    Sales Consultant Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Olathe, KS

    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at Paychex (Olathe, KS).

    Interview

    The interview process can take anywhere from 1-3 months. They are testing the applicant's ability to close the deal. If you are applying, make sure to be ethically and kindly aggressive. Don't let them tell you no and get ready for objection handling. You'll work with a recruiter, then you'll interview with the District Manager and finally you'll meet with the Regional Manager (if available). Make sure you ask lots of questions as well, that's a big deal in their process.

    I had a friend that was an Internal Employee, and she submitted my resume to the corporate recruiter. After the initial phone interview with a corporate recruiter, she submmited by resume to the District I applied to. After my phone intervew with the District Sales Manager, I had an in-person interview with two District Sales Managers. The last step was a phone interview with the Zone Manager (manages multiple Districts). Once all the interviews were completed, the District Sales Manager extended the offer over the phone right away.
