Work from Home Jobs: Automatic Data Processing (ADP)

Not all its jobs offer telecommute options


Based in Roseland, NJ, this Fortune 500 company has offices worldwide and is the largest provider of human resources 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.

Not all of ADP's jobs have telecommuting options, and most of its open jobs don't offer this perk to new hires. But if you're interested in a long-term position with a global company with a future option of working from home, ADP may be a good choice. It's regularly listed among the top 10 companies for working from home. 

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.”)

As mentioned above, like many companies that are telecommute-friendly for existing employees, ADP does not necessarily hire people to telecommute; it’s a perk that comes later. ADP, though, hires some new employees to work from home offices, usually tied to a specific location. This is fairly common among companies that offer work-from-home or remote positions; it makes taxes and payroll issues easier to manage.

Most of ADP's telecommute 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. 

Requirements or Qualifications for ADP Jobs

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.
