Inside Sales Associate was asked...May 6, 2011

If you could be #1 employee but have all your coworkers dislike you or you could be #15 employee and have all your coworkers like you, which would you choose?

46 Answers

There are 53,000 employees at ADP. To have 14 people ranked higher than you within that organisation is still a sign that you are one of the most valuable employees. Better to have 14 people ranked higher than you and have a productive and courteous relationship with your coworkers than to be #1 and have a dysfunctional relationship with your coworkers. Less

I can hardly envision a company or a scenario where a person disliked by his or her co-workers would be the Number 1 employee. Organizations require relationships to achieve results. It would have to be a place where everyone worked independently of each other for this scenario to happen. Less

I'd definitely go for being the #15 employee. Being hated at work is going to destroy your productivity, both by making you loathe your job and making it nearly impossible for you to motivate a team of co-workers to get bigger projects done. Less

Sell me your sell phone...

4 Answers

It’s after your initial offer. They sent me documents on a Friday and took the offer back because it wasn’t completed on Monday. It was a weekend no business is open. I’m highly disappointed in their process. Less

They're looking for you to asses customer needs, build value and close.

Too bad it's a cellphone, not a sell phone.

I was quite offended when they spent an hour questioning me about my core beliefs, values, and experience, and then left me time for 1 question before letting me know they had another meeting. Very unprofessional especially after they tell that the interview process is a 2-way street and the candidate is interviewing the company and vice versa.

No reply just left - would not work there

As a Sales Manager at Netsertive I will take full responsibility for this. We do believe in the 2 way nature of interviewing and try hard to leave time for questions even in the very first in person interview. Sorry it did not work out that way in your particular case. Please don't hesitate to contact me directly with any other feedback or questions. Less

Have to agree with Anonymous. The one sided interview process is an indicator of the work experience. Explains the churn and burn of staff there - especially in sales. Salaries are below market, benefits are expensive, but you'll get tons of t-shirts you don't want or need. This is a great place to gain entry level experience, unfortunately they expect developed skills at their salaries. I wish them luck, but this late in the game, they should have sold already. Less

Tell me about a time you had a problem with a co-worker you couldn't solve?

4 Answers

...well, for the time I couldn't resolve the problem, and it didn't affect my work performance and I was able to execute my work duties regardless the relationship with my peers workers, eventually the problem would dissolve and solve itself. If there was ever an issue I couldn't solve after timeless energy put into resolving said issue(s), with one of the executives or owner(s), it eventually affected the execution of the company because I was positioned in a leadership position, and prove to be counterproductive, which in turn, would force me to resign, if I wasn't fired first, to keep from being a liability to the company instead of an asset. Less

There are no problems that can't be resolved or ignored, with the proper approach between the parties. Therefore, if the unresolved problem exist and it isn't relevant to the objective of the company, then it doesn't exist. Less

...I was appointed Bar Manager and hadn't had a chance to introduce myself to everyone, yet. I could hear some of the chatter made by a few employees about certain preferences they were going to have, regardless of who the Bar Manager was. Some preferences mentioned were so contrary to what I considered building a comfortable, "team oriented", transparent environment with certain standards that were already set prior to/upon my hiring, that I had to speak on the comments when it was my time to speak. We agreed to disagree, mainly because I had anything to say, at all, which resulted in them not furthering their application and me setting a standard conducive to effective customer service and able to meet the company objective.
