    Would not recommend this system due to the implementation process. Introduced to this system via their sales rep by the name of [name removed]. He made several promises that Paycom system wasn’t equipped to handle. Once implementation started, we quickly realized that this system was unable to handle to work requirements needed for our staffing agency. Our launch date was pushed back twice. Our implementation specialist was not 100% trained on the capabilities of Paycom. Our team found ourselves having weekly meetings going over the same information week by week, with no results. We found ourselves having to keep up with our many questions, as our implementation specialist, would not follow up on answers to questions. Hence he wasn’t 100% fluent on the system he was training our team on. There payroll department had no idea what a 125 form was, which was another red flag. Our company loss $5k on the one time implementation fee and all we got was an apology from the sales rep, stating Paycom would love to partner with you in the future. PLEASE, PLEASE save your money and go with another company that is more versed in their system.

    I had a very similar experience. I went with Paycom instead of Paycor due to the pricing. I was totally misled. The way the salesperson evidently did the deal was by cutting many of the basic things I asked for and was sold like Paid Time Off tracking and other basic things expected out of a payroll, benefits, hr, and training system. They are frauds.
