Being a small business, we can often get lost in the shuffle. At my last company that I ran for 21 years, we used a different vendor that had a local office. I actually got to meet my rep, and they took care of us very well, but that was a much larger company. I tried using them when I started this (much smaller) company, and even though I'm in Nashville Tennessee, they assigned me to a rep in Indianapolis. That person wouldn't respond to my calls or emails, because apparently, they had far too many customers to care about a tiny guy like me. When I switched to Paycor, it was like day and night. They treated me very well and respected my wishes and needs. I haven't had a problem in 3 years using Paycor, and they just "work." Everything just happens like clockwork, and that is very refreshing when you're a stressed-out small business operator like me.

Payroll in Paycor

Paycor is a very efficient payroll processor, and the HR products are becoming stronger platforms than my initial experience. It does still seem as though Paycor is much more suited for small-to-medium sized organizations and not large at this time. Perhaps when the customer service model is stronger.

I can't think of a scenario where PayCor would not be the right decision. If you have to manage payroll, it is a great platform. Customer service is great, the platform is customizable, and it is user friendly. The add-ons are icing on the cake. Recruiting is a great module and implementing Benefits was a great experience. The employees are engaged in the use of the software and the [supervisors] find it easy to use too.

Paycor works great at the small and medium sized business level for sure. The backend management is easy, intuitive, and clear. For example, changing or correcting punch times, adding in sick time/personal time, checking accumulated leave hours, all of these functions are easy to find and utilize even for a first time user.

Our employees are hourly, not salary, and their weekly schedule changes from time to time. While Paycor offers a scheduling module I don't think it's built to handle schedules that change often. Otherwise, when it comes to payroll and time management (e.g. punch clock) the application does fairly well.

The reporting and analytics functions are very valuable for our company. It allows us to pull data we need to make business decisions. The payroll module is also very valuable. We are able to process our payrolls with a minimum amount of time. Learning management module has a lot of courses, but they are not bilingual which is very important to us.

We have been with Paycor for a little over a year and went from a very manual payroll and HR process to a very automated one with Paycor. All platforms seem to mesh very well and make everything very quick and sleek.

Paycor is great for small and medium-sized businesses that have grown to a point where they would like to manage payroll and HR internally. It helps make the transition easy. They have great customer support and onboarding to make the transition smooth.

The payroll system, HRIS System, timekeeping, and applicant tracking [are] great. These products have saved me so much time and we have much better [recording] keeping with applicants now. I really enjoy using Paycor for these things. The parts I have problems with are as follows. Customer service is not set up the way I like it. You must call in or e-mail. If you e-mail sometimes, you won’t get a response for a week. When you call in, there is a large phone maze to navigate to find someone to help with your specific problem. Some days you can wait for multiple hours on hold for someone to pick up your call. The benefits system has been terrible. It is a third-party system that they bought and integrated. However, Implementation did not go well for us. The reports that we are supposed to be able to pull for the information we need doesn't work right. It leaves out different columns each time we run it. We were told that a ticket was sent to IT to figure it out, but it has not been resolved yet and that was in December of 2020. We were better off doing it by hand.

As I stated, the mobile app is nice but it does not allow the user to modify or change many different areas. It does not allow for the user to change things for banking such as routing or checking. It does not allow you to update personal information. It states everything needs to be change via the person who set up for the paycor.

Paycor maybe was a decent software back in the day, but for 2021, it seems outdated and stodgy. Also, my main issue with them is the fact that I've been fined by multiple states because Paycor remitted our payroll taxes late. It's very difficult to see who is off on PTO if they are not on your team. Also, it's difficult to create reports unless explicitly trained on it (not intuitive).

It appears to be really good for employees to use, with some exceptions: the app can be buggy, especially when trying to clock in/out (punches are not always registered) and I frequently have to type in my password vice using the biometric feature of my iPhone. One area it could really improve on is simplicity for those that are not "tech-savvy"; we have several people who are not great with computers and have challenges with accomplishing some tasks in the app or the website.

In a smaller company I think Paycor is a great fit. As the company's reporting needs grow I think Paycor will present a problem. Additionally, any company using Paycor needs to have a software-savvy user on the team, as their customer service was often not helpful. A lot of the setup and management still needed to be completed by the in house team.

Navigating the Paycor sight is relatively simple and sections of information are clearly identified. Employees noted that leave requests were easy to find and leave balances were easy to view. Most days, it was extremely difficult to contact customer service and updates to user accounts took weeks/months to be reflected on the user side. Paying the Paycor invoices was difficult prior to ACH setup. Invoices were hard to view and required random approvals to pay.

Being that I haven't utilized other options in this space I can't say I'd 100% recommend it over other options. It has functioned well for our needs from my stand point, but if someone else had something they love I'd be hesitant to push them to switching to Paycor over that.

I only have experience with a few modules that Paycor offers, but I do think what I've tried works very well for my use case. It is very easy to track my time daily. I most often track my time using the mobile app. The mobile app is great for simple things like tracking time or requesting time off but isn't always robust enough to do more complex tasks, which you can use the web application for.
