The third step was an in person interview with another team lead. They tell you afterwards they will contact you with 24-48 hrs and inform you if they are going to offer you the position .

Technical Account Manager

Being a woman in tech, I only recently started advocating for myself at work about advancement opportunities. Because of this I wanted to ask this question to my male counterparts. When you have 1:1's with your direct reports and talk about career growth / aspirations what is your managers’ response typically? I’d like to gauge how my experience (negative) differs from others. For instance are you met with blockades, enthusiasm, dread, etc?

I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at Paycom

Interview

A recruiter reached out to me and asked if I was interested in the opportunity. We set up a time to talk, she asked for my phone number and said she would call me. I was not actively applying to jobs at the time because I was so busy with my stressful, full-time job. However, I spent part of my weekend researching the company, and preparing for the interview. I blocked off my schedule and interrupted my workday, sitting around waiting for her to call. She never called me, and I messaged her on LinkedIn asking if she tried to call, she never responded and completely ghosted me, it's been over a month. Extremely rude, if you decide you don't want to do the interview anymore, at least let the person know so they don't waste their time and become available. When I vented to my friends about the experience, one of them said they interviewed here and were told they would have no life whatsoever and asked what about that was appealing to them. Paycom seems like a great company, but maybe the sales and recruiting departments have issues.

I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Paycom (Oklahoma City, OK) in May 2022

Interview

This recruiter did an amazing job. It was easy to go through the process and was timely as well! They called to do a short interview and just to get to know who you are. Over the phone they will ask what your expected compensation will be. So be prepared! Then after that I had an interview with two people, one of the two would be my direct manager if hired. They told me I would be notified either direction they went. Thankfully they wanted to bring me back in. That was a short interview / meet and greet with a hire

Interview Questions
  • They were very situational, so having exact times that you went through a challenging time, or had to disappoint someone, or failed but overcame.

I interviewed at Paycom

Interview

The gate guard and metal detector seem intimidating at first. But both were friendly. Front reception was upbeat, friendly, and personable. I was directed to a room. Then interviewed by 2 propels. They traded off questions. My recruiter encouraged the star method and that is important. Go in with examples of how your previous work translates to the position. A lot of emphasis on conflict resolution.

Interview Questions
  • Several questions revolved around conflict resolution which made sense with clients but they also asked about team member conflict.
