    Sales Representative Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Denver, CO
    No Offer
    Neutral Experience

    Application

    The process took a week. I interviewed at Paycom (Denver, CO).

    Interview

    It wasn't too difficult. You just need to relate your past sales experience. They are looking for aggression and grit. You need to convey that you will stick with it no matter what. You then have an onsite interview and you have to set 3 appointments from 9 until noon. If you can do that you get to the final interview with the vp.

    Paycom Customer Support Specialist Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    No Offer
    Neutral Experience

    Application

    The process took 6 weeks. I interviewed at Paycom.

    Interview

    I applied for Customer Support Specialist. I was called the following day, and had a short phone interview. The recruiter sent me a standard typing & excel test. She also sent me a "survey questionnaire" where you disclose if you have anything on your record(even speeding tickets). The recruiter called me to set up an interview for that Friday. She was talking so fast it was almost impossible to understand her. She informed me I would be interviewing for "Paycom Specialist/Team Support Specialist" neither of which I applied for. I did all my research on those positions. At the interview, they make you take a wonderlic test. I apparently didn't score high enough for them. Evidently, if I don't know if Roger is taller than Sue, I won't make a good customer support specialist. She then told me I can interview for a different position-Garnish Specialist. Obviously, I wasn't prepared to speak about that position. I found it to be extremely unprofessional & difficult to speak about a position I didn't know I would be interviewing for so I wasn't able to prepare. The manager was nice enough and kept saying "good" or "great" after everything I said. It appeared to have gone well. He ended the interview saying I probably wouldn't hear back that day because it was Friday, but I would hear back Monday or Tuesday. I never heard back from the recruiter. I even emailed her and was completely ignored. I find that so unprofessional. I'm sure this is a great company but they do things unprofessionally so be aware. heartheheabawoTuessaid

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Paycom.

    Interview

    Applied for 4 positions. All entry level, with only a high school diploma required. Have 8+ years of related experience including master's degree (3.9 GPA). I received an email the day after for one of the position basically stating that others were more qualified. The other 3 positions have been re-listed so I assume my applications were discarded. I just relocated to OKC having lived away for a couple of years. Best wishes to anyone reading this looking for employment! Don't give up or be discouraged with rejection emails; the right job is out there!!!!! Keep on keeping on....... :)

    I applied online. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at Paycom.

    Interview

    My friend an I both applied for paycom, same experience background same previous employers same age. However, she received a phone call to give her further instructions and was given assessment tests. I received an email telling me there were other more qualified individuals, pretty much they didn't need me. What is the difference between my friend and I? She is white! I am not! I've heard how racist paycom is, but I did not want to believe it. Sad!

    Business Intelligence Analyst Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Oklahoma City, OK

    Positive Experience

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at Paycom (Oklahoma City, OK) in November 2016.

    Interview

    Had a brief phone interview followed by an online excel assessment and a personality assessment. After that I received a call a few days later to set up an on site interview in Oklahoma City. When I first arrived I took the wonderlic test, which is a test of 50 basic knowledge questions with a 12 minute time limit. The actual interview was very brief, maybe 15 minutes. It was pretty basic questions about your resume and one or two behavioral questions.

    Interview

    I received an email from one of their "Talent Acquisition Specialists" inviting me to set up a phone interview. The interview started smoothly and the job seemed to be a great fit for what I was looking for, but unfortunately it required me to spend 3 out of 5 working days traveling overnight which is not conducive to my obligations outside of work. I very politely explained that situation, and the specialist's attitude could not have changed faster. Now, I work at a staffing agency, and I understand our recruiters' disappointment when a candidate they are screening turns out not to be a fit. But they always practice professionalism and gracefully end the conversation, wishing the candidate best of luck in their search at the very least. This girl I was speaking with rudely scoffed once I declined to move further in the process and was extremely quick to hang up on me. Not even a "thank you for your time." If that is the type of professionalism at the company, I am entirely glad that I realized it wouldn't be a fit this early in the process.

    Interview

    Applied online via LinkedIn. Got a call and email couple days later. Setup a phone interview. Initial phone interview is done thru FaceTime or Go to Meeting app/web portal.

    Did the whole Go to Meeting app thru phone. This is just funny and seems very impersonal and poorly constructed. Got the young gal on the other end. You can hear everything they say but video is so choppy hard not to laugh.

    They ask you questions but based on the questions I quickly sensed this gig is not for me. They are looking for recent Grads. Someone fresh, little experience, wet behind the ears type kid.

    Secondly, they bring up background check. Can you pass or not? If you stole a loaf of bread consider yourself doomed. These questions shouldn't even be asked till the very end.

    Software Developer Interview

    Positive Experience

    Application

    I applied through college or university. I interviewed at Paycom.

    Interview

    The interview process was pretty relaxed. I did enjoy my interview with Rob. The company is growing and seems to provide a great training program for newly hired interns in php, c#, and MySQL.

    I would study SOLID programming principles and basic sorting algorithms. The questions did not involve the application or explanation of any Data Structures.

    I do not plan on reapplying, but would recommend any ambitious undergraduates(freshman and sophomores) to apply for the invaluable interview practice.
