Current Employee - Senior Client Service Representative in Irving, TX (US)

I have been working at Paychex full-time (more than 3 years)

Pros

You could move up in pay somewhat quickly. The people that I met were GREAT, I made some lifelong friends.

Cons

Very stressful most people that worked there had about 100 clients and would also have to answer calls in the queue. They would go back on their word when it came to promotions, I knew people that were promoted and made less in that position than people that were hired off the street because apparently there is a rule that no one is allowed more than a dollar increase. So going from Data Entry where the pay was $11 people were only allowed to go to $12 when outsiders that were hired made $13 to $14. Most people I knew were on anti-anxiety medication that was prescribed to them after working at PayChex.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Hire more people so that there is not such a high client to rep ratio. That would help with morale with the reps on the Major Market Services side.

    I have been working at Paychex full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    Great benefits and hours. Supervisors are very understanding and helpful. Fun events. Gret workplace environment. Culture is to give the client what they need.

    Cons

    The initial training is subpar. Pay is below average. Products seem to always be rushed out the door before they are ready.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Wait to put the products out the door. Invest in more education and realistic training to the employees who support the products. Once they know the products, put it out so they are able to truly help the clients.

    Pros

    Large company with brand recognition

    Cons

    No advancement opportunities with Sales Managers who only look at what you can do for them each month not what you have already done.
