    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at Paycom in October 2016.

    Interview

    I was at first confronted buy a recruiter at their Main corporate office in Oklahoma. I had the initial phone interview which went very well and I research the company already at that point and found that they were a company that has views similar to mine. I was next told that I had to take a personality test, and a cognitive ability test before the interview. During the interview I sat in a very nice office in a nice part of town and spoke with one of the regional directors about the job and had the interview questions completed. Overall everybody was really nice and friendly in the office. Is definitely a company that I can see myself working at and growing myself with given the opportunity. I would like to be apart of the many awards that I see in the main lobby.

    Transition Specialist Representative Interview

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at Paycom (San Francisco, CA) in October 2016.

    Interview

    Process is pretty bureaucratic. Expect a few back and forth emails and calls with an Oklahoma rep, then a few tests, and in-person interviews. The people in Oklahoma are very helpful, however once I finally met with the Silicon Valley/San Francisco employees, the process became difficult to manage. Multiple errors were made--
    1) Despite that I work and live in San Francisco, they rescheduled my SF interview to Silicon Valley more than once. I had to keep calling back to change this because I had explained to them before, I could not make the commute without losing a few hours at my current job.
    2) They rescheduled to a 7am interview from the SF office that would webcam to Silicon Valley. The SF office opened their doors 10 minutes late and my interview then had to be split into parts to make up for the lost time.
    3) Despite having a scheduled follow up in which they said that they would call, they did not. They did not answer after that, either.
    4) Days later, they sent me an email saying that they will not be hiring me as a Garnishment Representative-- which is not the job I interviewed for over the past week and a half.
    Otherwise-- decently pleasant experience. Be ready to relate your previous experience to the job description and practice the Wonderlict tests before hand.

    Easy Interview

    Application

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

    Interview

    It took them about two days before they actually gave me a called back. 1st one will be a phone interview, if you pass this easy phone questions then you automatic move on forward. BUT there an assessment test you have to take afterwards. If you do good on the assessment tests, you will move forward for a second interview, which is basically they call you back and say either you are accepted or not. Third interview, they set up a date and time with you to do an actual person to person interview. You have to take another test, takes about 12 mins, 50 question at their HQ OKC before the actual face to face interview with the Team Leads. Oh yeah, YOU HAVE TO GET THERE 20 MINS AHEAD OF THE SCHEDULE OR DON'T EVEN BOTHER TO GO. Hope this is helpful to you guys, I'm still in the process, if you do get hire and hopefully i do too, Please remember me!!

    Outside Sales Representative Interview

    No Offer
    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Paycom (Chicago, IL) in September 2016.

    Interview

    First round was an initial 20min video interview with a recruiter. After that it was an initial 45-60min video interview with the Branch Manager (or in person if in the same city.
    If asked to move forward in the process there is an in person interview that lasts 4 hours. You have to give a 5-10min presentation about yourself and the company, and then actually set appointments with clients. The goal is 3, but they really are looking to see how you handle objection as well as how you handle yourself on the phones.
    If successful from that point, you are moved on to meet with the Regional Manager who is just running through you background again and making sure they see fit you are capable of performing the role.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at Paycom in August 2016.

    Interview

    I originally learned about Paycom through the OKC Job Fair while a senior in college. They were flexible in my scheduling for an interview and finding the best job to fit my skills. I will say that their hiring process is very extensive after the initial job offer. They go through multiple different checks to officially offer you the position to be hired so keep that in mind before putting in your 2 weeks notice.

    Transition Specialist Representative Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Charlotte, NC

    Neutral Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 6 days. I interviewed at Paycom (Charlotte, NC).

    Interview

    A Paycom recruiter reached out to me on Linkedin. First was a phone screen, next you went into the office for a skype interview and then the last was with the director over skype again. It was pretty simple except for the last interview with the Director. He wanted to make it known he was the boss. He was asking questions that were pointless and had nothing to do with my work experience but wanted to see if you cracked under pressure. Also, the previous person I interviewed was observing me and came on half way through and no one told me about it. They silently came on half way in and I noticed the person and there was no acknowledgment of it. I just got a bad vibe from the whole interview with the director and was neutral about not getting an offer.

    This was back in March. It is now the end of August and I had two separate recruiting firms reach out to me and ask me if I would be interested in interviewing. When I tell them I interviewed in the beginning of spring and now its the end of summer and two other people have reached out to me about they are shocked by it.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at Paycom (Seattle, WA) in June 2016.

    Interview

    I was referred in (highly suggested) and applying remotely so my process was slightly modified. Had a phone call with the corporate recruiter, GoTo Meeting (coat and tie) with my potential manager, 4 hour cold calling session to procure three appointments, post cold call I met in person with my potential manager and regional manager, separately. Word of advice: close the deal when meeting with them.
