Pros

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.

JD

Jessica D.

I love that it allows employees the ability to access and change their profiles and be responsible for their timecards.

Kim B.

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

The ease of use and the cost is the best for a small company like mine. With only 2 checks to write on a weekly basis, this program is easy and affordable.

HS

Hollee S.

I also appreciate the tax report automatic filing. The customer service is great and the representatives, with whom I have spoken, are knowledgeable, helpful and friendly.

VG

Virginia G.

I love how easy it is to use, the price, and that it integrates with my current square system. The built in time clock is amazing and so easy to use.

LM

Laci M.

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.

GL

Gayle L.

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.

KD

Kristin D.

Cons

The inability to schedule same day payments, but there isn't really a Payroll software that does this quite right.

ST

Stefani T.

I disliked that one time, when I had a major--and time sensitive--issue, that Square took 5 business days to get me a reply.

Robert D.

Square charges a fee per employee which can get pricey with a large team.
