Lack of Training is frustrating
Coworkers are fantastic. It's difficult to communicate with management and there is little to no training.

You would think that such a large (Global) company would be on top of training and hiring new people, but they're seriously lacking in this department and it's sad because they're losing so many amazing people!


The 38k is not worth the amount of stress you'll have to deal with.
Pros
Decent money, good benefits
Cons
No training or real structure

High volume and great place to learn
Working in the COS department was extremely busy with unlimited workload. The most efficient employees are saddled with the most volume of work.

The learning opportunities are endless as there are regular online courses and internal training sessions offered. The employee education program is one of the best in the industry and certainly one of the strengths of the company. Through hands on training or by networking with other associates within the organization an individual can pick up the knowledge and experience that would take years or even decades to attain elsewhere. ADP is an unofficial payroll learning factory.


Management is very supportive when it comes to dealing with client concerns. There is an understanding that job quality will suffer due to the high volume of work. The mandate of management is to minimize or completely eliminate overtime pay. Employees are expected to balance between volunteering their time for free or let service levels suffer as the work cannot be completed within the standard working hours.


Another great strength of the organization is the employees. ADP has some of the hardest working, knowledgeable and most supportive employees in any company. Coworkers rally around each other to assist during peak periods. There is a very close bond between coworkers that is very special and unique. I would be happy to work with any of my former ADP colleagues should another opportunity arise.


The hardest part of the job is knowing you can either give 100% of your attention to 80% of your clients or provide 80% of the quality needed

Company was a disappointment
The job was perm. It was supposed to be stable. Was supposed to have an amazing work culture, what a fail. I left a higher paying position for what should have been a stable position. Not only did they discriminate my gender they used the trainer as a sounding board to report my personal life to managers and justify firing me after 3 weeks of completing training.

I have had some progressional regrets in my life, but this by far tops it. I no longer trust the big corporate companies that sell their super working conditions who promise employees come first and have left the field altogether.


I had to make a complaint to labour board just to get paid as they “forgot my day of work”, made an error on my record of employment and refuse to send me my papers. And this is a payroll service company. Took 5 weeks to get final pay.


This job was not worth the hassle, they lied about working conditions in the interview, they lied about work schedule during the offer and they have 3 managers who are completely incompetent and who will forever mark my time there as negative.
Pros
Good benefits
Cons
Long hours, black out periods, poor management
