    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at Paycom (New York, NY) in March 2020.

    Interview

    Little too no communication throughout process. Third time a recruiter has reached out to me third time I've followed up with an email and message on linked in and received no response at all. After getting a generic rejection email I reply asking for any feedback and 3/3 times hear nothing. Awful experience!

    Outside Sales Representative Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Portland, OR

    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Paycom (Portland, OR).

    Interview

    When I read the reviews here, I didn't really believe it and wanted to see for myself. I had one phone screen. She asked my about my college experience when I graduated 9 years ago. Weird. She asked me to go through my entire resume and then said she thought a different role would be better for me and that she would connect me with another recruiter. I thought this was strange because she had already seen my resume and called me for the original position. I don't really see how walking someone through my resume could turn them off, but it did. This morning I received a linkedin message saying that I didn't get the Sacramento position and that they are going with other candidates. I don't even live in Sacramento! She interviewed me for Portland Oregon....... Yeah this place is beyond bizarre. It sounds like they pay well, but based on the reviews and my experience I wouldn't work here. Other places pay well and have their stuff together more.

    Average Interview

    Application

    The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at Paycom (New York, NY).

    Interview

    I was reached out to by a recruiter on linked in for a sales rep position. Had a short 15 minute call about my experience, was scheduled for an interview for the following week. During my interview they asked about sales experience. The manager at the end said that I would be a better fit for the that role they had open. I had a phone interview the next day for that role and then an in person interview the day after.
    It was your basic "tell me about a time" questions. Overall it was a good experience, even though I didn't not receive an offer.

    Human Resources Compliance Analyst Interview

    Negative Experience

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Paycom (Oklahoma City, OK) in February 2020.

    Interview

    I was contacted via email for a phone interview. We set up a time for the next day. I was never contacted. I reached out to the recruiter who then got back to me two days later saying the position was filled. It was a complete waste of my time, and Paycom is not a company I’d want to work for now.

    My interview got rescheduled multiple times without me knowing. I got automated emails on the date of the scheduled interview that i have been scheduled to interview 1 week after. and after 3 different rescheduling when i got an interview i was told that he'll recommend me to the hiring manager and the manager might also consider me for a taxation position instead of this one. Also that someone would get back to me surely and if no one got back i should email him, i emailed him 2 twice and he never got back to me

    Outside Sales Representative Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Portland, OR
    No Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Paycom (Portland, OR) in February 2020.

    Interview

    I interviewed with Paycom for several months, there were outside circumstances with the manager at my desired location that stretched out the total interview time, so in the meantime they had me interview with other managers in different locations. Finally, I interviewed with the regional sales manager of the pacific northwest and that was a very hard interview but after I finished asking him high-level questions we chatted for 10-15 minutes and he was very nice. The hardest part is the PC (phone canvasing interview) in person, I was there for 5 hours, gave a presentation to the sales staff and had to make sales calls with hardly any prior knowledge of the product(besides what I had been researching), how to sell the product or any briefing. I was just given a list and a phone. I am about to graduate college so I do not have much cold calling experience so it was a great learning experience. I made 186 cold calls and by the end of the day, I completed my quota of meetings set. However, I was not offered the position and it was given to someone out of college with many years of sales experience... so I don't really know why I was competing with a grad with years of experience when I was under the impression that this position was primarily for new college grads.
