"When interviewing for a position as a payroll manager, be prepared to talk about tough situations that you have resolved in the past as well as you knowledge of the tools currently used in the process such as Microsoft Excel and other financial software. Payroll is a crucial part of any business and so employers will be looking for candidates who portray confidence and trustworthiness in their trade. CPP certification is a huge advantage in the hiring process as well as knowledge of payroll regulation on local, state, and federal levels."
Have you ever had to terminate anyone and how did you handle it?
I spoke to the employee a few times and documented the conversations. I put the person on a performance plan. However, in the end the actual termination was handled by HR with me sitting in on the process.
