myStaffingPro is very easy to configure and setup and takes less than 2 business days to configure and get it up and running. It facilitates the HR Business Partners in their recruitment activities. For the Open Position in the Organization, with the use of the software, they can quickly shortlist the candidates with quick mix and match of the requirements. Interviews can be scheduled with the candidate. If a Candidate is selected, the proper background screening process is initiated and finally, the Onboarding process is also tightly integrated within the software.

Paylocity

Paylocity is simply the best payroll and tax reporting service I have ever used. In addition to these vital functions, it does a host of additional things with excellence including time and attendance reporting, 401(k) integration & automatic reporting, and benefits administration, all supported by a stellar customer service team

Pros

Paychex, Inc.

  • One strength of myStaffingPro is because of its heavy manual interface, there is a lot of detail and very specific reason codes. This is very useful for later reporting to get specific information on hires and rejects.
  • Also the ability to upload documents (CVs, resumes, phone screen notes, etc) is all located in a convenient place
  • The calendar function is good, there are stop measures to prevent double booking and the time zones are preset

Paylocity

  • Payroll is easy and well integrated with Time and Labor.
  • The support staff is exemplary; probably the best I have ever worked with.
  • Paylocity is proactive in addressing issues of law and the marketplace. They are constantly evolving to meet the current needs of its customers.

Cons

Paychex, Inc.

  • This product is not particularly easy to use because it is not intuitive.
  • It is difficult to generate accurate reports.
  • It is difficult to add notes and find particular requisitions.
  • Does not integrate well with our internal system in changes candidates to employees.
  • If a step in the hiring process is missed, it does not give any notifications.
Read full review

Paylocity

  • Payroll implementation was not planned. This should take plenty of time asking questions and understanding needs. Instead, huge misses created additional work, which four months later is still not complete and still causing issues.
  • Mid-payroll functionality is a must. Employees start, leave, have babies, get raises, etc., in the middle of the pay period. This is how a business must operate - especially in an environment where labor shortages are common - and your software needs to handle it.
  • Time off accrual and tracking are abysmal. This needs to be streamlined, be easier for employees to use, easier for managers to use and must actually calculate the correct amounts. Currently we have to hand-calculate vacation payouts every time an employee leaves because the system is never up to date (by design, for some reason).
  • Your service team cannot help with programming errors and implementation issues. Our implementation team is now ghosting us, so we have no useful support. Requests for help correcting errors seemingly go into a black hole.

Likelihood to Renew

Paychex, Inc.

If I were a decision maker, I would not choose to renew myStaffingPro because of the overly manual process and lost productivity. I've found other ATS's that have the same functionality but are more intuitive, user friendly and appealing. Getting a hold of customer service and support was difficult and they were rarely able to fix the immediate issue.

Paylocity

The transition from my old provider to Paylocity was virtually painless. I always felt well supported by my account rep. I would use Paylocity again, but I'm not in a position to change providers at my current company right now.

Usability

Paychex, Inc.

I have used a lot of applicant tracking systems in my career. I've always gone back to MSP saying that it's always been my favorite. It's easy to use, I've never worked with a system so easy to use. It's also easy to figure out if you don't know where something is located - you can typically figure it out on your own without having to ask anyone.

Paylocity

Although it is fairly easy to use, there are some processes that just don't make munch sense. For example, if an employee has 2 bank accounts and the funds are returned from one account the process to reissue is TEDIOUS and confusing. Unless you want to PAY for Paylocity to do it for you. I think the manual process should be as easy for us.

Reliability and Availability

They are good about scheduling maintenance during overnight periods. There have been a few server issues with the e-signature system over the weekends.

Support Rating

Paychex, Inc.

We recently had an issue where it was brought to our attention by a candidate that specializes in Information Assurance and Network Engineering that their site was missing a secure socket layer for entering in your ssn, which means that when entering it, your ssn is in plain text in plain site. It should hide it with dots or asterisks as you type it to make it secure like when you enter passwords online. I turned off the field that collects SSN's immediately and have been waiting for a response as to when this would be updated so I could turn it back on. I submitted this to our rep back in October 2013 and they said they would forward it to their IT team. I never received any further follow up as to whether or not they would be updating this. I sent a follow up email and left voice messages asking for a status update in Jan. 2014 with no response. I finally called again at the end of Feb. 2014 and emailed. The rep seemed put out that I was telling her I was frustrated with the lack of follow through and that I told her I needed a response on whether or not this would be resolved. She then forwarded me an email from the IT team that said they didn't think this was an actual requirement, they would look into it. Today she emailed to let me know the IT team will not be making any changes.

Whether or not the issue above is a DoD issue or not, the length of time to receive the final response was way too long and involved too much follow up on my part. The fact that they are unwilling to update the SSN field is also troublesome. Even if this is not an actual DoD violation or a mandate, it's a pretty common practice on most websites for collecting private information. Would you enter your PIN number into an ATM if it showed your PIN number until you hit enter? Identity theft is very high these days and people should feel like the company cares enough to help provide that extra layer of protection of their personal information.

This recent development has really changed my opinion of MyStaffingPro drastically since I last wrote my review

Paylocity

The frustrations I have with Paylocity customer support are what drove me to leave a review in the first place so I can warn anyone considering purchasing this product. I really like the software and it has a lot of great features, but my complete distrust of their customer service has led me to rue the day I chose Paylocity to be our payroll vendor. For one thing, they are often slow to respond. That alone might be manageable, except even when I do get a response, half the time the answers are incomplete/not helpful, if not completely incorrect! Imagine waiting 90 days and paying thousands of dollars for a corrected W2 only for it to come back more incorrect than it was when you started, and not only that but they also made me question my sanity trying to convince me that they were correct when it was BLATANTLY wrong - and that's just one example! Sometimes you might be lucky to get a decent customer service rep using the chat help feature, but most of the time whoever you talk to does not seem to have any more knowledge of the system than you do. I am a patient person and I have a lot of grace for administrative errors (we're all human) but Paylocity customer service is consistently unreliable and sometimes unprofessional to boot. To their credit, the sales and implementation teams do seem really good. It seems like maybe they just can't retain good customer service reps. We've been through several account managers without ever having a good experience.

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.

Alternatives Considered

Paychex, Inc.

We thought it would've been better than ADP, but it wasn't. Also, the sales person who sold us on Paychex promised that this and Paychex would be able to do a lot of things we needed, which turned out to be a lie when we were implementing it, and the MyStaffingPro expert told us it wasn't possible, and it never was. It wasn't as user friendly either.

Paylocity

I ran payroll for years through QuickBooks, both the desktop and the online version. QuickBooks is very user-friendly and works great for companies that are smaller in size. I would only use QuickBooks for a company that maybe has less than 25 people employed. Paylocity is a great tool for us because we are all over the US, in 6 of our different locations; it works great for everyone in our company. Each location is a different size, and since COVID, the majority of us here have been working at home only. I can confidently process payroll even with people all over versus just in one office. It is a very smooth process!

  • Positive - Went from tracking candidates to excel to having a proper tracking system to move candidates through the hiring process faster
  • Positive - Always working to improve current program to make it easier to use for recruiter, hiring managers, and candidates applying

Paylocity

  • Positive - saved HR 50% of its time due to streamlining Admin functions. Period.
  • Positive - saved managers at least 10% of their total time by reducing admin functions (they can manage people through phones)
  • Positive - reduced payroll FTE by 1.5 in first 3 months due to automation
