Easy Interview

Graduate Scheme Interview

Graduate Scheme

I applied online and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at ADP in April 2014.

Interview Details I have been contacted roughly after a week I submitted my application form for scheduling a telephone interview. The interview was pretty simple with questions such as what are you studying, what are the other applications you have done, why ADP, what are your skills for the job and some competency based questions. The lady on the phone was really nice. They invited me at the Assessment Centre after a couple of weeks. Baseci structure of assessment centre: group work and presentation, writing exam, face-to-face interview with competency based questions.

Interview Question – Tell me about a time when you and your suggestion were ignored by everyone around you. How did you cope with that situation?   View Answer

SBS District Manager Interview

SBS District Manager

I applied through a recruiter and the process took 2+ weeks - interviewed at ADP in June 2010.

Interview Details There first is a phone interview, next was a field ride and the final was a roleplay and meeting with the VP of sales. The field ride was a full day in the field and you get to see what a day in the life of the role looks like. The roleplay mainly consisted of him wanting to make sure I closed for the sale.

Interview Question – "If you were not at your quota and it was the last day of the month, where would you turn to in order to get business?"   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – You cannot negotiate. It is a starting base salary plus commission structure that is already mapped out by region.

I applied through a recruiter and interviewed at ADP.

Interview Details Interview process is pretty intense. Be prepared for several interviews. The recorded interview is awkward. The phone interview is pretty standard.

Sales Recruiter Interview

Sales Recruiter
Dallas, TX (US)

I applied through a recruiter and the process took 2 months - interviewed at ADP in May 2014.

Interview Details I spoke with the initial recruiter (who would be my direct report), another recruiting manager, the director of recruiting, performed an online interview, and spoke with an additional corporate recruiter. This process took about 3 weeks. I was told that someone would follow up with me. I had asked all interviewers, "is there anything that makes you think I am unable to perform this job?" All responses were positive and reassuring that I matched the skill set and company culture. I NEVER HEARD ONE SINGLE WORD BACK! I reached out to the recruiters and they just flat out ignored me. I was very shocked at the level of unprofessionalism and their process on recruiting. It definitely left a bad taste in my mouth about the company as a whole. A recruiter's primary function is to communicate with candidates on their progress in the interview process. I really expected a generic email at the very least after speaking with so many people. It has now been over 1 month since I've received any type of communication.

Interview Question – Questions were very generic. 1. Why do you want to work for ADP? 2. Tell me about your biggest challenge etc..   Answer Question

Major Accounts District Manager Interview

Major Accounts District Manager
Portland, OR (US)

I applied online - interviewed at ADP in July 2010.

Interview Details Difficult to start a process without going through HR recruiters and week out HR interview first. My process was 8 years ago and it didn't seem to change much. There is a test although that may be going away. Somehow ADP has this linked to the stremaline division and I worked for the US Employer services division and streamline is a product offered by that division. It would not surprise me to learn that they have ensured that the US portion is as difficult as possible to review on Glassdoor. enough said.

Interview Question – Nothing unexpected or terribly difficult, you will have to make a presentation, again not difficult or unexpected.   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – Attempted too but there was and is no give in this area.
