Featured Review

Current Employee - Executive Sales Representative

I have been working at Paycom full-time for more than a year

Pros

Most sales reps who want to work for Paycom may initially be allured by the high earning potential. And that certainly was a top enticer for me as well. But what numerous reviews fail to illuminate... are the tools Paycom provides to help not only get you there, but keep you there, and motivate you along the way. While I was an experienced sales rep, the industry was new for me, so I appreciated the dedicated 9 week new hire training to help me ramp up, as well as the consistent dedicated efforts the company puts into developing our sales force as our technology, our competitors, and the world continuously evolve. As I am now a more veteran rep looking for career growth, Paycom offers a leadership development program to help me explore if a management position at Paycom is right for me and to give me the tools necessary to step into that role. Finally, I can't speak enough about the mental management. This job is not easy. It's certainly a grind to be on the hunt for new business in a competitive environment week in and week out. And the job comes with the usual sales roller coaster of ups and downs. But if you can find a sales manager that believes in developing the "whole you", as I have, then you have an organization that's fully behind you to help you on your path to achieving your own dreams - personally and professionally.

Cons

It is certainly a culture of metrics and accountability, which can border on micro-management depending on your manager. If you are someone who thrives well an environment like that, then you will... thrive at Paycom. However, if you are a sales rep with a mindset of "give me my quota and leave me be to do my thing"... this is not the right environment for you. While compensation is based on your annual number, there are weekly metrics.
