    I have been working at Ceridian full-time (More than 8 years)


    Having worked in other companies prior to Ceridian, I can only appreciate the leadership team that is consistently walking the talk, seeking for feedback and doing something with the feedback. The working environment at Ceridian, embraces employees of all ages, of all generations and drives a culture of performance and of passion of the customer and the employees. Ceridian is poised for a vibrant future that I want to be part of !


    Coping with the fast growth is a challenging task. Requiring to keep balance with the present and the fast pacing future has its challenges.

    Data Entry Operator Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Fountain Valley, CA
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview


    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at Ceridian (Fountain Valley, CA) in October 2016.


    Very lengthy, asked a lot of questions, many of which seemed irrelevant. Didn't get a clear picture of the job duties. Many other questions, such as what I did not like about my previous positions. I have a solid and lengthy relevant work history. I left feeling confused and frustrated. The position has been open for weeks now and they are still interviewing. Pay was poor compared to the market and the duties required, which were not stipulated well in the job description.

    Interview Questions

    • How I would manage others. The position was not managerial in nature.   1 Answer
