OUTSIDE SALES Interview

Application Details

I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Paychex in April 2012.

Interview Details

An individual from human resources called me stating that they had found my resume on a job search website via email. I sent the person an email expressing my interest and she promptly called me a very quickly set up a phone interview for later the next week. The actual phone interview was all of 15 minutes and then I was told that I would be getting an application via email. The application took the better part of the afternoon to complete and I was told to have it returned ASAP. After sending the application I received what I am assuming was a canned email string they were "looking very much forward to speaking with me soon". I full week went by and today I got a "canned" rejection letter via email. No follow-up was done at all between then. Interestingly enough, I emailed the human resource rep over the weekend, and then got that email today....

    Application Details

    The process took a dayinterviewed at Paychex in March 2011.

    Interview Details

    Human resources was helpful and fair in the screening process, however failed to follow up with an email in regards to the status of the interview process. Very unclear with the hiring manager as to the outcome of the interview although was indicated in the interview that he/she would follow up with me within a weeks time. I don't expect to hear back from the company based upon the attitude of the interviewing manager. I wouldn't recommend interviewing with this firm unless you have one half of a day to waste, although the company is very large and sustained it seems to be very corporate and mis managed.

    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at Paychex in January 2010.

    Interview Details

    I got the feeling they micro-manage your every move, which is not the kind of environment I do well in. My last interview was with a Manager from another region. He asked me about my work experience (I've been in outsides sales for 15 years) and then decided he should focus his questions on my college years. He asked me why I only had a 3.2 GPA when I graduated from college (this was 23 years ago). This was the point that I knew this was probably the wrong job for me.
