Sales Representative Interview

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.

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at Paycom.

    Interview

    The interview process is pretty intense as Paycom only hires the best of the best. First step was an interview via video conference with a recruiter, followed by an in-person interview with sales manager. The final step was to present to the sales team for roughly 15 minutes and then get on the phones to cold call companies with the team. During that time you need to set a minimum of 3 meetings in order to move on to final interview with regional manager.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Paycom.

    Interview

    Interviewed with 3 people, filled out my schedule to start, then got a rejection e-mail the next day. I asked what went wrong in the process and was told they can't tell me that information. A recruiter reached out again and apologized and said they would work to fix this. Filled out all of the same paperwork again, and when it was time to schedule my interview, I was ignored for 3 days. When e-mailing to confirm all paperwork was received, I got a rejection e-mail an hour later. Hope it is improved for others, good luck!

    We always aim to be respectful of our candidates’ time. Our recruiters should not have ignored your emails. These practices do not align with the recruiting department’s core values.

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at Paycom.

    Interview

    A recruiter emailed me through LinkedIn where we corresponded and set up a time to have a phone "interview". The interview was more of a chat and seeing if I would be interested in the position. Then he got me in contact with another person. This woman and I also had a phone interview, but this time it was an actual interview with interview type questions. She basically agreed with the last man that she liked me and she helped set me up with another woman and informed me I would be interviewing through a program similar to Skype (I forgot the name). She helped me practice setting it up and that was that.

    Now is where the big interview came in with the new woman. This woman asked me typical interview questions, but she was pretty rude (not like the nice attitudes of the past two) and she spoke off camera multiple times without giving me a warning or apologizing. All she said was that she was fixing her phone. It felt somewhat rude and unprofessional, but I smiled through it. At the end the woman wanted me to come in and meet who I would be interning for. I said that sounded great and I'd like to go through with that. A few days later I get an email from the second woman I interviewed with saying that they'd like me to have 6-8 months of sales experience before hiring me. Well 1.) If they felt that way the last woman should not have said she was going to set up a time for me to come into the office because that was misleading. 2.) This was for an internship or entry level sales position and they said no experience was needed. 3.) The whole situation could have been handled with more respect. I may only be in my early 20's, but that doesn't give people the right to look down upon me.

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at Paycom in October 2015.

    Interview

    I applied for the job on linkedin and was contacted by a recruiter quickly. My recruiter, Kelsey, was so knowledgeable, passionate and a big reason why I wanted to move forward in the process. She was very clear about the process and what was expected from me. She was one of my biggest fans throughout the entire process. When it was time to do a manager interview on a goto meeting, the questions were pretty tough which really made me want to work here even more!!! My manager wanted to know what made me tick and asked some behavioral and situational questions. She was very professional, easy to talk to and I know now WHY the interview process is such a long process - this company invests so much time and effort in training and its important to find a good fit.

    I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at Paycom.

    Interview

    Very straightforward. I'm from out of town and conducted several interviews via webcam. Asked your typical interview questions. I first spoke with a recruiter and then after that brief conversation I had an interview with the manager. Pretty much got asked the same questions from both people.

    I spoke with a Paycom recruiter over the phone, and he asked me a series of general questions. I told him about my work experience and he acknowledged that it wasn't the typical path. He said I'm typically not the type that they would hire, but could still give it a try by applying online if I wanted.
