HRS Sales Representative Interview

Anonymous Interview Candidate in Pittsburgh, PA
Declined Offer
Neutral Experience
Easy Interview

Application

I applied through a recruiter. The process took 5+ weeks. I interviewed at Paychex (Pittsburgh, PA) in May 2014.

Interview

Phone screen then in person interview. After the interview you have a ride day with a sales rep. They will tell you in the interview that they always interview and have a "bench". So after the ride day they can keep stringing you along until some position becomes available. I would call and ask when the hire date was and they just said to try back next week. I finally called and said I need to make a decision on careers and they offered me a different position and said comp was the same...it wasn't.

Interview Questions

  • Why Paychex? Tell me about a time you had a conflict in work and how you resolved it? TMAAT that you sold with a co-worker?   Answer Question

Reasons for Declining

The process took too long. I was considered one of the bench people and had to wait for someone to quit or get fired.

    Multiple interviews, standard questions. Phone screener, manager, area manager. Min 3 interviews. They now do a video interview that is very awkward it's done via Webcam. Don't be surprised if the process takes 2-4 weeks.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Paychex (San Francisco, CA) in June 2010.

    Interview

    Intense interview process. This is a company that sells HR outsourcing and benefits administration services. They follow rigorous and best of class interview processes. They will go all they way back to decisions you made in high school to see your decision-making paradigm. They will also have you set up a call with every previous manager you have had (again going back to pre-college). It might be a test of sorts to make sure that you don't have any skeletons in your closet, but you never know what a former supervisor is going to say about you.

    You'll have a recruiter interview if you were head hunted. They'll then do a coaching call a few days later. Then a Paychex phone interview. Then manager interview. Then a ride along with a current Rep. Then maybe fly you out for a senior manager interview. Then drug test and BG check. Took about 7 weeks total.
