Employees can also view their schedules and request time off from their phone or web browser, and managers are given access to vacation and sick leave balances when approving requests.

Paycor’s payroll software includes tools for managing tax calculations and filing, 401 (k) data, workers’ compensation, pay stubs, W-2s, and 1099s, electronic child support payments, and more. Employees can login to update their contact, tax, and direct deposit details, with administrators notified automatically.

It has tabs that show time worked and Sick leave and vacation pay and is well organized and easy to view no issues just glitchy mobile site for Android

Pros

Time tracking is easy and I like the site layout much better than ADP

Cons

Only thing I disliked it if you don't use the app the mobile site is very glitchy and needs work. I use often while doing contracts for Intermed

We have been able to reduce paperwork and personnel tracking, automate hiring and onboarding, quickly process payroll, manage timekeeping, and process performance reviews and merit increases with ease.

Pros

Paycor has been a fabulous tool for our overall HRIS and Payroll needs. It has made our HR department run so much more smoothly.

Cons

We had to implement our "Go Live" during COVID so we did not have any onsite support as we had originally planned

Lack of Customer Service was the main reason leaving Paycor. I used to have to figure a lot of things out myself because I got misinformed from a client service rep or different/conflicting info from reps. I would get a different rep each time I called/there was a lot of turnover. The reps also didn’t seem to be trained as well. They could answer simple questions, but not if I had a complicated one. Also, ACA was REALLY time consuming and cumbersome.

Pros

The positives of Paycor is that the system is easy to navigate, I liked the colors/format, and really liked the way I could build any report I wanted and it was easy to play around with the formats. I also liked that the payroll reports about populated with each payroll and I could pull them at any time.

Cons

I had talked to reps several times about the issues I had with the lack of customer service, emails not being returned, the 401k file options, GL issues, etc. and there didn't seem to be changes. I would go in the back end of the program to fix things myself (like GL, enter deductions, earnings, etc.) just to get it done. In payroll world you can't be waiting around for responses and you need reps that know the product. With Proliant... I have one payroll rep, one Benefits, rep, and one GL rep.

Overall, very positive experience. Website timeouts are an issue, but the ease of use is a good trade off.

Pros

I like the ease of use and the ability to onboard users. Very straightforward. Non-technical folks can use this product easily.

Cons

Integration options are somewhat limited. The site often times out and time cards have to be manually adjusted often.

Overall, I've had very little trouble with Paycor. I am able to log in successfully especially if I am close to WiFI. I am also able to take time off and print my pay stubs with ease. I also like having the option to print my W2s at tax time. I wish there was an offline capability to log in so once you did come near your work work WiFi, it would clock you in at your original punch time.

Pros

Clocking into work by phone is as modern as it gets. Just a few clicks and your logged in for work. You can still do it by desktop (a good option if your phone is out of order or has a dead battery), but the phone is still more convenient. It also shows your location, proving you were at work or very close to it should doubts arise.

Cons

If you're an area where your mobile data and your work WiFI dont' reach (deadspot), it can be hard to log in. You either miss a punch or you get the "circle death" and app locks up.
