I went through the hiring process with ADP right before graduating from college in May. They gave me a verbal offer and, even in an email, said that they were going to extend me an official offer the second that they could. Does anyone have any updates on the hiring freeze? I saw another commenter mention receiving an offer a couple of days ago. I don't want to debate whether or not ADP is a good company to work for, I am just trying to get some information if anyone can help me out! :) Thanks!

For a second I thought this said: "ADP Firing Freeze". I sure read that wrong! LOL
More mass firings today!
Yes there was a hiring freeze. Also only jobs open were sales up to about a week ago. New jobs posted are saying hopefully Sept start date working from home and then in office at later date.
Thank you everybody! I haven't had any trouble staying in contact with recruiters and managers, so that has been pleasant. In addition, other people have been reaching out to stay connected so I haven't felt left out on that front, which is nice. I have also been interviewing at other things but in this climate, it's rough. Trying to stay on top of the status at ADP is a part of my process of trying to keep all of my bases covered and insure that I have all of the information that I need. Straight out of college, I am not expecting to have the world's best job, so don't worry about me being realistic. I am an older graduate and have already worked in the "real world" so I am not naive, thank goodness. I appreciate the input!
ADP is a very large company and so much going on with hiring/firing. So with all the shifting around, moving parts, furloughs, and layoffs going on - think of all that happening at one time and it's like a chess game. They have the cheaper hires pending while they let go someone of higher pay. So they make the person waiting in the wings think there is a freeze. When really it's all timing and when they can bring them on. And then don't forget they have internal people bidding on jobs. Wow, how do they keep this all straight. Umm, not very well apparently!
Why are they going ahead with the RIF when they're still adding new blood?
Simple: Money. Layoff your most expensive associates and bring on cheaper, hungrier, younger talent.
Not saying it's right, just answering the previous poster.
So why are they furloughing and laying off if they are hiring? That doesn’t seem fair?
There is not a hiring freeze. And there certainly is not a firing freeze. Be smart: look at better companies.
Likely you are not being responded to because of the really poor quality recruiters at ADP. Don't trust them to get anything right.
Is there contact information for your recruiter in the email? I might have missed you say it.... Are you having trouble reaching your recruiter?
When I first learned to drive, I bought a cheap old clunker. It was big and I felt safe while learning the road. Once I knew how to drive, and that didn't take long, I wanted something much more appealing. If you take the job with ADP fresh out of college, look at it as your cheap old clunker. Come, learn, build your resume a little and then move onto something with a little shine. The days of having a life long career at ADP are gone. Unless of course you prefer a short life based on the constant stress of wondering when, not if, you will lose your job.
No matter how this turns out, you have to look out for yourself first. Don't wait for ADP to respond and just move ahead with your plans as though you are not going to be offered the job. Interview at other places and accept the first decent offer that you get. If you don't get anything when and if ADP offers you the job, treat it as a pleasant surprise. Good luck.
I saw those too and brought it up to the people hiring me and they said that they constantly have rotating positions that they post for. They are interviewing still and I am sure other candidates have to wait too?
I don't think that there is a hiring freeze. If you look on indeed.com you will see open positions that ADP wants to fill.
