    Client Relations Representative Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Grand Rapids, MI
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Paycom (Grand Rapids, MI) in August 2017.

    Interview

    The interview process for me took about 2 weeks. Phone screening with Recruiter, Sales Manager interview, Head of Department Interview, Vice President of the Department Interview, and finally a field ride day. Overall the interview process is very in depth, actually the most in depth I have ever had. I see why though, Paycom is not like other companies that seem to saturate the market with sales reps or account managers which I believe sets them apart and helps with their overall growth. I had another offer with a much larger company, I'd be doing the same type of work in the same industry, but I would of had 43 PEOPLE in my department alone. With a smaller company that is rapidly growing I see some pains that might occur longer hours and some stressful days, but if you stick with it in 10 years you could look back and realize you made the best financial decision going with the smaller company with great opportunity!

    Graphic Designer Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Oklahoma City, OK
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    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!

    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!

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. I interviewed at Paycom (Oklahoma City, OK) in January 2015.

    Interview

    It was difficult. I had to talk with 3 people and go over scenarios. I would recommend researching and knowing about the company and what you want to strive for in a career. They seem to know what they are looking for.

    NCS Specialist Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Oklahoma City, OK
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    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.

    COBRA Specialist Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Oklahoma City, OK
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    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.

    Implementation Specialist Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Tampa, FL
    No Offer
    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.
