seemed I was defending my background and experience. I would never interview with ADP again based on this experience.

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at ADP (Melville, NY) in September 2019.

    Interview

    The recruiter was very efficient and followed up in a timely manner,,and provided feedback. The interview was ok. My only issue was that although the hiring manager said that it is a" fair process" uou will not know what uour territory would be until after you are hired. That was a dealbreaker for me.

    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at ADP (Tampa, FL) in June 2019.

    Interview

    The interview process was long and unprofessional. First step was a phone call, second was face to face with the VP of sales, third was a 'ride day', fourth was a role-play followed by a final interview. This process took a whole month to get through, only to get an email telling me that they had moved on with other candidates. Was told that I could expect an offer and would hear from them on a certain date. They failed to let me know by that date. It was not once where I heard that I would hear from them on a certain day, but twice. In sales integrity is everything and they demonstrated that is not one of their priorities.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at ADP (Richmond, VA) in January 2019.

    Interview

    The whole process took about three weeks. Phone interview with recruiter, interview with VP of sales, met with two account executives for an interview, ride along to see if it was a fit, final interview with VP of sales and two sale executives and a role play. The role play is tough you get 30 minutes to read over a script and do a mock sales pitch to the Sales Executive/VP of Sales.

    Average Interview

    Application

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

    Interview

    Was contacted by recruiter, told about the position, asked a series of questions then moved on to the next round. It was pretty simple but the interview with the next person was super awkward and you could tell they were doing other things while speaking to me and they were not interested. I must have said something that wasn’t in their robot script because the call was cut short by him😂 this is why Paylocity will take over as the leader in the HCM industry in the next 5 years and you will be left with the kens and the barbies that you hire saying OMG like we’re ADP that’s why you should buy from me!

    Interview Questions

    • They use this nonsense 1980s situational behavior interview process. “Tell me about a time where you....blah blah blah”   Answer Question
    • Overall terrible experience ADP hires robots who follow their robot process. What is wrong with just having a conversation with people to find out what kind of person they are instead of reading off of a script? Find a way to innovate and also find a way to be real people....not robots!   Answer Question

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at ADP (Nashville, TN) in July 2018.

    Interview

    I was called by a recruiter, who was not near as helpful as some of the other recruiters I previously worked with. The interview seemed to have went well, however, even after sending a follow up email I never was contacted ever again not even to say they went with someone else. I think this is a terrible business practice.
