    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at ADP in December 2014.

    Interview Details

    The interview process is four steps. So far, I have completed the first two steps and await the next two. It has been great thus far!

    I live out of state, so my first two interviews were over the phone. The first was with a recruiter. The second was with the VP in sales for the area which I applied. Both were very nice and easy to talk to. If you interview with the company definitely be yourself! It sounds to me like this is a great job, IF you fit well in this type of environment. From everything I have read and researched, the job is VERY competitive. If you can't handle that or do not enjoy competing, do not apply. If you like that type of environment, try it out.

    Don't be nervous though because the people interviewing are VERY nice and easy to speak with.

    I applied online. The process took a dayinterviewed at ADP.

    Interview Details

    Really bizarre. I applied online and the interviewer told me it would be relaxed and casual but in about 1 minute they seemed to not care at all about what they were doing. They stated it was because of the season and whatnot. They asked the usual "Why ADP" and work experience questions. Interviewer seemed really uninterested and even bored, like this was something they had to do to meet quota.

    Interview Questions
    • Nothing. The three were generic. I felt like it was a pageantry contest more than anything. If you have a great social media profile, then hooray. I think that's what they're looking for, which I think is silly: not everyone wants to be plastered on the Internet.   Answer Question

    I applied through other source – interviewed at ADP.

    Interview Details

    I can tell you the recruitment department has no idea what they are doing so they clearly seem to take anyone they can and see who the managers will like. They were all over the place when talking to me, and never sent me the correct information. I was asked to drive to the city where I was interviewing for a day and they asked me to come super early so I did. I met with the VP of sales who gave me general questions, and at this point I learned that they were a low performing office. After I met with a manager and did a sales pitch which was quite easy (he told me I did really good) I went on the field ride. Which is where the red flags came up the sales rep was late to the business, and was in the business texting friends while talking to the client. If this is how a good sales rep acts I wouldn't want to work for this company. I walked out not wanting the job, and got my rejection letter days later

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at ADP.

    Interview Details

    Interview with recruiter - Interview with sales manager - Trial day - Interview with sales director.
    This role was for outside sales to small businesses 1-49 employees.
    Interviews were all relatively straight forward with no tough questions. The process took around 3 weeks however I declined the role. The knock on door approach may work for Avon Reps or Girl scouts, this is I.T solution sales

    Interview Questions
    Reasons for Declining

    Compensation on offer is way below industry average and there is no territory. i.e knock on doors to make sales. This is IT solutions sales not avon rep. However this appears to be the approach taken

    Interview Details

    They first contacted me by phone and thats where we set up the phone interview. During the phone interview the woman I spoke to was very positive and gave me a set of guidelines to follow for the next interview. I then did an in person interview. They asked me to describe how the company works in my own way and then she asked me a series of questions about my self. The whole process took three days. The day after my in person interview I was contacted by email about another interview.
