Difficult Interview
Application

I applied online. I interviewed at Paylocity (Meridian, ID) in Apr 2020

Interview

Not very technical. However, the challenge is that they try to throw you off with very specific questions about your experiences coupled with broad questions. For instance, they would ask me three parts of my past job that I hated the most, and why, and I had to be very specific and detailed with exact situations, time, place, solution, etc. And then they would turn around and ask me what is the one single most proud moment in my life has been. They didn't hit me with any technical questions but I found those specific situational questions back to back with huge broad questions to be more challenging that I would have initially thought. The key to interviewing here (for this position at least) is to come in with SPECIFIC situations and instances of you problem solving, critically thinking, etc. in your life.

Interview Questions
  • What is a very detailed and specific situation that you solved a problem? How did you solve it? What was your thought process? What was the outcome of the situation?

Thorough interviews including phone, in person, and 2 case studies. One case study was individual and one was group. Behavioral individual interviews both over the phone and in person. Very friendly treatment and gave good sense of the company culture and program expectations

Interviewed with a recruiter & interviewed with the hiring manager. Then never heard anything back. Disappointing because they spoke highly of the culture. It seems like the culture lacks when it comes to candidates. Just a simple thanks but no thanks email is better than nothing.

I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at Paylocity (Arlington, VA) in Apr 2021

Interview

I was contacted by a Paylocity hiring manager who had found my resume on a 3rd party website. Interview was conducted over Zoom and consisted of standard interview questions, including “why should we hire you?” There were about three sets of questions and I replied to each with 4-5 sentence answers. The interview lasted about 30 minutes, then I waited another 30 to find out that I had been hired.

I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at Paylocity (New York, NY) in Apr 2021

Interview

I had a first interview scheduled with a recruiter. She called me ten minutes late - said the job has already been filled and hung up! It honestly felt awful. I don't remember experiencing such unprofessional and disrespecful behavior in my professional career. I spent time preparing and took time off my current job for the interview and she just left me completely high amd dry. It's ok the job has been filled and it's ok to not hire someone regardless to how much time they spent preparing - but atleast have a very basic decency and respect people's time. Truly awful behavior.

I applied through an employee referral I interviewed at Paylocity in Mar 2021

Interview

There was the first interview which was a phone interview with the recruiter after I expressed interest for the position. Then they sent me a Hackerrank question to complete. A day after, I got the email for the next interview which was 2 x 30 minute interviews— one behavioral then technical. Overall, the people were great to talk to and I enjoyed the experience! They take great pride in their company’s programs and CEO, and you can tell from the way they talk about their passion working with Paylocity.
