    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online – interviewed at Paycom (Houston, TX (US)).

    Interview

    The first interview I walked in and everyone was very nice and I proceeded to take an assessment test which was pretty easy. It was a 50 question wonderlic test. Then I did a video interview for about 20 minutes with the direct supervisor of my position. It was super relaxed and all the questions were expected from an interview, nothing that was surprising.

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral – interviewed at Paycom.

    Interview

    Had phone interview a few days after applying. Phone interview seemed promising. Then was asked to come for in-person interview. Interviewers were not very friendly or enthusiastic. Continued to ask questions related to my current position versus why I wanted a career with Paycom. I knew walking out I would not get an offer. I felt like they did not even try to get to know me and what I could offer to their team.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at Paycom (Kansas City, MO (US)) in March 2015.

    Interview

    I was reached out by an outside recruiter about the position. Decided to come in and interview with the sales manager. Easy conversation, very normal sales interview and lasted about 30-45 minutes long. I came back for the second step which was the phone canvass interview with the team. They did a great job of prepping me and what to expect. The team was also helpful while I was there. However, I did not get offered the position after that but I will continue to keep in touch as my sales career develops. The manager also took time to respond to my email with feedback from the interview process which was appreciated.

    I applied in-person – interviewed at Paycom.

    One phone screening, this is straight forward, behavior and guestimating your amount of skill level with coding. Next will be an interview. Then another, then finally one last interview. Overall, the process is not hard.

    Application

    The process took a weekinterviewed at Paycom (Denver, CO (US)).

    Interview

    It wasn't too difficult. You just need to relate your past sales experience. They are looking for aggression and grit. You need to convey that you will stick with it no matter what. You then have an onsite interview and you have to set 3 appointments from 9 until noon. If you can do that you get to the final interview with the vp.

    The process took a weekinterviewed at Paycom (Charlotte, NC (US)).

    Interview

    Interviewed with recruiter , he asked basic questions and gave a description. Next was being referred to the paycom office sales manager. She was very nice. A lot of detail oriented questions but I felt good coming out. I was the ideal candidate. Had massive successful experience in sales and thought I would hear back for the next round which was going to be a shadow with them, potentially making sales calls to see how I would do. Heard nothing back from them. No follow up at all. Not even a rejection. Seems they already had their candidate ready and we're just interviewing to interview. Moral of story they will likely have horrible communication throughout the whole process and leave you upset trying to figure out why

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3 daysinterviewed at Paycom (Oklahoma City, OK (US)) in March 2015.

    Interview

    I was contacted via telephone a day after applying by a recruiter. I was directed to take 3 assessment tests. I took a 10 key test, typing test and an excel test. I did well on each. I signed an agreement that I had no felonies or traffic violations. The recruiter called back the same day and set up an interview. Upon arriving, I took a math and reasoning test which was fairly easy. It was timed. I was interviewed by two people separately and then the recruiter came in and offered me the job contigent upon a drug screen, background check, credit check, and reference checks. I received an email the same day as the interview regarding a medical collection against me and was asked by HR to address it. I received a phone call the next day stating they were retracting the offer due to my credit report.

    I applied through a recruiter – interviewed at Paycom (Oklahoma City, OK (US)) in March 2015.

    Interview

    The recruiter was very nice and easy to talk to, however when I came in to interview with the manager it was awful. She didn't want to talk about the position much. Really poor social skills. I knew I wasn't getting the job just by her attitude but there wasn't anything that I did wrong. It's hard to explain.....very weird experience.

    The process was promising and inviting. Good follow up and guide to the interview. Interview was done by Department topshots.
