    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at Paycom (Oklahoma City, OK) in May 2017.

    Interview

    A recruiter contacted me about about an open position. We did a 10 minute phone interview. Then I received an email to take a typing test, 10 key and excel text. Then after passing those tests I scheduled an interview, then received a call to schedule the second interview.

    Transition Specialist Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate

    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. I interviewed at Paycom in May 2017.

    Interview

    Received a Linkedin message from Recruiter asking if I was interested in the position. I reply and state that I'm interested. We setup a time for an interview. All of a sudden, 2 hours before my interview, she start sending all these text messages (harrassment!) telling me to fill out the actual job application and to complete an assessment before the phone interview --very frustrating --she could have easily provided this info in email 24 hours prior to the phone interview. When I told her I didn't have time to complete the assessment, she became very negative in tone. She pretended she couldn't hear me while I was answering her questions and blamed the connection and hung up on me. Recruiter was very rude and ill-mannered. I have no interest in pursuing an opportunity with Paycom if it is full of employees with temperaments as bad as that snotty recruiter.

    Implementation Specialist Interview

    Neutral Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at Paycom (Tampa, FL) in May 2017.

    Interview

    A recruiter reached out to me on LinkedIn. She reached out to me and we had a phone interview in which she asked me questions about my background and experience. After a personality test and a timed Math/Reasoning IQ test, I met with both of the hiring managers on webcam. They have a very particular mold they want you to fill, which is why they asked critical thinking questions. The CEO asked me why I didn't have more connections on LinkedIn, so make sure you polish your profile. Connections on LinkedIn don't matter as much to me. The real connections are in your phonebook, so I was really surprised to be asked that. I'm kind of glad I didn't get the job. It seems like a very stressful and controlled environment - it's like they want a robot working for them, someone who just takes orders, not someone who can bring fresh ideas or a new way of thinking. I have also heard they are not very lenient on sick days/holidays/vacation time. Anyway, good luck to those who snagged an interview, personally this interview helped me land my next job, so I feel very neutral about my experience.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Paycom in May 2017.

    Interview

    The interview contained a phone screening, home assessment, in person assessment, and an interview. It was not bad. It's hard to write thirty words. Still not enough. This is getting ridiculous.

    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

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

    Interview

    The interview process was thorough and very professional. As my first ever "corporate" interview, it has easily set the bar for any interview that I have in the future (if there is ever another one). I know that Paycom takes this process very seriously, and you can tell that they only hire top-notch people that will better the company!

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at Paycom (Oklahoma City, OK) in April 2017.

    Interview

    Nice and professional interview process. Unfortunately I got radio silence after the second interview. The professional thing to do would be to send at least a form letter to decline the offer to you. They request all kinds of feedback throughout the interview process then give you none.
