      Pros

      Friendly people, no offshoring, nice office facility

      Cons

      They load you with 100%-120% workload and no prospects of good merit increase as the company is committed to cut G&A function's costs

        Business Outlook

        Pros

        Benefits, PTO, and a decent salary. They hire people with little to no sales experience and you don’t have to have a college degree like most places I have worked.

        Cons

        My experience working at Paylocity was far from ideal. The training provided was insufficient, leaving me ill-equipped for the job's demands. The work environment was excessively stressful, with unreasonably high expectations and constant pressure to meet targets. The company's internal dynamics were problematic, with multiple representatives competing fiercely for the same business, creating a hostile atmosphere. Senior professionals were known to take over accounts, hindering career growth for others. The turnover rate was concerning, witnessing numerous colleagues quitting or getting terminated within a short period. Management's emphasis on hitting quotas overshadowed support for employees. There was a lack of understanding regarding market realities, making it difficult to achieve success in selling the product. Client interactions were often strained, with dissatisfaction stemming from the company's practices and service. Remote work flexibility, often touted during recruitment, turned out to be limited. The company's promises did not align with the daily reality, and the overall experience was disheartening. If considering Paylocity, thorough research and consideration of the challenges mentioned here are advised. It's a workplace that may not be suitable for everyone. The recruitment experience at Paylocity further added to the disappointment. Recruiters displayed an alarming lack of professionalism by ghosting candidates deemed unfit, rather than providing constructive feedback for growth. The elevation of individuals with a mere 1-2 years of recruiting experience to "senior recruiter" highlighted the rapid turnover issue within the company. The treatment of candidates was deplorable, with recruiters often displaying disrespect. Senior recruiters, with minimal experience, seemed more focused on hitting hiring targets than on the candidates' welfare. Referrals, made in good faith to boost sales, resulted in my acquaintances being ghosted after the second interview. The rushed recruitment process, seemingly geared towards collecting hiring bonuses, left a bitter taste. Shockingly, rumors circulated about recruiters mocking candidates and their interview responses, reflecting a lack of professionalism within the recruitment team. Recruiters, mirroring the trend of sales reps, left the company swiftly. The desperation to fill positions quickly led to the recruitment of individuals with little to no sales experience, contributing to the revolving door culture within Paylocity. All these factors underscored a work environment where longevity is a rare commodity, and potential candidates are treated as expendable assets. Also, no one over 40 works here unless they’re stuck in the HCM industry and have no other place to go or have no college degree and are limited in their options.

                        Cons

                        Maybe this is by chance, but I was not very lucky with managers. They were micromanaged and put their "I" ahead of the team. Heard something similar from other colleagues

                      Alex L.

                      Applied for a job a few weeks back, got a call from HR yesterday morning about an interview next week. She mentioned she'd shoot me an email with all the interview details, but so far, my inbox is empty. Assuming I'll hear from her early next week, is it normal for them to expect me to show up for an in-person interview on short notice, like couple days?
