    I have been working at Paylocity full-time (More than 5 years)


    There are so many Pro's to Paylocity, but we will attempt to consolidate them into a few thoughts.

    First off is the company culture at PCTY. This is a pay if forward help your neighbor type of environment where we all work together!

    Second is the product itself. As a technology company, Webpay is our flagship single data base end to end solution solution and it had more than 150 enhancements in FY19 alone. PCTY has organically built more than 15 different HR modules vs. the 3 when i arrived 6 years ago.

    Third - PCTY has helped me grow as a human and as a person. Since i have arrived here 6 years ago, personally i got married, had 2 kids, bought and sold a couple of homes and have made multiple circle's of excellence and been one of the nations top reps before my promotion to Director. The professional environment and continual development of PCTY was a huge factor that allowed for my personal growth.

    Partner events - Last year we hosted 2 partner events, 1 at Concession Country Club and 2. Miami Raceway, we went and raced McLaren's and Lambo's to thank our partners for their continued partnership.

    On a final note, i am happier now with my decision to come to PCTY than I was when i wrote my first glassdoor review 6 years ago. One of the primary reasons is the group of people that i get to work with here in South Florida. The team itself is special and it is a honor to get to work with each and every one of them!


    There are not many cons other than this is a work from home job and for some that presents challenges. Aside from that, the only cons could be considered industry cons as this is a very competitive industry with high levels of accountability.

    Account Manager Interview

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview


    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Paylocity (Lake Mary, FL) in December 2017.


    The moment you step into that interview room, all anxiety goes flying out the window. True, there are three managers present for the interview, but everyone at Paylocity is down to earth and genuinely interested in both your qualifications and story. The interview itself is a standard interview, but it leaves you with a sense of belonging that no other job has successfully achieved. You are not being judged in that interview room, you are being listened to.
