    Tax Specialist Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Oklahoma City, OK
    Accepted Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Paycom (Oklahoma City, OK).

    Interview

    Smoke and mirrors. Lots of pointless tests and hoops to jump through. They make a huge deal about there background check but it's just a standard one. They also don't necessarily interview for the position you apply for. It's all to make it seem like, if you're picked, that you've gone through some rigorous process when in reality it's just a long one.

    Interview Questions

    • There weren't any difficult or unexpected questions in the interview. Just Google interview questions (like they did) and find the answers and you'll do fine.   1 Answer

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ months. I interviewed at Paycom (Oklahoma City, OK) in April 2017.

    Interview

    The process took about 4 months to land an interview since they have just started to interview upcoming college graduates. The receptionists were very quick with check-in. There was a mathematics and reasoning assessment on a computer shortly before the interview in which you need to try to answer 50 questions in 12 minutes as best as you can. The interviewers were friendly, but vague on what they were looking for in a candidate. The interview lasted about 30 minutes per interviewer. There were 2 of them at separate times, so 1 hour total. One of the interviewers looked at their phone during the conversation while I was speaking to them. The interviewees that attended with me all looked to be college students indicating there is a young culture at Paycom. Apply if you want to be thrown in the usual social occurrences that you would see at college campus. There also seems to be a lack of diversity even though they claim otherwise--and will continue to claim otherwise. This was the discouraging factor for me.

    Quality Assurance Interview

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at Paycom (Oklahoma City, OK) in April 2017.

    Interview

    Nice and professional interview process. Unfortunately I got radio silence after the second interview. The professional thing to do would be to send at least a form letter to decline the offer to you. They request all kinds of feedback throughout the interview process then give you none.

    Sales Recruiter Interview

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. I interviewed at Paycom (Oklahoma City, OK) in April 2017.

    Interview

    I sent in an application and had an employee pass my resume along to HR. I was called soon after to be screened and then they offered me an interview in Oklahoma City, OK. I interviewed with who would be my direct supervisor. She reviewed my resume, asked questions for 30-45 minutes, showed me the office, and had me shadow an individual currently in the position. I asked several questions and by the time I left it was a total of 1.5-2 hours for the entire interview process. I wasn't able to meet with the Director of the department during that period of time, so I had a 20 minute phone call with her the next day. Following the phone call, I get a call from a recruiter offering me the position.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. I interviewed at Paycom (Oklahoma City, OK) in April 2017.

    Interview

    Two small phone interviews, some pre testing before, excel, 10 key, typing tests, then a two person interview. Do your research, show why you want to work for the company, if you do your research your enthusiasm alone will help you. Really easy to work with I had to put in a longer than usual notice at previous employment, and they were very understanding and helpful.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Paycom (Oklahoma City, OK) in March 2017.

    Interview

    I got a call from Paycom asking for a phone interview which were pretty basic questions and at the end scheduled an in person interview for 2 days later. When I got there I took a test and was told to sit in a room for the interview. Lady was very nice and asked me some questions about my resume. After that she got her boss and I ended up having two other people interview me. Both were awesome! Ended up getting a job offer and I accepted. All in all it was a very positive experience.

    Payroll Tax Specialist Interview

    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

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

    Interview

    Applied on their website. A few days later I had a phone interview with a recruiter which went well. Directly after this they have you do some typing and data entry tests. If you pass that, you get an in person interview scheduled. Before the on site interview you do another test, which is composed of basic math problems. You finish as many as you can in a 10 or 12 minute time span. After this they interview you. I felt my interview went alright. They said they would let me know whether or not I had been hired in about a week. That never happened. The on site interview was the last I heard from them, no email or anything. After 18 days, I saw on their website that they had filled the position.

    I applied through college or university. I interviewed at Paycom (Oklahoma City, OK) in March 2017.

    Interview

    Phone screening, then online personality assessment, excel assessment, and typing test. After that, they make you do a logic and reasoning test before your first in-person interview. I don't know what happened after that, they didn't hire me because I was going to get my CPA.

    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Paycom (Oklahoma City, OK) in February 2017.

    Interview

    I applied online through Paycom's website. Within a week, I was contacted by a recruiter to come in for an interview. The interview was supposed to be 5-10 minutes, but I was in there for almost 30 - because there was so much to talk about! I was called back by the recruiter to interview for another position in the company they thought would better serve my talents. That interview went well also! I am thankful to work for an awesome company!
