Very Difficult Interview

Sales Executive Interview

Sales Executive

I applied through a recruiter and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Paycom in December 2013.

Interview Details Initially you will be contacted by a recruiter or you can do what I did and call the recruiter directly. They look over your resume and they have you apply online. Based on your answers online you will be classified into how interested they are in you. If you are what they are looking for they will have you interview with a local office manager. If that goes well you will interview with a regional. If you pass that they will bring you in for a phone canvassing trial. They give you 4 hours to set 3 appointments cold calling. Just keep calm and don't get stressed or anxious, if you are decent on the phone you shouldn't have any issues. If you pass this phase you will interview with the Chief Sales Officer and he will give his recommendation. If all of this goes well you have to pass a background check that includes DMV driving record, drug screening, felony check and don't lie on your resume because they will check all of that. It's a pretty in depth process but if you get the job you know you a qualified employee and they want to invest in you and watch you unleash your potential.

Interview Question – Are you excited about earning a 50,000 salary fresh out of college? Would you be happy earning 50,000 your first year? A lot of our reps here at Paycom make over 100,000 their first year and the following years they make 300,000 and above. If you're content making 50,000 a year how do we know you will have the ambition and drive to work hard enough to make 100,00 and beyond?   View Answer

Negotiation Details – The salary was already stated so i didn't negotiate salary.

1. Why would you be a great fit for this position
2. Why do you think you'd be great at sales
3. Why do you want to work at Paycom?

Interview Question – What do you like to do in your spare time?   Answer Question

Sales Executive Interview

Sales Executive
Dallas, TX (US)

I applied through college or university and the process took 2+ weeks - interviewed at Paycom.

Interview Details I met a recruiter at my university career fair. Called by HR the week following, had a 1:1 interview a few days later, & now it's going on 2 weeks without feedback. From my understanding it is a lengthy interviewing process

Interview Question – Standard questions. Where do you see yourself in 5 years? etc. etc.   Answer Question
