7Shifts is ideal for a broad number of restaurant clients, whether it is a single unit, independent location or multi-unit, multi-jurisdiction group like ours. Pricing is very reasonable, and as mentioned earlier, a lightweight and intuitive platform makes it easy to implement and maintain, and scalable for growth

I think Paylocity is very useful in many areas. Onboarding makes it very easy to create event packets with the necessary documents a new hire needs and uploads all of them to their file once they are completed. The Recruiting platform is streamlined and a great tool to view all the candidates and move them along the line depending on their fit with open positions. I think Paylocity can be used for almost all facets of HR and I think the only place is may not be my first go to is when wanting to create recognition for team members. We use a separate platform that has many feature Paylocity simply does not have available. I rarely find a situation, though, where Paylocity does not have a solution to HRIS need.
Read full review Pros Staff can easily access fellow team members' contact info (phone & email). Staff can easily enter availability or time off. Managers have a log book to share issues or updates from the days’ shift so quick action can be completed easily if needed. Being able to communicate with managers only, with a specific department, or with the entire staff easily is very helpful. Read full review Paid Time Off requests. Everything is available in the app so employees can see their balances, request time, and get a notification about their manager's decision all in real time. Paycheck visibility-- Employees can see their detailed paychecks from the app and they're notified when they're accessible. Employees love this transparency. Benefits administration-- Employees can enroll and view their benefit elections right on the app. Read full review Cons When creating schedules I wish there was a way to remember the last schedule you were on instead of ordering them in alphabetical order. When working on a schedule, again when you revisit it, it alphabetizes the employees instead of keeping them in the order you add them. This is pertinent for our business because we're reservation-based and work off of a rotating schedule where the lowest ones are called off if there are not enough reservations. Read full review I wish there was a way to customize the categories in the skills section to better fit our industry. We make the categories we currently have work, but it would be amazing to actually customize them. For example, it would be nice to have a "Medical" option to hold all our employee's immunization records. The workflows section has been a lifesaver, but there are still some areas that have glitches that need to be improved on. For example, if you launch a workflow that isn't completed within the timeframe set, it goes overdue, and if it's still not completed, it'll actually go into the completed section, and the only way to find it is to look at the actual workflow, if you have the ability to rescind the workflow, then you automatically know that the workflow is incomplete. Community - It would be nice if comments were added to a post; everyone within the group who received the original announcement would also receive notifications that a comment was made. It would make it easier to communicate back and forth as well as keep the rest of the group up to date on any questions that were answered that someone else may have been thinking of but didn't ask.

I give a rating of 10 because the transition was flawless, at each step of the way we had a dedicated Paylocity rep helping us during the transition. This gave us peace of mind as we switched over from another payroll provider so we weren't familiar with Paylocity. The transition was smooth

I've been able to navigate everything on my own and I've been able to figure out almost all of it by myself. I like hands on experience so I only rely on service if I've exhausted all resources to figure something out.

there are frequent issues with the recruiting module not fully working and there is no rush from paylocity to fix it

pages load in an acceptable amount of time, reports come back quickly, but integration is very complicated and hasn't been possible

I would say everyone at our store really appreciates the fact that we have 7shifts. We would be lost with out it. It would be hard to find anyone that does not support the software.

The nicest thing I can say about Paylocity's support is I run into the same support issues with every payroll company. Paylocity's support is no better or worse. With high turnover rates and employees being stretched across multiple company's it is hard to get good responses. I can usually get responses back to simple questions quickly but when you get to intermediate to difficult questions the support is lacking.

The training was live online, but was with a group of other companies. We did not receive any personalized training with our team. Whenever we would ask for training, we would be sent a peak article link or a video. It felt like the reps we dealt with didn't know the answer to the questions.
Read full review Implementation Rating
I would make sure you have a dedicated team at Paylocity to complete the implementation. We had staff from Paylocity quit and things were not completed properly. They dropped the ball so to speak on that portion of it. we have encountered multiple issues since then and are still not using the Time off tracking to its full capabilities.

For me, 7Shifts has the same amount of functionality, but for a much better price. The app functionality of 7shifts was easier to navigate and allowed me to do more than
. I've recommended it to several other local businesses who have implemented it as well and had great luck.

I think payroll processing in Paylocity is much simpler than with either ADP or Paychex. Having the pre-process view and the ability to make corrections easily makes processing payroll much more straightforward than with either of the other products I have worked with. The time and labor module also flows better to HR&PR w/ paylocity. I have not used benefits integration or Cobra management w/ either of the other products, but I do appreciate it w/ Paylocity and the EDI file flows so that we can add/delete people from benefits with ease.

Read full review Return on Investment Positive: Less call outs/ and missed communication due to internal conversations that were never communicated. For example, employees tell manager A they are not coming but Manager A does not tell manage B and C. Positive: Manager log book has helped multiple departments stay in touch and on the pulse of the floor operation. Departments like HR, events, reservations, AP/ AR, etc. are not empowered to be more proactive Labor and sales are tracked and can be forecasted which has helps us schedule SMARTER Read full review We have had reduced errors on timekeeping and therefore a more accurate payroll. Reports such as turnover, etc, are easy to create and review and have helped to identify some management issues. We spend a lot less time reviewing and approving time off requests.
