I interviewed at Paycom (Tempe, AZ)

Interview

A recruiter reached out to me for the AE position and description. I researched the role and company, scheduled a conversation and wasted my lunch break when I realized we were discussing an outside sales role. This was confirmed when he emailed the outside sales application. I messaged, asking for clarification, and he left me a voicemail saying that the roles are the same and that Paycom uses “extensive lingo”. I took a screen shot for the AE role description directly from their site and sent it, saying this is the role I thought we were discussing (no cold calling, book of business and retention of customers, etc). He replied confirming that the roles are indeed distinct and that we can “definitely go down that route”. I was too annoyed at the bait and switch tactic to pursue anything further. No interview pursued.

Had to do a hacker rank. Fairly straightforward but heard back from them after a long time. They do campus recruiting and most people get an interview if you approach the on campus recruiter.

Interview Questions

Very professional and thorough. From phone screen call to zoom interviews with Lead Verification Specialists to the final interview with Supervisors, the process was very satisfying. I appreciated the quick feed back after each step to keep me apprised of the status of my application.

Interview Questions
  • I was asked many questions, basically about my background, why I wanted to be a part of Paycom and what I expected. There were questions about how I had handled certain situations in my past jobs and possibly how I could have handled them better.

Application

I applied online. I interviewed at Paycom (Oklahoma City, OK)

Interview

Phone screen with recruiter interview with hiring manager and team member, interview with another member of management and VP, and final interview with two business leaders. Entire process was very smooth and enjoyable from an applicant experience. And took about 5 weeks from application submittal to offer. The recruiter I worked with, Caitlin, was fantastic. She was very responsive, helpful, and could not have provided a better experience. Unfortunately, I declined due to receiving a better overall offer. I was surprised in some of the areas Paycom benefits were lacking.
