    Major Account Representative Interview

    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Ceridian (Atlanta, GA) in October 2015.

    Interview

    Seamless from beginning to end. I was an employee referral and was contacted by the hiring manager the following day. Went in to speak to the hiring manager face to face, spoke to a sales rep on the team face to face, spoke to the recruiter over the phone and had a final interview with the VP of sales over the phone. Lasted a total of about two weeks from start to finish. Overall everyone seemed to communicate with each other and asked different questions throughout the process.

    Interview Questions

    • Number based questions for sales roles: ie. where did you finish, quota attainment, awards achieved, average number of deals.

      1. knowing the role and company, what do you see being a challenge for you?

    Major Account Representative Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Chicago, IL
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at Ceridian (Chicago, IL) in September 2015.

    Interview

    This is your typical multi-step interview process in which you will have phone screenings, one-on-one interviews with manager and VP, manager peer interviews and a presentation requirement in order to get hired. As expected it's important to be prompt dressed professionally and prepared with questions, proof points of your past success, and some small talk to engage your interviewer.

    Interview Questions

    • I was asked to explain why I would be a good fit for the position. What in my background and past work experience should lead my interviewer to believe that I would succeed in the role?   1 Answer

    Negotiation

    Negotiation is possible, however a past verifiable record of earnings is required in order to improve the salary offer.

    Implementation Consultant Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Atlanta, GA
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3+ weeks. I interviewed at Ceridian (Atlanta, GA) in July 2015.

    Interview

    Online application followed by phone screen, manager interview (skype), and peer (phone) interview. Due to reorg, also spoke briefly with VP and had (in person) interview with Director, whom will report to. The interviews via phone and skype were relaxed and a good experience. The one in person was more confusing as to how it went and was more intense than the others.

    Interview Questions

    • Soft skills are critical to success in the role, explain how you handle items.   1 Answer
    • Being proactive is another success factor in the role, describe how you show this trait.   1 Answer

    Negotiation

    If you get an offer, get everything in writing before accepting the offer. I have found they promise more than they actually will give (with regards to time off) as well as pay below market rate for experience in field/industry. (For example with 7 years industry experience and 9 years field experience, plus degrees/certifications in my city, according to Kinexa my offer was $15-20K below the market rate (aka average for the range.)) When asking for various minor things - such as cell phone reimbursement or professional annual dues they also won't include that in the offer. They don't negotiate - you either take the offer as is or walk. There is a noncompete included in the pre-employment paperwork.

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Ceridian (Minneapolis, MN).

    Interview

    Easygoing phone call screening and then an in-person with a manager and a co-worker. Overall, pretty conversational and friendly. I suppose it depends on who you interview with and the department. Seems like a good company to work for as the people were friendly and cordial.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at Ceridian (Houston, TX) in April 2015.

    Interview

    Informational and not very well structured. The hiring manager did most of the talking and left no room at the end for me to answer questions. I had to go to the bathroom so bad, but did not want to interupt the hiring manager.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Ceridian.

    Interview

    Applied online and had an HR interview within 2 weeks. Followed by a manager interview 2 weeks after. About an hour each. Typical questions were asked by both. HR interview was a bit awkward as the lady was flipping through notes of her scripted questions and you can hear her typing what sounded like your answers verbatim.

    Negotiation

    Negotiations were limited, but definitely mention what you would accept
