    Junior Executive Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Chicago, IL
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Paycom (Chicago, IL) in February 2017.

    Interview

    Wonderful experience. There were three rounds of interviews, and the corporate recruiter was a great help! The first round was with a recruiter. This interview was to get a feel on if I was a good cultural fit for Paycom. The second interview was with the regional manager, and we talked a lot about work ethic and character traits related to winning. The third interview was with a sales manager. This was to make sure I'd be a good fit for her office.

    Implementation Specialist Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Richmond, VA

    Neutral Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at Paycom (Richmond, VA).

    Interview

    My recruiter was Jaden, she was very nice and reached out to me on LinkedIn. Was very helpful and readily available throughout majority of process. Interview was fairly easy was a go-to-meeting with one of the directors. 2nd interview was with a higher up director via go-to meeting. Nothing crazy hard.

    Only feedback I can give would be to follow up with candidates when they get rejected. Makes your company more genuine and professional even if you get rejected. Instead they send out a very impersonal email that is clearly a copy and pasted cop-out so they don't have to talk to you. Would've been a very positive interview if I would've just gotten the personal feedback, nice closure most people can handle.

    Paycom Specialist Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Oklahoma City, OK

    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. I interviewed at Paycom (Oklahoma City, OK) in July 2017.

    Interview

    Long process! At first it was a little frustrating because there was an issue with the online application. It changed my cell phone number to some random number of a different area code and they couldn't reach me. Thankfully, I knew someone at the company who told the recruiter my actually cell phone. I had a phone conversation and the recruiter told me to do some edits on my application because some information was missing. It was the online application again doing random things. Then it wouldn't let me re-submit the application because the "employee referral" question would keep deleting my answer when I would hit next. Thankfully, Kimberly Odell was an amazing person to communicate with and told me not to worry about it and she would let IT know. After all that, it become much easier. I did 4 online assessments: 10 key, Excel worksheet, typing, and personality. The next day she asked if I would come in for an interview that week. When I arrived it seemed there were lots of interviews happening that day, but everything was very organized which I appreciated. I took a math/reading assessment and then met with one of the Supervisors. Great interview. Went home and got a call asking if I would come in again that afternoon for a second interview. Went even better because in this one I got to learn even more about the company. Then a credit check, drug test, and reference check. Today I got the phone call officially giving me the job and I start on Monday. I have been a teacher the last 6 years and I am excited about this new journey in life. :)

    COBRA Specialist Interview

    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Paycom (Oklahoma City, OK) in June 2017.

    Interview

    I originally applied for Paycom Specialist and I got a call for an interview about two days after applying. Went in for my interview and was told that I wasn't right for the position. But they felt that I was right for paycom. So I went in to interview for about three other positions until we found the right one for me. It was a really long, frustrating process but it all worked out in the end. The stress and countless interviews were worth it for a company like this.

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Paycom in October 2016.

    Interview

    Walked in. Not greeted by the receptionists, but apparently that's bc they aren't really receptionists, I was told later. Asked if I could find out where the restroom was to wash my hands. And was escorted not just to the restroom but IN there as well. Came back out to the front of the lobby where there are several what reminded me of cages at the zoo, where several of us were having interviews with employees. Was not allowed to go back behind the office doors bc apparently th at's just for employees. Of which I was not.

    Application

    I applied through a staffing agency. I interviewed at Paycom.

    Interview

    First, a 15 minute conversation with the recruiter. Second, 12 minute wonderlic test along with a one hour WebEx interview at their office. The final step is meeting with the director. Overall, the whole process was very professional and the recruiter for Paycom is a very sweet lady. The only thing I did not like is the manager asked me an illegal question during the interview by asking what year I graduated high school. However, I personally think she did not know she couldn't ask that considering that she was only a couple months into that position. Plus, I understand why she asked it with regards to my college background.

    If you're thinking about working for Paycom, they are a good company that will invest into your personal and professional future. However, make sure you have good questions prepared beforehand!
