    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Paychex (United States)

    Interview

    Applied online and then received an email to schedule a phone screen. Phone screen with HR lasted about 30 minutes. Very professional and conversational about my background. Scheduled the following week for a panel interview with 2 managers via WebEx. The interviewers first told me more about the position before asking me questions. The questions they asked were situational (STAR method) and were about how I handled situations in my former roles. The interviewers were very engaging and interested in my responses. The next day, HR called and extended a job offer. Starting from the initial contact with HR, the entire process was very professional. Everyone I spoke with was very kind and seemed genuinely interested in hearing about my experience. I was kept informed about the process and what to expect, the entire time. It was a very positive experience.
