Paycom

Recruiting Intern

January 2018 • Oklahoma City, OK

What I liked

The team is amazing and the work you do truly makes an impact on the organization as a whole. Every minute you work here you realize how great this company is. Overall, I couldn't have asked for a better internship and a better start to my career.

What I wish was different

Nothing, this internship has been perfect!

Advice

Work hard and strive to be your best. Paycom employees appreciate that and love those who really do everything they can to the best!

Human Capital Management and Leadership Intern

May - August 2019 • Oklahoma City, OK

What I liked

It was the first real corporate experience I had ever had, and it was very hands-on. There were a lot of leadership and development opportunities. Supervisors really wanted to make sure you understood what you were doing and always reached out if you needed help.

What I wish was different

They were very strict about time so it was hard to make any doctor appointments. I understood because the nature of their business is very time-sensitive, but it was almost impossible to try to schedule any kind of appointment.

Advice

Go in with an open mind, and be ready to work. This is the kind of internship where you will get out what you put in.

Junior Executive Sales Intern

June - August 2019 • Philadelphia, PA

What I liked

This internship fully immersed participants in every aspect of the sales cycle at Paycom. I was completing the same tasks as full time reps and my contributions mattered to the success of the office.

What I wish was different

I would have liked a bit more formal training at the start of the program. Paycom's mentality was the best way to learn is to do and they had us jump right into cold calling.

Advice

If you work hard and enjoy a culture of hyper-competition this internship is a great springboard into a lucrative sales career with Paycom. However, do not feel like you need to love what you are doing, I found out pretty early on that I did not like sales which is just as important as learning what you do like.

Database Administration Intern

May 2019 • Oklahoma City, OK

The database team is incredible at Paycom. They put their employees first, and make sure you can succeed personally and professionally. I could not have asked for a better job experience and I’m so excited to join the team full time.

Be a sponge. If there is work you have an interest in, seek it out and ask questions. Everyone is there to help you, but sometimes you have to take that first step.

Sales Intern

June - August 2019 • Miami, FL

What I liked

The overall business acumen you develop. Useful in any sales career. Prospecting, cold-calling and going on meetings. Great environment and team.

What I wish was different

N/A

Make connections with the team and put everything you have into it. Managers want to see you passionate and determined. Don't be afraid and refrain from doing tasks that you feel are uncomfortable. Read Fanatical Prospecting by Jeb Blount before the internship.

Sales Intern

June - August 2019 • Seattle, WA

What I liked

I loved the amount of responsibility I was given. I also received a personal mentor which was awesome to get one on one advice. There was no product training so we were forced to rely solely on pure sale skills.

What I wish was different

I wish I didn’t have to wear a suit everyday! Also the start time was at 7:30 every day which was somewhat early for what I was expecting.

Advice

I would say to definitely get out there and start networking as soon as possible. The earlier you can get your name within their system, the better. It’s also great putting yourself in a position where if you perform well you can earn yourself a full-time position. Even if it’s not the exact job you’re looking for, there’s definitely something to be said for the security of having something lined up post-graduation. Great experience all in all!

Software Development Intern

May - August 2019 • Oklahoma City, OK

What I liked

I loved the culture of Paycom and everything that they put into their Internship program as it really helped me learn a lot about what is expected of my major in the real world. I worked on real projects that had real applications in the company. They treated us just like full-time employees leading to a more accurate portrayal of how things will be once I graduate.

What I wish was different

I wish I could have stayed longer. They compensated us well for your work, made great friends, and learned new and interesting things everyday.

Advice

I would say that getting an internship in the CSE field is not required but very heavily suggested as you will not get everything you need to know for when you graduate just from school. Push yourself to teach yourself new things in your field to stay ahead of the pact.

Internships and new jobs can be nerve-racking. Paycom's onboarding, orientation and training processes are incredible and very inclusive. Walk in the first day with confidence and be ready to learn.

Try to learn a little bit of PHP before the internship starts.
