Typical day involves managing, growing and prospecting your territory to hit your forecasted revenue goal.
I have learned a lot of new sales techniques and styles.
Management in my experience was constantly changing.
Co-workers were great.
Hardest part of the job was with the implementation process.
The most enjoyable part of the job was the Sales Training week.

Senior Outside Sales Associate (Current Employee) –  Burnaby, BC3 February 2015
ADP is like many fortune 500 companies, there is lots of red tape and they do a great job of getting in their own way.

Politics and management blunders are very high here and if you can avoid those traps ADP can be a great company to work for. Expectations are average.
Pros
Good work life balance
Cons
No room for advancement

I learnt a lot from working here and started my sales career here. If you are in with the right people, you will get extra deals and be treated differently.

Trust Accounting at ADP
Trust Accounting Analyst (Former Employee) –  Etobicoke, ON25 January 2016
I learned in this job the multitasking to be able to meet the tight deadlines specially in task of forecasting.
Also be a team player as there could be days that co worker is very busy and would need assistance.
We act as a "police" thru our GL reconciliations as we ensure that other departments are processing the correct adjustments in our system.
The most enjoyable part is the flexibility in working hours.
Pros
Early work
Cons
Distance from Home

ADP had a wonderful work environment and treated the employees fair.
Telephone Service Representative (Former Employee) –  Toronto, ON20 May 2015
I worked part-time providing payroll input in the Small Business Solutions Department.

With over 9 years working as a Telephone Service Representative I've learned interpersonal and customer service skills.

Management was always open to hearing my ideas and concerns when it came to making improvement in the department.

By developing a relationship with each individual, we worked together to resolve even complex issues. You will find that my work ethic is well developed, and I consistently pay attention to detail whether working as an individual, or as part of a team.

On a personal note, working with others is a highlight of my past roles, as it gives me great personal satisfaction.
Pros
On high volume days healthy lunches were provided to us.

Work for ADP PURELY for the income!
Director, Digital Product Marketing (Former Employee) –  etobicoke2 April 2015
Regrettably, ADP Canada is a highly political, blame oriented organisation. If you are in a management, director role - you are given all the responsibility when it goes wrong, but none of the resources to fix things, and an overwhelming workload - with senior management merely shrugging when you tell them that something has to be moved off your plate. You are told that it is all your responsibility and nothing can be dropped.

The Canadian president works in the 1980's Bullying management style. It is a culture driven by fear.

Career advancement means finding a role that does not have prime responsibilities, then using all your time to smile, act in control, and use thick loads of political schmoozing for your own advancement. Also it will help if you can artfully take credit for yourself... and learn to blame others.

Before being fired, one VP Marketing (DM) blamed his staff of directors for the gross budget mismanagement. Sadly - his directors were excellent budgeters... but DM failed to accept responsibility for budgeting incompetence to the tune of $1M over for 2 years in a row (and $1M underbudget for the first year). Fortunately, he spent 100% of his time on politics and planning out his next career move. Great talker - incompetent leader/marketer!

Overall - ADP came from the banking industry, and has maintained the old 1980's culture and political system. You DEFINITELY want to avoid working here!
Pros
Some cool ADP Chachka - occasionally
Cons
culture, excessive politics, failing products, massive backlog problems on implementation, HUGE customer dissatisfaction with new products

It's a great place to work if you like being challenged. It's a demanding high paced job and they treat their fast horses very well. If you don't mind always been pushed to be better than you are then its a great opportunity to grow

Decent place to work at.
District Manager (Inside and Outside Sales) (Former Employee) –  Burnaby, BC28 November 2012
Alot of staff does not attain their sales targets.
For the SBS department; the management is the primary reason for VERY high staff turnover.
The salary is low and benefits are standard. Commission structure is horrible.
Pros
half day on your birthday and a small giftcard
Cons
low pay and horrible commission structure.
