    Corporate Recruiter Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Dallas, TX (US)
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at Paycom (Dallas, TX (US)) in September 2018.

    Interview

    Scheduled a phone interview and it started out well but the recruiter didn't have a lot of experience and was a little condescending. We spoke for about an hour total and the last 10 minutes she said she had to ask some standard HR questions. She asked if I had a college degree and I said yes then she asked if I got a 3.0 gpa or higher. I told her that I graduated over 15 years ago and I believe it was close to 3.0 gpa but I would have to check. Then the Paycom recruiter told me that Pay Com doesn’t hire anyone unless they have a gpa of 3.0 or higher…. I was very surprised by that but we continued. We started going through my resume and at one point in my career I was unemployed for 3 months during the great recession when the company I worked for went bankrupted and closed. It took a little bit of time during that period to find a new position. Then Pay Com recruiter stated that they don’t hire people that have been unemployed for more than 60 days…. Then I told her, this is probably something you should start out with in an interview not something you bring up after an hour of conversation. I thanked her for her time and hung up.

    OUTSIDE SALES Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Seattle, WA (US)

    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Paycom (Seattle, WA (US)).

    Interview

    The process was fine until it wasn't. I got a call from a recruiter and did the in person interview with the manager. The interview was alright- the manager liked to talk about herself and didn't ask me questions about my successes so I felt that was underrepresented. Then she asked me a question about my resume and made a wrong assumption about how long I worked there. Clearly did not even look at my resume before the interview. Then nothing. No follow ups from the recruiter- I had to reach out to them afterward.

    OUTSIDE SALES Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Baltimore, MD (US)
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Paycom (Baltimore, MD (US)).

    Interview

    I interviewed with Paycom about a year ago, but I wanted to bring this issue to the company's attention. Around this time last year I made it through to the third round of interviews and did very well in the previous two. For some reason though, when I met with the manager for the final interview, it became apparent that they weren't interested in hiring me. Their primary objection were apparently my grades in college (I already had a successful career in sales and had been in the workforce for the better part of a decade), and they began speaking to me in a very condescending and unprofessional manner. This is the first time, even for a job that I didn't get, where the manager was openly rude. They also shot down any point that I brought up about my previous successes as though I was making it up.

    Even when we began small talk initially, they asked how I was and I said something simple like "Great now that I've had my coffee! : )" and they, with a dead serious face, asked me "what, are you some sort of coffee addict? It's like 10:00 am I feel like you should have your act together at this point". THEY WERE DEAD SERIOUS. Look I understand if you're not interested in a candidate, but for god sake hold yourself like a professional. I've interviewed in jobs where the office was a practically a storage unit and I still received more professional treatment.

    I know its easy to complain when you don't get something, but I was so bothered and thrown off by it that I felt compelled to notify someone. I even told her about my accomplishments and they actually said "yeah, but how do I know your not just making all this up ?" - Seriously?? First of all, the same way everyone has always done, which is checking the references. Second, you do not speak to people like they are terrible little children.

    I know I sound bitter, but this gave me a very poor impression of the management there.

    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Paycom (Charlotte, NC (US)) in March 2012.

    Interview

    Contacted by a recruiter by phone and after a 20 minute conversation was asked to schedule a 1:1 interview with regional sales manager. The interview was a standard behavioral interview. During the interview, the interviewer acknowledged that they had been searching for a candidate for the position for several months and no one had "fit the bill" that they were looking for. I received no response after the interview even after attempts to follow up for several weeks. A few months later, I was called by another recruiter interested in scheduling me for an interview for the same position.

    OUTSIDE SALES Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Denver, CO (US)

    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    The process took 2 days. I interviewed at Paycom (Denver, CO (US)) in May 2011.

    Interview

    1 on 1, phone interview with regional manager, phone canvasing, ceo. Overall, their process for interviewing is good. However, there is little feedback and if you have experience in sales it seems like you have little shot at the opportunity. Must be a college grad or little sales experience. Zero feedback from a seemingly inexperienced manager. Seemed to be a good place to work, but don't expect a professional interview process until you move on later in the rounds.

    The recruiter for the phone interview was outstanding, professional, and very helpful. The actual interview at the atlanta office was horrible. I meet the branch manger and she was very cold. She asked me some basic questions that could have been answered had she simply read my resume.
