Main use as an HRIs system. We would also upload documents to have employees digitally authorize, which was a great feature. When we upgraded the benefits module it made open enrollment significantly to manage. Reporting and analytics worked well and was helpful to gather information quickly.

We use Paycor to keep track of hours worked for our hourly employees. We also use it to keep track of what department our employees are clocking into. We also use it to keep track of certificates and training that our employees have to complete. We also use the reporting aspect of Paycor almost every day. Paycor is a very useful resource when you need to keep track of items.

We use Paycor as our main HRIS. It takes input from a separate time and attendance system for hourly employees and handles the payroll, taxes, and leaves for all hourly and salary employees. We also use it to manage benefits, life-change events, training, and certifications. This has helped us end a few applications that would previously handle training and certification as well as life-change events. We have also been able to reduce papers being sent to employees for various changes as well as speed up leave approvals.

We use Paycor primarily for payroll processing. Paycor is much easier to use and navigate through than our previous payroll company. I highly recommend adding the Paycor Time module to payroll services.

We have also used and been happy with the Recruiting module; being able to push our job openings onto several job boards saves time and has brought several applicants to our organization.

Paycor is the breath of fresh air you were searching for! We went from struggling to process payroll every two weeks with constant errors and taking up over 4 hours of our time using ADP to being able to review and process payroll in under 1 hour with rarely any errors. Do you know how much of a big deal that is? We have been able to focus on other aspects of HR versus spending a minimum of 10 hours a week just making payroll corrections. Our books are even cleaner, allowing for smoother audits and tracing of money. Beyond the payroll aspect, Paycor has a very easy to use interface that makes it easy for all employees to navigate both on a PC or within the app. Employees have more control over what they can do on their own and when they can do it. It also relieves HR of tedious tasks like address changes.

You paid for what you get. Paycor is relatively cheaper than its competitors however the apps and the products are not good at all I believe. In my experience, the website is down more than I can remember (almost every twice per month). It takes very long to load I've found. The information is not streamlined well between different interfaces I've found. In my experience employees have trouble punching in and out all the time. I've found frustration is very high every time we use Paycor. Customer service is very good however, waiting line is sometimes more than 45 mins and your call got drop suddenly. I hate to say this but Paycor will soon loose our company as their customer if thing are not improving.

My company uses Paycor for onboarding, personnel management, HR functions, and payroll. We recently began using the Learning Management System. The use of Paycor has greatly streamlined internal processes and even automated some previously manual processes. We continue to find new ways to use Paycor both when they release updates, such as the recent vaccine management feature for the employee health and safety realm.

I use Paycor to administer benefits, PTO, time and attendance, and process payroll. I also use their reporting for all of these functions. One of the biggest hurdles we face with Paycor is that for some of our groups the time feature doesn't include everything we need to properly record time-based on our CBA and makes importing to the perform payroll side difficult or impossible. There is a lot of outside managing to do. On the benefits side, I don't think we got a proper understanding of Benefits Advisor when transitioning to our new platform, and the customer service portion kept giving conflicting responses when I would call in with problems.

Paycor was initially brought on board for payroll processing. The company added onboarding since there was no one in HR and there was just one payroll person. HR came on to the scene in 2019. We added Benefits Advisor in 2021. Paycor was initially selected because they had geo-fencing for time card punches and it seemed to provide everything the company needed.

My company uses Paycor for payroll processing, benefits administration, onboarding, and reporting, we are looking to add on the talent/recognition function. I was involved with the implementation from ADP to Paycor about 3 years ago. While I am not currently the main user of the software, our HR Administrator has/is experiencing hiccups with the implementation and use of the new Benefits Advisor rolled out this year. There are also a few lingering issues we continue to experience with Time on Demand but were told we would have to continue using this as our Time and Attendance software due to the complexity of our time-clocking/hour codes. I will also mention that during the demo, the sales rep talked very highly about Paycor's reporting function, but I have found it to be just ok. There have been quite a few times where I had to call in for a report that someone from Paycor was only able to customize/modify, and we were not able to do it ourselves.

