    Pre-employment screenings for DOT regulated drivers is still a challenge and doesn't take advantage of the online ordering options that HireRight can offer for other roles (though the DOT is equally to blame for this). HireRight really shines when we are screening individuals for roles not regulated by the DOT, or when we are using their batch upload option to process large numbers of requests at once (e.g. random drug screenings, Annual MVR pulls). In these areas, it has saved us a huge amount of time that would have otherwise been wasted on repetitive, administrative tasks.

    Overall I have been extremely pleased with the high level of service we have received from Paycom over the years. Questions are answered promptly and, if necessary, researched and responded to within hours. It is nice to have a vendor we can count on to be reliable to submit the necessary payroll taxes as well as track 401(k) contributions and limits, etc.

    Pros

    HireRight, LLC

    • We've never had an issue with integration, this seems to be working well. It's a strength because we can't afford time lost on IT issues.
    • It is nice that they have an online instant chat function, for when we need answers ASAP, so we can continue with the process and appease our customers
    • The background checks themselves are aesthetically pleasing, which makes it easier to review results.

    Paycom

    • Offers exceptional customer service with dedicated representatives who are very professional, responsive, knowledgeable, and courteous.
    • Received thorough personal instruction/training on the use of the online software program.

    Cons

    HireRight, LLC

    • Customer Service. They lack here. It takes too long to resolve issues, especially with your assigned account manager. I have to continue to ask for an update and sometimes, I do not get a response back.
    • Back Up Account Managers - The account manager you are assigned may not be available. We need to be provided a list of people we can contact in the event that our POC in unavailable.

    Paycom

    • Would like to see more options when creating a custom report.
    • Clocking in 1 minute after the start of a schedule, takes away half an hour from the employee. We are consistently pushing the clock back one minutes so that employees don't lose that half hour. This only happens on our morning shift; not our Swing Shift.
    • On anniversary dates the system changes the vacation accrual but does not enter the additional lump sum of 40 hours vacation to the employee's account. We go in and enter the lump sum manually.
    • It is difficult to reprogram our time clock bells. Over time, the bell rings 1 or 2 minutes earlier than the actual time.

        We've made the mistake of moving away from Paycom to a PEO which had made a lot of promises, that they could not keep. Less than a year after that transition, we returned to Paycom and are happier than ever.

        The system is very user friendly. Once you navigate where your information is stored under the forms you are golden. While the training amplified my capabilities and knowledge, I could have jumped into the system without and training and managed just fine. This probably one of my favorite parts about Paycom!

        There are various ways you are able to call HireRight. They do have busy times and so the live chat is helpful because you are able to leave the chat open until an agent is available (and do work than being tied to a phone).

        Not at all satisfied it was a nightmare we spent over 8 months with the implementation team having issues after issues all related to the Puerto Rico regulations (half my employees are in Puerto Rico) and at the end we were moved over from the implementation team to the production team without all the issues being resolved

        We have used 2 or 3 other background check companies and I like HireRight because they are the easiest to get in touch with someone when any help is needed. The website is user friendly and you can easily check what is pending, what is completed, etc., across users. They are also much faster than the previous companies we worked with.

        I've used other products like ADP in other jobs and Paycom is more user friendly, more secure and I don't have to use multiple logins to access and approve my data. Paycom is better from my POV. I remember when using ADP that I had a login for my payroll and a different login for benefits (with a different company, which didn't make sense to me). I felt like accessing my info via ADP was clunky and not as seamless and user-friendly as I have with Paycom

        • HireRight is a Pay as You Go platform, so there are no long-term contracts to worry about. We customized our template for the information we consistently need and fill in the demographics. I would say that the ROI is 100% - we have been able to vet out the less desirable candidates based on some of the information.

        • As a department of time, the ease of the reports saves time to concentrate on other areas of HR.
        • The onboarding process has cut the former manual process by 50%
        • The Check Approval feature ensures that payroll information is correct and no adjustments need to be made after the employee is paid.
