How Paycor Differs From Its Competitors

Time Savings with Paycor

Our HR and/or payroll team has saved time, but I'm not sure how much.
Anytime we need to know something about an employee we can easily look it up instead of searching through paper files to find out. Paycor makes the onboarding time faster, if the employee is responsible enough to follow up with it.

  • I do like their customer support. Friendly and knowledgeable.
  • Implementation was an extremely horrible process.
  • Implementation was inaccurate and caused many employees not to get paid on time the first payroll.
  • Implementation took too long to import our employee data and we had to postpone the project.
  • Implementation refuses to fix their errors or take accountability for their errors.

  • Manage payroll with various union rules, in different tax situations, and various other rules unique to our business
  • Increase leave management accuracy while maintaining various approvers
  • Reduce the need for paper and standardize documents for onboarding, life changes, and other updates
  • Increasing the ability to connect via an API would be beneficial. The exporting or reporting within Paycor is relatively basic. Although most needs are met from looking at the dashboard we do have some BI and other reporting needs that have gone unmet
  • Better manage different leave workflows, we have some rules where it is not a direct one-to-one relationship with an approver that couldn't be handled within Paycor effectively

  • Payroll Time is easy for employees and managers to use.
  • Recruiting module saves time by pushing our job openings to several job board sites at once.
  • Payroll processing is very user-friendly.
  • Reporting module is clunky and not intuitive.
  • Onboarding module did not integrate as expected.

  • Payroll- easy to view the pay grid, make edits, and even make notes on paystubs. There are quick reports and graphs to double-check everything.
  • Interface- employees can do so much on their own! Paycor is so easy to navigate and explain to new employees.
  • Customer Service- I can talk to a real person within 5 minutes!! Or I can even chat with a real person online and not even talk on the phone. And my problems get resolved. No unknown answers they can't figure out.
  • Reviews- While we love using the reviews within Paycor, there are areas for improvement in how the reviews themselves are actually built and managed. Nothing we can't work around. It just would be nice to have the ability to build sections one time and pull them into a template versus having to manually build the same pieces over and over again. For example, we put core values on all reviews. They are the same for every template, and currently, the only way to add them is manually into each template. If we change one word, we have to change that word on every individual template. Just time-consuming.

  • Easy payroll processing.
  • Onboarding is easy for new employees.
  • Reporting is fairly easy to learn on your own.
  • The help/knowledge database and training videos are very helpful and detailed.
  • Anyone we've spoken to at the company was helpful and friendly.
  • It would be nice to get geofencing back without manually adding it to each payroll/employee.
  • Transferring between payrolls could be easier.
  • It would be nice to have a dedicated customer support person rather than taking our chances on whoever answers the phone.

  • Onboarding wizard is quick and easy to use for employer and employee
  • Some new functions in Benefits Advisor are great, the employee can initiate their own event and requires less oversight/follow-up from the employer
  • Ease of use/look and feel on the Perform side is great
  • Time on Demand - the function to request time off, allows employees to request 8 hours for 5 days off. It should populate the number of hours based on the number of days.
  • Manager view of Time on Demand and managing time cards - the page with the collapsible menus and boxes can get very confusing for a new user.

  • Paycor does nothing well except invoice us every month for things we can't use.
  • I have hourly non-exempt employees that work overnight. Paycor is the absolute WORST in time tracking for these employees. Their supervisors and I are constantly having to adjust time cards to keep time from pulling from one pay period to the next. This is an absolute NIGHTMARE!! The only thing Paycor does is to make excuses with no valid fix, I've been dealing with this for 2 years. I have had employees miss getting paid for an entire day because their time was pulled to the previous pay period not only messing up the current time card but past ones as well. We receive grant funding from the Federal Government, our time cards have to match pay stubs or we don't get reimbursed, this is of NO concern to Paycor. (They're getting paid!)
  • Reports constantly error out, again no urgency on Paycor response.
  • Emails requesting support are taking weeks to get a response. When you call you can be on hold for more than an hour, and only to get someone who has no idea how to fix anything.
  • With COVID19 many of our vendors picked up their support and customer service, not Paycor - they reduced their staff making it impossible to get issues resolved. Way to go, Paycor!
