    Sales Representative Interview

    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.

    Sales Representative Interview

    Anonymous Employee

    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    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.

    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Paycom (Oklahoma City, OK) in February 2015.

    Interview

    1. Basic 5 minute interview about myself with recruiter
    2. Interview in depth with recruiter 30 minutes (basic interview questions)
    3. In person test (12 minutes 50 questions) then interview with sales manager
    4. Interview with regional manager
    5. Cold Calling in person

    The interview process was not too bad, just had to go through a lot of people. I was able to get through it on pure personality and past experience, if you are someone who is interested in sales I would look into it.

    Sales Representative Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Indianapolis, IN

    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Paycom (Indianapolis, IN) in August 2014.

    Interview

    4 steps, 1-3 with a recruiter, 1 face to face with and office manager, 1 face to face with regional manager, must come in and cold call with the sales teem and set 3 appointments in open territory.

    Interview Questions

    • They like the strong close for the next step.   1 Answer

    Negotiation

    No negotiation. You start at a certain set base with a comission structure.
    Once Exec Rep is reached based on performance, salary and commission increased significantly.
    Be warned they can take this away at their discretions. Ask about salary reduction agreement. This policy creates a constant state of fear with reps as its a 30k difference in base pay and that significantly affects you ability to make the needed life adjustments. I was given 2 days notice of this happening.

    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!
