Companies can't remove reviews or game the system. Here's why

Paycom is well suited to any company, no matter the size. We are a small nonprofit, with only 7 employees and a few contractors. However, we feel that we are treated just as well as a company with 500 employees. We need Paycom's expertise with payroll and taxes, but we can't afford to pay a lot for it. Paycom makes it very affordable for small companies to receive their payroll/tax expertise.

The main thing that caused us to choose Paycom was their customer service. We have an assigned customer service representative for our account. This is very comforting to know that we have a consistent and reliable person who will be there to answer any questions or handle any problems that arise.

The Paycom system has tremendous capabilities. There are many functions that can be added if a company has a need to utilize that component. The system will work well for small companies to large companies and can be customized to meet the company's needs.

Paycom has adjusted well to the needs of parks and recreation by offering multiple job codes and cascading labor allocations. Paycom is well suited for those on the go with the Manager On-The-Go app. Cannot really think of an industry where Paycom would not be suited for.

The payroll system is easy to use and generates great reports. It would be nice to automatically include the primary supervisor and timesheet set up when adding new employees. Customer Representatives are fantastic!

Paycom is well suited for people who have little experience with HR and Payroll functionality because it simplifies what is needed. Not only that, but Paycom seems to have a representative or technology that can catch errors and will send out regular reminders or warnings when it appears something may be either missing or incorrect.

Paycom is an excellent choice for those wanting a full service HRIS/payroll system. It has saved us money by reducing the amount of copying, and time saved making those copies. Excellent reporting tools to create your own custom reports. I can't think of anything less appropriate to say.

Paycom is a comprehensive HRIS solution. Of course, implementation requires a detailed understanding of Paycom's operations, but the Paycom implementation and data migration team are very knowledgeable and supportive.

Helpful HR solution!

Score 8 out of 10

It's great for administering an easy payroll and expense reimbursement process. It's helpful in keeping records of pay and employee data. COBRA administration is very easy and efficient. We use their benefits administration, to keep things aligned, however, it has taken a few years for it to fully offer what is needed for proper benefit administration and enrollment processes. While their application processing module is robust, the process for creating, posting, and filling positions is a little confusing and not intuitive. Creating applications and updating them is not seamless and causes a lot of headaches.

Paycom is great for companies with smaller internal staffing counts, i.e. - if you need a few people to maintain a lot of records. It's great for maintaining said records to the employee files and always available in case of an audit - their information never goes into an archive state. You can also set scheduled reports to generate and the reports are very dynamic in the information they can pull. When you start getting into the larger workforce count, the system has noticeable slowness that increases in proportion. This seemed to hit has we were getting closer to 1500-1600 employees, and payroll can take an upwards of 45 minutes to an hour just to initially load.

I am very pleased with Paycom. They are easy to communicate with you. They don't get irritated if you have multiple easy questions or issues. The only recent issue i had was they were TOO PROMPT. I submitted a payroll transaction and needed to recall it. Within 5 minutes they had already processed it making the process a little more challenging. But they worked with me and it was done.

We are in California, and our laws are very different than federal or many other states. We have struggled a bit regarding this, but most recently have been given a payroll specialist that works only with CA clients, so we are hoping this will improve. I don't like the specialist's change so often.

Highly recommend. Paycom is awesome for companies that have hourly employees that need to clock in and out and need an app. Paycom is awesome for companies that are smaller and want to own payroll. Paycom files all of our taxes and provides tax documents at the end of the year. Need a wide range of reports? Create your own reports. Paycom is awesome! Paycom is easy to use for end-user and administrators. Easy setup; I didn't have to do much on my end. They did it all.

I believe our specialist, Jeff Wade, is an amazing representative of the company. He has helped me, and others in my company, understand the software. The combination of his assistance and knowledge and the ease of use of the software is what drives my opinion.

Hard work but worth it

I think the setup for labor allocation works great for us but to have the ability to only show specific labor allocation/cost centers to a location would be great. Right now with our trucking company, every route we run is a labor allocation. I can enter a "lock" to show the employees under that location its specific labor allocation/cost centers. Here is where the problem comes in: we have so many drivers that cross locations and with the "lock" on specific location/cost centers, they cannot change from their home department or another department. Even as an administrator, I can't change this. I would love to be able to override anything in time and attendance as an administrator.

Paycom is amazing. It does so much it is hard to begin to explain all that it can do, but once you start, it is hard to stop. From applicant tracking, where you post a job online, and you automatically hire the person and don't have to re-enter information. All information is shared with payroll, time and attendance, and HR. Onboarding is a breeze. Paperless became a reality. On-stop shop. Training and compliance in one place.
