Automatic Data Processing (ADP)

A Work-at-Home Profile


Business process outsourcing (BPO) for human resources services

Company Description:
Based in Roseland, NJ, this Fortune 500 company employs 57,000 people worldwide and is the largest provider of HR services, such as payroll, talent management, human resource management, benefits administration and time and attendance records, in North America, Europe, Latin America, and the Pacific Rim. In all, it provides services to companies in more than 125 countries.

Types of Work-at-Home Opportunities at ADP:
Employees in many fields at ADP work from home because, in general, the company is very supportive of telecommuting. (The company’s careers web page says “we support virtual meetings and actively encourage our associates to telecommute when possible.”) However, many companies that are telecommute friendly for their existing employees do not necessarily hire people to telecommute; it’s a perk that comes later. ADP, though, hires many new employees to work from home offices, usually tied to a specific location.

Most of these jobs are in the United States but it does have some in Europe, Latin America and other places. The types of jobs include:

  • Sales
  • IT
  • Human resources
  • Management

Sales jobs seem to be the most prevalent of the "Home Office" positions. For more home-based sales jobs see this list of work-at-home sales jobs.

Requirements or Qualifications for ADP Jobs:
The requirements for jobs at ADP will vary widely by position type.

However, for the most part these jobs require a college degree and likely experience. If you are looking for jobs that only require a high school diploma, see these work-at-home opportunities for high school grads.

Pay and Benefits:
Just as requirements will be job-specific so will salary. However, ADP's benefits, which begin on the first day of employment, are across all employees (though they may vary by country).

ADP offers US employees medical, dental and vision insurance, FSA, 11 personal days and holidays, tuition reimbursement, scholarships, credit union and more.
