Employees haven't used these features much yet. They were used to receiving paper pay stubs every other week, and moving to getting that information from the app has been a big change.

  • Onboarding is easier. We have less physical paper.
  • Performance tracking, particularly the journal function, is really helpful to document discussions with employees.
  • Employees are able to transfer from their regular shift to one that pays a shift differential from the time clock, which means we don't have to manually manipulate their pay rate on their time clock entries within Paylocity.

  • On Demand Pay is a great service to retain or attract employees
  • Trying to get state tax forms updated for new version has been troublesome
  • Reports formatting (merged) or downloading to excel in text format. Need to reformat before data can be used in formulas.
  • Time & Labor reporting format is horrible. Extra columns and titles do not line up with correct columns (Non work hours, time cards)

  • We thought it would help with productivity in payroll specifically, but it has been nothing but problems and spending time on the phone to try and get stuff fixed
  • Benefits has been a nightmare for all three years that we have had it.
