Pros

I love that it allows employees the ability to access and change their profiles and be responsible for their timecards.
I love how user friendly this product is for everyone. Everything is very self explanatory and if you have any questions, customer service is very helpful and patient.
Overall our rapidly growing business was due for a professional, easy, and affordable tool to manager payroll, benefits, HR related things, etc. and this was perfect.

Pros

I like the GUI the most as the simplicity and the ease of use of this tool makes it a fantastic product.
FAR better than Tempworks in functionality. A true CRM/ATS with modern-day capabilities - as most of the top 20 ATS's have.
I like Bullhorn for many reasons. The ease in using it; the amount of different thing you can use it for; the technical support is great and retrieving reports are easy to get.

Cons

We have been very frustrated with our implementation and ongoing service. They push to go live in a very short amount of time but did a terrible job of working to make sure the set up was right.
I have had several daily timecards messed up because of this.
When researching Paycom the only negative review I seemed to come across was difficulty with the software.

Cons

Terrible company with awful service, poor values, who put more effort in selling their product than delivering it.
It seems as though there's a Bullhorn outage at least 2 to 3 times per month that negatively impacts our workflow and the development time is ridiculous to say the least.
Its been problematic and terrible since the beginning. We will be switching in short order.

So easy to send over your jobs and their HR platform is perfect for your needs. All you need to do is just look to see what plan works for you and you are all set! You are in the driver seat.

Cons

It can be a little more expensive than other ATS out there

Paycom is definitely a better option than we had when we used ADP, more intuitive and much easier to navigate and much less manual processes.

Still a little clunky. I’m not a fan of the ATS they provide and would rather use something else.

Not the worst, but not the best

Reviewed 4 years ago

Paycom was supposed to be our ATS, HRIS, and payroll/PTO. Now it only serves in the latter capacity. While all software of this type offers challenges, Paycoms fundamental shortcomings and terrible customer service (in relation to ATS support) had us running for the hills.

Pros

The employer employee interface made W2s, PTO requests, and time entries very simple. The Finance team loved Paycom, and we are sticking with them to serve this specific purpose.

Cons

The document management system was atrocious- once a document is uploaded the title cannot be changed so user error can complicate reporting and sorting. The ATS function was the absolute worst. Very little integrations, out of compliance with new state regulations and a lackluster response to our repeated concerns.

Vendor response

We appreciate you sharing your feedback with us and we'd like to learn more how we can create a 5-star experience for you. Please reach out directly to your Paycom specialist so we may learn more.

Highly customizable, but may not be a one-size fits all

Reviewed 5 years ago

Overall a pretty good solution especially for a small business. Customization is available at set up, so there aren't alot of programming fees, etc. If you are OK with the limitations, could be a good solution for you.

Pros

- Customizable allows for customizable fields - Great tool for small business, because it is priced reasonably - Lots of modules that you can integrate or add on - Ability to add training and track employees who have used this system - Ability to do performance review in the system - Employees can view pay stubs, benefits elections, 401k through an easy interface

Cons

- Has their own ATS, so they aren't willing to create interfaces with other systems - So customizable that some of the end processes are clunky and don't work well

Functional, easy to maneuver, good product for the money

Reviewed 5 years ago
Pros

The system is fairly quick to be updated. They release new updates on a quarterly, if not monthly, basis. Way better than ADP.

Cons

Paycom can be a little behind the times on the updates and features you see in other HRIS products. The built-in ATS integration wasn't good for us.

Vendor response

Thank you for your review and feedback. We would like to encourage you to connect with your Paycom specialist regarding any questions you may have or regarding features you would like to see. We definitely would like to hear more from you!

We implemented Paycom 11 months ago....so far we love it!

Reviewed 5 years ago

We utilize everything with the exception of the recruiting module...hopefully when our current ATS contract expires we will also move to use this module with Paycom as well.

Pros

From the employees to our managers, to the systems admins we all agree the system is easy to use! I also love the fact that there is an instruction for just about every function in the system. Tis is super useful when training new supervisors/managers and staff.

Cons

I don't like the fact that the employee orgs are not readily available and built into the system. I see there is a new feature for this and I am currently working through the steps to activate this feature.

Vendor response

Thank you for the review! If you need any assistance setting up new features, please let your Paycom specialist know.

Covers a lot of HR functions, but some areas are not straight forward.

Reviewed 4 years ago

Simplified and made us a more green business!

Pros

Offers everything that an HR department would need. The ATS system is super helpful and payroll processing went smoothly. Our customer service rep was always available and responsive. He was willing to walk us through the process each step of the way.

Cons

However, the performance management and document creator dashboards were not intuitive. You are not given all of the capabilities you need to have reviews and the document creator seems to be a different language... and is not straight forward...edible, online-edible....who knows! Then you can't edit a document that you need to each year that your work comp policy changes unless you re-create the entire document.

Vendor response

This is a great alternative to ADP! If you are looking for a new HRIS system, check it out.

Reviewed 5 years ago

This has allowed us to simply our new hire onboarding dramatically. Additionally, it allows us to significantly cut down on the paperwork surrounding our employees as all forms can be electronically signed and saved in the system.

Pros

For the price, its a great alternative to the big box companies offering their HRIS platforms. Their payroll, benefits administration, documents facilitation, etc is excellent. This product is great if you are looking to pull your company out of the stone age as we have. We especially like the electronic new hire paperwork option.

Cons

Talent Management portal sometimes lacks the applicant flow over other ATS platforms. There are some quirks about the system (as all systems have it) where you can't delete duplicate profiles, limitations with dynamic access groups for managers, etc. But they are always improving.

Vendor response

Christopher, thank you for the review. We appreciate your feedback regarding the ATS and will share it with our product team. Please don't hesitate to reach out to your Paycom specialist if you have any other suggestions regarding features you would like to see. We appreciate your partnership and look forward to hearing from you.

Inferior Technology

Reviewed 4 years ago
Pros

Paycom is consistently working on new updates. They have an online system that is seldom down. The login feature is user friendly.

Cons

The system technology and capability to process basic payroll schedules, and basic custom reports are extremely limited. The ATS system foes not retain a candidate pool of applicants that have applied and were booted out. There technology does not offer a 360 401k EDI file. There timecard can not total hours outside if payroll dates.

We use Paycom for both our ATS and Payroll with ease. Our employees find the platform easy to use.

Reviewed 4 years ago
Pros

For Payroll, the cost of this service is better than other platforms for a business less than 200 employees. It's easy for our employees to use on their phone for clocking in and out and managers find it easy to approve time bi-weekly. For the ATS, it really cuts down on double entry throughout the recruiting process. Fairly simply user interface that really extends a user's access to their talent acquisition. Customer service has also been great with our rep coming into our office on a somewhat regular basis. You don't see that kind of attention for a software provider.

Cons

While this isn't the case for just Paycom's ATS, you are unable to manually enter a applicant into the system from the recruiter dashboard. It can only handle applicants who apply online either through a job board or your website. They offer an API but it's priced so that you can't justify it. On the Payroll side, I personally don't have any issues with the system. Maybe not having more self service tools? We use IP based time management and you have to call them directly to update those IP addresses.

Vendor response

Trevor, thank you for the review and feedback. We will share it with our product development team. If you have additional feedback or suggestions, please reach out to your Paycom specialist.
