    Marketing Specialist Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Oklahoma City, OK
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Paycom (Oklahoma City, OK).

    Interview

    They go to a lot of work to screen employees, but it's not too cumbersome. You have a call with a recruiter, then you fill out the job application if you haven't already. If you clear that then you have an in-person interview. Sometimes you'll have a team interview and an interview with the department leader.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Paycom (Oklahoma City, OK) in August 2017.

    Interview

    I had a phone interview that lasted 30 minutes and we talked about coming in for a second interview. The next day, I received a call and asked to come in for a third interview. Maybe one or two days later, I received a follow up call from my recruiter and asked how everything went and they extended an offer. My recruiter was awesome!

    Transition Specialist Representative Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Nashville, TN
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took a week. I interviewed at Paycom (Nashville, TN) in November 2017.

    Interview

    The interview process was pretty quick. I got a message on LinkedIn about the position. Once I responded, I had a phone screen, in office interview, and a GoToMeeting web interview all within a week. After my last interview, I was offered the position within a couple of hours. The offer was contingent on a reference check, drug screen, background, and credit check. If offered the position be prepared with at least 5 professional references who will actually be contacted and expected to respond quickly. Everyone I interacted with was very positive and welcoming. I'm looking forward to starting my new position in December!

    Outside Sales Representative Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at Paycom.

    Interview

    The interview process at Paycom is very very flawed, and I will get to why here. I had to change up my post some to keep it as anonymous as possible for Glassdoor. Here was my process.
    -Met them at career fair and had a fantastic conversation.
    -Emailed them afterwords about how interested I was (as I was asked to do).
    -They respond 1 MONTH later and we get the ball rolling on getting an interview set up.
    -I am set up for an interview with an interviewer over a webcam.
    -Interviewer NEVER SHOWS UP to the webcam interview and apparently had no idea it was happening.
    -After a couple weeks, I am able to have an interview with the interviewer.
    -Interview goes well, but THE POSITION THAT I WAS APPLYING FOR WASN'T EVEN AVAILABLE. Big waste of time and energy.
    -I talk to them about another location I could interview with and I am set up with another interviewer to have an interview.
    -I interview with the interviewer, and it goes decently but not well enough to proceed in the interview process.
    -I was told I was denied because THERE AREN'T ANY OPENINGS and because I don't have enough experience. I should go get a couple years of sales under my belt and apply again.
    All I ask is that if Paycom is going to go to career fairs at universities, please have students apply for positions that are actually available, and not deny them for not having a couple years of sales experience under their belt. Most college students are willing to relocate so have them apply for positions that are available or soon to be available. I and a lot of other students have been put through the ringer interviewing with Paycom because of how promising an outside sales role is there, only to be denied for reasons beyond my control. I hope this post helps. I spent a lot of time interviewing with Paycom.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Paycom.

    Interview

    Applied on LinkedIn and heard back very quickly from a recruiter. She then set up a phone screen with me, which was very conversational and felt very natural. She told me she wanted me to meet the manager at the office I would work at, and set that up for a few days later. The process would go phone screen, manager, and then two other interviews with directors.

    The day of the interview with the manager, the recruiter called me and just wanted to see if I had any last minute questions and wished me luck, which was super kind. I then met with the manager, and took the online logic test. The manager asked me some questions but honestly didn't seem present or interested at all. This job was very similar to the job I currently had, so I thought I was a great fit but he just kept looking for reasons why I wouldn't fit, which was odd.

    I heard back 2 days after the interview with the manager that they were not moving forward with me. Seemed weird that I wouldn't move on with the other interviews to see if the directors thought I would be a good fit, but I understand that if the manager didn't like me, then that would just be a waste of time.

    It was a very quick process that was enjoyable thanks to the recruiter who worked with me throughout the process.

    Customer Service Specialist Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Oklahoma City, OK
    Accepted Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3+ weeks. I interviewed at Paycom (Oklahoma City, OK) in October 2017.

    Interview

    I interviewed for multiple jobs. My interview with Paycom was a breath of fresh air. They focused on my strengths and did not ask me about my weaknesses. I went through a phone interview with a recruiter and two face to face interviews. I was given a contingent offer for employment. I was given a background check, a drug test, a reference check, and a credit check. Unfortunately, I recently went through a divorce and my credit is shot. Although I passed all aspects other than the credit report, Paycom rescinded their offer. It is disheartening that a struggling person is viewed as too big of a risk to hire. Paycom sent me my rejection letter via Fed Ex which felt spineless and cold.

    Account Manager Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3+ weeks. I interviewed at Paycom (New York, NY) in October 2017.

    Interview

    The interview process is LONG! If you’re not in OKC then you will have to do all of the interviews via FaceTime. First you interview with the recruiter, next a regional manager, then a regional director and finally the VP. I got up to the regional director and told me If all goes well then I would speak with the VP. The regional director interview was 40 mins and it’s all general questions on your background going as far back as college. Overall, I know the interview went great. I have 6 years of sales experience on top of my degree. 2 voicemails later and an email and I haven’t heard back since. For a company who glorifies itself on being a great Human Resources tool, it would be great to at least get a rejection letter.
