Easy Interview

Application

I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Paycom (Oklahoma City, OK) in November 2016.

Interview

Phone interview. Skills test. Two in person interviews (One with the manager. One with the CIO.). They started with a call about my application. Then sent me a link to test my knowledge (kinda insulting but okay). Then pulled me in for two interviews. Last interview was a dud CIO was not very interested in answering questions. Did not seem to really care.

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at Paycom (Oklahoma City, OK) in October 2016.

    Interview

    The interview had 3 rounds,
    First, an on-campus interview.
    Second, an online test on PHP mySQL and C#.
    Third, an onsite interview with a Senior Developer.

    On campus was the longest one had mostly technical questions and a few behavioral which included classic questions like why this company, why your university, my major interests and previous work.
    Online test is pretty simple, if you know basics of PHP C# and MySQL. I did my homework so it was easy.
    On-site was just a 5 min interview. No technical stuff at all, just questions about my previous work.

    Overall the experience was really awesome, simple and straight forward. The HR dept. rep was really helpful throughout the process.

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Paycom (Norman, OK) in November 2014.

    Interview

    Applied through Career Fare. Got a call to setup interview which will be held ON-CAMPUS and after getting selected. You will be called for ONSITE interview which is quite exciting for me as this is my first internship.

    Interview Questions

    • They asked about my previous projects (which are present on my resume). As my undergrad background is Electronics and Communications, they asked me why I am interested in Computer Science. Tell me about your previous CS projects you are involved.
      After getting selected ON-CAMPUS, ONSITE interview is pretty good. Little more detailed explanation about previous project and I was asked --- how do you find whether given pair of words are anagrams or not? Basic DS helps you to crack interview.....

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Paycom (Oklahoma City, OK) in October 2014.

    Interview

    The toughest part of the interview process was driving to OKC. The communication between HR was excellent and the interviews were very comfortable and pleasant. HR contacted me and set up a first interview. The afternoon of my first interview, I received a phone call asking me when I would be available for my second interview. One day following my second interview, I was made an offer. HR was available via phone or email to answer any questions that I had along the way and the interviewers were very easy to talk to.

    Interview Questions

    • I prepared for the interview questions, so I didn't find any of them to be difficult or unexpected. Most of them had to do with my previous programming experience and the level of skills that I had with each programming language.   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    I had done my homework on the position and I had a bottom line amount that I could accept before I would even consider moving. Their first offer was competitive and met my expectation.
