    Software Developer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    No Offer
    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.

    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.

    Interview

    I never even received a phone call. I've applied for over 20 positions at paycom since i graduated from college in 2015. I graduated with a 3.4 GPA and even tried applying for High school diploma jobs in the career section but always got back an email from paycom saying i'm not qualified. The one time i was lucky and got a call from one of my recruiters, she said she was gonna call me back but i never heard back from her.I don't wanna say it's bias. i know people I'm more qualified than that are working there. I just don't know how else one can be qualified to work at paycom

    Sales Representative Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

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

    Interview

    I received an email to set up an interview over the phone. The interview itself was fine but later that day I received another email saying that the interviewer was sorry she had missed me on the phone and we should reschedule for the following week. I'm sure that she speaks with a lot of people on a daily basis but the note taking/organization seemed to be lacking since she didn't have notes that we had spoken. I have not heard back from the company since.
