Paycor has great products for payroll and the Paycor team is always responsive.

2018-02-20

Easy to track time across different work groups for reporting requirements and get the import file that we need to record cost accurately to different cost centers.

Pros

Set up for whatever we need is very simple compared to another larger payroll processing company we have used.

Cons

We could benefit from other features in time and attendance that are not available, like selecting a limited range of work groups an employee can access.

Pros

Self-Service Good UI Good mobile employee functionality with GPS (mobile punches)

Cons

No integration with Quickbooks (though that was how it was sold to me) clunky back-end data to GL migration HORRIBLE Customer service - your average hold times to get a human is at least ONE HOUR.

Great payroll software

2021-05-25

I used Paycor for two years for payroll and time reporting.

Pros

Easy to use for both admins and employees. Robust reporting features.

Cons

There was no ability to create electronic workflows for setting up/terminating access when multiple roles (HR, IT, Payroll, etc.) had parts to play in the process.

Easy employee time tracking and PTO request management.

The interface is pretty easy to navigate.

HR in the Cloud

2018-09-03

Paycor is comparatively modern and offers a more robust platform for HR needs in the cloud. Employee satisfaction with recording time, leave, and access to forms and legal documents improved dramatically with Paycor.

Pros

Paycor has seen marked improvement over the years I've been using it, now sporting a useful dashboard that presents the most-needed information at a glance.

Cons

While the worksheet for entering leave and time worked has been redesigned, the employee management area (where a supervisor approves leave, time cards, and tracks employee projects) remains dated and does not match the rest of the site.

The overall experience is good as the program fulfills its purpose well, making life easier for companies that need payroll software.

Valuable Time Keeping Tool and HR Tool

2021-06-16

You almost needed a degree in HR management to use it.

Pros

I have found no better system to input time or track my leave. The interface is intuitive and lets you do a variety things such as print your check stub.

Cons

I have found in several instances, that the time punch stays pending or finally records the punch an hour later when using Wi-Fi or mobile data (a phone).

Review of Paycor Perform

2018-06-12

Pros

Time management portion of the program is a great feature. Having the paygrid to double check accuracy is a nice feature.

Cons

Creating reports is difficult to follow; Keeping track of time off doesn't follow the school year and it automatically adds hours at the beginning of the year.

Easy to use payment tool

2019-01-08

It has helped in the following: Uploading new employee details, attendance and salary management, storage of employee data, dashboard for achievements and acknowledgements.

Pros

The best part is I get to see my attendance, vacations, requests everything the moment I log in to the system. And having an app for the same is even better, I can log in anything and make requests or approve requests. This comes handy when I am in between a meeting or out on a tour.

Cons

The customer service is not as corporative as expected plus it doesn't have an approve on email system, I need to log in to the software and then approve a request.

It's functional

2016-10-25

I wish that I could see all my billing invoices for all my accounts on the reports page. I have to individually select each account to see the billing invoice charges and that is very time consuming.

Pros

I can access accounts from anywhere including a mobile app.

Cons

Reports and analytics very difficult to navigate for multiple accounts.

Built for recruiters by recruiters BUT since Paycor bought them progress has slowed

2019-02-16

For our third party staffing agency this is our core operating system for job requisition and candidate activity.

Pros

Dashboard and report analytics are easy.

Cons

Falling behind on functionality like SMS integration. Cost becoming prohibitive for SMBs and larger enterprises need more robust solutions like iCims.

Easy to use, intuitive

2018-02-20

Pros

Functionality, accessibility, and custom reporting allow me to get to the raw data for external reporting

Cons

Help searches do not always direct to the right area - allowing access to time clock for new employees should have a standard template with all items to address on one screen, rather than jumping from screen to screen to allow complete access

I use this software every day to schedule hundreds of employees over multiple sites. It works.

2018-03-08

Automated workflows related to scheduling, comparing time worked vs. time scheduled in an easy-to-use format, company-wide visibility of schedules, and superior customer service.

Pros

The best parts about the software are the intuitive interface and relative ease that employees feel approaching the program for scheduling and clocking in and out.

Cons

The data export doesn't always include all the fields that I need.

Paycor has been a much more user friendly platform than our previous software used for payroll and HR.

2018-06-18

Pros

User friendly interfaces, ease of finding information for one employee in one location, tracking of PTO is a much easier process

Not all information contained in employee screens can be found in the report & analytics section, Perform does not feed all needed information over into the Time & Attendance option that we use
