Pros

Its super simple to use and easy to get around to the information i'm looking for. I really like the fun things they send when you get paid.
We use it for payroll and benefits and its simple and effective. The customer service is also great as they are "human" because they actually listen and answer questions.
Not only do they make it easy to use the platform, the dashboard and overall experience with their tool is pleasant and truly great.

Pros

Best option for the price- I have looked all over and Paycor was by far the most affordable. I wanted as simple as possible and this was perfect.
Overall I think it is a great business solution and time saver. The information captured and stored is very helpful for reporting and I am able to instantly generate useful information.
I like having the ability to customize reports, this saves me a lot of time. I also like the ease of the software and the great customer service Paycor provides.

Cons

Tax calculations and deductions for each employee is difficult to achieve with the software. Leave management is restricted to admininistrator alone.
I now use a different service because I was tired of the lack of organization in this regard, and the implication that by expecting more, I was being unreasonable.
My biggest frustration is inability to sign documents. I still have to use Docusign then upload the documentation into the individual profiles instead of kicking it off directly during onboarding.

Cons

Tracking and paying our Contractors/Consultants/1099NEC’s is still not working after several weeks and has cost us much money, stress, confusion, frustration and time.
Lack of customer service, lack of follow-through from support staff to set up system, missing major components of software, lack of response when requesting assistance.
Our "senior" implementation specialist was awful and did not fully set our system up.

Great product, could be more user friendly and intuitive

Reviewed 6 years ago

I did my research. This is the lowest cost time tracker and scheduler that has all the features I need (and much more that I don't but nice to know they are there). It takes a little getting used to, but the customer service is top notch and helps you find your way around until you get the hang of it.

Pros

Great Customer Service Integrates with Gusto payroll Low cost

Cons

Not user friendly enough

Great payroll system

Reviewed 3 years ago

Makes people more accountable. They show up in time

Pros

GPS time stamp on clock in and clock out make it easy to make sure everyone is where there are supposed to be.

Cons

I would think it to be useful to use this as our direct deposit system instead of using this and gusto.

Simple, Employee Management and Payroll Software

Reviewed 3 years ago

I am a user of the service. Access my Paystubs, tax forms, etc. Nuetral experience with no complaints.

Pros

Easy to find what you are looking for in the portal. Paystubs, notifications, and Paid TIme off modules are simple and easy to use.

Cons

There are more innovative companies in the indusry. See Gusto, Zenefits, and other new comers that have been changing the landscape

Vendor response

Thank you for taking the time to share your feedback! It is great to hear that you are enjoying your Paycor experience. Have a great day!

Great Product

Reviewed 6 years ago
Pros

This software is so easy to use, it makes keeping track of employee times so easy and it integrates with Gusto (our payroll software) and it integrates with Quickbooks if you need it.

Cons

I think the interface of the scheduling could be a little easier to use. I have trouble making the shifts and then being able to edit them.

Very easy to use!

Reviewed 5 years ago
Pros

Love the Gusto integration and the easy way to see and approve timecard entries. It is nice that I am able to approve all the entries at once instead of having to do them individually.

Cons

It would be nice to be able to send to Gusto from a generated payroll report, and to be able to edit the timer entries based on number of hours instead of clock in and out time.
