    Positive Experience
    Average Interview


    I applied online. I interviewed at Paychex (Albuquerque, NM) in July 2017.


    The interview process was fast, clear, and communicative. Stephen Martinez was amazing! He kept me informed of each step and the expectations of each, and was very accessible when I had questions. It was an 8 day process from applying to job offer (which is phenomenally quick!).
