I got paid $11 an hour but took the job in spite of that for the benefits.

Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

ProsYou can be gone about 20% of the time if you use your PTO and are an employee in good standing. The absenteeism was quite high especially on Fridays and Mondays.

ConsThe pay was abysmal. Even if you were a college graduate you started out at $11 an hour and after a 2 week training program in Rochester you still only were raised to $12 an hour. They should pay their employees a living wage because their services are very expensive to the customers. At least that's what the customers claimed.

Also the employee turnover was quite high. Besides that they reassigned customers to different payroll specialists kind of often and the customers did not like that.

Advice to Senior ManagementDon't be cheap! This 2013 not 1984! Where is all the money you make going? To the C.E.O.? To the shareholders? Take care of your employees who actually do the hard work!

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
