    Easy Interview

    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!

    Difficult Interview

    Application

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

    Interview

    The interview process was rather in-depth, but for good reason! I applied directly on the Paycom website after hearing about it from a current employee. It started with a phone interview which lasted about 20 minutes, with a recruiter asking about my past experience and why I decided to apply to Paycom. She then wanted to schedule me for an in-person interview with a supervisor that I may work with in the department I was applying for. I was scheduled the interview once I completed a personality test and data entry tests. I then went to the Paycom HQ where I met with the supervisor who went into more detail about my experience and why I would be a good fit. I then spoke with another supervisor who asked more about who I was and why Paycom was a good match for me personally. Because of the services Paycom provides, they do conduct background checks and a drug test. Overall, I was very pleased with the interview process. The recruiters and interviewers I had talked to seemed very passionate about the company and its values and we're very helpful throughout the entire process.

    Application

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

    Interview

    Long process. Recruiter called me on phone to talk to me about half an hour. Sent me 4 computer tests (10 key, excel, typing and personality) to complete. Called me back and asked me to come in for an interview. I came in and first had to take a math/reading assessment. Had interview with Supervisor and it was a lot about how I would relate with the people on my team and connect with our clients. Later that afternoon I was asked to come back for a second interview. The second interview had more to do with how would I accomplish all my daily tasks and meet goals. Next day got a call saying I needed to send references, do a credit, background and drug test. Long process, but I can totally see why.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

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

    Interview

    I applied via Glassdoor and Paycom's website. I did not hear anything back, so I reached out to the recruiter via the company, and he replied quickly with an interview date. I also knew someone who worked in the department I was applying, and they reached out to the Creative Director about interviewing me. My first interview was in the front of the headquarters building with the Creative Director and the Manager of Creative Services. I showed them my portfolio via my iPad and they asked me a series of questions. They invited me back for a second interview the next day. I had my second interview inside the department meeting room with 6 other managers who all asked a question. I showed them my portfolio and then got a brief tour of the building. They offered me the job a couple days later, and I had to pass a background check, have 5 references fill out a survey about me, and took a drug test. That process took about a week and then I started that next Monday!

    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.

    The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at Paycom.

    Interview

    Was contacted by a 3rd party recruiter. I then did a phone screen and an assessment. I was then scheduled for a Skype like interview. Was told I would hear back in a week. Heard back 3 hours later that they wanted me to come into the office the next day. That is a 3 hour commute and I have a full time job. Recruiter became very high pressure that I make it in to continue the next steps. I gave her dates and times but she has not responded

    I applied online. I interviewed at Paycom (San Antonio, TX) in June 2017.

    Interview

    Phone interview first and then a video interview. The interview was very easy and the questions they asked didn't make you think. The phone screen was great, but the video chat made me feel like the interviewer was uninterested (why would you interview me in the first place).
