Pros

I like the ease of scheduling and the ease of accessibility. My employees enjoy having their schedule at their fingertips at all times.

HL

Holly L.

It utilizes all of my employees' availabilities and I love having the ability to see that my employee has acknowledged their schedules.

RJ

Rachel J.

We loved all of the features and integrations. With the new law that was supposed to go into effect for salary overtime, this was the perfect software to choose.

Pros

Sling is the easiest and most useful application we have for our business. We love it and all of our employees love it.

RS

Rebecca S.

I must say, I do wonder how long it will remain free. It's a great product and certainly deserving of a monthly cost affordable to small business as well as large corporations.

JM

Jackie M.

Thank you Sling for generously offering such a great app.

LV

Cons

My only bad experience is that I had to restart my phone a few times because of the GPS problems when I was trying to clock in, which was annoying and time-consuming.

ZB

I did not realize this when signing up, and find it a maddening waste of time when you have a real problem to solve (and you will have problems!).

JL

Jamie L.

If you make a mistake and accidentally alter the availability for one day you have to go back to that day and fix it before adjusting your availability.

Christopher H.

Cons

Sling seemed to have constant problems loading, or randomly needing to reload, and then having troubles doing so.

RZ

Rob Z.

My personal feelings after having to pay such high prices for cable channels on the market we just had to drop them. Someone told us about sling and to try it.

Sling

I never missed my shift

Reviewed 3 years ago
Pros

My boss used Sling to organize our shifts. I always knew when I work and never missed my shift and always knew with which colleague I work that day.

Cons

There's nothing I have noticed as a flaw to this software-it simply helps me organize my time. Maybe an interesting feature would be to ping boss when he forgets to fill shifts for that or next week. This way we can only call him and ask to do so.
