Pros

My overall experience with APS has been outstanding, will always recommend them to anyone.

FW

FELISHA W.

The recruiting/hire feature has saved me hours of work in relation to on-boarding. It's been amazing to have the seamless transfer of employee data into payroll.

FS

Felicia S.

Being able to combine payroll AND HR online is amazing. I love the reporting options I have and that I can still run payroll in house but have APS handle the taxes so they are done correctly.

RC

Robin C.

Pros

I loved that the platform has a directory that is separated by department. It's super easy to check my paystub as well.

The software is easy to use for members who need help in where to start. Building the employees in the system was easy and the help desk is always there to help.

Cons

The only thing I dislike was the initial integration. I misunderstood what APS would do, and thought we were hiring someone to actually process our weekly payroll.

And we dislike that you have to use the drop down when correcting time sheets instead just being able to type in the correct time.

Comments are necessary if a punch is missed: for example, if an employee forgot to clock in from lunch, they would have to enter the comment "missed clock in after lunch 12:15" before they clock out.

Cons

Customer Support-after informing the Justworks team that I attempted to change my address to a new state, they denied that I did and said that there was no proof that I attempted to do so.

The only weird feature that I've experienced is their Time Off calculations. The system doesn't include your future time-off days in its calculation of how many days you have left to take off.

I've had to follow up with our account manager on different issues and once actually insisted on getting a new rep due to a series problem they created for us.

Tried this system , but turned out to be more expensive than our budget allowed

Reviewed 2 years ago

A lot of the services that are included in the plans were not things that our team was seeking, which made the items we did have interest in too expensive.

Pros

I liked that they offered benefits for our employees, like insurance and 401k. The payroll option was nice as well, but we were running payroll with Quickbooks already.

Cons

It was priced per employee, which made it fairly expensive. Many of the features were ones we didn't really need, such as HR services, so it ended up not making sense for our team to keep this system.

The absolute best Payroll/HR platform I've ever seen.

Reviewed 3 years ago

Justworks is the backbone of our HR and payroll system.

Pros

Justworks is fantastic. All of my payroll, insurance, retirement, and benefits information is all in a single account. It's fast, easy-to-use, and superbly organized. Compared to other solutions I've used, Justworks is mythically good. One thing in particular that I love about Justworks is the design. The iconography, the font choice, the UX, everything is exactly the way you think it should be.

Cons

I really don't have anything to say against Justworks. It's so intuitive, and the design is wonderful. I have no complaints.

unpleasant experience

Terrible experience. This company is growing to quickly and doesn't have experienced staff. They are not clear in their communication, multiple times telling us one thing and delivering another. We have been onboard Since Jan 1 and will be canceling. No amount of health care discount is worth the hassle.

Pros

solid software. Easy to use. Clearly the only advantage they have one their competitors.

Cons

calendars are not updated enough in advance so you know when non-payroll items are deducted from your account.

All is well until it is not

Reviewed 2 years ago

Twice the state has called me because things were not filed correctly with them. First they were lacking to information for our Worker's Comp coverage, then it was because they didn't have a record of our Disability and Paid Family Leave Insurance. There was also a discrepancy between the amount JustWorks had invoiced us, and the amount withdrawn from our bank account. I was told that it was probably related to the Paid Family Leave Insurance. The support team has told me that these problems are very rare, but in my experience they seem common. The reasons we joined JustWorks were ensure our payroll was handled correctly, that we were compliant with all state and federal regulations and to get better health care coverage.

Pros

better insurance rates handles payroll is supposed to handle all state and federal regulations

Cons

The Help and Support are useless, they direct me to unrelated articles I get too many emails - it is hard to determine when I need to act or when it is spam in disguise.

Tax Mishap

Reviewed 2 years ago

Initially I had a great experience, until I ran into this tax and address issue. Since then its been below average and I'm not sure I would choose to use the software again if given the option.

Pros

Seemed easy to use and easy to change your information for tax and payroll purposes.

Cons

1) Customer Support-after informing the Justworks team that I attempted to change my address to a new state, they denied that I did and said that there was no proof that I attempted to do so. Because of this, they continued to take out the wrong state income tax for nearly 5 months and I wound up owing a great deal of money because of the mistake. I offered to have them meet me in the middle with a credit to alleviate the situation and they refused. Overall, horrible experience and a true lack of understanding and compassion for a customer.

Justworks Platform

Reviewed 3 years ago

The breakdown of all fees and taxes is very transparent in the system which allows me to produce accurate reports for the management with minimal effort. Great customer service allows to solve issues and get my questions answered without any wait time.

Pros

The software is very easy to use, the screens are very intuitive and user-friendly. The information presented in a very clean and efficient form, screens are easy to navigate and understand. The platform offers a variety of services from payroll management, payroll compliance, training, HR tools, and benefit coverage at a very competitive price.

Cons

There are some reporting that has not been fully developed yet. It is definitely not a show stopper but a very nice and convent feature to have. Since I am a system administrator and act as a VP of Finance for the company I work for, collecting data for reporting purposes is not readily available and requires massaging data.
