I applied online. I interviewed at Paychex.

Interview

Two telephone interviews, after receiving a notice that I was not selected, then three on site interviews. There seemed to be a disconnect between recruiting and the hiring manager. Odd to receive the thanks-no-thank notice, then a get contacted to begin the interview process.