We implemented Paycor about two and a half years ago and it has made my work easier to manage. I love the flexibility of the system. Previously all of our employee information was in multiple systems and now we have it in one. I appreciate that Paycor takes user feedback to continue to build a stronger product.

We use Paycor for several things. We are using it for our time cards, approvals, PTO, employee management, etc. We also use the payroll features. There is a very nice feature where employees can enter, and split up, their direct deposits between different bank accounts and HSA accounts. We also use Paycor for job postings and document storage. It is pretty much our total HR Platform.

I was a former user of the Nimble Schedule, which then was bought out and became Ximble Schedule, which was then bought out by Paycor. I started my own business and decided to give Paycor a try as they operated Ximble. My first experience was the lack of communication with this company. They divide out your progression for onboarding with their company to several departments with numerous other people. Response time is slow at best and the ability to reach out to supervisors when the "specialist" fails to return calls or emails is impossible. Many employees here might be decent, but our experience was and still is a terrible one. Our system still does not function properly, yet we are still being billed for a full and working product. I have expressed my frustration numerous times only to be given lip service about how they are working on it, and thank you for being patient, but then it never gets fixed. Their phone number for assistance shuts down at 8 pm eastern time, so if you experience problems with their software, which you will, you will be left out on your own to try to fix the issue until they reopen the next day. Unfortunately, I have been met with more "I don't know" and "I'll send this to our team to review" when calling in with issues and problems. I have several unresolved problems and it seems absolutely no one knows what they are doing. It's very obvious they have no employee oversight, they have lazy or uninformed employees, and most management itself is as inept as the employee who has no idea how to do their job. I recommend HIGHLY you STAY AWAY from PAYCOR. Our company still has employees who cannot even use their system to clock in after starting the process to join their company almost 3 months ago! This is unacceptable and the problems keep coming up almost weekly. I am still waiting on an email response from a month ago, then gave up, and figured out how to fix the problem myself. The company still has not responded even after follow-up emails and has no idea how to fix the technical issue with their own software. There is no urgency to help you as a client and the employees are not very knowledgeable. You will be passed around to several different people when calling in until you reach that one person that seemingly does know a little, but they do not have the access or permission to fully work on your account, they then try to reach their "team", but they aren't answering the phone and your problem hits a dead end. This is because these employees appear to all be working from home, so when they don't feel like answering their calls, they just don't. This was my experience in numerous attempts to resolve problems. It took a month of requests before I even had a supervisor call me back. They do not provide contact information for anyone and most people do not know the other employees or their supervisors, so when you do have problems, most employees don't even know who to refer you to. We are leaving Paycor as soon as our new company sets up our account which will take 8-12 weeks. I have no problem admitting I am leaving for ADP. They have a much better onboarding system, payroll system, customer service, as well as actual help when you need it. Not to mention, they actually came down in price to beat Paycor and give us a better deal. You just have to ask and they can do that. Please do not use this company, it is a dumpster fire of problems with seemingly no one around to fix it.

We utilize Paycor for HR services, onboarding and time and attendance. It works very well from a user standpoint. Having previously used ADP, I really don't see a plus or minus between the 2 systems. It is user friendly for all the basic functions that I utilize. Easy to view paystubs and Paid time off information.

The main focus was to schedule the campaign agents into their work times. There was also a payment-related use, but that's not in my scope of knowledge. However, I was told that it worked great for the payroll staff. As for my daily use, Paycor has been a wonder in managing my workforce.

Paycor is both our HRIS and Payroll system. We have demoed other modules, but none align with our needs or budget. Admittedly, one of the reasons we chose Paycor is because we needed a 360-degree integration with our 401k system, and at the time there were few options. We switched from Paylocity which is a similar product. Other features we were looking for were robust reporting options, a good user experience, and a potential to add other modules as our company grew, like an ATS or benefits platform.

We use Paycor for our HRIS and Payroll systems. It has helped to reduce the time to hire with its Applicant Tracking System and made payroll and onboarding much faster. It also provided tremendous cost savings over ADP. We were also able to eliminate our online time clock system for hourly employees by using Paycor's Time System.
